Cute Couple Looks

Date#1.  Most laid-back dinner date! Invite your love to help  you cook. Hang out in your kitchen. Open a bottle of wine, delegate tasks like chopping or peeling and just enjoy one another's company.

Date #3.  Date in Paris. Of course it has to be on my list! There is no other city as magical as Paris on Valentine's Day.  One of the best "Valentine's Dates" I have ever been too.

The Scoop on Black, Weekly Outfit Planner and Brand Love: Banana Republic

Finally, all-black outfit. A low-maintenance looking in stress-free style. Of course it would not be me if I did not bring one item that's foxy- even if it's not very practical; DSW necklace that I got a year ago for thirty two bucks. The truth is a standout accessory- like a big statement necklace or a great belt, scarf- can make a simple outfit sublime. I guess the only downfall of the all-black, wool and knit attire is the dust that keeps settling on you....

WEEKLY PLANNER

It’s easy to fall into a regularity of wearing the same thing every day. To revive up our melancholy for this week, I looked to the street and newest trends for elegant, easy style inspiration. Consider the seven looks below my pre-planned, hassle-free attires for the week.  When I decide what to wear I first pick one inspirational piece- a T-Shirt, shoes, bag or earrings, I style around it my entire outfit. It can be a very creative and fun process...
