With Valentine's coming up quickly here are some outfits that will take you from a Galentine Brunch to a Fancy Dinner and everything in between. Hopefully you can take some inspiration from these outfits!
The first look I have is the most casual of them all, and they feature a pair of pink leopard jeans I picked up from Forever21 a few years ago. To make sure they stay the centre of attention I paired it with a simple cream ribbed long sleeve shirt. This one has open cut bell sleeves but I prefer to cuff them at a 3/4 length. I have these beige high tops from Old Navy which keep with the casual vibe.
For this look I LOVED the detailing in the lace overlay of this off the shoulder blush top. I thought it would look really cute with a pair of lighter wash jeans and to elevate the look, I put on a pair of BCBGirls cream pointed heels. The point helps to elongate my legs and I find the cream a nice balance to the top.
Now we are branching into a look that borders a casual outing and perhaps getting a drink with someone. I picked up this Lucky Brand black velvet bodysuit at a local thrift shop a couple months ago for $4! I wanted it to pair it with a dark wash of jeans, these are the curvy jeggings from Bluenotes which don't gap at the back for me which is great. A classic black strap sandal heel finishing this look but you can totally wear a pop of colour if you don't want a dark look.
This is a softer look that has a really girly vibe to me. I love the look of crisp white pants and the soft peachy pink blouse. I didn't originally have a belt with this look but I find with tucked in tops, a belt just helps to pull it all together so I had this patent nude belt from Target and wrapped it up with some strappy white sandals from Town Shoes. I have to admit these shoes were from my grade 8 graduation!
This next outfit is a fun one for the spring/summer and that early transition to fall when it's still super warm in September. I love the paperbag waist and pleating to these Zara pants and they pair well with cream, white tops and this floral tee from Garage. The tones match beautifully and everyone enjoys flowers! I have these tie up flats that I picked up from Giant Tiger over a year ago for under $20. I don't wear them as much as I'd like because it can be hard to balance out the tied look with pants but they matched well with some of the details in the shirt.
This is not an outfit that I ever thought I'd wear as it is literally head to toe pink, granted its more blush than in-your-face-pink, but I always tell people I'm not big on wearing pink. This lookbook showed me just how much pink I own (I had more but didn't want to over do it). The J. Crew flats are a pinky nude and the monochromatic vibe of this outfit surprised me - I really enjoyed it! These Calvin Klein pants aren't a leopard print, but if you look closely they kind of remind me of a giraffe - which I know sounds strange but it's not a regular print. They have a great cut and aren't too long for my height.
I wore this dress out the other night when I went to see Come From Away, with some tights and boots because it was in the middle of a snow storm and I got several compliments on it! I confess, I've owned this dress for probably almost a decade, my mum gave it to me years ago, and I've NEVER worn it. I never thought it fit nice or some nonsense like that but I really enjoyed wearing it. It's super comfy and if you're not suffering from a snow storm, pairing it with some shiny booties really ties the look together. As with the previous black outfit feel free to choose another colour shoe (be it red or pink) to make it more "lovey" if you'd like.
This dress is one of my favourites to wear when I'm going out for a nice dinner or evening as it's just super comfy and stretchy. Animal print is all over the runway this season so not only is it comfortable, it's on trend too. I choose to belt it because it helps keep the waistline on my actual waist as it is ever to slightly big. I've paired this dress with many heels but I thought that I'd try something new and wear my Timberlands. I am absolutely obsessed with these boots and love the way they look with the dress as they edge it up.
So that is the lookbook! For more angles of the looks you can check out the video down below. Be sure to subscribe if you haven't already - it really does help me out!
