"THE LOOK OF LOVE" LOOK #4, KEEP IT SIMPLE ...

Happy Valentine's Day! So a lot of us wherever we may be, have been hammered by Mother Nature this season. I'm surely Florida bound in my older years. But as a result you might be thinking of a more practical V Day date night look. Thus the base of this look which consists of black Nicki Minaj Solid Leggings from the Kmart collection. I particularly like these leggings because they come in a variety of colors but they are solid and not sheer so nothing is showing that you don't want to be shown. You don't have to feel pressured to wear a long top as a cover-up. And they have elastic panel insets on each side which provides extra give for them hips. The top is just a black sheer v-neck with 3/4 length sleeves previously purchased from Lulu*s. The shoes are barely visible so I won't even bother to mention. I most wanted to showcase what you can do to otherwise dress up a mundane look. So I dug into my closet for a few extras. You can do the same.
I first paired with a previously purchased blazer with a bit of bling on the shoulders. The blazer has a clasp which creates a more tapered look and cinches the waist. Way to flatter and a blazer is just a great layering piece. For the second shot, I just wanted a pop of color so I paired with a coral necklace now at Target and a previously purchased yellow leather cropped blazer and a clutch previously purchased from last year's Prabal Gurung for Target collection. And lastly, I was thinking warmth and texture. Although not terribly visible, in the last shot I layered a black faux fur button-up vest over the top. This is a never been worn piece from the Target/Neiman Marcus Holiday collection from like two years ago. The life of a shopaholic but that's a whole other post. The shoulders of this vest are FAB. It's soft and buttery. I couldn't stop cuddling myself. I can't believe I've not yet worn. And btw, is it just me or do you notice a trend? I sure do love Target it seems. Anyway, and there you have it. Keep it simple …
