Hope you all had a fantastic Valentine’s Day weekend!! I had a blast celebrating with the ladies, decorating way too many cupcakes and putting up a handful of heart decorations and red fringe banners all over a friend’s place. Who said anything about needing a significant other to enjoy this holiday? ;)
Instead of going ultra girly for the day before Valentine’s Day (at work), I ended up wearing the outfit below. I know, I know. It’s quite a far cry from the handful of pink and red I was originally planning on wearing. I was having one of those days where I couldn’t bring myself to get dolled up. I was running late for work after staying up super late baking triple chocolate brownies for my team and writing Valentine’s Day cards that I didn’t have enough time to put together a frillier outfit.
grey sweater: H&M
plaid button down: c/o Aeropostale (similar)
dress pant yoga pants: Betabrand
Freebird boots: c/o Zappos
conversation heart pins: Emerging Thoughts (exact)
trifold sidekick clutch: BEVEE (borrowed, exact)
These Danny Brito conversation heart pins and the BEVEE clutch were as girly as this outfit was going to get! Everyone seemed to get a nice kick out of the cynical nature of these pins. From far away, someone would say, “Aww, what cute pins!” and as they came closer and read them, they’d laugh about how unexpected the attitude of the messages are. I’m a fan! Can’t wait to try to figure out how to accessorize non-Valentine’s Day week outfits with these babies!
So I mentioned the BEVEE trifold sidekick earlier last week in the Valentine’s Day gift guide
and am super stoked for the next few weeks because I got to borrow one to style! For the rest of the month, I’ll be showing you different ways to style this bag. It’s such an amazing piece because of the versatility. On this particular day, I detatched the cross-body strap and toted it around as a clutch for some last minute weekend errands. Perfect way to make this somewhat tomboy outfit girlier, am I right?
Hope you’re all having a fab Monday!
