I love dressing up! I am always so excited to start getting ready super early, take my time, and dress up for a night out with my hubby. Since this past weekend was Valentine’s day, we scheduled a fun date night out. I decided to wear this fun outfit with accents of red to stay in theme with Valentine’s day!
I recently got these jeans at Nordy’s and finally broke them out. They are seriously my favorite. I’ve been wearing them all weekend. They are super comfortable and I love the distressed denim look throughout. Plus, they are only $88 vs the regular $200 price tag on other designer jeans. I paired them with a simple white top and this long vest (that was only $28!). I found this adorable, most comfortable coat I’ve ever worn, online at boohoo.com. The brand is out of the UK and has a large selection of clothes at great prices. Their shipping costs are only $3.99 too, which is always a plus. Lastly, let’s talk about these shoes. I don’t have red heels so when I saw these suede numbers at 30% off, I had to get a better look. They go perfect with jeans and a tee or dressed up with a skirt or dress. Head to DSW for tons of shoe sales!
What did you wear on your Valentine’s date night?
President’s Day sales are always so great because they fall right in the middle of late winter/early spring, which makes it a perfect time to purchase a few items to add to your spring wardrobe. I’ve picked sale items from Nordstrom but there are several stores with sales today. You can find a list of them below. I’ve also gone through each of my sale items and discussed why I chose them. Take a look!

Valentine’s Day is only 2 days away and as I’ve mentioned before, it’s one of my favorite holidays, because it’s an excuse to get dressed up with your love.
If you are still trying to figure out what you plan to wear for your date night with your special someone, I’ve picked out two fun outfits that you can either splurge or save on.
Splurge Outfit | I saw this floral dress in Nordy’s catalog and I’ve been eyeing it ever since. It’s an absolutely perfect dress to celebrate Valentine’s day in. I love the texture, the pattern, and the back. You definitely gotta check out the back!
In case you didn’t know, I am a sucker for shoes, handbags, and accessories. Sorry Chuck! (poor hubby). And I’m talking expensive shoes, handbags, and accessories. First, can we talk about this gorgeous, blush pink Chloe handbag. I’m dying! I absolutely love it. It’s the perfect blush color, is a perfect accessory year round, and matches my favorite Valentino heels I’m showcasing as well.
To top this outfit off, we have to add a statement piece of jewelry. My favorite piece to add to a feminine outfit is a gorgeous Michele watch like this one. The glitz, glam, and size adds a bold element to this sweet, soft look. Add a few bangle bracelets and your set. Head to Nordstrom if you want this outfit for your weekend!
Save Outfit | Now, let’s be real. Who can afford to buy a Chloe handbag, Valentino heels, and a Michele watch all at once. Well…not me! (I wish!) However, we can put together a rich look on a budget.
This baby doll dress is only $58 and is adorable. It’s the perfect blush color for Valentine’s day and can be paired with a simple, winter white blazer or shawl when it get’s chilly at night. Pair it with delicate jewelry like this $15 bangle bracelet and $18 ‘love’ necklace that fits the look of this dress perfectly.
Lastly, I added less expensive shoes and a handbag to pop some red into this soft, blush dress. This red Rebecca Minkoff clutch is under $100 and can be worn year-round. Same with these patent red heels. They are the perfect red, match this clutch, and can be paired together at Christmas time too. Double duty!
Head to Nordstrom and T & J Designs for this look.
As we head into the weekend, I hope you all have a great Valentine’s day with your hubby, boyfriend, girlfriends, or someone new.
Happy Valentine’s Day all!
I love people that wear their heart on their sleeve. They aren’t afraid to openly express their emotions. Definitely my kind of people. Naturally, when I saw this sweatshirt, I had to have it. I have been looking at it for about a year and never actually bought it. It was either sold out or I wasn’t ready to drop $60 for a sweatshirt. But, I finally did and I love it! Plus, it’s perfect timing for Valentine’s Day.
Ily Couture does a great job of producing high quality clothing. This sweatshirt is thick and super soft. Just perfect! Worth the price and super cute. Honestly, I may just wear it to work on Friday (it’s that cute!). You can easily dress it up with a pair of ripped denim and some fun heels – automatically work appropriate.
If you are planning on getting some fun gifts for your Valentine’s Day, head over to Ily Couture. They have some adorable gift ideas for your favorite ladies.

Enjoy! xo Lauren
