Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away and whether you are looking for the best gift for your boo, planning a night out with your friends or simply taking time for a little self love, V Day is all about love!
Love to me is being happy with who you are, what you are, who you are with + what you are doing…that’s why I do what I love + surround myself with those who have love in their hearts as well.
One of the things I love is dressing up, shooting new content + writing this blog. I’ve been running MissyOnMadison for over 7 years but every time I shoot + write I feel blessed to be doing what I love with who I love, my boyfriend! The ultimate love in my mind is love that is selfless + giving, that is the love my boyfriend has for me.
What I love is that my boyfriend loves me so much that he supports the things in life that I love. When I started MissyOnMadison I was doing it solo or had help here + there from family but the love + support I receive from my boyfriend is what makes me truly LOVE what I do because I have someone who enjoys helping me achieve my goals + make my dreams come true.
Because I am bursting with love hehe I felt it was only right to share this fun Valentine’s Day look. You can never go wrong with a red satin coat, skirt + white blouse like I am wearing here.
My shoes + bag are also perfect for Valentine’s Day. You can never go wrong with red pumps + a classic red Gucci Bag. I love wearing red accessories year round for an extra POP!
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:
Well…almost that is hehe Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching + whether you will be celebrating with your boo, hanging with friends or simply giving yourself some much needed self love, a great way to get in a romantic state-of-mind is with a new look featuring the signature colors of Valentine’s Day…RED + PINK ♥
While I love all of the flowers + chocolate, I definitely don’t love the crowds at all the restaurants and bars on Valentine’s Day, so this year Mike + I are celebrating Valentine’s Day early while we are on vacation in Florida BUT I will for sure be treating myself to some of the pieces below to wear for the romantic evening. Even if you don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day, one of the funnest things to do is plan a girls night with your crew – anyone heading to happy hour followed by the new Fifty Shades? I kinda am excited to do that as well haha :p
Happy Thursday Babes! I have been super busy lately between getting everything ready for my upcoming trip to London + working on an exciting top secret project (don’t worry, I will reveal it soon hehe) my blog time has been slacking but I am getting back at it! I can’t believe summer is coming to a close – living in LA it makes it hard to realize a transition in seasons sometimes since the weather doesn’t change like good ‘ole NYC…what can I say, sometimes I miss the big apple! Luckily, today’s post reminds me a little of NYC because I am rocking a chic printed wrap dress from Leota New York! For some reason a classic wrap dress + pointed toe pumps is so ‘New York‘ to me. Maybe it reminds me of my corporate office days + being in the epicenter of the fashion world but I personally will always love playing dress up no matter what the occasion.
This Leota New York dress is beyond comfy + it is beyond flattering on various body types. It is fun, flirty yet professional + chic. Whether you are heading to the boardroom or a nice dinner, this dress paired with the perfect bag + heels is a total ‘must-have‘!
What I love about wrap dresses is how flattering they are. I have been up and down with my weight lately so the fact that it is tight on top and flows out makes it the perfect dress to ‘hide’ anything you may not want to accentuate 😉
The red in the dress was picked up with my red satchel from Miss Locker Bags (it retails for under $100 on Amazon). This bag I wore all over NYC as it has just the right amount of room to fit all of my essentials from my keys, to lipstick, to sunnies + more.
Classic white pumps are always a no brainer. I mean what is more chic than this?
I can’t believe it is 4th Of July weekend already! I am happily writing this post by the pool at my apartment building since I have the day off today (so thrilling!) and this is actually a little bit of a flashback to LI while also sharing some July 4th style! I realized as I was editing these photos that A) These were shot in March (guess I was feeling patriotic vibes early haha) + B) All of these photos had what appears to be a blue filter over them…I am thinking my brother was having some mechanical difficulties with the camera that day but nonetheless they came out pretty sweet!
