hello lovely readers! :) i'm back, and i'm here to share some of my style picks for valentine's day! i put together two outfits, either of which will definitely help you to look your best for v-day. i didn't want the outfits to scream "valentine's day", thus allowing you to have more versatile pieces that you can wear again. to see details, read on after the jump!

i've listed the item details and links to where you can buy them below! some items may be out of your price range (if you're like me..) so if you need help finding similar and more affordable alternatives, just leave a comment or shoot me an email, and i'd be glad to help you out!

  1. I'm so in love with both those outfits!
    The heels and the blazer of the first picture are amazing and so is the faux fur vest in picture two!
    Considering faux fur vests...I never know how to combine those, could you maybe do a little tutorial or some outfit samples? That would be soo great!!
