The Perfect Valentine’s Day Outfit

February 9, 2017


 

Welcome back!

I hope you guys got some serious Valentine’s Day inspo after checking out my Ladylike Weekly-Columbus edition last week!  I’m still keeping on with the V-day theme,  but this time I’ve partnered with Polaris Fashion Place to take you on a shopping excursion searching for that perfect date night outfit.  I’ve created not one, but TWO different looks that can be worn while out with your sweetheart or a fun night out with the gals!

1st Look

So, I wanted to create a look that could be worn all day at work but with with the help of a few additions, it could be transformed into a perfect romantic date night look! I came across this red “Kiss” neck scarf at Express and absolutely loved it.  I knew that this was going to be the main piece that I would work around when creating my outfit.  It had total V-Day vibes and oozed Parisian flair! Next, I thought about what would be the most comfortable to wear all day and night.  Bingo: Jeans!  I knew Madewell was the jean authority.  I’m a huge Madewell fan, especially of the High Riser Skinny, but this time I went with “The Roadtripper.”  They seriously feel so soft and stretchy {which is good after a large meal:-) } My go to shirt is always a white button down: timeless & versatile.  The purse? I usually carry a tote or clutch, but I’m slowly getting out of my comfort zone and went for a small suede crossbody in blush from Madewell.  Not only is it a neutral, but the blush color is perfect for V-day! Last but not least, I added a cherry lip courtesy of Marliese Hunter at MAC in Carmine Rouge.  I am so in love with this color!  The jewel tone coat is the latest to enter my collection a la J.Crew.  Ironically enough, it’s called the “Lady Day Coat” 🙂  Let me know what you think about this look!

 

2nd Look

If your sweetie has something extra fancy planned, I have just the look for you! I fell in L.O.V.E. with this sequin skirt from Macy’s. I’ll admit, I’m not one to gravitate towards sequins, but I think the matte sequin really appealed to me versus a shiny “look at me” sequin.   The next stop on my shopping excursion was Banana Republic, which is where I found this gorgeous faux fur wrap + chandelier earrings + wine colored pumps! I didn’t want to take away from the sequin skirt or the fur wrap, so I knew I needed to keep my top a solid color w/no frills.  I know I can always count on J.Crew for a tissue turtleneck.  They are nice to wear alone or layer them under a sweater or button down. Go on girl! Make those heads turn:-)
