Sweet & Sassy

I was working on this post yesterday, and my son leaned over and asked, ‘What’s this one about?’ When I showed him the two looks for Valentine’s Day, he said, ‘Oh cool, so like when your man’s being a butt, and you get sassy to show him what’s up?’ #perceptive

That wasn’t exactly what I had in mind, but I like it! Sometimes our guys need to see us make an effort. They need to see a glimpse of the sassy girl they first met. And no matter how I’m feeling or what’s going on in life, getting dolled-up always puts a sassy pep in my step.

And it doesn’t require a fancy or body-conscious dress…some killer heels and statement jewels can get it done!

This cozy sweater is a great everyday, casual option, but paired with my favorite pleated skirt (also seen here and here), and some gorgeous jewels from Kendra Scott’s new Spring Collection, I’m ready for a fun night out. A pop of leopard always signals fun, too.

Fit Tip: The sweater is soft and warm, and fits oversized. I’m wearing an XS. If you prefer a lighter, more fitted sweater, this one is a favorite and 30% off!

I love colorful, tassel-style earrings (these are stunning!), but these bold, graphic Kendra Scott gold pieces make a bigger statement, especially when worn together. They are surprisingly lightweight, and I love the intricate design of the adjustable cuff. The ring is really substantial and solid (especially given the price!), and so smooth and comfortable to wear.

You last saw these sassy sandals in this Date Night post, and I love any chance to wear them. I’m dying for the pink ones, too.

Fit Tip: I sized up half.

Now let’s style the cozy sweater for more casual day wear…I love it paired with white jeans, and the baseball cap is darling year-round, but especially for Valentine’s week. And you can absolutely pair pink and red, just keep the colors in contrasting tones.

Fit Tip: These white jeans and sneakers are always on repeat, but size down in both.

I dialed the jewels back for day, but I always wear hoops with baseball caps (I like the touch of femininity with the sporty style), and these are so fun with a touch of bling.

What are your Valentine plans? Will you be getting sassy, or staying sweet? What do you think of my son’s perspective? And sidenote, but how funny was the Eli Manning ‘Dirty Dancing‘ commercial during the Super Bowl last night!?! I loved that one and the Tide ads the best.

    When your teenager (any teenager!) is talking to you, that’s a good sign!
    I must be getting old, I didn’t “get” most of the ads. “Dirty Dancing” was the funniest, most memorable. Interesting game.

  4. Are sassy or sweet my own two options? I think this year I’m choosing pajamas. 😉 Love the outfits today though…you in that pleated leather skirt is perfection, and you’re always so dang cute in a baseball cap!
