There are no rules when it comes to figuring out your Valentine’s Day outfit. Call it a silly Hallmark holiday if you must, I call it a great excuse to dress up. A classic red dress may be the quintessential choice, but thankfully there are no rules in fashion. Have fun and get creative! Different activities call for different looks, so this week I’m sharing a few of my favorites. I love the idea of something sexy but not too cliche. I am always a sucker for a great jumpsuit, and this number by Shop Planet Blue is so feminine and fun. It’s not exactly Chicago Winter appropriate (the styles I am drawn to usually are not), but paired with your favorite ankle boots and big furry coat, it works! The fit is true to size, I am in an XS for reference. Added bonus she’s on super sale at 50 percent off. My socks booties are by Zara, earrings by Ettika. Don’t forget to lock the look in with a bold bright lip color. I am wearing Stila stay all day lip stain. I have multiple shades of this product. I love the way it goes on so creamy and bold…and the powerful stain factor is perfect for an evening of eating and drinking!

I recently participated in an event organized by local Chicago bloggers called Speed Blogging. An even number of bloggers and photographers got together for a big photo snapping party. Great way to support each other and create loads of content in a short amount of time. The shoot took place at The Catalyst Ranch in the West Loop, such a cool venue!
