Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so today I am sharing a look that is suitable no matter what your plans may be. Whether it’s  a date with your valentine, a first date, a girls’ night, or plans with your family, this outfit fits the bill. I chose to style a classic look with a striking red coat, black and gold accessories, and a leopard hat that adds a little vintage touch.  

My husband and I celebrated Valentine’s Day a few days early, since he won’t be in town on Friday, and I just couldn’t get over the adorable Kate Spade “Charming Key Bangle” that he picked out all on his own while on a business trip in NYC. I’m in love with it! He definitely holds the key to my heart 😉

My parents told the family to get ready for dinner in Market Square last night, little did we know they had tickets for The Moscow Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker. The Nutcracker is one of my favorite ballets, so I was thrilled when we ended up at the Tennessee Theatre. Luckily, I was wearing a dress and heels! The ballet was wonderful and brought me right back to my dancing days. I sure do miss it, but I’ll always be a dancer at heart.

I don’t know about you, but when I get a call for a job interview the first thing that comes to mind is “Yes! I have an interview, hope I get the job!”, immediately followed by “OMG, what am I going to wear?!”. Dressing for an interview is risky business. You want to look professional, yet stand out. It is important to leave a lasting impression on the interviewer, and if you choose to wear something a little different than most, they will be sure to remember you. I chose a green blazer, rather than traditional black, to stand out from the rest. It’s up to you to bring your ‘A’ game during the interview, but if you take a few fashion risks, you’re already ahead of the game!

When it comes to shopping, I prefer to buy items that are versatile. These plaid tights found at T.J.Maxx a few years ago have been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. They look so classy styled with a little black dress and high heels, yet they feel appropriate paired with an oversized sweater and combat boots for a relaxed grungy look. I love styling from one extreme to the next!
