I cannot believe that it feels like spring is around the corner, and we are already heading into Valentine’s Day. I love this holiday for the simple fact that I remind myself how fun it is to play dress up for date night. From casual and simple, to a more polished look, whatever you are doing for the holiday, make sure you wear something that makes you feel fun, frisky, and sexy!
We all know I am a jeans and a tee girl, so why not make your date night look a little more playful with a fun Free People lace bodysuit under. It adds a bit of sexiness and edge.
I love some white boots and these from Schutz will carry over all summer. They add just enough fun to the look, and round it out with a playful fanny pack, like this Herschel Supply belt bag at Nordstrom .
For a sexier look, make sure that you get your leather on! This off the shoulder moto jacket from B.B Dakota is super sexy and different. I paired them with my favorite Good American denim that had a velvet side panel that makes your legs look super long.
We all know I love my kicks, and if you are on the wild side, pair them with some Jordan’s. If not, a great heel is just as killer!
How is it that January is already over? This month is always full of events from NYFW, the Super Bowl, and of course NBA All-Star. That being said, I literally walked into a few stores and out of nowhere I remembered that one of the biggest holidays, Valentine’s day, was here. This year, I will be in the mix of fashion week and NBA All-Star, so I kinda have breezed over the event. That being said, I have picked up a conversation heart or two and some fun clothing pieces that you can wear anytime of the year!
I have become such a hat girl in the last few months, and a newsboy style is really on trend. You will find them all over for Spring from H&M to Nordstrom. I have a great black one as well. Also, this cute Love is the Answer tee from Amuse Society is just darling. I love a good statement tee, and this is so cute for the beach with some denim shorts.
It is time to bring back that light denim. I still am obsessed with high-waisted pairs, and they are totally still on trend. These from J.Crew are so soft and comfy, they feel like second skin. I am wearing them now with a crop sweater, but will rock them in the Spring with all of my bodysuits.
Bandanas are back! If you haven’t rocked one yet, it is time to try. They are all over and this one is so cute with the lips on it. I wear them in my hair, tied on my wrist for some funk, and of course around my neck. Jazz it up with a cool dress, or play it down like I did here with a tee. Forever 21 has them for under 10 dollars! Also, the hoop is back, and the bigger and bolder the better. So add them to a look like this to really make a statement.
I love a shoe that is a playful. This oxfords from Shelly’s London at Nordstrom Rack are on major sale. They feel like an updated sneaker, and this baby pink screams Valentine’s Day. This silhouette is major for Spring, and you can find them in lots of fun colors. I will wear these with most of my long dresses, as well as a simple jean. The black laces make them even more funky!

A clothing line that shares a name with one of my favorite French terms just makes me happy. When I first came across this line about a season ago, I knew I was going to continue to be drawn to it. Cinq à Sept is easy and sophisticated, as it is playful with an allure of confidence. The collection’s modern feminine aesthetic embraces unexpected detail and shape, resulting in pieces that draw their romance and sexiness from the woman wearing them. I knew from the moment that I saw this silk bomber, it was perfect not only for NYFW, but Valentine’s Day as well.
This dress just nailed it. I am not a huge fan of ruffles when they are overwhelming, but the gorgeous detail in this silk dress was spot on. Again, it mixes sexiness and a bit of edge with that romance we all want. Paired with the bomber, the whole outfit was perfection. For date night, I will certainly be putting on a heel, but for NYFW it was perfect with my favorite Nike sneakers.
Cinq à Sept founder Jane Siskin, trusts that her customers are ready for a gutsier approach then some of the other contemporary labels. Her m.o. is to dress them for “special moments,” not everyday drudgery—so why play it safe? With old-world interiors and the ’40s, the shoe opened with a chocolate and turquoise velvet damask coat with fur cuffs. It may not be for everyone, but the girls who love it will really love it.
All things being said, yes we are still a month out from Valentine’s Day, but when I saw this French color sweatshirt from J.Crew my heart began to flutter. It seems that as soon as January hits, retail stores begin to prepare us for this day, whether it be floods of red dresses or conversation hearts at every market.
Thanks to J.Crew, they have a ton of great Valentine’s Day ideas for every type of occasion. Shop it all here, as this little tee is also on my favorites list.
I am not a huge red and pink girl, so finding this fun and cute sweatshirt made my day. Not only will I wear it all through the Spring, but mixing it up with denim on denim and adding my Air Force sneakers made if feel more sporty. The silhouette of this jacket is beyond. It feels unique and fresh. Simply paired with dark denim it automatically becomes cool.
I love to add a pop of color in a purse. This bag ,from J.Crew as well, is the perfect size for a day of sightseeing in NYC. I hit the high line in the Meat Packing District in this whole look, it’s located next to The Chelsea Market, one of my favorite places to shop for wine and sweet treats.
Of course, nothing makes shopping easier then being in a comfortable pair of sneakers, so my limited edition Nike Air Force 1 NYC editions from Kith are perfect. Not to mention the little heart and pop of red also are fun for Valentine’s Day.
Ban.do is all about having fun in life. This lifestyle brand based in sunny Los Angeles, California specializes in gifts and accessories. Their motto is simple, they want to cheer you on and make you laugh, just as your best friends would.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, I always dedicate a fun day with my girlfriends where we exchange silly little gifts reminding each other how much fun we always have. It will be hard for me to choose, but I definitely will be sporting the girl gang sweatshirt and giving a fun gift from this cute line.
