RED AND PINK PICKS

**To shop, simply click directly on the items in the photo or on the icons below. 

If I could choose a favorite holiday based on colors alone, Valentine’s Day would undoubtedly top my list. Pink and red hues have always been go-to colors for me and I love the bold look of them paired together. In case cupid has inspired you to invest in a few pink and red pieces, I’ve rounded up a few must-haves just in time for February 14th.

PS – you might want to know, the gorgeous blush pink coat is currently on sale for 50% off and the red bow skirt is on sale for just $26!

Happy shopping, lovelies!

Happy Tuesday! I promised to get this post up yesterday, but better late than never. Today I’m sharing a look that’s both cozy and colorful, thanks to this amazing hot pink cape from All for Color. To style it, I started with this striped long sleeve t-shirt that’s currently under $11 and paired the combo with my coziest, dark wash skinnies (similar here for 40% off!).  I wanted to add a few more pops of color, so I accessorized with this neon Kendra Scott tassel necklace, some bright blue reflective Ray bans (found a pair under $100!) and my turquoise face Michael Kors watch (currently on sale!) To finish the look, I went with grey suede heeled boots (similar on sale!) and my go-to reversible leather tote that I carry like every other day. On this particularly cold day, I warmed up with my fun ban.do coffee tumbler.

This is a fun and casual weekend look that’s perfect for the cold weather.

Is it just me or do all of the holidays seem to run together? I feel like there’s barely time to breathe between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, NYE and the Valentine’s Day. All that’s to say, it’s hard to believe I’m already thinking about February 14th, but since it is just a few weeks away, I have rounded up some fun gift and style ideas that feature the icon of the season, hearts.

Whether you want to send this to your man so he can get you a V-day gift you’ll actually use or wear or you want to shop the items for yourself or a friend, these are all perfect picks for Valentine’s Day. Stay tuned for more Valentine’s gift and style round ups. Happy weekend!

PLEATED ROSE MAXI SKIRT

SKIRT: She Inside – just $24!  //  TOP: Nordstrom  //  NECKLACE: Bauble Bar  //  WATCH: Fossil  //  BOOTIES: similar Steve Madden  //  BAG: similar Kate Spade  //  SUNNIES: Karen Walker  //  PAVE CROSS RING: Wanderlust & Co

I realize I’m a little late on the news, but I recently discovered the hues that PANTONE announced the 2016 Color(s) of the Year (they did 2 this year – how cool!) and they just so happen to be my two favorite colors ever! Just when I’m looking for another excuse to add more blush pink (aka rose quartz) and Cinderella blue (or serenity in PANTONE language) to my wardrobe, this exciting announcement comes in, which is why I’m sharing this rosy outfit with you all today.

I found this gorgeous pleated maxi skirt for just $24 and I had to have it. It can easily be dressed up, but I went for a more casual, everyday look by adding this oh-so-cozy thermal peplum shirt to top off the loose, casual feel. I went all-in with the blush-toned hues, accessorizing with this gorgy clustered jewel statement necklace from Bauble Bar and this pretty rose gold Fossil watch I found at Macy’s. For another pastel pink pop, I carried my go-to Kate Spade bag (similar here). I finished the look with my grey suede booties and my tortoise shell Karen Walker sunnies.

METALLIC LEOPARD SKIRT

SKIRT: Nordstrom  //  SWEATER: Nordstrom  //  CLUTCH: similar Nordstrom (just $26!)  //  HEELS: similar Nordstrom (50% off!)  //  NECKLACE: Prima Donna //  SUNNIES: Prada  //  WATCH: Tory Burch

I love layering unexpected textures, and the easiest time to do it is during the winter, when  knits, metallics, furs and materials of all kinds are at an abundance. This look mixes an array of fun textures for a fun winter date look.

To start, I found this metallic leopard mini skirt and was immediately drawn to the pattern (I’m a sucker for animal print). As a juxtaposition to the shimmer of the skirt, I added what has quickly become my favorite white knit sweater (obsessed with the fringe detail!) I finished it off with some classic black pumps (found a similar pair on sale for $30!), added a color pop with this turquoise statement necklace and completed the texture mix-up with a faux fur clutch.
