Hi everyone, welcome back to Tantalizingly Tasteful! Valentine’s Day is just a week away, so I figured it was time to get started on some outfit inspiration. Whether you’re going out on a date, hitting up a party, or just heading out with your girls, I hope you find some inspiration in my ideas, and that you have a great Valentine’s Day!
Pink Midi Skirt
I always wear some shade or red or pink on Valentine’s Day, so I thought I’d center this look around a pink mini skirt with a high waist. There are so many different silhouettes to choose from, so pick one that flatters your body and you feel most comfortable in.
Cropped Graphic Tee
To keep your look casual and cool, pair your skirt with a cropped (or knotted) graphic tee. Something in a light neutral color like white or grey with heart or love graphics is great for Valentine’s Day. The cropped top will whittle your waist, and a cool knot used to shorten longer shirts and make them appear cropped will draw even more attention to your smallest section and add some instant street-cred. And don’t be afraid to get some red in there! Pale pink and red, contrary to popular belief, can look super cute together!
Depending on the look you want to have, I would pair this outfit either with flats, or a chunky heeled or wedged bootie. A flat with a standout color like maroon or a cool, woven texture adds interest to your outfit. Just make sure your colors don’t clash! As far as heels go, wearing a bootie lets you play up the length of the midi skirt while also giving you a little bit of height. Stick to something chunky or something with a wedge so that you feel comfortable and still look casual cool.
I picture this look with a messy-chic ponytail and headband combo, with some eye catching earrings. I would pair it with a cute, fringed long strap bag and some cute bracelets. To finish it off and keep my toes warm, I would add some tall socks and scrunch them down so they’re just above my shoes.
Now I’d like your feedback! I hope this post gave you some help deciding what to wear for Valentine’s Day! What did you think of this outfit? Do you have any ideas about how you’d execute an outfit like this? What are you planning on wearing for Valentine’s Day, and what are your plans?

Hey everyone, happy July!! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. This summer is a really exciting summer for me because it’s my chance to transition from high school to (gulp) college. I graduated a week ago and I already can’t believe how fast the time is flying. To start off this summer, I’m going to share some of the details of my last few days as a high school senior with you all!!
Thursday, June 25: Senior Prom
Thursday was the day that started it all. Senior prom is the day that everyone spends their high school years dreaming about. It’s the things that (high school) fairy tales are made of. But no one ever tells you how much work it takes!! I was out the door by 10 AM to get my nails done, grabbed a quick coffee and lunch (to go!) with Torie, ran to my hair and makeup appointments at an Ulta store twenty minutes from my house and got home with barely enough time to get ready before my family was supposed to come take pictures with me. And I was still three hours off from the beginning of prom!! To spare all the grueling details, I went to pre-prom at my friend’s house (where three of my amazing friends surprised me with a stunning corsage!!!) and then at school, where we climbed onto a super cool party bus that fit 29 of us! The half hour limo ride to Floral Terrace, where prom actually took place, was great, the cocktail hours was nice and the real party was incredible! I can honestly say that it was one of the best nights of my life. I danced all night, took great pictures with my friends, enjoyed delicious food and just got to reminisce about my four years in high school. Looking back at it now, I can’t even believe how quickly it all passed! Shout out to all the incredibly people who made this night possible!! Check the end of the article for details on what I wore!!
Friday, June 26: Afterprom
When prom was over, we took the party bus back to Arianna’s house and stayed for the night. We ate yummy mozzarella sticks and pizza bagels, laughed and danced… And didn’t get to sleep until the early hours of the morning!! In the afternoon, we took a ferry to Fire Island, where we spent the day lounging on the beach and going swimming (the water was freezing!!) We grabbed dinner and ice cream, and while most of the crew grabbed a late night ferry back to “the mainland,” four of us stayed overnight in a borrowed house! Back at the house, we chilled out on the back porch and ate late night mac and cheese. It may have been a long day, but it was incredibly fun and enjoyable!
Saturday, June 27: Return from Fire Island
Saturday was by far the most relaxed day of this particular weekend. The four of us who stayed over in Fire Island woke up at 8, ate mac and cheese for breakfast, cleaned the house and then took a nap. No pressure, no tight schedule. We grabbed pizza and ice cream and caught a ferry back to Long Island. That night, Torie and Emily came back to my house to finish decorating our caps for graduation the next day. Even though they were at my house until midnight, I was glad they came by to keep me company.
Sunday, June 28: Graduation!!
Sunday was THE day… the end of four incredible years of high school, the end of the memories. But it was also the beginning of a new stage in my life, a stage that I am so excited for! It was such a bittersweet day, complete with caps, gowns, selfies, laughter and tears. It all went by in a flash, it was honestly so hard to believe. The only thing that ruined the day was the it was nearly impossible to hear the speeches, which I had really been looking forward to hearing, from the stage. All in all, it was incredibly fulfilling day, knowing that I successfully finished my high school career and have so many awesome opportunities and events ahead of me. I really am so proud of myself for doing as well as I did and doing the different activities that I did, and I am so grateful to everyone who got me there. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for me as I go on to college at Stony Brook University!!

Hey, everyone! If any of you know me, you know that I love maxi dresses! This super simple back to school outfit features a maxi dress in a style that is perfect for the first week of school! Hope you all enjoy!
Here’s your chance to make your favorite summer attire hallway appropriate! Throw on your fave maxi dress, whether it’s patterned or solid, tank or sleeved, and get ready to strut your stuff! Pick something that’s hemmed to about the middle of the top of your foot, that way you won’t be tripping all over it! Also, try to avoid strapless, as they are against most school dress codes and you don’t want to have a mega malfunction!
For this outfit, I would stick to a simple pair of metallic gold flat sandals. It will keep your look grounded, but will also give it a bit of shine. I prefer flats because they’re easier to walk around in, but if you prefer a heel, look for something that is relatively low. The idea is to look and feel comfortable and relaxed, so don’t pick a pair of shoes that you just can’t walk in!
For this ensemble, I would stick to a few pieces of jewelry, like a gold charm bracelet, gold stud earrings, and a gold statement ring. With those added pieces, you’ll look glam in an understated way, and you won’t look like you’re trying to hard!
If anyone has any ideas for this outfit or decides to try something like it, let me know in the comments below or send a picture to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org! Also don’t forget to follow my Tumblr, tantalizingly-tasteful.tumblr.com, and my Instagram, @tonirose08! Love you guys xx
