I hope everyone is having a great Monday!

Starting this week out with our last Valentine’s themed post. In addition to a dressier outfit, you all requested a more casual Valentine’s look. Any holiday, but this one especially, is a good reason to dress up a bit more than usual because you’re typically going out with your significant other or friends. Or, maybe you’re staying home but want to look extra good for that special someone 😉. Either way, I’m with you guys as I too like to keep things pretty casual.

Although it doesn’t have the stereotypical pink or red, this outfit is still perfect for the Holiday. The statement sleeves on this top from Nordstrom add a trendy, feminine touch while the black and white stripes give it an overall classic look. This top does also come in pink and white stripes for those looking for that traditional Valentine’s color! It’s priced at $45 and can easily be worn into spring.  It runs a little big so definitely size down one size! The body has an overall oversized fit and is a little cropped. It came down just a little past the waistline of my mid-rise jeans.

In my opinion, pairing this top with white pants is what makes this look so perfect for Valentine’s. It gives it an all-around feminine look that would be perfect to wear throughout the spring as well. I accessorized this outfit with these tassel earrings from SugarFix that I’m already planning on packing on our trip to Florida in March. Side note about tassel earrings. On the surface, these earrings can be very preppy looking, which isn’t my style. However, paired with a more neutral outfit like this one, you can make them look more chic and less preppy. I’m also wearing my new tan booties, which are actually just a tan version of the black booties you see in so many of my photos!

If you’re looking for more Valentine’s inspiration, I wrote a post on dressy Valentine’s outfits here or gift ideas for him or her here. I’ve consolidated all of my Valentine’s posts in a new category at the top of the page for easy navigating!

Also, it’s super fun that I steamed this top before this shoot then it instantly was wrinkled by the wind. Love winter 😒

How was your weekend? This past Saturday, Kev and I went downtown to explore the pre-Super Bowl festivities. They started this past weekend and go until this coming Sunday (the Super Bowl). We had a lot of fun exploring everything although it was SUPER cold and every restaurant was super crowded! Yesterday we went out to lunch and then Kevin proceeded to beat me at Yahtzee 5 times while we watched Netflix lol!

Stay tuned this week for my first instagram roundup and and a post on my fitness tips and tricks!

A Dressy Valentine’s Look

Happy Wednesday Everyone! We managed to survive the blizzard up here on Monday! It took my sister over 2 hours to get home from her work downtown. A commute that usually takes under 45 minutes. Needless to say, I’m done with snow for the year. It’s funny, mid-August I always crave colder weather and “can’t stand” warm weather. Then mid-January I start really disliking the cold/wet weather and need warm weather. Anyone else like this? Grass is always greener I guess!

Today I’m sharing my first Valentine’s look for the upcoming holiday. As I said before, Valentine’s doesn’t have to be a holiday reserved for those with a significant other. Me-dates and Galentine’s are becoming increasingly popular and for good reason! It’s fun just to have a night to pamper yourself or a care-free night out with your girls! In a recent Instagram poll, you all voted yes for both a dressy and casual Valentine’s look. And, if you haven’t noticed, I really take your input into consideration when planning posts because as much as this blog is a creative outlet for me, it’s written for you! So, again, if you ever want to see content please don’t hesitate to message me on social media or at lomeyerblog@gmail.com (or follow me on the ‘gram & answer one of my many polls lol)!

The style of this Solutions Original dress from Nordstrom Rack is perfect for Valentine’s because it’s both dressy and comfortable. It’s not overly “sexy” so could be worn with your significant other or out with the girls! The tiered sleeves add a nice feminine flair while the pastel pink color is right on point for Valentine’s day. As fate would have it, this exact dress sold out in the time we had this shoot, and I wrote this post 😒 BUT this style and color are super popular right now. So, I’ve linked a ton of similar dresses in the “shop the post” widgets. Such as this dress that’s almost identical (and less expensive!), or this one that’s the same style only in red (and comes in petite sizes too!).

Being that we are nearing a transition season, I’ve selected dresses that will have a lightweight feel so you can wear them in warmer weather. In addition to being lightweight, most of these colors will also work well for both the holiday and springtime. Pastel colors as well as tiered fabrics (like these sleeves) are very on trend for spring so buying anything with either is a safe bet!

When styling this type of dress for V-Day, feel free to change up the accessories you wear to fit with your plans!  If you’re doing a date day, consider wearing tall boots and studded earrings with a lightweight jacket and cross body bag. If you’re going on a night out, take out your favorite pair of nude or blush heels, a clutch or cross body and your favorite hoops.

