R e d + B l a c k for Valentine’s Day? #Groundbreaking :p With V-Day being tomorrow and 1 more red look in my iPhoto library that meant it was time to share it! Nothing screams V-Day like red pumps + a red bag…especially paired with a ‘Little Black Outfit‘♥ I actually didn’t go for the LBD (crazy, I know) so instead I opted for a black floral top and an easy to mix + match black scuba skirt!Nothing makes editing photos quite as enjoyable as finding funny shots like this one haha That’s the joy of shooting with friends :p Let me break down my look — this top is a combination of Faux Leather + a Floral Print…such a fun combo! And my skirt can match with anything which is always a Win / Win!
Nothing preps you for Valentine’s Day quite like some fresh blooms paired with the perfect Date Night beauty essentials for a romantic yet flawless look ♥ I love two things when getting ready for a special occasion — fresh flowers (like these beauties from FTD Flowers) + brand new cosmetics (especially lightweight, natural picks like these from IT Cosmetics)!
FTD Flowers reached out to me asking if there was someone in my life who inspires me that I would like to send some Valentine’s Day blooms to and of course Kristi came right to mind! Not only was she the one who inspired my big dreams of moving to LA but she has really been my best friend, confidant and support system here in LA since all of my family is back in NY. Kristi is my family…hey the old saying goes ‘Friends Are The Family You Choose For Yourself‘…well yes I completely agree!
Whether you are looking to send blooms to your sweetheart, family member or maybe even your best friend, FTD Flowers has the best selection of Valentine’s Day themed bouquets that are sure to stun! I mean how precious is the heart vase these tulips came in?! GORGEOUS ♥ P.S. other than the fact that Kristi is the sweetestgal ever…she is in my mind, the Martha Stewart of LA! Haha! She always has the cutest decor, sweetest treats + is always the hostess with the mostess…hence the M&M heart above (after shooting these photos I had to create this little masterpiece :p)
Now to my favorite beauty picks for V-Day from IT Cosmetics! I have been a huge fan of their products ever since I first tried them over a year ago, so I love trying new products as they release! My current favorites are their mascaras! I LOVE the NEW Superhero Mascara (available soon). It provides thick, long, flawless lashes without any clumping! YASSS! I also am a huge fan of the Hello Lashes Extensions Mascara (#LongLusciousLashes)…I love the brush design for easy application.
S h o w some S k i n♥ Can’t believe Valentine’s Day is just days away and I actually have a Valentine this year (umm yes pretty cray cray I know :p)! Whether you are heading out for a romantic night with your boo or you are simply doing a Girl’s Night, dressing up is a V-Day must!
One of my go-to sites for stocking up on cute date night dresses + shoes is AMI ClubWear! Not only do they have every color, pattern and style you can dream of, but they are all at super low prices! (Just what a fashionista needs to switch up her date night look every weekend)!
I am OBSESSED with this red long sleeve skater dress from AMI ClubWear! It is cotton material, reallycomfy and shows just the right amount of leg😉 It comes in multiple colors and can be dressed up or down for a casual Sunday brunch or a dressy night out!
What better way to truly ‘shine‘ + ‘stand out‘ on Valentine’s Day than with some metallic shoes and accessories!! These metallic silver gladiator sandal heels are sexy, sassy + truly make a statement…plus they match with everything and can also be toned down with a pair of skinny jeans (perfect shoe for any occasion).
My silver clutch (similar to this one from GiGi NY) is also an easy go-to for any night out and is a great alternative to the typical little black clutch or cross body.
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without having yourself a little ‘L O V E‘♥ I think I have plenty :p I’ve had a thing for dainty + delicate jewels lately like this long chain circle pendant necklace + X Ring…since it’s the most romantic night of the year, this Love Ring + Love Necklace were basically required 🙂
Oh yea…Red Lipstick? Perfect for Date Night smooching 😉
Happy Monday! Let the countdown begin! Valentine’s Day is just days away and whether you plan on going out for a romantic date night or a fun girl’s night out…you may as well ‘dress to impress‘ for the occasion + what better way to do that than with some fiery red shoes or a chic handbag?!
