Vday Date Night | Bell-Sleeves Top + Double Side Split Maxi Skirt

Happy Thursday everyone! I’m currently heading up to NYC for a quick day trip before coming back down to DC again. I have an appointment the next night that I didn’t want to miss then it’s back up to NJ/NYC and Philly. I’m splitting my time between my family and NYFW so there will be a few shows that I will be attending this weekend.

As you know, Valentine’s Day is Sunday and if you are planning a date night with your SO or a girl’s night out, then I’d suggest this little outfit below. I love the romantic cut of the top with its off-shoulder and bell sleeves. Paired with a double side split maxi skirt just elevated this outfit from sexy to va-va-voom. Not to mention the flowy and flirtiness of the outfit as you walk makes this outfit fun to wear for the night.

VDAY Casual | Blush Rose Sweater + Pleather Skirt

Happy Tuesday everyone! Another light snow day but luckily nothing’s sticking. I can’t say the same for when we had the blizzard few weeks ago while shooting my Valentine lookbook. Here’s a preview of one look below and I should have another coming up again this Thursday just in time for VDAY weekend. Once live, I’ll be sure to announce it in my next post.

I absolutely love this blush rose sweater and have been wearing it nonstop. I mean it’s plush and pink–what’s not to love. You may have seen another outfit during my NYC trip which was much more casual. I wanted to pair the sweater again with different textures and in monotone color for a Valentine casual outfit.

Winter Basics | Black on Black on Black

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! I’m so counting down to the weekend and felt it was really long especially when we had plenty of snow days last week. But even a blizzard will not stop me from going out and grabbing some outfit photos for a fall to winter lookbook video–feel free to check it out if you haven’t yet!

For this winter outfit, I wanted to go back to basics and dressed from head to toe in black. In order to make it work, each item had a different texture that made it stand apart. From the faux fur vest to the stripe on the maxi skirt to the quilted pattern on the bag–all gave the outfit its uniqueness. I wanted to show the versatility of dressing in one color which I have done in the past hereand here.

Winter Mix | Plaid on Plaid Mixed Prints

Hello everyone! I hope my East Coast friends are keeping warm from blizzard Jonas. I stayed in the entire time Friday evening through Saturday evening and had to grudgingly get out to shovel my car out. Not what I had in mind to spend my weekend, that’s for sure. At least, we had a day off Monday.

As for my outfit below, I got the coat over Christmas break which is still on sale now. I love the pattern and colors and the pleather trimming giving this coat its unique look. However, the two alterations I would add to the coat would be to add buttons and have the sleeves shortened.
