Francesca’s Haul

Francesca’s Haul

Hello, hello! To finish out this little Mall Haul series, we are going to discuss a darling Jun & Ivy skirt and a headband that I got for Valentine’s Day from Francesca’s. On lifewithlilred, V-Day always means a fun photo shoot to show ya’ll how to dress girly sweet while still incorporating your personal style on the holiday of romance. And, since I’m in a relationship, I also needed a little something something to sport on my date night with my boyfriend as well as the photo shoot. Here’s a sneak peek of some of what I’ll be wearing compliments of Francesca’s:

When it comes to styling for Valentine’s Day, I always try to incorporate a bit of a rocker edge, because I consider that to be my signature style. So, I was definitely happy to have found a cute and cheeky skirt for V-Day without it being in pink! During my trip to the mall, I didn’t want to go for anything too obvious but the lipstick kisses and red hearts against the black background of my Jun & Ivy skirt sold me.

The best part, though? The shape! This skirt is cinched around the waist with elastic, runs tighter down the thigh, and flounces out at the bottom. The effect? An hourglass silhouette which screams sex appeal while still being oh so sweet thanks to the movement at the bottom. When I first saw this skirt on the hanger, I thought it was a true skater skirt, but it is so much more than that. The unique designing takes it over the edge from just being “cute”, which is what I wanted to avoid.

And, of course, you aren’t complete for a V-Day OOTD without some accessories! To me, nothing beats sporting pearls on Valentine’s Day. They are timeless while still being daring because it takes a lot to pull off such classic simplicity. When I saw my pearl adorned headband, I was in love. I knew that it would tie together the vision that I had in my head while styling for my upcoming photo shoot and date night. But, never mind that, because this headband will be a perfect add on accessory to any look!

How will I incorporate these two new pieces into one slamming OOTD? You’ll just have to wait and see!

How do you style an OOTD for a date night out? How do you describe your personal style? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Accessory Story: New Earrings Pt. 2 Edition

Accessory Story: New Earrings Pt. 2 Edition

Hi everyone! As you saw yesterday, I purchased some earrings worthy of the Queen Of Hearts at Target. But, I didn’t stop there. NO SIREE BOB. Because, damnit, I just like to sparkle. Lol, I also ended up with a darling pair of glittery hoops and some dangly pearls that I just couldn’t say no to. I swear, I’ll stop buying jewelry… Said no girl ever! Take a look and let’s discuss:

When it comes to earrings, I love when they have a lot of movement to them, which is what made me so attracted to the two pairs seen above. There is also nothing better than fun pairs peeking out from my short hair, making these two optimal choices to add to my collection. And, in my defense, I don’t own any earrings that look like my new Sugarfix and A New Day pairs!

I am so obsessed with the glittery hoops because of their unique shape. I really like the pink, rhinestone bordered gem stone dropping down into a sparkling hoop, making for fairy dust magic with every hair flip. And, I never say no to pearls, fake or not! The shape of the dangling pearls are also interesting because it goes from big to small, when it’s normally the other way around for a drop style pair. These earrings are classy but still a lot of fun and will be a great pair to mix and match with ones that are a little more fierce. My bloody knife pair, anyone?!

Nothing says “treat yoself” like some pretty new earrings… or four. But, hey, sometimes a girl just has to spoil herself! 😀

What do you like to buy as a treat yoself purchase? What is your most unique pair of earrings like? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
