One of the biggest things I tell clients is to shop your closet first! I wanted to create a few cute Valentine’s Day looks and show you how you can style one piece to create multiple outfits.
In my opinion, that is the sign of a great piece of clothing when it can be mixed and matched to create so many different outfits. This way you can wear the piece over and over and never get bored. You can tailor the outfit for the occasion or just for your general mood that day.
Do you have the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit already in your closet?
An easy way to make anything more festive for Valentine’s Day is just add a pop of red or pink. Remember accessories are such an easy way to change an outfit without spending any money!
One easy way to pack light is to pack some staple pieces and then pack accessories to change up the looks. This is a perfect example of a black faux leather moto jacket that can be dressed up with a skirt or worn over a dress. Or you can wear it with jeans or leggings.
You can really change the look of the outfit just by changing the scarf and earrings. Scarves and earrings don’t take up much room in a suitcase and can really help you create so many more outfit combinations! So get creative and have fun with your wardrobe!
I love adding accessories to really elevate an outfit. I have even been known on more than one occasion to create a whole outfit starting with an accessory like a scarf, necklace or earrings. I found this beautiful pink and blue Ikat scarf at the local consignment shop, My Secret Closet, and I just had to get it. That is one thing I love about Consignment and thrift shops is you never know what you might find. It is kind of like a scavenger hunt.
Once I got home I realized that I am drawn to this color palette quite a bit. This art by Jenna Webb Art has similar colors to the outfit and I have always loved it. I also have photos of bright pink flowers and pictures of the Amalfi Coast with all the blues and pinks. I Iove just about any shade of blue and pairing a hot pink with it just gives it that extra pop!
There are so many great sources of color inspiration around us. What colors are you constantly drawn to? I bet if you look around in your home or closet you will see some color themes!
