TOP: CREAM BOW BLOUSE (ON SALE! + I ALSO LOVE THIS WHITE BOW BLOUSE)  |  BOTTOMS: BLUSH PLEATED SHORTS  |  VEST: WRAP VEST (I ALSO LOVE THIS LONG GREY DRAPE VEST)  |  BAG: CHLOE 'FAYE' SHOULDER BAG  |  SHOES: VALENTINO ROCKSTUD CAGED FLATS  |  LIPS: YSL SHEER CANDY IN 'COOL GUAVA'  |  SUNGLASSES: CELINE SUNGLASSES

Blush pink and grey have long been the perfect color combo in my book. When you combine these soft colors, you get a beautifully romantic palette that's all kinds of pretty. They are so beautiful when paired together that I actually even used these soft colors for our wedding.

This ensemble is my ideal of a romantic valentines day look. It's soft and neutral but still stylish and not overly girly. Pairing a long leather drape vest over a romantic bow blouse and pleated blush shorts is the perfect way to mix in a modern touch with an otherwise all-feminine ensemble.

This look would be perfect for a lunch date or morning brunch with your significant other. I love that everything is also loose and comfortable, so I feel like I can move around and spend my day in this look without feeling constricted or over-styled.

Instead of unnecessary gifts, each year on Valentine's Day Ben and I like to spend our time doing the things we love with one another. Quality time means more than any overpriced bouquet of roses or unhealthy box of chocolates. This year, we decided to go hike one of our favorites here in Scottsdale, Pinnacle Peak.

I decided to get in the Valentine's Day spirit by donning this incredibly adorable red bow neck jacket and side bow capri leggings from kate spade new york's adorable collaboration with Beyond Yoga. Have you guys seen it? Literally everything is on my wish list. I mean, how cute are these tuxedo stripe leggings and this side bow slit skirt?!

It was so much fun spending our date enjoying the outdoors. And I love that I can wear my Valentine's Day outfit over and over again throughout the year, all while getting in shape. But don't get me wrong, I love getting dressed up for a romantic dinner too, but I prefer dining al fresco with my honey on a home-cooked meal. And kate spade new york can come too, obviously.

If you're heading to Arizona, or if you're a local looking for a new hike to enjoy, check out Pinnacle Peak. It's a super easy and short 3.9 mile trail (out and back) surrounded by mountain desert and beautiful cacti. It's also kid friendly for all you mama's out there, but sadly fur-moms must leave their babes at home. But if you head out with your honey lookin' super cute in your kate spade new york activewear, you won't regret it.

After working up a sweat, we decided to go grab a snack and some yummy latte's from one of our favorite spots, Altitude Coffee Lab. Grab a table outside and sip on your coffee while noshing on the most delicious acai bowl and/or croissant and you will have the perfect date with your Valentine. I know we sure did. And I must say, I think I looked super cute and festive for my date in my kate spade new york activewear.

What do you guys think? Did I win his heart?

DRESS: BELL SLEEVE MINI PRINTED DRESS (ALSO AVAILABLE HERE + HERE PLUS I LOVE THE MAXI DRESS VERSION)  |  HAT: STRAW BOATER HAT  |  SUNGLASSES: CELINE BLACK SUNGLASSES  |  BRACELETS: ALEX & ANI BANGLES

Taking you back to Mexico, I wanted to share with you all this fun printed off shoulder dress I wore while hanging on Akumal Beach. Visiting this beach is one of my favorite things to do in Mexico. You can sit with your toes in the soft sand while enjoying the yummiest lunch and drinks at Lol-Ha (literally the best Mexican food you will ever have! No joke). After lunch I like to spend the afternoon snorkeling with the sea turtles (I usually bring my own, but you can rent snorkel gear right on the beach (like $15 for the day)). I don't recommend doing the "tour" though, just grab your gear and head out there.

When you're on vacation, there is little more than a great dress and a cute swimsuit that you need. This off-shoulder vintage inspired floral print dress will add a pop of romance while keeping you cute and comfortable. I also love this maxi dress version (it also is available in white).

DRESS: SUEDE TAN DRESS (MORE OF MY FAVORITE SUEDE DRESSES IN THE WIDGET BELOW)  |  BAG: CHANEL, SIMILAR BLACK QUILTED BAG  |  SHOES: MADEWELL 'BILLIE' BOOTS  |  SUNGLASSES: ROUND TORTOISE SUNGLASSES  |  HAT: BLACK FEDORA  |  NECKLACE: MADEWELL FLOATING ARROW NECKLACE (ON SALE!)   |  BRACELETS: ALEX AND ANI BANGLES

Suede is both timeless and on-trend, not to mention stealing the spotlight on the catwalks. I love this tan suede shift dress because the classic silhouette paired with the refined suede texture is understated, yet statement-making, all at the same time.

You can change up this dress so easily. I went a little more bohemian with this hat and round retro sunglasses, but if you are looking to pack more of a casual or western punch, I love it paired with a long-sleeved turtleneck underneath with a denim jacket or plaid shirt belted over the top. Simply add your favorite pair of boots and you're ready to roll.

But what I really want to know is, how would you style this dress?
