Valentine's Day Gift Guide

cute & little | valentine's day gift guide inspiration

I've been in girly-girly mode lately and Valentine's Day has me all sorts of inspired!  For me it's a holiday for celebrating love and from the pink hearts to even the kitschy messages, I'm all for it!  If you're not one to wear pink or hearts, you can't go wrong with a pop of pink in the accessories department!  From a cute pink bag, to a pink watch (see on me), to pink earrings, it's the perfect way to have a little fun with your wardrobe without going overboard.  But then of course, you can come home and change into these black satin pajamas with the cutest pink hearts!

And since I now have a new home to decorate, I've been finding all kinds of pieces that would be perfect for accenting your home this month.  This pink pom-pom throw is probably one of my favorites and such a great piece for snuggling on the cough.  And of course, these pillows!  I just love the "ooh la la" and "let's make out" messages that are instant conversation starters!  For anyone who is looking to spruce up their home with some professional help, I've been working with Havenly and a gift card for one of their interior design services would put you on the top of your significant other's list!  It's seriously the gift that keeps on giving as there's no better feeling than coming home to a beautiful space.  Use the code CUTE20 for 20% off their complete design package (bringing it to only $159, valid until July 1, 2016).  Havenly has such a wide range of different sources they go to for their pieces and I just love that they honor coupons and even beat any lower prices by 2%!

I can't wait to show you the reveal of our home but in the meantime, I hope these pieces will have you inspired for the month of love too!

Can you believe that Valentine's Day is next weekend?  Even though Valentine's Day can be one of those cheesy holidays, it's actually always been one of my favorites.  I just love any reason to pick up a pretty new dress, indulge in a little extra chocolate, and of course, get all dolled up!  I've been crushing hard on the pinks lately and immediately fell in love with this Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette! 

Packed with 12 neutral warm shades (and under $10, what?!), it has the perfect combination of colors to help me create a soft and pretty look for Valentine's Day.  The colors are actually infused with rose gold pigments that create for bolder, more intense hues.  I love having all the colors in a convenient package as it lets me put together a look in no time flat!  With two little ones constantly at my feet, I can't spend nearly the amount of time that I used to getting ready.  If I can't get my makeup done in 5 minutes, it usually doesn't get done at all.  That's why I'm so excited to share my 5-minute, no-fuss smoky pink makeup tutorial

One of my style resolutions for the year is to keep a more curated closet.  Earlier this month when we moved into our new house, I took the opportunity to purge my closet.  Inevitably, I had clothes that I hadn't worn in years and couldn't see myself wearing again as my style had just evolved.  My closet was overflowing yet it became increasingly difficult to figure out an outfit every day.  When My Endless Wardrobe approached me about their monthly wardrobe rental subscription service, it sounded like exactly what I needed!

Continuing with the Valentine's Day inspiration looks (in case you missed it, you can check them out here and here), this outfit is feminine, pretty, and pink!  I'm crushing hard on pink shades right now and was excited to see that rose quartz was even named one of the Pantone colors of 2016!

I love the waterfall drape style of this coat and it's the perfect layering piece for those days when only a light layer is needed.  The fabric of this coat is more like a blanket (so snuggly!) and the edges are serged to prevent fraying.  I found the sleeves about 2" too long on me and borrowed a friend's serger for an easy diy.  I know this coat will be getting lots of wear as I'm itching for spring already!

Hello and happy Monday! This weekend was an amazing couple of days with perfectly sunny 75-degree weather and we tried to spend every minute of it outside with the kiddos!

I was originally planning to wear this dress for Valentine's Day but decided to break it out a little early as the warm weather made it perfect to wear on its own. I love the red ombré coloring and the pleats give it such an entrancing sway and movement.
