Date Night + Blanket Scarves

IMG_3189IMG_3000IMG_3230IMG_3071IMG_3093A timeless trench coat polishes any look. It looks great worn open or all buttoned up, although, if you wear it open be sure to tie it in the back to ensure it maintains its shape!

I styled my look around my shoes, which add a bright pop of Valentine’s Day spirit in addition to being comfortable enough to dance the night away in. The shoes bring out the red in the blanket scarf, which happens to be my current favorite accessory; it can be styled so many ways! To finish it off, I added sparkly statement earrings and a bold, red lip.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a die-hard believer in Valentines Day or  you’re more of a Galentine’s Day gal, the weekend of the 14th is a fun one for all. And there’s nothing more classic for this weekend than a little red—or pink– outfit.

And while classic for Valentine’s Day isn’t necessarily a bad thing (flowers! Chocolate! Over-sized Teddy bears!), we both know you can do better than throwing on that pink dress you wore last year. The trick to rocking red on Valentine’s Day is to do it in an unexpected way.

Step out the door in a monochromatic outfit with bold touches– say a blanket scarf and red heels– and you’ll stand out in a sea of pinks and reds.

 

Putting together my Valentine’s Day look was a bit of a challenge for me, because I started with the shoes and worked my way up (attempting to avoid an all-red ensemble in the process) . But it’s always fun to look through my closet and rediscover pieces I forgot I owned!
