Heart Print Button Down, Two Ways

Since Valentine's Day is tomorrow and this silky heart print button down is less than $20 on clearance right now, I figured it was the perfect time to share a One Item, Two Ways post with y'all! The first way I thought to style this top was layered with my favorite navy sweater! I felt so preppy in this outfit and loved every second of it! The knotted mules were a fun addition and only $7 on clearance at my local store. I picked them up at the same time as the top and couldn't wait to pair them together.

This button down is supposed to be light blue with navy hearts but it looks white in person! Occasionally I can see the light blue but just barely. What do you think? I just love layering button downs under cardigans and sweaters but had to find a way to rock this one without the layers for spring! Keep scrolling to see the second look I put together:


Funny what a simple change in color scheme can do for an item! This top screamed preppy when paired with navy and red, but a few pops of PINK and you've gone from collegiate chic to flirty and feminine! Nothing goes better with hearts than bows, so my favorite pink flats made a reappearance. I don't always match my handbag with my shoes, but to break up the monotone look on top it seemed perfect.

I even swapped out my lipstick from red to a pretty fuchsia color to tie it all together. This look is perfect for Galentine's Day brunch or even the office with slacks or a pencil skirt! The silky material of this blouse is so chic and versatile; I can't wait to find more ways to style it for you!


I have a thing for ditsy prints and old school style, so I'm super glad to have snagged this sweet top in time for Valentine's Day! Which look is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!


Classic Valentine's Makeup Look: Drugstore ONLY!

I loooove a quick and easy makeup look, even for Valentine's Day! No falsies or overpriced high end products necessary here, just tried-and-true drugstore favorites that add up to an ultra glam, long-lasting look that's perfect for day or night!

Here's what I used!

This foundation is my all time favorite of all foundations I've ever used, even the few high end ones I've tried! It's not too matte, great coverage, and long lasting. My eyeshadow look is probably one of the easiest I've ever done and yet still works for date night! I used the light grey/brown shade from the Milani palette all over, with the Revlon shadow on the main part of my lid. Then I lightly smoked it all out with the medium dark shade of the Milani palette. To finish the smokey eye effect, I buffed out that medium dark shadow on my lower lash line which really ties everything together in a more natural way--at least as natural as you can get with a smokey eye!

As for the rest of the look, I simply did my regular makeup routine with a little more emphasis than normal on my contour and highlight to boost the glamorous feel. Normally, I'd rock this look with a bold red lip but this time I was feeling like a hot pink and I'm so glad I went with something different! I used the Pixi Beauty liquid lipstick I received in a PR package a while back and I really love it! It's not too drying and lasts a long time, but it's not entirely kiss-proof, so bear that in mind!


The best thing about this makeup look--besides it being SO affordable!--is that it's completely neutral, so you can really go with any lip color you like! If you're looking to take things up a notch for night, just blend out a little more of that medium dark shade and add a touch of the black shadow (very pigmented!) into the outer corner/lower lash line to darken up the smokey effect. You'll have a sexy date night look ready in no time!

What are your Valentine's plans? I can't wait to spend the actual day with snuggles and a home-cooked meal, but Friday night we're hitting the town thanks to my sweet friend's offer to babysit! It's so nice to have just a couple hours to reconnect without the kids in tow!


Pearl Embellished Two-in-One Dress

I'll be honest, I'm not usually this dressed up for Valentine's Day. I'm more of a stay in and cook a great meal + Netflix & Chill kinda girl! BUT when I saw this dress, I just had to have it for Valentine's! I ordered mine from VICI Collection since I had some store credit there (here's the link for the dress there, still available in medium!) but Red Dress Boutique has it cheaper AND in two other colors! I'm wearing what their site calls "cream" and mine is a medium!


The cute little bow is just so perfect for Valentine's Day or holiday parties, but it is removable! I think I'll take it off next time and wear my hair up with a big statement earring! Of course a red heel was a must for the season, but without the bow you could really rock any color shoe, from nude or black to hot pink or leopard print! The options are so fun with this shift and did I mention it has pockets?! Definitely my favorite "dressy"-dress to date!

Now the question is, where should my next date night be? I need to take this beauty out for another spin!
