HGG is back and better than ever before! I missed blogging so much you guys, so I'm really happy to be back in action! What better way to kick off 2015, than with a collaboration for a very special holiday that most ladies enjoy! Valentine's Day is vastly approaching and I know you want to find the perfect outfit for your special day or night out with the beaux. Arika, from Glamstyledivas.com and I, teamed up to give you lovely ladies two outfit ideas for your day and evening festivities.
Even if you're single and you don't necessarily have a special someone in your life, you can definitely take this day to treat yourself to a day of pampering and relaxation. A mani pedi, shopping trip, or facial to rejuvenate your skin and keep you looking radiant, are all great ways to spend your day. Or perhaps take this day to celebrate with other meaningful individuals in your life like family or close friends. Love comes in all forms and can be shared with anyone you allow your heart to open up to!
Beginning with our day time outfits, we each took one of the signifying colors for the holiday, red or pink, and came up with our own interpretations of what you may want to wear for Valentine's Day. My focus color was pink, but being the color crazed diva that I am, I thought why not go all out and let's be totally festive with a combination of the two colors. I started with a rose pink blouse that was very simple. It featured a boxy shape, so I gave it a little dimension and belted it with a cream skinny belt. The shoulders had very slight gathering and the seam detailing down the front gave this top a little bit more interest. My pants were a straight leg trouser that had an elastic waistband and they too gathered in design, but around the middle for a more relaxed yet chic appeal. I accessorized with my pink bow clutch with detachable gold chain strap, a pair of basic cream sandals and very minimalistic gold jewelry. This outfit is perfect for brunch, the museum or the theatre. The looks don't stop here! Remember to stay tuned for our night time outfits to hit the blog on Thursday, February 5th.
**Style Tip of the Day**
When choosing to color block, solid pieces are always best. It streamlines the color and makes the eye focus directly on the color, rather then getting lost in color and print.

Here's Arika's description of her Valentine's Day look...For my daytime look I wanted to create a look that was easy, girly and just a tad bit sexy. With this in mind, I thought of a nice fitting, scuba material pencil skirt. This material gives you the fit that you want and it allows you to move around with ease. The skirt bares a little bit of leg. This, combined with pumps with an ankle strap, creates a little sex appeal. To complete the look, I added a crop top and a peplum style faux leather jacket. I love the way this look turned out!
