What To Wear: Valentines Day Outfit Inspo

What To Wear: Valentines Day Outfit Inspo

The biggest argument my husband and I have is who love's who the most.  Is that corny or what?  He swears he love me more than I love him.  But truth be told, he might be right (but don't tell him I said so - wink, wink).  What matters most is that we are both madly in love with each other.

Last month we celebrated 9 years of marriage.  Which means this is our 9th Valentines together.  You would think I'd be really excited about this day of love.  And I would, if that were the only day hubs and I expressed our undying love and affection for one another.  He says I'm spoiled, but I think we spoil each other.  Man, I love to see the look on his face when I come home with a "surprise." 

Ok enough about my marriage, you're here for the deet's on this Valentines Day look.  Can I just say that the color red (or pink) is such a typical and expected color to wear in celebration of V-day.  I lean towards other bold and bright colors.  However, these red OTK boots from Shoeland got me rethinking my stance on the color red for Valentines.  See how I styled them HERE and HERE.  

My ideal date night go-to look is a more relaxed look, while the Mr. prefers me in something sexy.  Today's look satisfies both of our desires - comfortable yet chic.  Instead of a blazer I decided to layer this DIY'd hoodie (also worn HERE) over a white shirt dress and dressed up the look with these awesomely amazing red boots for a pop of color.  

I completed the look with this faux patent leather mini crossbody from Forever 21.  The one I'm carrying isn't available online and I'm sure it's probably not at the store either, but this patent mini handbag or this quilted patent crossbody are equally as cute.  I wish I could remember where I got my sunnies, sorry!  However, you could probably find a fun pair at your local mall.   

What are your style plans for Valentines day?  Are you going out or staying in?  Let's talk in the comments.

Destroyed Denim

Hello Stylenista's,

Last month I had a birthday - Yyyyeeeaaaa!!!  Although I'm a little picky and somewhat finicky it doesn't take a lot to make me happy.  I love my husband for all the effort he puts into making my day special.  Aside from what he gets me, I don't really expect anyone else to get me anything.  However, to my surprise my two thrift buddy's (Tiffany of @mrscuteasabutton and NeShanta of @msstyleisshe) gifted me with some fabulous items.  One of my birthday gifts was this denim skirt and immediately I knew that I was going to destroy this skirt.  With little vision in mind and a giant pair of scissors I started cutting.  My husband was like you're just scissor happy; my reply was that it was going to be one of the best looking distressed skirts of all time.  After nearly loosing a finger and almost choking to death because of the bleach fumes - I  present to you............. Destroyed Denim!

Throw Back Thursday

Hi there Stylenista's

It's the weekend and I have a fun filled fashionable weekend ahead of me.  Of course I'll provide pics of my weekend next week.

Although I live, breathe and dream fashion and style, I still work a 8-5 to support my shopping addiction.  Thursday was throwback Thursday at work, so I decided to rep the 80's.  I almost forgot so I had to rush and put something together and this is what I came up with.

Outfit Details
DIY Shirt - Walmart - $4.00
Armwear - the scraps from the shirt and the pants - Free
Shoes - Asics - Gifted














  

Denim & Florals

Hey there Stylenista's

Thanks for checking out my latest post!  I really appreciate it.

It amazes me to see how unintentionally I create similar looks within the same month and not even realize it. It wasn't until I was going through my photos that I noticed that I'd created the denim & floral look twice in one month.  I guess subconsciously, I was really feeling this look. I especially like the fact that both the denim tops and floral skirts were thrifted/gifted.  

Outfit Details:

Plain denim top - Old Navy / gifted
Dark Floral skirt - New York & Co. / $1.75
Floral denim top - Old Navy / &2.00
Floral bottom (it's really a dress styled as a skirt) - You're A Hanger Boutique / $5.00

Total combined: Less than $10
















Refashionista... Scarf/Vest/Dress

Hi there Stylenista's...

I thrifted this scarf from Park Ave Thrift right at the beginning of the summer and wasn't quite sure what to do with it.  After watching a video on Facebook, I was inspired.  Although this DIY style is not an original, I wanted to show the different ways that I was able to style this one-piece garment.

Check out how I styled this over-sized scarf or wrap....
