4 Couture Looks to Copy this Valentine's Day

As I mentioned in my Valentine's Day outfit inspiration post last year, it is most definitely one of my favorite holidays. Even though I will be spending this year's holiday away from the people I love most (family, boyfriend, etc.), I have my little family of friends here in Roma that I am happy to celebrate with. The concept of wearing red and pink on Valentine's Day is always fun, so I've put together a few outfits that incorporate those colors, and some that are just plain couture.

I know we've all been seeing this vintage Gucci shirt circulate the street style scene, and I know it's getting kind of basic at this point, but I honestly cannot get enough of it. If you're looking for a casual outfit to wear to the coffee shop, this one is perfect. Are the clogs and the skirt together not the cutest combination?

For all the girls who love pink and enjoy a fabulous and fancy evening out, I created this outfit using multiple shades of pink! The Zimmermann dress is just so beautiful and makes a statement. Even the shades I chose are a rosy pink. Would you wear this?
Rock jeans this holiday and still look amazingly elegant in a silk top and practical heels. Out of all of these outfits, this is probably the one you'd catch me in, even on a regular day. Where would you wear this?

I hope you've all found these outfits fun and helpful for the upcoming Valentine's Day festivities. Let me know which one you would wear in the comments below! Also shoutout to all my friends and family who were born on Valentine's Day, especially Grace. Have a very happy February!

P.S. I am visiting Milan during Fashion Week at the end of the month. I am very excited to meet other bloggers and reach out to brands. If you are going to be in Milan as well, I'd love to meet you! Send me a message on Instagram or Twitter!

What I Wore... Around Rome

This weekend I explored Rome with one of my favorite people: my dad! I am so thankful he was able to visit me on my semester abroad, even though it was for a very short time. I've been dying to show off some of the new outfits I've bought here because everything is just so perfect and incredibly me. Hopefully, I will do more 'what I wore' posts as I am finally recovered from almost two weeks of being sick off and on, and I am ready to get back out there and explore!

In this country, I've grown to love muted colors like black and white again, a stage I went through before during the fall of my senior year of high school. It is because many Italian people wear all black outfits.  My dress is from MANGO, which I bought here. 

My favorite thing about this dress is the sleeves. The ruffled fabric take the dress from plain to eye-catching. It also has a very nice fit to it and is comfortable enough to wear around the city because it's not skin tight at all! 

This dress has become a staple piece for my wardrobe because it is so simple to dress up, or down. Here I've made it casual enough to walk around Rome in by adding the black booties I wear constantly and some leggings. To make yourself stand out from the crowd, you could wear heels, add some accessories such as a belt or a statement necklace or bracelets, or just skip the leggings and show some skin!
