It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a hot red number + when I spotted this red trench coat that in my mind doubles as a sexy dress, I was in L O V E♥ I always found trench coats sophisticated + a bit sexy…you know, like what’s on (or not on :p) underneath hehe 😉 Whether you are surprising your boo at home with a romantic meal or you are heading to a nice night out on the town, a red trench coat makes a total statement + is the perfect piece to wear thisValentine’s Day.
I am obsessed with this coat. I wore it a lot around Christmas time + then when I slipped it over a cami dress for Valentine’s Day, I realized when closed and belted it looks like a little red dress itself! Watchya think?
I went a bit overboard on the whole hearts thing – well maybe not :p
This bag was an instant must have when I spotted it on Amazon + it retails for under $30 – how cute is that?! It actually has plenty of room it you are wearing it for a night out – fits your keys, lipstick, other essentials etc. Not only is it perfect for Valentine’s Day, but it is a great bag to wear anytime to make a bold statement.
I kept my shoes simple since there was a lot going on with this outfit + I find that these Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals match with absolutely everything + the best part? They are super comfortable!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner + that means planning the perfect date night or day date with your boo!

I am feeling all kinds of lovey dovey vibes leading up to Valentine’s Day! Whether it is pink + red literally everywhere or hearts, chocolates or roses…there is definitely a lot of Love In The Air.
I love wearing these colors year round, but especially leading up to Valentine’s Day so I had to share a little V Day outfit inspo with this little ensemble.
I love the color red. To me it always makes a bold statement + adds a little bit of sass to any look – Valentine’s Day or not, I highly encourage every gal to embrace a little red moment.
Pink is another one of my go to colors since I am a total girly girl hehe :p This skirt is perfect for year round wear. Pair it with a sweater + boots for the winter or a camisole + blazer for the office, either way it is a must-have for your wardrobe.
Since I love a good pop of color, this red Gucci bag was a must-have for me! I actually got it on sale at the Gucci outlet near me (yes even designer bags can be snagged brand new for less) + it has become my newest fav bag because of it’s bold color + simple design.
These bow pumps are an oldie but goodie. They are from Michael Kors + are no longer available but I found some similar styles below:
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner it’s time to stock up on the best lippies so you can ‘smooch‘ all night long! From a chic lipstick to a glossy gloss (hehe like what I did there :p), I am rounding up the best lip products for you to get your smooch on! My personal favorite? This Charlotte Tilbury lipstick (I am obsessed with the gold packaging)!
Love is in the air+ so is a little lace…I am swooning over lace tulle skirts at the moment, so when I snagged this skirt I knew it made for the perfect fairytale ‘esq‘ date night ensemble!
I love a great feminine moment + lace tulle skirts are as girly as it can get in my opinion. I find that when you wear them you should let them take center stage so I paired them with some neutral colors, making it a look perfect for date night (I know sometimes tulle skirts can be a bit intimidating for everyday wear).
An added bonus? Every time I wear a tulle skirt I instantly feel like Carrie Bradshaw ♥ Not a bad way to feel, right? 😉 hehe
I highly encourage every gal invest in a little tulle moment – getting a tulle skirt in a neutral color is easier to style for wear on a regular basis (think pairing it with a white tee, a cropped sweater or simply body suit + moto jacket etc).
