There are sneakers that I’d like to add to my wardrobe that would not only get a lot of use, but are not too crazy in the price range. Be sire to click the links highlighted to purchase.

Valentine’s Day Lookbook | Day to Night

Valentine’s Day is a few days away and you could be planning for a huge date, a night out with your friends, or relaxing at home. Whatever your plans, these outfits are great for someone planning last minute. No, you do not need to go out and buy an outfit when I’m pretty sure you have plenty of options in your closet.

These looks are simple to create and even if you planned on shopping for these items, they can be worn more than once. I love outfits that while they may have been purchased for a particular occasion, you can mix and match them year round. The looks below show how you can transform a day outfit to a night outfit in a matter of minutes.

UntitledLook 1 (Day) is the most casual out of the four and is great if you are running errands, hanging out with friends, or going on a casual date with that special someone. My favorite part of this look is definitely the shoes. I’m in love with the fringe VANS and while they are trendy there’s so many outfits you can create with them. As far as further layering I’d pair a bomber jacket to keep it super casual. Links to items are below:

Look 1 (Night) is the quickest and easiest way to dress up an outfit. Throw on a pair of pumps, and a different coat. I went with black pumps and a black long coat for this look. Also for the bag, use a black clutch. Lastly for a layered affect, add a sweater on top of the denim. I really love the look a sweater layered with any type of collared shirt. Super simple to turn the day time outfit in to a night outfit in a matter of minutes.

As for jewelry with both of these looks, for the day one that is more casual you could do a statement necklace if you choose or you can just go with rings. For the night option a nice watch would do. Links to items featured are below:

Look 2 (Day) is more dressed up, but it’s great for brunch with friends that can later lead to a date night. I went for a calf length body con dress with a slit on the side. I love the style of these dresses and they’re ultra sexy being at the calf length opposed to shorter. If you’re in a warmer climate you could easily pair this dress with a pair of converse or Nikes and call it a day, but if you’re in the colder climate I’d go for knee high boots day and night. For the day, simply put on a pair of black knee high boots and tie a flannel around your waist. Cute, yet casual. I loved how Ayesha Curry styled this look.

Look 2 (Night) is when you have to take this dress and up the ante. Regardless how cold it is, I love the strappy heels for this dress. You can pair it with the same black coat from Look 1 and the clutch. Having an all black look makes it easier for your makeup or if you’re just into a bold lip. This look has two options of shoes and the others are thigh high boots. Links to items featured are below:

Turning an outfit from day to night does not take much time. You’re really keeping the outfit the same, just layering here and there. A lot of these pieces can be worn more than once and do not have to be limited to just a Valentine’s Day purchase. Keep it simple and if you do plan on buying an outfit, buy something that’s interchangeable and will go a long ways in your wardrobe.

I don’t wear makeup often, but I love a bold lip. Below are a few of my favs that you can find just about anywhere. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Fashion Lookbook | The Jumpsuit

I absolutely love jumpsuits. I love how they can be casual or dressy. You can pair them with heels, sneakers, Uggs. The possibilities are really endless. The great thing about jumpsuits are that you don’t have to figure out the top or the bottom. It’s one piece that you can accessorize to your liking. I’ve created four looks that would be great, whether you’re going shopping with friends or going to parties.

jumpsuit

The first look is one that can go from the office to a night out on the town. I love the periwinkle color and with a  nude heel you can’t go wrong. You could add a blazer or even a faux fur jacket with this. For the night out a clear bag would be super cute or even a simple nude clutch. For the office a nice long coat with a tote bag would be great. You could even pair this with flats; pointed toe preferably. Links to recreate the look below:

Look #2 is definitely for a night out with your girls or for a date night. The romper is super simple yet adding the thigh high boot makes it work for the winter as well. If you’re wearing it in the winter, I highly suggest a longer coat. For date night or girls night you could add a leather jacket with a chunky scarf. The boots are the real main attraction of this look. Click the links to recreate the look below:

On to look #3, this look is great for the moms out there, the college girl on-the-go, or if you’re just going out to run errands. The denim romper is not only on trend, but you could even go further and pair a denim jacket along with it. A leather jacket would go with this as well. This is another look that you could dress up with a  pair of heels, but the converse really amp up the casual look. The neon yellow bag could be a splurge, but you could pair any tote you want. Whether it’s a baby bag, school bag, or a cross body bag, it’ll work with the look. Links to recreate it below:

The last look is a look I’d wear casually or even dress it up. I really, really, really love the shoes. I know these mimic the Timberland style, but what I love more about these is the chunky heel. The chunky heel is really my fav and with the ripped jumpsuit it works. A cargo type jacket would go great with this or you could always pair the wardrobe staple, the faux leather jacket. I’d personally layer this with the cargo jacket, a chunky scarf and the book bag type purse would work great. Links to recreate the look are below:

Fashion Forward Friday [V.6] — V-Day Outfits (Day & Night)

Although I’m pretty much snowed in thanks to Winter Storm Paxis, I still wanted wanted to post some Valentine’s Day outfit ideas that I had for day and night along with my lippie picks.

First up is my day outfit. I went for red jeans (Forever 21) and a striped shirt (H&M) to keep it simple. If I were going to work I would wear this. The pants are stretchy enough for me to move around in and the shirt tones down the pants. The shoes I would pair this with for work would be a pair of black booties, but If I were going out after work with friends I would toss on my leopard flats (Target) and at work I would wear a pair of booties. My jewelry I paired with the look is from H&M (CLEARANCE!)

Next up is my date-night outfit. There’s many shoes that I could pair with the look I created, but I loved how my wedges looked with them. I took a simple red dress, paired it with a faux leather jacket and my booties with silver accents from Target. I’d also wear a pair of black tights with this look, throw on a pair of hoops, and a bold lip. As for accessories I wouldn’t go further than the earrings because the jacket is a statement in itself.

The handbag that I would pair with both looks is my Aldo bag that I purchased 2 years ago. I can’t afford a Chanel so this quilted purse is a great inspired design. It can be worn cross-body, on the shoulder, or the straps can be tucked in to make it a clutch. This was also a great deal for only $35.
