Yes, it’s that time of year: when teddy bears flood the isles, roses multiply by the minute, and chocolate cravings become harder to avoid.
When Valentine’s Day comes around, I love to feel flirty and girly and this look did just that. I felt it was most appropriate for the romantic holiday. There is nothing wrong with being extra, extra feminine.
I’m so happy Valentine’s Day is on a Saturday. It gives you time to brunch, relax, and/or go out at night with the girls or your man. There are so many things to do and so many places to eat on Valentine’s Day, but there is nothing wrong with staying home with your man or girls and a batch of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. So whether you’re going to watch the scandalous Fifty Shades of Grey or replays of the classic The Notebook at home, I hope you all have a Happy Valentine’s Day full of roses and love.

Trendilicios by Claudia x Salty & Chic by Carolina
I recently collaborated with local boutique owner and stylist Claudia Alvarez who I have known and loved for a while. Her boutique Trendilicious has such a wide variety of clothing, it’s almost impossible to leave the store empty handed. Whether you’re looking for a casual tee or a formal dress, she has it all.
Together Claudia and I (C Squared) put together several looks that you have seen in some of my previous posts such as: Culture & Co-Ordinates, Stripes & Stuff, and A Bright Fall. We incorporated both the season’s latest trends and my personal style.
This outfit, I feel, is a good representation of myself: flirty and classy, but stilly edgy. Keeping with the season’s trends, we paired a skater skirt with leather seems and a leather embroided top. Leather is a staple fall trend that goes with almost anything if not everything. The leather accents on both the skirt and the top add a toughness to the outfit; however, it still remains delicate. With outfits like this one, balance is key. I paired the look with pointed toe flats and a felt hat to add a classy Parisian look. If I wanted to lean more towards the edgy side, I could have worn some leather boots or booties.
