I think the idea of a Galentine’s Day celebration is the cutest idea ever! So fun and honestly, I always have the most fun with my girlfriends! Surprisingly, none of them are single this year, so I guess it’s not even an option, haha, but a great idea none the less! My best friend’s birthday is the day before Valentine’s Day sooo we could just combine the two? Anyway! Galentine’s Day is all about dressing up and feeling good about yourself, and if you want to wear all black, (as I usually do!) this is one holiday I don’t think anyone would mind.

As soon as I tried this top on I knew I had to have it. The shoulder cutouts are a big thing this year and I really dig that style. The tunic length with these textured leggings and pink rock stud heels screams ready for cocktails with the girls! How will you be celebrating this weekend? Don’t forget to stop by Juno, if you’re in the area, and browse their amazing selection of outfits. And when you’re done picking out something to wear this Sunday, head to their upstairs and pick out what you’ll be wearing underneath!
Aside from a romantic dinner you can also do a more casual cocktails to celebrate Valentine’s Day. In this case, a little lacy dress may be too much, so I opted for sequin track pants to keep the outfit classy while still a little casual. Side note; these track pants are SO comfortable! I bought sequin pants a few months ago at H&M and honestly never wore them because they were uncomfortable and, honestly, not flattering at all. I can’t remember why I bought them in the first place. These joggers are casual, comfortable, and so festive looking!

If you’re going to be doing something a little more casual for Valentine’s Day you might want to wear pants, as I would plan to hop from one place to another all night long, ha. I opted for my favorite skull clutch to add some of my signature edge to this outfit, which is a refreshing change from yesterday’s uber romantic look. Which one do you prefer so far? There’s one look left for my favorite kind of celebration; girls night!
Valentine’s Day brings on a mix of emotions, doesn’t it? You either love it, or you hate it. There really is no in-between. The past year or so I’ve opted out of celebrating so Matt can take Char on a special date. It means the world to both of them, hah. However, if I were going out to celebrate myself there’s a few different options for the evening; super romantic candlelit dinner, more casual cocktails, and the all time favorite Galentine’s Day! This week on the blog I’m showing you three different looks, all available at my favorite local boutique Juno, to wear if you’re celebrating one of these ways!

Nothing is more elegant and romantic than a nice little lace dress. I’m not usually swooning for romantic looks, but lace is my weakness! The piping detail on this dress adds a little bit of shape which is very flattering! A dress like this was literally made for a romantic dinner for two in a cozy little restaurant with your love.
Each outfit you’re going to see this week is straight from Juno boutique in Ocean, NJ. One of my favorite things about this store is it’s a one stop shop, especially for your Valentine’s Day needs! If you happen to visit make sure you check out “the upstairs” as it has been appropriately titled. They carry everything you might need for a fun Valentine’s Day after party from lingerie to… “accessories.”

Winter happened in one weekend here in New Jersey. In two days we got dumped on with snow complete with high winds and bitter temperature, and then it was gone. Now it’s back to a nice 40-50 degree week. This cozy coat from Sheinside is perfect for these cool, but not frigid, days we’re experiencing.

When the coat itself is worn open and untied, it can be a bit overwhelming with the oversized collar. I liked to keep it tied to add shape to my waist and not get lost in all of the fabric.
I also love having a statement coat in my closet that isn’t fur. I love my fur coats, DUH, but you have to switch it up sometimes! The red is such a stunning color and I love the way it stands out against a snowy backdrop too! Sheinside has an amazing collection of coats at such amazing prices! I’m linking to some more of my favorite statement coats below!
