Valentine’s day is tomorrow, and I am always finding myself looking last minute for outfits! So I decided to make a lookbook with outfit ideas and themes for those of you who do the same.
This first outfit is great for a during the day look that emphasizes pink for V-Day! I love color blocking, especially with blush pink, so I had fun with this outfit. Even though it is still pretty cold in Florence, this was comfortable and easy because of the layering. The super versatile coat is from Zara, which has become my go-to shopping place for everything warm while I’ve been here. My skirt has been a favorite piece for a few years, and was from PacSun, but I have seen many different places that have similar ones. And finally, the fun blouse is from Beehive, which is literally my favorite place to shop in Austin and Fort Worth.
Finally, the purse! My crossbody is from Tory Burch (thanks aunt Jaci and uncle Jim!) but I gave it a fun twist with the strap. It is a sort of copycat of Fendi’s fun purse straps, but was actually super cheap from the local leather market here in Florence.
The second look is a great night out look! I’m all about neutrals these days, and next up is grey. I found this amazing fur vest in one of the local stores here, where you can find anything fur and anything leather you dream of. There are major sales that happen here twice a year, and we came during one of them so we had to take advantage! My shirt, and pants, not so surprisingly, are from Zara as well! I really love the dark outfit with a dramatic red lip for a night look, especially with the red in the pants. It’s also an easy transition from a day outfit like the one above. My two favorite red lips are Nars lip pencil (the one I wore here) and Mac’s ‘Russian Red’.
For a really girly, delicate look, I always recommend lace! This pretty romper is from Free People a few years ago, but they always have boho outfits that are very similar. Accessories are a great addition to a white piece, like fun rings or colorful necklaces! I also love a textured/messy half up half down hair style to contrast the elegance of an all white outfit.
Finally, a look that can be worn day or night, and that is classic with a little edge! I found this blouse in a local store for so cheap, and thought it was a little too business-casual, so I wore black under it to spice it up a little bit. I’m always a fan of a good all black or white and black outfit, and a pop of color on the lips to finish it off. The little bit of lace on the blouse also gives it a little something! Pants and shoes are from Zara, duh.
