Today's Everyday Fashion: A Touch of Red

In a conservative office, a full-fledged pink and red outfit will just not fly on Valentine's Day. Still want to show your V-day spirit? Go with a pop of red and a fun printed blouse, and keep the rest of your outfit professional. A wink to the holiday of love, without going to far!

Why this works: Do you have a high-waisted skirt like this one? Layering a thick, elastic belt tricks the eye, making the rise of skirt seem lower and creating a defined waist. (ps. In the left photo my belt was down a little lower than it should have been, whoops!) ;-)

On a personal note - what are you guys up to for Valentine's Day?! Would love to hear how you are celebrating!
