Whether you are heading out for a romantic dinner with your boo, a fun night on the town or a little galentine’s get together, one thing is always essential – the perfect look! I have always loved dressing up for Valentine’s Day, whether I was single or now being in a relationship – I love the decorative + feminine elements of Valentine’s Day…the hearts, the pink, the red, the roses etc!
From the perfect dress to a chic skirt or heart shaped bag (can’t get more Valentine’s Day than that :p), I rounded up my favorite styles perfect for Valentine’s Day so you can look like the perfect rose ♥
Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away and while my full Valentine’s Day Style Guide will be up soon, I am sharing a great casual alternative here. Maybe you are heading to a girl’s night in or a casual Valentine’s Day date or just want to embrace some pink + red to wear to the office, either way – I made the pom pom cardigan trend work for the day of love.
I have been loving the pom pom cardigan trend for casual days that I basically want to snuggle up in bed + in turn treat the pom pom cardigan like my warm cozy blanket haha I bought it in pink + also a baby blue and they have become my instant go to + I have gotten a ton of compliments on them! My boyfriend is not a fan but hey sometimes trends are for the gals + not the guys, am I right? 😉
I am also a huge fan of these chiffon camisoles – I layer them under everything + own them in every color. They are a great staple to have + wear year round so I highly encourage every gal to stock up on them!
I am obsessed with these pink Manolo Blahnik slingbacks! They are my first ever pair of Manolo’s (crazy I know but I tend to splurge on handbags not shoes) + I bought these as a Christmas gift to myself on Cyber Monday for under $300 – crazy right?! I am slowly beginning to invest in designer shoes but still can’t get myself to pay full price especially when you can buy the styles you love for less from various retailers + outlets.
My bag was another Christmas gift to myself and I scored it at my local Gucci outlet in Palm Desert (one of my favorite places to shop since they have all the designers you love for discounted prices + the styles are still pretty current)!
I am gearing up for a festive NYE complete with club bed + DJ pillow :p hehe What can I say, my boo + I aren’t big party people so we will be enjoying watching the ball drop in our pjs following a romantic dinner. Even though we are just heading to dinner, I love to get dressed up + make a splash (or should I say…sparkle hehe) so I will be rocking this look for New Year’s Eve.
I have been wanting a sequin blazerFOREVER + when I got this beauty I fell in love. My BF looked at me like I was crazy but I assured him with the right outfit…it will work 😉
I had to let the blazer do the talking so I paired it with my trustee lace trim camisole (a perfect layering piece for every gal’s wardrobe) + faux leather leggings. These leggings are my absolute FAVORITE. I wear them for date night, girl’s night + all the time basically – they are flattering on pretty much every body type + can be dressed up or down for any occasion.
For some added ‘bling‘ factor I pulled the whole look together with my fav Gucci Pearl Belt (another must-have if you ask me :p).
I am getting ready to pop some champagne, dance on some tables + SPARKLE ✨ OK…maybe not dance on tables hehe…we will be having a quiet night at home but I am for sure ready to sparkle + what better way to do that than with a chic sequin skirt!
I have been wanting to pull off a sequin skirt for years + figured NYE is the perfect time to go for it! The key with a sparkly sequin number like this one is to let it take center stage + not overdo it with the other accessories.
I paired this skirt with a simple black chiffon camisole (to not overdo it with the sparkle) + a fuzzy jacket since whether you are in LA, NY, Vegas, Miami or anywhere else, NYE tends to get chilly + I am always cold so this jacket is style while also cozy.
I went simple with my heels + bag. You can never go wrong with black pumps + a classic Chanel!
I feel every gal should invest in a classic Chanel flap bag (they retain value if you ever want to sell it) + they match with everything. I feel the same way about black pointed toe pumps. I have never put on an outfit that black pointed toe pumps couldn’t match perfectly with.
Whether you are trying to find the perfect dress for NYE or even one for a girl’s night or winter date night, I am all about the gold vibes this season. I love when a holiday dress can be transitioned to year round wear, so this off the shoulder gold one is perfect. While it is festive enough for the holiday season, I will for sure be wearing this for my next date night + maybe even Valentine’s Day :p I am all about re-wearing pieces you can style over + over again.
I love this chiffon like material (although I am not one for ironing or steaming haha :p) but it is so feminine + flowy, making it one of my go-to’s. Style it with boots, style it with heels, style it with flats…it is always a must-have for every gal’s closet.
I linked to some similar styles below that are sure to stun this NYE.
As for heels, I went with my go-to nude patent leather pumps. These are ones I believe every gal should have in her shoe closet. They are perfect for work, play or just about any occasion. I say it’s worth investing ins a high end pair that will last a while since you will get a ton of use out of them.
My clutch is an oldie but a goodie. If you are looking to get a Louis Vuitton bag but at an affordable price, this clutch is perfect…it is the Toiletry Pouch 26 and retails for under $500.
