Valen-week Part 2: OUTFITS (yay!)


Debating over what to wear? I have put together two outfits on very opposite sides of the spectrum in terms of potential outfits to accommodate your Valentine's plans (or lack there of). The first is a more casual look, ideal for a movie night with your beaux (or your best friends). This look is cute and comfortable--not trying to hard but still stylish.

The second is a classic hot-date look. Whip out that LBD if your guy is taking you somewhere nice, or if you just feel like looking fab (leather optional). Tone down the drama with a neutral bag or clutch, and gold accessories. (LOVE that spike necklace!) Call me cliche but you can absolutely NEVER go wrong with a black dress and a red lip. Choose a red with a blue-ish undertone to make your teeth appear whiter.

Thats all for now beauties! Hope you all feel loved today!

Happy Valen-week!

I am a fan of holidays. I thoroughly enjoy celebrations of any sort, sparkly (or not) decorations, both giving and receiving thoughtful gifts, spending time with loved ones, and experiencing the specific joy that comes with special occasions. This being said, Valentine's day is one of the big ones for me--one  day a year that is dedicated to celebrating LOVE! I think it is so important that we make the people we love know that we love them, and especially on valentines day, to express it in a way that makes them feel special and very very important (and happy!).
