Black is the new black

I recently got these Deena & Ozzy boots on ebay, and I am in love. I have a bad habit of buying shoes that aren't totally Seattle friendly, so I was stoked when I found out that these boots seem to keep my feet dry in the rain. The soles are heavy enough that they make a "click" when I walk, which is a welcomed bonus. The vast majority of the shoes in my closet are black. I keep thinking I should broaden the color selection; but then I'm always ending up with more and more black. What can I say, I like what I like!

Valentines Day Outfits.

I put together a few outfit ideas for St. Valentines Day for anyone still stumped on what to wear. These ideas are all semi casual, but great for a laid back date or for spending the day with some girlfriends. Hell, even if you're spending it alone (but I suggest you get at least a little social for the day) you may as well look cute! I myself plan on having some anti-valentines wine & chocolates with my best friend. Crossing my fingers that the weather will permit me to wear my heart shape sunnys without looking like a fool. (Sunglasses in the rain tends to lead to odd glances and remarks, all while impairing my vision and fooling me into thinking it's dusk)

Valentines look # 3

Shorts & Blouse- Romwe
Purse- Forever 21
Necklace & Sunglasses- Urban Outfitters
Earrings- Lulu's
Wedges- Jeffrey Campbell

This look is professional and simple. The floral print of the shirt and a necklace that reads "love" subtly hint at the holiday, but all the black keeps you from looking overly themed. The blouse would look great tucked into high waisted leather shorts. If its still chilly where you live the outfit would look great with some tights underneath and a black or grey faux fur vest.

Valentines Day Outfit # 1

Bustier- Forever 21
Skirt & Bag- Romwe
Sneakers- Jeffrey Campbell
Socks- Miss KL
Sunglasses- Urban Outfitters
Hoops, Bracelet, & Ring- NastyGal

This look is super fun & flirty; great to wear to school or to a movie. This skirt would be adorable with a black bustier, body suit, or crop top. The lace socks peeking out of the shoes add to the the sweetness of this look. It would look great with a cream colored moto jacket, and a big hair bow would make a great accessory.

Valentines Look # 2

Kimono- Saltwater Gypsy
Maxi Dress, Floral Crown, Arm Cuff- Urban Outfitters
Shoes- Lulu's
Necklace- Forever 21

This look is very boho-chic. I'm obsessed with kimono's, maxis, and floral crowns at the moment so I was thrilled to stick them all in one outfit. The heart cut outs & roses this outfit feature hint at the holiday, but in what feels like a very cool way. I chose to add geometric jewelry, staying away from anything with hearts since the dress already features some. Slightly messy hair and minimal makeup would compliment this look well.

Valentines Lingerie

Lingerie- NastyGal

I couldn't very well make a Valentine's post without any lingerie. Here are my favorite sets, both from NastyGal. I absolutely love black lingerie, especially when it's lace. I should probably try and branch out, but I find black to be sexy and tasteful at the same time. I'll let you decide what to pair your lingerie with, but I hope it includes perfume. Hope you have a wonderful Valentines day!
