Valentine Date Night + Ageless Style Linkup

Welcome to the February edition of the Ageless Style Link up with this months timely theme of a Valentines Date look.  A red and black combo would typically be my combo but I shared something so similar during our December linkup,  I decided to choose a little softer look.  
Date Night Look
Similar Cold Shoulder here and here
This cold shoulder top is by Karlie and one of my favorite boutique brands.  The clothes are a little different but not so pricey that I feel it's a total splurge.  I'm loving pink right now and this little cold shoulder would be an adorable addition!  
Date Night Look
Initially I planned to wear spiky cage black heels with this outfit until I ran across these booties on sale at Sam Edelman while shopping in Vegas.  I've had my eye on similar booties for several years and the mark down + and extra 20% off sold me!  I loved how they added a little extra flare to this outfit.  
Date Night Look
I did break down and buy a pair of the Spanx faux leather leggings which also come in a great pewter color.  I loved the more inexpensive pair I purchased in the fall as well but really was interested in the higher waist to keep things a little smoother.  
Date Night Look
This little black purse is deceiving and actually packs really nicely.  I typically carry my iPad, a small compact bag and a wallet with room to spare.  The strap is long enough to not be awkward putting on your shoulder but short enough it feels secure while wearing.  
Date Night Look
Sorry gals, this guy was a steal but he is all mine!  We had so much fun on our little adult getaway to Vegas.  I'll be looking forward to our next date night! 

Valentines Day is quickly approaching!  What are you wearing to celebrate?  Grab your fashion post and link up!
