Vintage sequin top from Electric Lady Vintage

Valentines Day is on Sunday.  Our plans are a kids birthday party so no date night for us.  Truthfully, we don’t really do the Valentine Date night out thing.  We usually spend the night in, order food and just relax.  I’m sure this will be our Saturday night plans.  However, I always love a good date night.  It’s been a while since we’ve had a night out with just the two of us, so we’ve set that as a goal for this month.  My date night wardrobe has dwindled down over the years.  Sexy dresses and heels are impractical for me and honestly, not how I feel my most beautiful.  I’m not opposed to a bit of sparkle so this vintage top {with a Woodwards label} is a great piece to keep on hand.  Flats and jeans can absolutely be sexy.  When I’m comfortable and confident in what I’m wearing, that is when I feel sexy. I would complete this outfit with my leather jacket and a scarf.

Happy Valentine’s Day! xo

 

Fave 5 Chic Makers

Lately, I’ve been keeping my wardrobe pretty classic.  Lots of black and white, jeans and tees, and of course cozy lounge wear at home.  Even the most basic of wardrobes can easily be elevated with the right pieces stocked in your closet.   My fave five chic makers are…
1) Sequins.  Whether for day or night, sequins are the easiest way to kick an outfit up a notch.   My go-to’s are either a sequin top or clutch.  Even a pair of jeans look amazing when paired with some sparkle.
2) Statement Necklaces.  I keep a bunch of these on hand for a quick style fix.  They don’t need to be spendy.  Cheap and cheerful can do the trick too.
3) Leopard Print.  You can wear a little or a lot.  It’s always chic and can add some real personality to basic black.
4) A Hat.  A beautiful wide brimmed hat has an effortless cool girl vibe.  Choose a neutral colour so you can wear one hat with several looks.   This is currently on my own shopping list.
5) A Cape.  My plaid cape is one of my favorite things in my closet.  It layers beautifully over jeans and dresses plus it feels like you’re wrapping yourself in a warm blanket…a stylish blanket of course.
