Leopard IS a Neutral

Happy Valentine's day! Chloe is curious as to what you have planned. Mani and mags? Galentine's night out? Hot date? Whatever the case may be, wear or do something that makes you feel extra special!
Jeremy and I are celebrating the looove tomorrow night with sake bombs, sushi, and martinis, then meeting a few friends out for [some more] drinks. I told you, we don't get very fancy ;)
 
 When I went to Target to check out the Peter Pilotto collection last Sunday, I spotted this beanie. The gold studs caught my eye and I just had to have it [because we all know it's impossible to leave Target with only what you intended to buy].
 
 
 Surprisingly, it wasn't that cold on Wednesday so I was able to wear something other than a heavy parka! I've had this jacket for a couple years now but lucky for you [that is, if you're interested], it's still on SheInside's website! I love the gold hardware and the quilted leather on the sleeves.
 How perfect are these pants? They're also an old purchase but I don't see them leaving my closet any time soon. Great example of proving that leopard really is a neutral.
 
 
 
Jacket: SheInside | Tee: Target | Denim: Kohl's [similar here, here, here, here] | Necklace: Ebay [similar here] | Watch: Michael Kors | Rings: ASOS, H&M | Sunglasses: Target | Clutch: GiGi New York | Beanie: Target | Boots: Clarks [similar here]


These boots [and these] have been my go-to's this winter as they're perfect for the slick and snowy weather. I can't stress enough how important it is to invest in a solid pair of boots. I've had these boots for two years and they're not showing any wear or tear. 
A good boot goes a long way, too. I feel like I can throw anything on with these boots and I'll still look put together because of the quality. There's been countless times that I've seen a girl with a really cute outfit on then I look down and [ohhhhh] cheap, plastic-looking boots that ruin her outfit. No bueno. Invest in the boots. You'll end up replacing the cheap ones every year anyway.. might as well throw all your money in at once ;) As my grandma would've said, "Ya' can't take it with ya'!"
