All of a sudden today while I was getting ready it dawned on me…. VALENTINE’S DAY! It’s sneaking up on us real quick! Of course because Chris isn’t going to be here my planning is a little easier, his Valentine is already in the mail! I still take care of my honey on the holidays he misses! #carepackage
Now what to do here?! The boys and I are going to a fun dinner out at our favorite restaurant nearby… so I want to look nice but more conservative obviously! I’ll save the heat for when Chris get’s back! Heh!
Anytime I start thinking about an outfit for a specific occasion I usually lock onto one item first and build on it. Today it happened to be a rich burgundy pair of pants! Snag THESE at Nordstrom, they’re KUT from the Kloth and they’re currently 50% off!!! Just $34.75!! Score! I love anytime I can order petite because even though I do rock my curves, I’m short! I have short legs and a short torso, petite pants and dresses fit perfect! I wish more clothes came in petite! :end rant:
My jacket is an oldie but goodie from Express, it was an awesome dupe for a much more expensive jacket and personally it was more comfortable too!! I’ve found a similar jacket HERE! It’s adorable and on SALE at Guess! Only $49!
I love wearing fun heels or statement shoes with skinnies! They are the perfect pant to show off your shoe game! These Chinese Laundry nude pumps add a little spice to my otherwise ‘mom’ outfit! Now heels, especially when I’m out with the boys, I don’t want them to be too high. These are a good moderate heel that I’ve even worn to work many times. I can walk, run or even climb stairs with ease in these babies! I shy away from the kitten heel to lengthen my body, but keep it mid-height and manageable. THESE are also Chinese Laundry and while they’re $99, grab you another pair! Use code FEB50 and get one pair for 50% off! I love a good shoe sale!
My top even though it’s covered is a Gap favorite from last year. I just found almost the SAME one for $12.97, also at Gap… HERE! It’s a wear anywhere, with just about anything top! I love it and of course Gap is awesome about having gorgeous pieces that are wash and wear… perfect for busy moms!
A little subtle smoke to my normal everyday eye to give it a little bit of drama… I used the Mad For Matte palette from e.l.f. Cosmetics and it’s only $10! I also used their Studio Matte Lip Color in Wine for a pop of color on my lips! I love these and get one in EVERY color because… $3!
Now let’s talk about those of you lucky enough to spend your V-Day with your handsome husbands!! I looked everywhere high and low to find the pieces that I would be wearing if I could paint the town red with my hunky husband!!
Let’s get S E X Y
I’m in LOVE with lace dresses right now. They’re sexy and I’ve not tried one on that isn’t flattering! This one is super affordable from ASOS! I love that it has the cap sleeves and with the high neck detail you of course wouldn’t need a necklace, just a simple diamond or stud earrings. Simple and sexy! Snag this one HERE and you better be quick because it’s on sale for only $69!
Shoes would be easy… my favorite nude strappy heels from Steve Madden. These are perfect to pair with any dress that makes such a bold statement. Find them HERE for $79.95.
Another subtle sexy dress is this one from Express. I love that it’s going to hug your curves and give an hourglass shape. Made to stretch it’s going to be an option for comfort too, which is always a bonus! Now with this cut-out detail in the back!! Stop it! I love this! Express knows how to bring it too with quality party dresses so I know this one is a show stopper! Grab it HERE for $88!
You could also go with something more casual and sexy like this top from H&M it’s bold red color would be well balanced with a pair of black leggings! This Jersey tunic is a bargain at $24.99 and available up to 4XL. Grab it HERE! I’d accessorize with a statement necklace to give it some sparkle!
Now that my mind is on leggings… a faux leather legging with this tunic would be amazing and I just found out SPANX made them. The price tag is a little high, but they’ve got the reputation for quality so I’m sure they’re worth it! I’ve linked them HERE and they’re also available at Nordstroms. If you’re one who loves to try things like this on rather than order online.
Have a Happy Valentine’s Day, but promise me however you’re going to spend it… you’re going to look FABULOUSSSS!!!
