One of the most romantic days of the year is right around the corner! I love Valentine’s Day, because it’s the perfect occasion to get glam, go out, and show your loved one just how much you truly love them. This year, I wanted to have a couple of options for Valentine's Day, so I got three different dresses from Lulu's. Lulu's is the perfect place to shop for Valentine's, they have so many options for everyone. If you want something that hugs your curves in all the right places, Lulu's is the place. If you want something a little more chic and laid back, Lulu's won't disappoint and if you want something flirty yet ladylike Lulu's has that too! One of the reasons why I love them so much is because there are so many options, not just for Valentine’s Day, but for any special occasion. I visit their site when I have a fancy dinner to go to, an anniversary to celebrate with my fiancé, or simply just to treat myself. 

I fell absolutely head over heels for these dresses, the first one caught my eye because of the back opening. I think it’s absolutely stunning when a woman shows her back, it’s elegant, feminine and sexy. Usually, red is the choice of color for V-Day, but this year, I wanted to try burgundy instead. Next, red is usually my go-to shade for Valentine's Day but this time I thought I'd find a flirty LBD. The embroidery on this dress was gorgeous. It's simple, yet striking. Perfect for a Valentine's or "galentine's" (if you will) dinner with girlfriends. Velvet was another texture that I wanted to try this year. I loved this dress because it was classy yet sexy and oh so soft. I paired it with my faux fur coat to mix textures and for a glamorous monochromatic look. 

Just because it's Valentine's Day, it doesn't mean that you have to go all out. Don't stress! Remember to show your loved one how much you love them with a simple gesture. A text that says 'have a nice day,'  a handwritten card, or a simple 'good morning, handsome' can mean the absolute world to them. It's always the little things that count. I hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day! 

What type of looks do you gravitate towards on the most romantic day of the year?

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of saying that fashion is all about having the freedom to express yourself. Whether you’re matching your outfit palette to your mood, your personal inspo, or your creativity, there’s always something in your outfit that will resemble you

Now, I’m no fashion designer, but I know I’m not the only one that walks into a store sometimes and says, “I wish this dress was in this color” or “I wish this top were a dress instead!” When this happens to me, I tell myself that there's nothing stopping me from messing around with what I already have in my closet. That's exactly what I did with this outfit. Looks like a dress off the rack, right? It's not! 

I loved the vibrant blue color of this strapless dress, it's perfect for a night out with my girlfriends, but on this specific day, I wanted something a little more ladylike. White contrasts beautifully with this blue, so I put on my white lace top and voilà, a dress was made! Everything about this dress made me smile, the way the colors complimented each other and the beautiful texture of lace was absolutely perfect. I paired this little creation of mine with a strappy sandal, my Furla purse, and some cute white sunnies. 

What are your favorite ways to experiment with your wardrobe?

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

When it comes to feeling sexy and bold, red is the color that always pops into mind. Yeah, there are other colors that can make me feel sexy, but to be honest, nothing makes me feel as sensual and feminine the way red does. Pair the color red with some leather and lace and now we’re talking. 

My fiancé and I decided to have date night a couple of nights ago and I wanted to wear something bold and sultry, so I went for this body suit lace top that is absolutely gorgeous. I’m a fan of body suits because they’re perfect for layering and they hug your body in all the right places. I fell completely head over heels with the lace detail and the back straps, so I decided to pair it with these red leather pants, nude pumps, my Valentino bag and to add a little more fierceness, I went with my vintage faux fur coat. 

One of the reasons why I love fashion so much, is because wearing a specific clothing item or a bold color, can instantly lift your mood! If you're not feeling sexy, reach for that lace-y dress in your closet, or your favorite pair of pumps! I'm absolutely sure that you'll feel better instantly. 

What helps you feel sexy?

When it comes to skincare, I'm always up for trying the latest and greatest products, but usually they don't stand the test of time. Some products however, I just keep coming back to, time and time again. One of those is Neutrogena's Cleansing Towlette's. I've tried just about every makeup remover wipe on the market and these babies are THE best. Whether I'm wearing light, natural weekend makeup or heavy photoshoot "glam", they take it all off with ease and leave my skin feeling silky smooth. So I thought, why not see what other goodies Neutrogena has in store? That's when I decided to give my nighttime routine a little boost and reboot!

 I started with my tried and true makeup remover wipes then moved on to phase two with one of their latest and greatest products the Deep Clean Purifying Cleanser. It works as a cleanser or a mask, so depending on how much love my skin needs, I can use it either way. Next, I apply the Hydro Boost Multivitamin Booster. It's a lightweight serum that contains vitamin E and purified hyaluronic acid and it helps your skin to absorb moisture faster so that once you add in your go-to night cream, your skin soaks up all the goodness with ease. My new night cream of choice? Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Water Gel, of course! It's heavy enough to feel like a moisture blanket on my face but light enough that it won't clog my pores - yes, I'm totally obsessed! These 4 products will be perfect for getting my skin looking it's best for Valentine's Day. 

Sometimes stepping out of your comfort zone to try new products is a good thing! Thankfully at Rite Aid, I can pick up all of my favorite beauty products and more. Also, Neutrogena Skin Care will be Buy 1, Get 1 50% off during the weeks of 2/4, 2/18 and 2/25. During the week of 2/4 when you use your Rite Aid Wellness+ Card, for every $40 you spend, you will receive $15 in Bonus Cash towards your next visit.
