How would you describe your perfect Valentine's Day? Is there a romantic dinner, red roses, and candlelight? Would you have a decadent chocolate dessert with soft background music? Maybe you see a box with beautiful necklace or something else inside. For me, the perfect Valentine's Day is none of those things. That's why I need a casual Valentine's Day dress for the laidback lady.

I like a little romance as much as the next girl but I prefer to keep it casual. I'd rather cozy up over a tea light at our favorite Mexican restaurant than a pricey place with every other couple. I love chocolate dessert but take me for rich hot chocolate instead of a whole box. Though to be honest that might be due to the high number of Whitman's Samplers I get as a teacher.

This dress is the perfect compromise for Valentine's Day. I don't really have it in the budget to buy a one day only kind of dress. I need something that's going to work for me! That's why this swing-y jersey dress with this sweet floral pattern does the trick. I feel a little more dressed up than my usual t-shirt and jeans but I'm still going to be comfortable perched in my favorite corner booth. The scoop neck shows my favorite amount of skin (I mean, it's Valentine's Day after all). Also fishnets: they are still sexy right?
