If you’ve been reading my blog with any kind of regularity, you know one of my latest obsessions is the midi skirt. It’s fun, flirty, and feminine, plus you can style it for just about any occasion. I’m always looking out for chances to add to my collection — sorry Peter, I know my closet is already bursting at the seams — so Valentine’s Day was a great excuse to pick up this beautiful magenta number.
The skirt is not overtly Valentine-y. You don’t want to overdo the pinks and reds just because it’s February 14th. But I paired it with a white and black polka dot top and some pink lipstick to really make the look pop.
Sweater: White House Black Market (on sale!) | Skirt: Express | Bracelets: eff.Y.bee c/o | Watch: Michael Kors (loving this) | Necklace: White House Black Market (similar) | Ring: Forever 21 (almost exact) | Clutch: GiGi New York | Shoes: Ivanka Trump (love these)
And as if I needed an excuse to play with some fresh blooms … Peter got me these to shoot with because he’s the best boyfriend ever and knows how much I love flowers. Such a good Valentine.
But you don’t have to stress about what to wear for your day with your bae. Take something you already love and try pairing it with a new, fun, girly color. You’ll be comfortable, and in the spirit!
Boyfriend or not though, every girl deserves some arm candy this time of year. And what better candy than this fabulous bliss stack from eff.Y.bee?! I teamed up with the “follow your bliss” team to build my very own “Elena Bliss Stack” (eeeek! how cool!) in the spirit of Valentines Day, and now you have a chance to win one!
