Valentine’s date night dress and gift ideas

Loveeee Valentine’s Day!  Everything about it…. the hearts, the flowers, the chocolate.  If you have a special date night planned, this long sleeve black dress from Nordstrom is so perfect.  I styled it with neutral pumps, but it could also be paired with opaque black tights and booties if you don’t want to show your legs.  (I probably should wear tights next time since I have a few giant bruises on my knees from running lol.)  You’ll want to wear it with a strapless or stick on bra because the top is sheer. (Kind of hard to see in these photos, but you can view the detail/zoom in more here.) For sizing reference, I have on the small and would say it runs pretty fitted.

A simple black dress like this one can always use a fun pair of statement earrings! (These are super lightweight and under $100.)  Every time I wear them I get asked where they are from so I’m thinking they would be a sweet Valentine’s gift for your girlfriends!

My mom, sisters and I always give each other a little something for this girly holiday. Thinking these hoop earrings, these pajamas or this Satin robe would be good gifts this year! You can have your order gift boxed from Nordstrom and even do same day delivery or curbside pickup! (So convenient.)  Nordstrom also offers online gift cards and e-gifting for a last minute shopping solution.

7. My brother actually got me this wireless speaker as a gift a few months ago and as soon as he watched me open it, he said he wanted it for himself.  I ended up getting him one for Christmas lol. It really is a great portable speaker.  I use it almost every day and it would also make a great gift for your guy!

8. This mirror jewelry box is such a good gift idea and the price point is amazing!

9. Cosabella thongs are some of my favorite and this pair is so pretty!
