Valentine’s Day Lookbook – 5 Outfit Ideas

I’m so excited to share my first lookbook! These five outfits are pretty simple to recreate whether you are celebrating with a casual girl’s brunch or going out for date night. I tried to cover a variety of looks with different vibes, so I hope you love it!

Which outfit was your favorite? Should I do more lookbooks?

Weekend Wear: Orange Bomber Jacket

I’m obsessed with orange

It was surprisingly warm this weekend, which was a lovely break from the 20 degree temps we usually have in January. I decided to celebrate with a colorful, casual look.

I’m slowly amassing orange clothing – it’s one of my favorite colors and makes me happy when I wear it. I now have a corduroy skirt, loose sweater, swing tee, and this gorgeous jacket from Scotch & Soda. It sold out unfortunately, but here’s a similar option from Uniqlo.

I’m also wearing a pair of burgundy legging jeans from Loft. They’re a softer material which makes them really comfortable and they have a cute back zip detail. The petite length hits right above my ankle which I find flattering.

Lastly, I’ve raved about Dolce Vita before and live in these suede sneakers in the cooler months. They have a higher shaft than your typical sneaker, so they keep my ankles warm, but they’re a perfect light taupe so they transition from winter to spring nicely. Here’s this year’s updated version.

What do you guys think about this orange and burgundy color combo?

Weekend Wear: Freezing in Chicago

A quick outfit in snowy Chicago

It was -2* in Chicago earlier this week and about 5* when my mom quickly snapped this photo. I love being home, but I forgot how cold it can be! Thankfully, I received a few gifts to fight the freezing weather this year.

This vest is so comfortable and warm – I’ve even been wearing it around the house. I like that it doesn’t add too much bulk, so I can layer a jacket over it. I also love the floral print which has white, subtle pink, and blue colors.

I’ve been obsessed with these chenille fingerless gloves since Thanksgiving, so I was really happy to find the pink pair under the tree this year. I also received the scarf and matching beanie. I love them all! They’re so cozy and cute.

How do you stay warm in crazy cold temps?

Weekend Wear: Holiday Details

Feeling festive, staying warm

This Calvin Klein coat is one of my favorites because it’s pretty warm, but I think it looks cuter than a puffy jacket over a dressier outfit. I love the toggle closures and wrap belt, which pulls in my waist and helps keep out the wind. The faux fur hood is also removable. Here are a few similar black coats with faux fur and toggles (my favorite!), the wrap belt, or a zipper.

The ruffles on this top are so sweet, but the sheer yoke and sleeves add a little drama that’s perfect for a holiday party. I think it’s so cute tucked into a little suede mini skirt, but it would pair nicely with velvet pants as well. I love this blush pink pair and these green ones are fun too.

A tiny clutch is my go-to accessory for holiday parties. I love the velvet fabric and pretty clasp on this vintage clutch. It just barely fits my phone without the case and maybe a lipstick and credit card. This rounded box clutch from Etsy is really similar to mine and this velvet Kate Spade pouch is currently on sale. Here’s one from ASOS that has a lot more room – I love the ring detail too.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