What are your plans for Valentine’s? Kev and I usually cook a more extravagant meal (one year he made stuffed duck!) or have a date-day. If you couldn’t tell by now, we’re not much for staying out late anymore 😋!

On Friday, I’ll be sharing a his & her gift guide for Valentine’s with items all under $50! Stay tuned!

Black Lace & Bell Sleeves

Happy Fri-YAY everyone!

First let me start off by saying THANK YOU to everyone who reached out after reading Monday’s post. Your comments, messages and emails mean SO much to me. It’s never easy to put yourself out there for the public to see. And your support makes it all worth it. I wrote that post to showcase my personal growth in 2017, not to complain or go on about hardships I faced earlier in the year. 2017 taught me the importance of critical self-reflection, which I think is a valuable life-lesson!

Now, let’s get back to fashion and beauty!

First up – Site updates! As promised, I updated some things on my site and more are yet to come next week. The “Holiday Shop & Sales” tab is no longer with us (RIP ’till November!). If you look at the top bar you’ll see there’s a “Shop” section. If you hover over that, you have options to check out my Instagram outfits as well as my product recommendations under $50 and under $100. In the bar on the right side of your page (under the little bubble with my photo) you’ll see “Currently Obsessed” and “Beauty Obsessions”. These are things I currently covet, things you guys tell me you love the most or things I wish I had in fashion and beauty. You can simply click the next arrow to browse through those selections. The shop tab as well as these sidebar items will be updated every Monday. I’ve gone through them this week, weeded out things I’m no longer feelin’ or things that are out of stock. I’ll be doing that every Monday to ensure you’re all kept up to date!

Second – I took an Instagram poll this week and so many of you requested outfit ideas for Valentine’s next month (if you’re not following me, get on it! I regularly take polls to see what you want to read about!). If you’re like Kevin and me, Valentine’s is a more low-key affair usually accompanied by a beer (or two) and a nice meal in. We’re not one for braving the crowds on holidays! However, I know so many of you are! Most of you requested posts on both dressy and casual V-day outfits as well as gift ideas so I’ll be incorporating those in over the next few weeks!

And, let’s remember, you don’t need a significant other to have a great V-day. One of the best V-day’s I had was when I was studying abroad in England. My British flatmates and I drank wine, played games and talked all night. It’s really a night I’ll never forget! So if you don’t have a significant other, don’t let that stop you! Schedule something with your best girl or guy-friends and wear a cute outfit anyway!

Forever 21 Black Lace Top (Similar Option 1; Similar Option 2) | Forever 21 Bralette | H&M Skirt | Booties (sold out – similar here) | Express Bag | Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in “Ashton”

Truth be told, this post was scheduled for next week. But, this top is selling out so quickly I felt compelled to move a few things around! But, I’m not complaining. Even choosing photos to edit for this post got me excited about it – LOL. This top is just that good!

I think it goes without saying that this top is the perfect date night/going out top. It’s sheer lace with bell sleeves so is very feminine. But, the black color gives it a certain edge that other tops like it don’t have. So, it’s truly the perfect mix of feminine and edgy. Since it is sheer, you do have to wear a bralette underneath. Or, don’t if you’re feeling particularly risky 😉! It fits true to size and hits me right above the belly button. Even though it’s from Forever 21, I was very impressed by the quality!

For this ‘fit, I went for a monochromatic look and styled it with a black faux leather skirt and black booties. I feel the all-black really rounds out the edgy look. But, it would also look good with a regular pair of jeans and over-the-knee boots. It’s definitely a top that makes you feel instantly confident when you put it on!

Side note – I also found this top in white, which would be would be perfect for Valentine’s. There’s something about white, pink and red that just epitomizes Valentine’s for me. However, don’t worry! I do have another “dressy” Valentine’s outfit lined up for you all just consider this idea an added bonus 😋

This exact top is selling out quickly so I’ve included similar ones linked above and in the click-through widget. If you’re thinking about getting it, I would obviously say DO IT! I’m literally in love with it! But, moreover, don’t hesitate because it is going super quickly!

I hope you all have a great weekend! It’s my nephew’s 7th birthday this weekend (can’t believe it 😭!) so my sister and I are surprising him at school today. We’re going to read to his 1st grade class then have lunch with him. I know he’s going to be SO excited so I can’t wait to see him!

Have a great weekend everyone!

XOXO
