Navy Girl

When it comes time to find an occasion dress, cocktail dress, or a date night look, my go-to color is navy. I’m a navy girl through & through. I love that it still has that glam, evening feel, but somehow doesn’t feel as harsh as black. In fact, navy feels classy, classic, & very feminine. Another great thing about navy is that it plays well with so many of my favorite colors & can be worn all year long. Some of the best colors to pair with navy this time of year are white, green, tan, & yellow.

Keeping It Classy

This LND is the epitome of a date night look. Would you believe me if I told you it was only $20?! I know! What a steal! I love the high neck with the sheer lace combined with the very classy mini length. It’s not too short making it easy to sit in comfortably. Phew! The winning features on this dress for me though have to be the ruffle sleeves & ruffle trim on the bottom. Such classically feminine details making it a must have item in my wardrobe.

Cute & Flirty

A dress like this can easily be dressed up or down making it the perfect dress for any occasion. I wanted this date night look to be both cute & flirty. As I mentioned before, I love the color pairing of navy & green, so I wanted to add some subtle green accents to complete this look. My new palm leaf raffia block heels fit this look so well bringing a bit of green to the outfit. The raffia block heels also have a way of being both dressy & casual at the same time if that’s even possible. For a touch of glam, I wore my Kate Spade bright green earrings packed with a bit of sparkle. As I said in my previous post, I like to add my own personal flair to my outfits & a great way to do that is with a clear bag like the one I’m wearing. It’s fun to think about the colors & aesthetics of the contents of my bag to really complete my look.

On The Daily

I’m totally a girl who loves color, but something about the freshness of spring makes me crave sweet, feminine neutral tones on the daily. This time of year I gravitate mostly towards white, beige, light pink, & navy. Those are my go-to colors that fit seamlessly into my spring wardrobe. I love finding really beautiful & affordable pieces in my spring neutrals to wear over & over all season long. Wearing quality pieces that are flattering on your body & make you feel your best are always a great way to spend your money.

What Makes A Piece Great?

First of all, fit is everything. Don’t settle for something that almost fits you. Choose to spend your money on the most figure flattering pieces so you know you’ll love wearing them over & over again. Then look for the details. I love feminine pieces with bow, pearls, buttons, flowers, puffy sleeves, & gold accents. Knowing what you like is half the battle. Choose details you are drawn to, then find pieces that incorporate those details into the design.

Finding quality neutral pieces at an affordable price is the best way to ensure your daily process of choosing what outfit to wear is as effortless & stress-free as possible.

Keeping Things Interesting

Another way to wear spring neutrals without feeling like your outfit is a bit boring is to spice up the silhouette or shape your outfit is creating. Why not try a pair of wide leg pants or culottes in your favorite neutral tone? Go with a wrap top or one with more dramatic sleeves. What about a neutral midi skirt with ruffles for a little pizazz? Add a bit of a statement shoe in those same neutral colors to really elevate your look. Or play a bit with textures & pair your go-to neutral look with a great woven bag.

Don’t forget the lipstick! Applying your perfect nude lipstick is a very important final touch to a great spring neutral look. My absolute favorite nude lipstick of all time is the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in the shade 70 Le Nu.

Re-Thinking The LBD

Typically, we think the perfect date night look features the one & only little black dress. For this playful & casual Valentine’s Day look, I want to re-imagine that look for a fun daytime outfit. Instead of black, I chose a navy dress. Navy is a classic color that has a much more daytime appropriate feel. I highly recommend adding a little navy dress into your wardrobe if you don’t have one already. This dress is probably the most worn dress I own! The playful & casual Valentine wears her LND. Let’s see how she accessorizes this look & what kind of date she wears this look to.

The Look

The playful & casual Valentine wears her LND layered over a sweet high neck cream top. She is cutesy & is not afraid of a little cheese, so she comes prepared with homemade valentines in her clear purse for both decor & to give to her valentine. Pink statement earrings are a must & she finds the perfect pink lipstick to match. She knows her navy kitty flats will be cute & comfortable as well as a great conversational piece.

The Date

This outfit can be worn to many different kinds of dates. I imagine these love birds wandering through an old book store where they each find books that spark their interests & let their imaginations run wild. They exchange valentines & blush at each other’s sweet & cheesy words to one another. Then they spend hours in their favorite coffee shop reading their new books, holding hands, & sipping on warm cortados.

How To Perfectly Wrap Your Gifts This Year

How To Perfectly Wrap Your Gifts This Year

Hello Everyone!

Wrapping presents is one of my very favorite things to do year-round, so when Christmas time comes around, I get giddy with excitement. Today I want to share with you how to perfectly wrap your gifts this year. I love letting my creativity run wild as I plan out color schemes & mood boards for my Christmas wrapping vibes. This year, I went with simple, minimal paper with feminine touches of gold, bows, & sparkles. Adding every small detail gives each gift a personal touch as well as decorates your home while living under your tree until Christmas.

Now grab a cup of hot cocoa (recipes here) & let’s get wrapping!

How To Perfectly Wrap Your Gifts This Year

The past three years, I have used the gorgeous Rifle Paper Co. wrapping paper for my holiday wrapping, & I absolutely loved it. I love Anna’s designs, but I decided to make a change this year because I remembered how lovely Target’s Sugar Paper products were last year. Recently, I went to Target, making a beeline for the Sugar Paper display, & quickly filled my cart with all of the beautiful holiday wrapping things. I decided to stick with red, pink, white, gold, & navy, letting the tree be the only green. The metallic touches to these Sugar Paper products are what really speaks to me. They are minimal, elegant, classy, & still very festive.

Once each gift is perfectly wrapped in paper, now the fun really begins. Adding different colors, textures, & sizes of ribbon helps set each present apart. I love this white ribbon with a gold metallic edge as well as this skinny pink velvet ribbon. For a bigger statement, I pull out the big guns with these large glitter bows that are sure to be show stopping.

For packages that need a little extra something, I will tie on a little gold bell or one of these tiny Christmas ornaments for extra embellishment.

My biggest wrapping tip for you this year is to try to make each gift unique & special. Getting creative, & putting that little extra thought into the presentation of each gift is something your loved ones will cherish & appreciate. Plus, just think of how gorgeous they will look under your tree this whole holiday season!
