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 😉

I’m always looking for ways to incorporate florals in the winter months. It’s much easier to do with black, grey, and white floral pieces. I purchased these pants from American Eagle Outfitters last year, and love styling them with vibrant sweaters. This slouchy purple sweater is one of my favorites from H&M. It’s a gorgeous color and so cozy! This one from Nasty Gal is nearly identical, and on sale now!

Mixing prints and patterns can be pretty tricky sometimes. I don’t mix prints as much as I would like, but I’m working on getting out of my comfort zone and challenging myself. Normally, I would choose a neutral clutch for this type of look, but I decided to mix it up and add this oversized optic weave clutch instead. It’s hard to tell in these pictures, but this clutch has a cobalt zipper that adds a playful touch to the outfit. If mixing prints isn’t something that you’re into, then try simply adding a bold patterned clutch. It may turn out better than you expect!

The weather changed completely on us yesterday, and although I’m not quite ready for freezing temperatures and snow, I was happy to bring out my favorite winter coat! I absolutely love this Michael by Michael Kors wool coat. I’m in love with the camel color, and how well it goes with practically everything. Styling it with a red, chunky knit scarf adds texture and automatically winterizes your look!
