Valentine’s Day Lookbook Begins! with 522 Envy

Happy Sunday Everyone!  Who said Valentine’s Day only has to be for couples? Here’s a special wish for everything and everyone special in my life who has showered me with love, trust, kindness, patience, admiration, and never-ending support.  I am in love with the bond of friendship and this Valentine’s Day month, I am going to share this love in all the ways I can, whether it’s giving back to the community, the world, my friends, my family… or simply making one person smile.  Since February is right around the corner, let the Valentine’s Day celebration begin on my blog!

To start off my Valentine’s Day celebration, I have collaborated with shop 522 Envy, located in Chicago, IL, to bring you this fun Valentine’s Day look!  First of all, I love the material of the dress and how soft it is! The shade of red is so bold and so bright, it gives off such happy vibes. Here’s the look I put together…



I see a beautiful dress and bold accessories as a woman’s armor.

// Outfit Details //  Dress: (c/o) shop it here  |  Tights: Macy’s  |  Boots: Stuart Weitzman  |  Scarf:  Macy’s  |  Watch: Kate Spade New York  |  Bead Bracelet: The Amna Ali (this bracelet design is coming soon!)  |  Bag: Michael Kors  |  Necklace: Swarovski

This whole look I put together with this dress I just love! I paired it with some of my favorite pieces from my closet. I’ve been trying to find a reason to wear my red bag and it just looked so perfect with this dress, along with my sequence trim scarf. It’s way too cold in Chicago to go out with bare legs (and you can’t see it well in this picture! I’m sorry!) but I wore sheer tights under this dress and knee-high boots. I aimed for a flirty but cute, comfortable Valentine’s Day look!

What are your plans this coming Valentine’s Day? Any ideas yet?! Comment below and share! I’d love to hear from you, always!

with love,
