Valentine’s Day Outfits Ideas

So the big v-day is coming. And it’s coming fast. So I thought it would be interesting to share with you some outfits that are a little atypical… no floral-y or girly girl.  These look definitely do tell about my style evolution and just how I would do the good old v-day date (today). Maybe because practicality is in mind for me these days; it’s more about comfort and feeling sexy without wearing skimpy clothes. I get that little dresses and satin slips are the thing to sport on v-day, but I went a different route. A little outside of the box I guess.
So without further ado, here are the outfits I would wear on Valentine’s Day
Look # 1

This is my personal favorite and the one I will probably wear this Friday for a date with le hubby. I like it because it’s sexy, it’s badass but still quite feminine. This look can easily be recreated. The leather pants are very sexy, I find, and depending on what top you choose to wear, you can too make this look v-day appropriate. I opted for a feminine, flowy, pink blouse to add a little hint of love and girliness to the look and paired it off with the highest Topshop heels I own. To finish it off, I went for my good old trusted DKNY purse. Again, you can choose to accessories differently, but the main focus of this look is the pants. What’s great about leather pants is that they come in an array of different colors and you can find them everywhere from thrift shops to Zara, to Asos, you name it. Wear the pants to your liking but, most importantly, wear them to flatter your body shape.
Look #2

The second look isn’t so valentine’s typical but I love it, mainly because it screams color. Who said you can’t be playful and youthful on Valentine’s. You just add the right accessories to make your look a lot more date ready. Perhaps more jewels or bedazzled heels…For this look, I went with simple red trousers that fit like perfection and added a rainbow sweater to pull the look together. I let the bag do the talking. This heart-shaped Kate Spade bag is one that is dear to my heart as it was one of my first designer purchases. Although I don’t wear it much, it is very practical and, yes, it does fit my phone! This look would be one I’d wear for when I don’t feel like wearing dresses but still make an effort to be cute. I would change up the shoes to pumps as well, but, here, I went with my favorite yellow L’intervalle booties. They’re so freaking comfortable!
Look #3

The third look is very much spot on Valentine’s day in an outfit. The shirt says it all; it’s pink (neon, might I add) and it’s heart-printed, which is super adorable. This shirt can easily be paired with a cute little black, navy or even pink mini skirt and booties, but I went for a more practical choice and used the same red trouser as the second look. Red trousers are a good item to own as they are versatile and make any outfit choice extra cool. They always add a little something-something, if you know what I mean. Textured trousers are even better!

Look #4

Last but certainly not least!!! This one is what I would probably opt for if I wanted to do a dress and be a girly girl. I love to be unconventional (as we all have figured it out by now, only for the pure joy of being unique). I never liked doing something like others, I liked to break the rules and think outside the box. As for wearing a dress, I would go for something with color (obviously), but not necessarily super sexy (ie: slip dress or bodycon mini or something of the sort). This dress from Zara is super cool for the print and the cut (straight). I love to wear it unbelted usually but for the sake of adding shape to my body on Valentine’s, I added a vintage leather belt to be all snatched! I, of course, went for the yellow booties again, to bring the yellow flowers even more forward. I would go for a clutch for a classy look and slinky sandals but I wanted to keep the look functional and that’s why I paired it with my DKNY purse.

At the end of the day, ladies, you gotta wear what makes you comfortable and always remember the golden rule–that less is more. The less body you show, the sexier you will look. You want to attract the right vibes and so keep the girls tucked and focusing on accentuating your body with accessories. That’ll be the way to go!

Hope y’all found these outfits inspiring to create your signature looks and to be uniquely and unapologetically yourselves and may v-day bring you nothing but love and happiness.

Not just another blazer….

My husband’s been enjoying his discovering journey to Canada and has been loving every moment of it. Seeing him discover my home and see the world I come from is so adorable and touching! He’s so cute and I can just put him in my pocket!!!

So…while on this discovery journey…how can I not take my husband to go apple picking?? I mean this is the ultimate Canadian tradition and he must follow in those foot steps. So we went on a little road trip to Saint-Eustache to a cute little farm called Verger Lacroix. We spent a few hours picking apples, walking around the farm and visiting the animals.

Although it was raining that day, we had loads of fun and went with the family…it was one of the best days we spent so far in Montreal.

I decided, even though it wasn’t the most appropriate place, to dress up kinda fancy…but in a casual relaxed way. I decided to incorporate some vintage in there and some thrifted items. Here’s how it came out.

This blazer is on of the blazer that my momma got me while I was away..it’s such a cute piece. It’s an 80s Parisian satin blazer. It’s very comfortable and adorable to wear over anything. I can imagine wearing it over a fancy red dress!!! OOOoouuu, that would be so freaking cute!

PS: for those interested..I am putting this blazer up for sale on my Etsy store. A percentage of each sale goes to random acts of kindness!! *wink*wink*

I thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures that day..I am not a photographer by any means but I love exploring and experimenting with different mediums and I enjoyed taking all the colors in and different textures. Nature is a beautiful creative space and I love that we are free to see and discover here at home.

Unfortunately, there are some places in the world where there are bridges and borders and some people are not as blessed as we are here in Canada to travel. This land is filled with amazing opportunities and I am truly blessed to be a part of it!  And I am very proud to show my husband around so he can also see what I see. Canada is a great place to live in!
