It’s almost that time of year again…yes, I’m talking about Valentine’s Day! My husband and I don’t usually go out to celebrate it – and we certainly won’t be this year! Nevertheless, I welcome any excuse to wear red! This rainbow striped sweater with the word “amour” on it (French for love, of course) seems very appropriate for a date night at home.
As I’m not actually going out anywhere I don’t really need a bag, but the rainbow faux fur clutch just finishes off the outfit in fitting style. To be honest, I’ll probably swap the sock boots for trainers or slippers and show my bunions some love! The trousers have a little bit of stretch so if I should come home to a delicious meal (hint) I won’t be uncomfortable afterwards. This colourful, comfy outfit is perfect for a cosy date night at home!

For an even cosier option, I could wear my gorgeous cashmere jumper from The Bias Cut (first seen here). The slouchy style and super soft wool makes this a joy to wear. The fabulous kiss motifs are subtle but perfect for a casual Valentine’s date night at home. Again, I’d switch the boots for trainers or glamorous faux fur slippers. (Definitely no need for the hat!) Faux leather leggings are a great way to elevate a casual look and still remain comfortable (thanks elastane!).

“Like many moms, I don’t remember the last time I went out on Valentines Day with just my husband. But, that doesn’t mean we don’t celebrate with a bottle of wine and usually steamed mussels for the 4 of us, and of course a yummy dessert! Jennafer Grace makes the most beautiful, old Hollywood style comfortable pieces – like this 2-piece shimmer set – perfect for lounging in style at home. Today I’m sharing how I style a few of my Jennafer Grace favorites along with a recipe for my favorite cocktail..Cheers!”
“Mr. FTF and I are pretty boring when it comes to at home dates. We like keeping it simple. For us a good time date night at home includes: carryout (I don’t cook!), Netflix, maybe a bowl of popcorn or some type of desert and LAUGHS always lots of laughs! I’m usually dressed super casual – think sweatshirts and sweatpants (I do have the cutest Valentine’s set!)! However since it is the week of LOVE, I’m sharing all of my Valentine’s looks – many can actually be worn year round. By the way, we love to go out and do so at least once a week. Illinois is back open for indoor dining so we have reservations at our favorite restaurant for Valentine’s Day! Hope you feel all the LOVE this week and have many reasons to LOVE BIG!”
“The hubs and I enjoy date nights at home every Sunday night, and they rock for me, because he usually does all the cooking! He also mixes up one heck of a cocktail. I found this beautiful rose top at Target, and styled it with my favorite jeans and booties. I added my Mom’s pearl necklace and felt super fancy! Pop on over for all the deets on my outfit, and that cocktail recipe you are NOT going to want to miss!”
“Wondering what to do for Valentines Day this year? I’ve got you covered with a two part series! Last Friday I created a whole post about what to do for Valentines Day 2021 and today I’m sharing some great outfits to go with a variety of possible dates!”
“This date night at home theme was announced just before my scheduled date night at home for our 11th wedding anniversary. While I had plans to dress up a bit for our special night, my hormones decided otherwise and slammed me with debilitating cramps all night long. And so I ended up spending our date night in my coziest things curled up on the couch! But if I had been able to dress up, I would have worn this comfy black velvet pant suit that is a recent thrift shop acquisition. I love the elastic waistband and wide legs of the pants making them feel more like pajamas than dress pants.
I layered a cowl neck sweater under the velvet cardigan and slipped my cold tootsies into some furry line rose gold mules. A simple tassel necklace and earrings in gold and rose gold completed my look. All set for date night 2021-style!”
A date night outfit to wear at home has to be comfortable and cozy, yet pretty and romantic at the same time. This black floral kimono was a gift to me from my husband. I love to wear it on our home date nights with a romantic camisole. I completed the “Comfy & Cozy” requirement with a pair of soft joggers.
“Date night means dancing for us. Then a sleek fit-and-flare dress is a Must. This dress has too much cleavage for my taste, but works well for layering with a halftee underneath. In Interior Alaska, date night can also be early in the morning. In winter, it’s dark until late in the morning (only 3.5 h of daylight at winter solstice. During the summer, there is daylight 24/7 for 84 days. More on Alaska lifestyle on the blog.
I don’t know about you, but I can probably count on one hand the number of times I’ve actually been out on Valentine’s Eve. I mean, yes, when I was in my twenties with no kids, maybe I might have ventured out. But more often than not, home is where I wanted to be. Why deal with busy restaurants, cold food, harried servers when you can have a romantic Valentine’s date night at home? Sharing some suggestions for fab date nights at home, whether it’s Valentine’s Eve or not!
“I wore this thrifted blue and white heart sweater to date night last weekend paired with my vintage Levi’s jeans, pop of red hand bag and fun sneakers with red shoe laces.”
“For a date night at home, I let Gerben choose his favorite outfit on me! Can it be anymore boring? In my eyes, I don’t even like black and white together. And although he said that I have a lot of beautiful dresses, he likes a black pencil skirt, a simple white blouse and classic pumps. A few simple golden jewelry and, and that is what he likes the most of course…..my black stockings! Oh men…..”
