When it comes to Valentines Day, there tends to be a stigma of dressing, one of which puts a great deal of pressure to find an outfit that might be worn only a handful of times (we're looking at you, red pencil skirt). This year we're choosing a low-key celebration and searching our closets to find styles to match - casual, yet still fun and festive! Added bonus: each piece costs less than $100! 

For Dinner and Drinks at Your Favorite Neighborhood Haunt
 One way to add a bit of sparkle to your outfit while keeping it subtle is to pull on something with texture, like a sequin top, in a darker hue. You can pair it with jeans (like above), to keep it casual, then throw on your favorite pair of heels to complete the look. (top, $16 ) (jeans, $80) (skirt, $20)

For The Day Date
While pinks and reds are hues that are usually associated with the holiday, mixing in a little minimalism with a fun shoe can be a great way to celebrate without overdoing it. If you’re one to shy away from a bold color and like the idea of minimalism with a slight kick, this is the perfect casual (and comfortable) combination. To Buy: shoes, $80 To Buy: similar striped sweater top ($39) To Buy: jeans ($128)
