Valentine’s Looks for Millennials and Mid-Lifers

If you’ve been following with Fashion Trends and Friends, you know that we (Lori, Cindy and I – friends since college) originally got started with the premise that no matter your age or your size you can always look cute and trendy if that is important to you! My advice has and always will be to wear whatever brings you joy and that you feel great wearing! Additionally, don’t be afraid to shop any where; or limit yourself to only shopping at stores that cater to our demographic!

For the past five years, I’ve had the great pleasure of working with my favorite fashion passionate millennial friend Brittany (Lori’s niece)! She’s currently 26 and I’m 60. We’re proof that you can wear anything no matter your age! Would you agree? We typically post in the fall and have also done a Lilly Pulitzer post together. (To see that post, click HERE.) When Brittany reached out asking if I wanted to do a Valentine’s post, I was all for it! You see we both love dressing for the holidays!

Look of Love 1

Brittany is wearing the cutest pink heart sweater from Limelush along with her peep toe booties from Steve Madden and the cutest Kate Spade crossbody heart bag! Brittany is wearing the cutest heart earrings by Brianna Cannon. If I wasn’t on my self-imposed “no shop January”, I would have gotten a red heart shaped bag or a purse that says Love! Accessories always elevate and complete a look so if you don’t want to go full out holiday attire, think about adding touches! I’m wearing a tunic dress, which with my height it requires me to wear leggings. I prefer the added warmth any way. My faux suede red booties are rimmed with metal studs and have a block heel. I added my red glitter heart earrings and cuff bracelet made by LDWatkins Designs. (To see a previous blog post about LaDonna of LDWatkins Designs, click HERE.)

Look of Love 2

Brittany and I are calling look 2 our Metallic Look of Love! Brittany’s Lilly Pulitzer dress has gold metallic hearts; and I’m sure you can see I’m wearing my silver metallic coated boyfriend jeans along with my graphic Love t-shirt in silver metallic. Brittany added the cutest strand of hearts necklace and her pink pumps. To complete my look, I added my fuchsia blazer and booties, rhinestone belt and accessories.

Look of Love 3

Brittany and I always like to wear something identical to show that millennials and midlifers can dress alike! Case in point, this adorable Lilly Pulitzer skirt and dress! These navy pieces with pink metallic hearts is so darn cute! Brittany paired her skirt with a Lilly Pulitzer pearl embellished sweater and pearl headband. She wore another cute pair of earrings by Brianna Cannon, added her Kate Spade heart bag and feather sandals! I love the puffy statement sleeves on my dress and paired the dress with my pink Sam Edelman booties!

Look of Love 4

Brittany and I decided to do a matching heart scarf with light pink, pink and purple hearts and a tassel detail on the ends! The scarf can be tied multiple ways and worn with various colors. I paired the scarf with my pink tunic sweater from a local boutique in my area. Brittany opted for a buttery soft tee from Lilly Pulitzer. Take a close look at Brittany’s super fun pumps with the heart heels! This is a great way to create a holiday look without breaking the bank and can easily be worn year after year. Plus you could wear it whenever you want. Don’t just save it for Valentine’s Day.

Couldn’t resist adding this blooper…Maize wanted in on the fun but was uncooperative when it came to sitting pretty! LOL The picture taking challenge is REAL! Not to mention it was freezing!

She did have on a cute Valentine’s scarf!

Love of Look 5

Brittany paired her beautiful embellished Lilly Pulitzer sweater with her dark wash jeans, feather sandals, pearl headband and heart earrings! I shopped my closet for my whole look, which was purchased last year. My Love sweater has a sequin letter o in the shape of a heart. The pants are faux velvet; and I wear them all winter long. Plus my fabulously fun glitter heart earrings and cuff. We had to add my heart shaped glasses..another fun easy add to for a festive look! Plus you know I love my red lipsticks! This is the perfect holiday to rock red lips. To see my previous blog post on my top 5 favorite red lipstick, click HERE.

    I appreciate your kind comments! Age should never dictate what we wear! Wear what you love and feel confident in and you’ll always look great!
