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!
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:
This week has been gloomy in LA, causing me to stay cuddled up in doors and in my comfy clothes while packing up my entire apartment to move this weekend. Moving is beyond stressful, why?Because now I have begun actually sifting through my closet and separating pieces I want to bring, pieces I am going to list on Poshmark (follow my closet + sign up with code ‘MISSYONMADISON‘ for a $5 credit towards your first purchase), + pieces I am going to donate…kinda reminds me of the Sex and The City movie where Carrie is giving up her apartment to move in with Big and her and the girls dance around to Aerosmith while making their Take or Toss piles haha. Basically was me today, minus the girls BUT I am going from my own place to a new place with my boo so I feel Carrie’s struggle with attempting to downsize her wardrobe although I now have my own office with TWO walk in closets :p Every bloggers DREAM ♥
Anyways…after we are all moved in to our new place, I am looking forward to a much needed date night + with LA’s gloomy weather to kick off spring, I wanted to share one of my signature go-to looks for a night out! Whether you are heading to happy hour with friends, dinner with your boo or a late night movie, I LIVE for these Hue Leatherette Leggings because they suck you in, accentuate your curves + match with any top for any occasion.
I seriously LOVE these leggings, I have been posting about them for years (#notsponsored lol) + I never get sick of them, not to mention the quality makes them durable to last for years of wear. I have been wanting to try the whole patent liquid pants trend from this past season, but I always go back to my trustee Hue ones (what can I say, I am a creature of habit hehe :p)
For a night out I pair them with a sheer top like this one + I wear a bralette or bandeau under it to avoid showing too much skin (definitely not risque enough to do the whole ‘free the nipple‘ trend haha). It’s a great way to dress sexy but also look classy and put together if it’s a dinner date etc.
I always wanted a pair of rockstud pumps however I still can’t get myself to splurge on expensive shoes (just bags haha) so these are a look a like version and I found a similar version from Sole Society here.
Valentine’s Day is just a day away and that means finding that last minute outfit! Luckily I rounded up a few of my go-to little red dresses for the special night all available in store + online (with an in store pickup option). I for one am super excited for V-Day since this past weekend was my anniversary + I spent it sick as a dog in bed sooo I am looking forward to a romantic date night with my boo. After an amazing week at Universal + Disney, I ended the trip on a real high note with a lovely ear infection + horrible cold…yea talk about fun :p I guess life couldn’t be all fun + games huh? haha Anyways…to distract myself from this terrible cold, I am dreaming of the perfect date night look.
ICYMI – I rounded up some of my favorite looks for the day of love a little earlier in the month here. I think I am going to go for a little red dress like this one just to stay festive for the occasion hehe :p
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day in LA without taking photos in front of the ‘Love Wall‘ in Culver City…There was a legit line to take photos in front of this wall (and we shot this towards the end of January) haha but hey in such an insta-friendly town what do you expect 😉
I paired this red fit & flare with black ankle strap heeled sandals + my favorite Gucci mini bag which is perfect for date night. It has enough room for all of your essentials + is easy to wear for dinner + even dancing afterwards (if you are into that sort of thing)…my babe + I aren’t big dancers haha so we will just stick with the dinner 😉
Funny enough I will be celebrating Valentine’s Day not on V-Day. While I love the occasion, when you go out on V Day I find menus to be changed, restaurants to be crowded + overall less romantic. So my honey + I are opting for celebrating Valentine’s Day over the weekend instead so we can actually order what we like off the menu AND can avoid crowds! Now that sounds like the perfect plan to me 😉
