Love is in the Air: One Day, Two Ways

Valentine's Day…
Cue the cheesy movies about love stories, romantic dinner date reservations, plethora of Hallmark cards and boxed chocolates, and general love-themed galore. I can't lie… I'm a total sucker for it all.
In anticipation for Valentine's Day, I threw together two outfits with the common theme of one vegan leather jacket.

Daytime outing. My type of outfit for a daytime date consists of your comfiest, coziest tee paired with a girly skirt and awesome black boots. The vegan leather jacket adds a tough edge and keeps your ensemble from looking too feminine and cliche.

Date night. If there's any night that gives girls a right to don a playfully fancy dress to dinner, it's Valentine's Day. That being said, I tried to counter the classic cliche with the same vegan leather jacket to mellow out the femininity. It's a great way to take the leather piece from day to night with ease.

Of All the Fish in the Sea

Free People Fisherman Cap  |  Forever21 sweater (similar)  |  Zara fluted skirt (similar)  |  Deena & Ozzy platforms (similar)
Of all the fish in the sea, you're the one for me.
As an obvious hat addict (very evident if you follow my instagram), I adore coordinating my outfits around hats. I'm a firm believer that it's honestly all in the details, particular with the gorgeous braided and ribbon detailing in this fisherman cap. Bring me coffee & a good black hat and baby, I'm yours (I swear I'm easy to please).

Also, Valentine's Day is in exactly one week! Whether you're taken, single, or ready for a night with the girls, check out this fun and fabulous video I did with my good friend Amy of Vagabond Youth!

Print Party

Zara blazer (similar)  |  Banana Republic fluted skirt and shoes  |  Free People smocked crop top
One of my favorite match ups is print on print. It's an easy and exciting way to spice up any outfit. With pairing prints together, it's essential to keep in mind that the color palettes of the different prints should be similar in tone so the prints still compliment each other and don't clash. To add more dimension and interest to my striped, fluted skirt, I threw on a dark green and navy blue plaid blazer – both different prints yet in the same dark color family. Voila, a easy way to rock some print on print!
