For the Love of Fashion Series: Valentine’s Day School Outfits

Valentine's day teen outfits teen fashion blog
Next week a well-known holiday is coming around, Valentine’s Day. Some people dread this holiday and others take the day to appreciate the people they love. I love Valentine’s Day because I’m a lover not a hater. Today I’m kicking off my Valentine’s Day series For the Love of Fashion and will continue to add Valentine’s day related posts throughout the week. This series will give you ideas on what to get for your special person, what to do that day, and of course tips on what to wear. Something that I struggle on every year is what I will be wearing to school that day. I always try to look special on Valentine’s Day, I have never had a boyfriend but I do like giving a good impression. I decided to help out you guys as well, I know girls have the same problem with trying to find something appropriate to wear to school. I came up with four different outfits to give each type of girl a choice. For girls who want to dress more elegant that day, the light pink outfit on the far left is perfect. The soft color palate used and modest clothing screams elegance. Girls that want to dress romantic and flirty can go with the magenta dress with the polka dot shirt under as that bow shouts “I’m girly”. Some girls have a more sporty personality and want to dress comfortably so I created an outfit with the green and orange sweater to keep that comfort. For girls that prefer a more grunge look, I created the outfit on the far right so that they can stay in their comfort zone, yet dress appropriately for that day. I know that if I were to pick an outfit out of these choices I would either go for the elegant one because I like to dress modest, or the romantic one for the spirit of the holiday. Which outfit would you choose, and why?

Simple Grocery Shopping Outfit

People know me well for always going shopping, but there is certain things I just can’t stand shopping for, groceries. Grocery shopping is boring especially since I don’t get to ride in the cart anymore like when I was little.  Sometimes if I was especially adorable that day the people at the bakery would even give me a free cookie. Now grocery shopping consists of me walking around aisles looking for food that I have seen a hundred times already, but the worst part is I can’t even eat it yet. The only excitement I get is when we get to the make up aisle. <> Every Sunday it’s a debate with my sister over who gets the “pleasure” to shop for food. If it was shopping for clothes, my hand would fly up as quick as Katniss Everdeen’s went up and say “I volunteer”. Of course I do get to go all the time because my sister doesn’t like shopping, she would rather stay home and do chores.

Something I always do before shopping is try to figure out what to wear. Some people don’t really care what they look like when they go out, but I never know who I could find at one of these stores. One time, during one of our shopping outings I was approached by a modeling scout. From then on, I knew I had to look good and dress like I’m trying to make an impression for that same scout wherever I go. I know, it’s ridiculous! I usually dress casual when I go out yet I like to keep it stylish at the same time. I created this outfit because it definitely looks like something I would wear to go out grocery shopping. The dress is a light denim material with a polka dot pattern on it. The dress has the overalls top, I don’t like that look but somehow this dress makes it work and it looks pretty. Especially like the neckline of the orange cropped tee that you can wear to fall over your shoulder. That little detail makes the outfit better because it’s not expected. The tights ties up the belt, purse, and shoes to the outfit. Plus, I’ve done some more pattern play with the polka dot pattern over a striped pattern. The lace socks over the boot and tights are super adorable and break up all the brown going on at the bottom. I used blue for the jewelry because there was already too much brown and orange going on, the blue helped break it up. There is certain shopping I like, and certain shopping I dread. What type of shopping do you like or hate doing?
