My Style: Roses are Red

Today's Look:  is all about creating a Valentine's Day outfit that is worthy of Blair from Gossip Girl.  Being a strong, fearless trendsetter, Blair was always my favorite character.  What better way to find fashion inspiration than the fictional OG of fashion herself.  To start the look off, I first chose the sleek, leatherette skater skirt and sophisticated black blouse.  I always love mixing edgy pieces with classic ones.  Next, I chose opaque black tights and cut-out ankle booties.  Not quite done with winter, the Arizona breeze still has a certain bitter chill in it.  To stay warm, while fabulous, I chose a plaid peacoat that brings together burgundy, black, and red.  Finishing off the look, I wore a red and gold detailed purse, a gold watch, two rings, and gold stud earrings.  Now, all I need is a Valentine's date. . . Harry Styles, call me ;)

Fashion Tip:  For a chic and cozy Valentine's Day outfit, burgundy is a great way to dress in the spirit of the holiday while not being over-the-top.
