Alas, here we are at the end of February 2019, and it was a good 2nd month to the year!
If you’ve been around for the last 3 V-Day posts I’ve made (linked here, here and here), you know I’m not against the holiday regardless of my relationship status and that I really actually enjoy the holiday. Probably because my momma always made EVERY holiday, regardless of how big it was, ULTRA special. So I learned from an early age that Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just about showing love to your significant other, but to everyone, including yourself! J Which means, you can never be lonely if you always have yourself as a date.
But really, I just love the holiday because the associated colors are part of my favorite color palette!!
Red, pink, blush, fushia, magenta…
I found these hot pink pants at Banana Republic while Christmas shopping, but with will and determination, I resisted the temptation… and lucky I did because I found the same pair online for $30. Yes, $30. And the color is everything my pink loving heart could dream of. I love that they can be dressed up, or dressed down. I paired it with some dad sneakers and a fitted blazer (because I didn’t already have an oversized blazer… didn’t want to buy into the trend, but I may just hit up a Goodwill on second thought) with a tee underneath to keep the business casual pieces from being too stuffy. Or with a pair of leopard platforms as an ode to the leopard craze Fall 2018, a leather jacket and a dark lip to give the pants more edge.
This blush gingham dress by The Confidante Collection is fun, flirty, romantic, and sexy all in one. I fell in love with the sleeves, and the unique color of the pattern. And the ruching at the midriff is incredibly flattering.
I love that this piece is versatile as well, being able to dress up or down. I styled it here with a blush suede jacket I found at Target, white sock boots (which were on clearance for $8 at Target) and then, back at it again with the dad sneakers.
Pink is such a cheery, fresh color and I love that with Valentine’s Day I get a good helping of lots of makeup, fashion, and decor in this fun hue. Makes me ready for Spring!
