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!
Valentine’s Day is upon us + that means plenty of hearts, love, flowers + of course…chocolate! My boo + I celebrated Valentine’s Day early in Florida to avoid busy crowds + fixed menus at restaurants (I highlight recommend that if you want a romantic night without crowds + hiked up prices etc). One thing I am currently loving is this outfit I put together to shoot in front of the famous Culver City Love Wall – one of my favorite mural walls in LA!
I don’t think there is anything for ‘Valentine’s Day‘ than red + hearts so I think I got my fill with this look.
I hope ya’ll are having a great week so far! We are in full on Holiday mode over here but that isn’t stopping me from sharing a ‘Back To School‘ inspired look as my BF likes to call it :p I am a huge fan of the varsity sweater trend so when I received this Ralph Lauren sweater in the mail from Gwynnie Bee, I knew I was going to give off all those school girl vibes!
I am LOVING this sweater for fall into winter. Not only is it super on trend right now, it is also really cozy + is great to dress up like I did here with a skater skirt + heels or you can dress it down with sneakers or boots + a great pair of jeans…styling options are endless!
I never considered myself much of a ‘prepster‘ but with this look…I just might 😉
This sweater is another reason why I love Gwynnie Bee. I never would have discovered this beauty if it weren’t for the awesome Gwynnie Bee service. Simply sign up + you can rent clothes on a monthly basis – discover new brands, trends + more for a fraction of the price!
Girly moments are my favorite moments…nothing makes me smile more than a great pair of heels (especially ones like these that are a perfect ‘Pop Of Color‘) + a chic bag.
I think every gal should invest in a few pairs of bold heels. They instantly dress up any look + are a great way to incorporate color into your wardrobe if you tend to stick to neutrals all the time.
Lady in R E D…nothing makes a statement quite like some red pieces and with the holiday season in full swing, all red everything…is pretty much the norm 😉 While I should have paired this colorful ensemble with the infamous Starbucks red cup, I opted to just work in fun prints and ‘Pops Of Color‘…why not bring tons of color to the office! In NYC this look may not fly as well in the middle of December, but in LA…anything is possible…#IsThisHeaven?
Anyways, I have started a new morning routine when picking out what to wear to work…pick one item and builded around it. The one item I based this look on? This printed cropped jacket (perfect for any season or occasion).I decided to go with solid pieces to complimentthe jacket since the jacket does make such a bold statement. Every girl should have a basic white crop top like this one from Go Jane in their wardrobe rotation…along with a bright, fun skirt like this red a-line skirt (similar style).
I clearly couldn’t get enough color or red here haha So this Vera Bradley satchel did just the trick…PLUS it makes a great gift for the holidays! (Gift for you or a gift for someone else…either way #MustHave)
