Sweet Date Outfits

Valentine’s day is just five short days away already, how did that happen? I think I have been saying that for just about every holiday so far. It has been a whirlwind of a year. The BF and I are going quite fancy this V-day, and I’m pretty excited! We are seeing Chris Thile –> ( http://tinyurl.com/kqgs4xe  ) play at a symphony hall and then most likely going to find a swanky place to get some drinks. Luckily for us the concert is Tuesday the 18th, so we won’t be fighting with the a) Friday crowd or the b) crazed Valentine’s day crowd on the 14th.  Here are some sweet little Valentine’s day outfits floating around my Pinterest boards that I think would work no matter what your plans.

If you’re making it a girls night out, I think a chunky sweater (I mean, it is still February) and heeled booties is the way to go.

If you’re meeting up with a new potential Valentine at a casual bar a moto jacket, sweet dress, & tights to keep your legs from freezing over is a nice option. Flat booties are great for exploring around town and showing off your fave spots together.

If you’re meeting a new potential Valentine at a bit more upscale location I love this minimal look. It’s sleek and sexy, but could still work for many different venues if you’re in for a surprise date.

This look particularly inspired me for the event I’m going to with my boyfriend. I want to be a tad more dressed up than a typical concert outfit because it is going to be at a symphony hall.. but the leather jacket & messy topknot don’t make it look too fussy.

Hope you all have a chocolate filled day accompanied by cheesy love notes and mysterious flower bouquets from secret admirers. 😉

Holidaze

I am really not meaning to sound like a Grinch here, but this holiday season has been a little more frustrating than most. I did myself a favor by picking up some gifts here and there early on so I don’t have to scramble at the last minute, but I still have a few important pieces to get along the way. The major source of stress is from work, naturally, and not finding the time to actually go out and get said gifts or being able to enjoy all the special holiday activities… and when I do have time I somehow find myself on the couch with hot cocoa and Netflix… whoooops. With all that being said I am still hopeful I’ll get a few days squeezed into December to do all the sparkly, cozy, festive, fun-filled Holiday traditions!

Here is the way I styled the plaid jacket I found at Target I had mentioned in the previous post.

Don’t ask me why I hardly ever have shoes on in these posts. I do not have an answer for you, other than by the time I walk out the door I can assure you I have found a pair.

Better Weurk

Sweet little work outfit from the other day. I thought long and hard about tucking the shirt into the skirt, but then realized about how many times throughout the day I’d be consumed with tucking and re-tucking (perhaps I was just feeling a little tired..lazy), so I figured I’d try something new and adventurous by leaving it out!

On an unrelated note, I can’t decide on this jacket or not. Si o no?

I do like it and all, but a part of me is holding out for the perfect cream or blush colored faux leather jacket so I can’t quite commit.

Thoughts?
