Happy snow day my loves!
Since tomorrow is Valentine's Day I thought I'd share a cute outfit you could wear to work. While some people may not celebrate V-day I personally look forward to it every year! I'm a hopeless romantic so I always come up with something thoughtful for my hubby and I to do. Last year I booked us a relaxing couples massage from Groupon.com and made dinner reservations at Bobby Van's for some amazing steak. This year I bought him two tickets to see the Chicago Bulls play the Knicks at Madison Square Garden (he's a big Bulls fan). I'm not sure what we'll do as an activity because of the weather but I'm thinking breakfast in bed and a romantic bubble bath!
Cardigan: Forever 21 (similar here)
Skirt: Zara (similar here)
Blazer: Forever 21
Necklaces/Rings: Forever 21
Shoes: Bakers (similar here)
Clutch: Old Navy
Lipstick: Wet n Wild in V.I.Pink
Repurposing your wardrobe is a great way to create a ton of different looks without spending any money. For example, my top is actually a cardigan that I purchased from Forever 21 last year. Most cardigans can double as tops, just be sure to use double sided tape if you see gaps between the buttons.
If you don't have anything with hearts you can add small details to get the same effect. The heart shaped pin on my blazer is actually an earring. You could also convert a necklace into a bracelet and use a ring as a charm on your necklace (the possibilities are endless).
I added some festive colors to my look by pairing my cardigan and pleated skirt with pink shoes & red blazer. If you don't have colorful shoes or blazers you can incorporate a red/pink lipstick or colorful bag/belt/scarf.
The thing I love most about this outfit is that you can switch up the look by making small alterations. If you're cold you can keep the blazer on, take it off if you get hot or wear it draped over your shoulders (like a cape) for a completely different look.
