“Happy Love Day!”

It’s Valentine’s day!  Do you have any plans for today/tonight?  In need of a last-minute going out/date outfit?  I’ve got you covered.  Something easy and not the usual cliché (cherry red!) that will make you arrive in style without looking like a Valentine’s day enthusiast!

Instead of wearing a red dress, I opted for darker colors: an oversized black blazer with a little peek of my bralette showing and a silver metallic pleated skirt with black pumps. If skirts don’t tickle your fancy, you can also do a leather pant or even denim and still look effortless!  For my flirty details, I added touches of pinks and blushes throughout. Not too much, but just enough to compliment the darks and for contrast.  Accessory tip:  statement earrings can easily add glam and polish such a simple look.  I wanted a fresh-faced look so I kept my makeup soft and finished it off with a cute little topknot!

Hope you guys like my no-fuss look for Valentine’s day.  It’s sweet without looking over the top!  Have fun celebrating love day. ❤

“The new LBD”

 

 

Hi guys!  This weekend I am out celebrating my bestie’s bachelorette party along with my girlfriends in San Diego.  We planned to wear LBDs aka the “little black dress” one night and I immediately went into panic mode because believe it or not, I don’t even own an LBD! Shocker?!  Yes, I know.  The closest thing I have to an LBD is a dark navy (almost black but not quite), slinky number by Elizabeth and James.  It COULD pass for a little black dress, but I felt like I was cheating myself.  Haha!  I browsed through my closet again and my eyes immediately went straight to my black romper. Yes, a romper. Chic, fierce, and sassy –  it was the perfect thing to wear for a GNO (girls’ night out)! This romper from C/MEO Collective is playfully elegant, even down to the fabric.  My favorite part is the notched bodice; it’s flirty and sexy without looking overdone.  The peplum waist adds detail and body to the romper which gives me more of a flattering shape.  I’ve been holding on to this romper for a while and was waiting for the right occasion to wear it.  I guess you could say that it’s the romper that saved me. 🙂

The lapel on this beauty makes such a statement so I thought I’d keep it simple with bold earrings and dainty rings.  Strappy heels because no GNO outfit is complete without them and a bold, red lip for extra sass!

Little black rompers are just as essential as little black dresses for your closet. This is the perfect go to romper for any of your party needs and mine saved me from my fashion dilemma.  My little black romper is my new LBD.

Be right back guys!  Time to get back to our bachelorette party shenanigans.  Happy Friday and hope you guys have a great weekend! XO ❤
