The countdown is on and there are only a few days left until Valentine’s Day. I am capping off my series of V-Day posts (Galentine’s Gifts, Gifts Under $100, and V-Day Accessories) with what I would be wearing if I were going out for this special occasion. Of course I will still be celebrating, but Sutton and I have never really done it big because our anniversary is just a few days later. This will be our 5 year anniversary and I seriously can’t believe it! I can’t wait to wear this CeCe by Cynthia Steffe dress for the occasion. It is the perfect frock for Valentine’s Day, a special date night or even a wedding. This dress still screams LOVE even though it is not the usual red or pink.

Here are some other great options for whatever your Valentine has in store for you.

What are you wearing this Valentine’s Day?

Black, White and a Hint of Purple

Blouse: Ann Taylor | Leggings: Rachel Zoe, Old (Similar Style) | Shoes: Steve Madden (On Sale!) | Hat: Rag & Bone | Handbag: Heather Henry Design | Rings: Sydney Evan and David Yurman | Bracelets: David Yurman

This is what I would call my uniform. If I am ever pressed for time and need something to wear, I always resort back to my go-to look of black and white. I am seriously obsessed with this oversized white shirt from Ann Taylor. It has the polished look you get from a standard button-up but embodies the effortless cool of an oversized blouse. I paired it with black, leather paneled leggings for a monochromatic effect. My favorite Heather Henry bag adds the perfect pop of color.

What’s your uniform?

Casual Saturday

Sweater: J. Crew, Old (Similar Style Here and Here) | Jeans: Rag & Bone, Wash Sold Out | Shoes: Tory Burch | Tote: Kate Spade | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Necklace: Custom Made (Similar Style) | Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Bracelets: David Yurman | Rings: James Avery + Sydney Evan | Lips: Sugar, Rose

Saturdays are for running errands; shopping and doing whatever you couldn’t do during the week. With all of that commotion, dressing comfortably is key. For me, that usually means a great pair of jeans, a thin, non-fuss sweater and espadrilles or flats. I am constantly wearing all black in the winter but I’m trying to keep it light on this early Saturday morning.

Here’s to hoping the sun will come out!

Currently Obsessed: Winter Florals

We hadn’t seen any winter weather here in Texas until this past weekend, but I am already ready for spring. I’m busting out the floral prints a few months early in darker hues and more structured silhouettes than usual. Here are a few of my favorites from this budding trend.

Cape Coat DIY

I have been wanting a cape coat for the longest time but haven’t been able to find one that suits my style. While I was searching through my Grandma’s closet the other day I found this cape sweater. It was missing a few buttons, but I knew I could give it a little bit of a facelift.

Before, the buttons were a gunmetal color with an anchor stamped on them. Definitely not my style! So, instead of trying to find similar buttons I decided to cut them off and sew on new ones. I’m not crafty at all but sewing on a button is extremely easy. I purchased these gold-trimmed, black onyx faceted buttons to dress it up.

It is amazing to see how something as simple as replacing the buttons brought this cape to life.
