MY EDGY UN-GIRLY VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and as always, there's a million blog posts and tutorials for uber-girly, uber-sexy, uber-feminine looks out there but what about us un-girly girls who want to look and feel good on Valentine's Day, too?! If skintight dresses, too-high heels and boob-baring blouses just aren't your thing, you're not alone! Looking and feeling sexy has everything to do with confidence and I'm far more self conscious than confident in all of the aforementioned garments myself. What make me feel good are some heavy metal accessories, a sick jacket and pair of boots and flawless, flattering makeup so that's exactly what I'm rocking this Valentine's Day! After all, loving yourself should be the number one love you celebrate on Valentine's Day and every day! This edgy V-Day inspired look is perfect for a date night with your lover or an anti-Valentine's outing with your friends!
I based my entire look off of this Nastygal red vegan leather biker jacket I bought months ago because I'd yet to take the tags off and Valentine's Day seemed like the perfect occasion to break it in! I like to make a bit of a statement with my outfits, especially when they're holiday themed so I thought, a matching bright red pair of boots would look rad! I got these bad boys from Zara a few months ago but since they turnover styles so quickly, I found a similar Steve Madden pair for you! Because my jacket and boots were so loud, I stuck to all black for the rest of my ensemble, punching it up with statement geometric black and silver earrings and an awesome grommet belt from Zara. If you haven't already, check out my Eye See You, Eyelets post for my favorite trendy eyelet/grommet finds! I finished off my look with a fun, whimsical white and red heart satchel bag from Dr. Martens. I actually also own the matching boots to this bag and love wearing them year round. I included those and a bunch of other awesome items you can shop below to recreate a similar look to my edgy, un-girly Valentine's Day ensemble if you dig it!
