Valentine’s Day: Ready to Fla-mingle

Valentine’s Day is less than a month away, so I put together a sweet treat party inspiration featuring table wear from Target.

The Pink Metal Tray, Floral Plates, Striped Napkins, and Glitter Champagne Flutes are all from Target! Everything was so colorful and fun, but also not dripping in hearts. They also have other patterns to choose from and many more decoration options! I was unable to find these pieces at target.com, but they should be with the other party supplies in your local store!

I had previously bought the paper straws and the flamingo stirrers. Drink accessories are always a great thing to have on hand. The tassel garland is also from Target’s regular party line, and I had it hanging in my dorm room. The hearts are foam stickers, and I also tried my hand at some floral arranging!

I hope this inspires your next V-day event! Whether it’s a girls night in or a flirty date, it’s sure to be sweet!

Mixing Matches

One thing I love to do with my outfits is to mix patterns that still go together. The trick is to pick a dominant pattern, like a bold stripe or floral, and pair it with a subtle print that compliments it. Here’s my take on it!

What I’m Wearing

This is one of my favorite Lilly Pulitzer skirts that I got at their Endless Summer Sale a couple years ago. It is so colorful and goes with anything!

The shirt is from J. Crew and my watch is from Kate Spade

Make a Statement

I don’t usually wear a lot of jewelry so if there’s one thing I love it’s a statement piece. One really great looking piece is, in my opinion, much more elegant and eye-catching than loading on a ton of bling.

I had been looking at a particular necklace from BaubleBar for-EVER, but I wasn’t sure if it was worth it’s original price. I found it the other day for only $17 so I had to get it! Unfortunately since it was on sale, it is no longer on the website but you can find similar necklaces at other stores.

This was my first Bauble Bar purchase (even though I’ve wanted everything on the site for a while!) so they sent my bauble in really cute packaging with a handwritten note!

They even included a free gift, Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish in Dive In.

I paired this necklace with a neutral outfit so it wouldn’t be overwhelming.

I also love statement earrings! Most of the time I just wear them on their own, especially if they are as big as the ones I received as a free gift from Lilly Pulitzer.

I haven’t worn these out yet because they are definitely a statement, and they’re a little heavy so I wouldn’t want to wear them for too long. Hopefully my boyfriend will take me to a nice dinner soon 🙂

Sorry for all the selfies, the worst part of being a fashion blogger is when no one is around to take your picture!
