5 Ways To Style Converse Chuck Taylor High Tops

1. Loving these red Chucks styled with this super comfy looking hoodie dress by Rick Owens. Since its too cold outside for bare legs a pair of tights can help keep the cold out. I'm obsessed with the Gucci loved beanie and the Saint Laurent Lou bag.  

2. Love classic black Chucks they can be worn with any of the outfit in this post. Really loving the Mansur Gavriel circle bag its such a great statement piece. 

3. Nothing is cuter than pink Chucks. I'm loving the original gangsta Lingua Franca sweater paired with the Topshop Jamie jeans and the guaranteed to keep you dry Hunter jacket. Also loving that the transparency of the Hunter jacket lets you show off your outfit #ootd. 

4. You can't go wrong with class white Chucks. Loving the sweater dress from Topshop paired with the long denim jacket from H&M. Gucci gang out with this Ophidia bag that has the classic GG signature monogram and stripes. 

5. A switch on the classics are these metallic Chucks. Loving them paired with these comfy looking velvet pants from Ulla Johnson and wool-blend turtleneck sweater from Joseph. Keep warm with this Intermix metallic puffer coat that shines bright. Obsessing over all thing Celine, the Nano is on my must have list.

Save or Splurge: Valentine's Day Outfit Edition

Its almost the day of love! 💃🏿 😍 🌹 ❤️
Whether you going on a date with your significant other or having a girls night out with your squad its always fun to rock a cute and stylish outfit for V-day.  I made save or splurge editions of each outfit for the ladies who love a good discount, the ladies who love a good spending spree or the ladies who like a little of both. Check my three Valentine's Day outfit ideas that are sure to make the day of love all the more special below ↓.

Lacy Dreams 
I'm obsessing how this Astra The Label lace dress looks so similar to the Self-Portrait Azaelea dress, its such a good dupe. You can never go wrong with a nude heel, these options from Steve Madden and Saint Laurent are so pretty and perfect.  

Red Pearl Jam 
I'm loving everything about this look, the Jeffery Campbell dupes to the Nicholas Kirkwood boots are spot on, they are the definition of a statement shoe. If there is any day to wear red it Valentine's Day, I love a airy blouse the red Zara blouse is a great alternative to the Alice + Olivia Gwenda blouse. 

Little Red "Bow" Peep 
I've always loved the Gianvito Rossi Gala Ankle Wrap Pumps, they are so sexy and pretty. When I found this H&M version for the fraction of the cost I saw stars lol. I love a good wallet on chain, you will never regret buying the classic Chanel WOC but for those whose wallets are a bit lighter the Botkier Soho WOC  is a wonderful alternative until you can afford the Chanel.
