Valentine's Day Collaboration.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!
Back in December, most of these Stylish Ladies and myself showed you our own personal take on a dressed up New Year's Eve outfit. It was such a fun and very stylish post if I must say so humbly. Well this time we are back to celebrate Valentine's Day with our readers. Linda is currently on a warm climate vacation (lucky girl!) and Elegant Alecz unfortunately couldn't join us either. Beautiful and Elegant Mommy Blogger Megan who was very busy in December and couldn't join us then, is here with us today. So, Jessica, Emily, Monica, Megan and I are here to show you 5 different outfits as Stylish, Feminine and Dressy Options for you to celebrate Valentine's Day or Valentine's Weekend. I love doing posts like this not only because of the awesome interaction with fellow bloggers whom I admire and follow, but also because I like to see how everyone interprets the same challenge or what everyone wears to the same occasion.

A closeup of all 5 looks together.

Here is what each one of us had to say about our outfits and why we chose them for Valentine's Day.

"When I happened upon this dress at Nordstrom Rack, I knew it was the perfect way to incorporate Valentine’s Day romance into my wardrobe without being too saccharine. (I’m not one to go overboard with pink and red on the big day.) This dress stays true to my style with a whimsical print that’s wearable throughout the year, thanks to the graphic black and white design."

"When Pinkblush asked me to share their products, I jumped at the chance. I fell in love with this floral dress and had to style it for Valentine’s Day. I decided to add a little edge with the leather jacket and lace up shoes against the soft floral pattern."

"For this Valentine's Look that can take me from work to a date night, I decided to shop my closet. I have always loved pairing Leopard with Red. For this look I mixed prints by adding a subtle pinstriped jacket on top. And since all the clothes are items I have owned for a long time, I did accessorize with new jewelry from Rocksbox."

"Valentine’s Day is a day where I want to feel girly. Embrace my femininity and get all dolled-up. That’s exactly what this outfit does for me. The daintiness of the lace skirt and the bold red top - even the nude heels! I feel pretty in it. Whether it be drinks with the girls or date night with my boy, I’m ready!"

"Hey Everyone! First and foremost thank you Ada for hosting this collaboration for Valentine's Day. My look is extremely subtle for those of you who don't like to wear too much red or anything too festive for Valentine's Day. This is something that I would definitely wear to dinner because it's black with a pop of pink, and the pants have enough room if I eat too much at dinner with my date!"
