Last minute outfit ideas for Valentine’s day

Valentine's day1

I have been quite occupied the last two week, The photos were actually taken during the course of last week. Initial I wanted to do a not last minute valentine’s day post, unfortunately, I didn’t really have time to do that. So this post ended up to be very last minute. Anyway, many girls are going for the sassy vibe this special day,  but I decide to go sweet all the way.  After all, I don’t plan to go out this year, it’s -30 degrees, luck for you who live near the tropics! Here’s a few indoor outfit ideas for those of you who aren’e prepared yet. Although many items here are neither not available or out of stock, I figure the texture combination may give you an idea. Everybody has a little black dress and a white sweater. Sometimes it all comes down to the accessories, the combination of textures and colors can take what’s already in your wardrobe to the next level.

A lovely little black dress saves you for any special occasions or single parties you’ve planed this valentines’s day. I Jazzed it up with a statement necklace and a bright red belt. Dress from Club Monaco.  Belt from Salvatore Ferragamo, necklace from Forever 21

This combination of simple white sweater and textured faux fur scarf makes your look a little dressier but not trying to hard. Pair it with a simple trousers or jeans, maybe skirt too; Anything really!

This outfit might not look too appealing on the picture, but when you wear it , it’s just… cute! Stars and bow together, what can be more girly than that?

I was wearing this outfit to IKEA, and when I passed by the mirror, I realized: “Hey, it doesn’t look so bad.” When I got home, it was just at the right time where sun sets; the best portrait timing. So, here we go, a few pictures of what I wore to IKEA. This Larry Levine wool coat is really one of my best purchase, I brought it a year back in New York and have been loving it since, it is just so versatile and beautiful. Maybe not that warm though, but worth the cold. Ripped boyfriend jeans from American Eagle and J.Crew sweater are easy to pull off. The contrast of the Aldo blue bag and the red coat instantly brighten up the dullness of the casual pairing. the fur scarf was from my mom, confession: it is real fur, which I do not encourage in anyway! All my other fur items are fake and no one could tell the difference, so much cheaper for the same amount of chic.

Taking a break from the long busy week, me and a few friends went all the way to Ottawa for… you won’t believe this. Popeye fried chicken! Well, we just needed some fresh air. Anyway, the outfit was nothing out of the ordinary, casual and affordable involving a few of my most worn items this season. The combination of dark grey turtle neck sweater and faux-leather pants along with the pointy booties made my look a little secret agentish; so I wore the long sloppy Tommy Hifiger cardigan and my grey Zara wool coat to make it more fun. The blue little Aldo bag was very cheap, I got it on sale for 25$ and yet, it has been my most complimented item in the closet. The size and the color were just right. Although I did the most stupid thing that a fashion blogger could EVER do, which is forgetting my camera, the photos turned out okay. With a little help of the trusty Photoshop, hopefully, they won’t hurt your eyes.
