It's a Date

Blogger Date Night Outfit

Top (sold out - similar here) | Jeans | Shoes | Bag

I know it's February and you can't walk into a drugstore without seeing red & pink hearts everywhere, but I've still been surprised at the number of requests I've had to post date night outfits lately. I really appreciate when readers DM me their requests on Instagram (and clearly I'm paying attention!), so i wanted to do a quick little post leading into Valentine's Day.
Whenever someone asks me what to wear on a date, my advice is this: choose something that makes you feel pretty, confident, and comfortable (because the last thing you want is to be worrying about something fitting wrong or needing constant adjustment). This look checks those boxes for me. It's feminine without being overly dressy and offers a little something special with the exposed back (but is designed so it won't slide off your shoulders).

Valentine's Day Flatlay

Valentine's Day is right around the corner

And no matter how you're celebrating (or who you're celebrating with), I'm sharing my favorite 5 tops for February 14th:

Kebecka Blouse Cupcakes and Cashmere


I love that this top has a high neckline but balances the more modest silhouette with a playful sheer overlay.

Charlie Velvet Cami NYC


Me-OW. This cami can also be worn backwards, but I think I prefer it with the lace-up deep-V in back. Not sure anything says Valentine's Day more a than red velvet and lace combo.

Allegra Top Line And Dot


If sweet and soft is more your vibe this Valentine's Day, I really like this pink-y mauve off-the-shoulder top. Pair with a dainty necklace or some bold earrings to complete the look.

Theo Blouse Lovers + Friends


If you want to be a little more daring on the 14th, then this tie-front top is what I would choose. I love the bold red polka dots and slightly ballooned sleeve. In case you love the plunging neckline but don't want to be exposed below the tie, there's always the option to safety-pin the rest of the front.

Amore Sweater Paper London


If your Valentine's Day is more relaxed (whether that's dinner at home with your significant other or a movie night with your friends), I love this casual-but-festive sweater. The heart cut-out is a really pretty and unexpected touch.

I'm wearing a pastel that isn't pink?!
That's right. Although I won't be packing away my blush tones anytime soon (/ever), I'm adding more pastels into my 2018 wardrobe - starting with this gorgeous blue knit. Why wait for spring when winter sweaters look so good in ice-cream hues?

Chic This Week 051

What's CHIC this week (vol. 051)

Everything's coming up lavender. As springtime pastels begin showing up in stores, the light purple hue is looking to be a fashion favorite in 2018.

The "messy bun" really is an art - and one that I'm looking to master.

"What's that thing on your phone?" - after purchasing a Pop Socket before my trip to Morocco, I don't think I'll ever go without one. There's a reason why the odd phone accessory has become a staple among celebrities and bloggers.

I've always been a fan of a feather detail (in fact, my college graduation dress had some wispy feather embellishments), so I'm excited to see them featured on the runways for next season (pictured: Givenchy, Paris Couture Fashion Week).

My newest Netflix obsession: THE CROWN. I've just started season two and I can't get enough.

Going Wild

Leopard Print Coat

Leopard has been increasingly popular this winter (and has even been called a new neutral), but I tend to be hesitant when it comes to wearing animal prints. I think, done well, adding an animal-print element can look great - but it can be hard to find that line. Recently, I've loved tossing on this particular coat (another fluffy piece from Avec Les Filles), which is advertised as a "snow leopard" print and offers more subtle colors and spots. It's a great way for me to wear leopard without it being too in-your-face.
