3 Dressy Casual Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas + 12 Valentines Graphic Tees


With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I wanted to put together a few dressy casual looks that are perfect for however your celebrating this year. I used a lot of basics to keep these outfits simple but still interchangeable with a few pops of color. Because of the crazy weather we are having with the cold, wind and crazy humidity I had to do mirror outfit selfies for this one.

In addition to these looks are some fun graphic tees that are perfect for Valentines day. All the links to shop are below.

Date night Outfit– Black skinny’s with a simple black top paired with a pop of red for the shoe. If you can’t tell from all these looks I love wearing black, so this head to toe black look might just be my favorite.

To Amp up the Look: For this crazy weather another option to make this outfit a little warmer would be to add a fur vest.— I don’t have one at the moment, but it’s defiantly on my wish list.

I always love celebrating Valentines day because it was the day my husband proposed 6 years ago, so it’s always a very sentimental day for the both of us. Let me know which look was your favorite and how your celebrating V day this year. 🙂

Outfit: Navy, Gray & Black

It’s finally December and it’s still warm outside, well cool in the mornings and warm in the afternoons. So I wanted to put together a kind of transitional outfit for this crazy weather we are having. To transition this look to the afternoon, just switch the boots for some comfy flats and lose the vest. This is one my favorite outfit combinations for fall, a long vest over a top with leggings and boots. I’m going to be honest the top is not as long as I would like, but I loved the color combination of the navy plaid with the gray vest. Like most of my looks this one is very simple, easy, and a perfect casual fall outfit. 🙂

Outfit: Is it Fall Yet?

Can I make the fall weather get here faster, by just wearing fall clothes? I’m just saying… It’s worth a shot, right? 🙂  I am so ready for this crazy hot weather to be over. Who’s with me? It’s been 100 degrees everyday, all day. So I’m trying to get into the fall spirit by putting together a simple fall look paired with, what I think are, must have pieces. One in particular, are these taupe booties from Lucky Brand that I am obsessed with. They are super comfortable and match just about everything, I defiantly recommend these. Another must have piece for fall are black jeggings. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with some stretchy black pants. I think we can all agree on that one. They are comfortable and they can be worn so many different ways.

The statement piece in this look has to be this denim vest. I love it!! It’s so fun and different than any other denim vest I have every seen. Oh, and did I mention it has pockets! I bought it a little while back from one of my new favorite stores Alter’d State and it has since been discontinued. 🙁  However, I did find some very similar looking options that you can go and check out below. I am a sucker for a good vest, which I think you can tell from my previous outfit posts. I have so many of them in my closet, it’s a bit of a problem. FYI, vests are a great way minimize a larger chest. When I hear the word “minimize,” trust me, I’m all over it. 🙂

Below are all the links to the this outfit and more.

Although we are in the middle of summer and in 100 degree weather, I still choose to wear black, go figure. What can I say, I am defiantly a neutrals kind of a girl. I think most of my closet consists of black, grey, khaki, and a little bit of white. Another thing I am a sucker for besides neutrals, is a fun graphic tee. I paired this t-shirt with ripped skinny jeans, and my most loved wedges. When it comes to finding fun graphic tees, there are so many cools styles out there. From band logos, geometric designs, to ripped up styles, and even fun sayings.  It’s a really great way to add something unique to any outfit. They go so well with ripped jeans, shorts, or even as a cool layering piece under a jacket for the colder months. They really go with just about everything.

Below are some graphic tees that I am obsessed with, all for $40 or under, (minus the Pink Floyd tee)

Outfit: Mommy on the Go + Pink Sneakers

Happy Wednesday! I hope you had a awesome 4th of July. For today’s post I wanted to quickly share an OOTD for all the mommy’s on the go. It’s a very simple look, perfect for running errands all while trying to entertain a toddler. One of my favorite things to do to amp up any simple outfit, is to add a vest. This one in particular, I love because of the khaki green color, it really serves as more of a neutral so it goes with everything. These pink sneakers are a brand new addition to my wardrobe and one that I have been wearing everyday. They’re super cute and super comfortable, which is key. I got them from target, and they are a perfect dupe for the Steve Madden pink sneakers. They also come in hunter green and white. 🙂

This look I wore running errands with my little one, and it held up even when my daughter decided to throw a massive tantrum inside a store. I can’t count the times I was wearing something a little low cut or a little loose and then a meltdown happens. While your trying to pick your child up they’re pulling and tugging, and all of a sudden, you realize everyone in the store just saw your bra and/or underwear. :/ #momlife #keepinitreal

Below are the complete outfit details along with links to more pink sneakers.

Wedges, Booties, Heels oh my!

One-haute mess

 Your can never have to many pairs of shoes! Am I right? 😉 Shoe shopping is one of those sacred things we as women cherish, and when you find a good deal on a pair, it’s like hitting the mother load.:) So without further ado, here are a few deals on some shoe dupes (duplicates) that you are going to want to check out.

I put together some new styles that are very similar to each other, with both high and low price points. I actually just ordered myself the black booties at the top for the lesser price. They fit like a glove.:) Now I am eyeing those black high heels as well as the lace up ballet flats!  I just need to figure out how and when I’d actually wear them. 🙂

Check out the links below for these great finds!!
