Be Mine

J and I are going to be on vacation over Valentine’s day again this year, so my date outfit will most likely consist of some sort of bathing suit and cover up.  BUT that doesn’t mean that I won’t be sharing some V-day outfit inspiration with all of you on the blog this week!  And today’s outfit is all about pink!  I always feel my best in a pretty silk top styled with skinny jeans, pumps, and a chic black jacket-so some sort of version of this outfit is always a no-brainer for me when it comes to date night.  And adding a bright pop of pink makes this go-to combo perfect for a Valentine’s night out on the town, or a more low key date night in…

 Jacket: Express (old), similar (my other favorite jacket), similar, LOVE this | Silky Top: Express (my favorite-comes in TONS of cute colors!) | Necklace: Dillards (old), almost identical | Skinnies: American Eagle | Ring: Kendra Scott | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Bag: Clare Vivier (sold out), clutch version | Pumps: Franco Sarto (SUPER comfy!)

And even though I’ve said it a million times, I just have to say it again.  These silky v-neck tops from Express are the bomb!  And I am especially smitten with all of the fun new spring colors hitting the stores right now-like this neon pink version.  It is definitely going to be on major repeat in my closet this season, and should be in your’s as well!

Happy Monday!

 

 

 

 

Party Pants

Confession time: when I was in high school, my girlfriends and I loved The Spice Girls (like really loved them!)!  So when they came out with their movie, we not only dressed up to go and see it, but we also each had our own Spice Girl name.  And mine was, wait for it, Sparkle Spice!  If you are reading this post and you know me, then this probably comes as no surprise to you.  But for those of you who don’t know me personally, then it should be noted that I LOVE sparkles-glitter, sequins, you name it, if it blings I am in!  So while I feel like people normally bust out their sequins during the holidays or for special occasions, when styled the correct way, I think sequins can be worn any time.  And what better way to dress down a pair of sequin pants than with a favorite tee and a surplus jacket (remember how versatile I said they were in my Wardrobe Staples post??)…

Neon Mono

I love a good monochromatic combination.  And while my instinct is usually to use neutrals for monochromatic looks, this necklace/sweater combo has convinced me that it works really well with with color (especially neon!) too!!
