One Skirt, Two Ways for Valentine’s Day – ft. The Femhem

Even more than Christmas, Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday when it comes to choosing outfits. This year, I’m teaming up with my sweet friend, Catie, blogger behind the Femhem, to bring you two holiday-inspired looks featuring the most twirl-friendly party skirt.

I purchased this skirt a few years back from ASOS, but found this great alternative for less than $100, and another one here and here. I’ve styled it so many ways, and always feel feminine yet powerful wearing this bold color. It’s the perfect companion for the holiday of love, no matter your plans.

I paired it with this lip-embroidered sweater, which I fell in love with the moment I laid eyes on it. Staying true to my style, and keeping things classic, I layered the sweater over a simple button-up shirt and my favorite patent leather pumps. Scroll through to see all of the details from this Valentine’s Day inspired look, AND to find out how Catie styled this skirt her way!

I love the way Catie has made this skirt totally her own. She effortlessly mixes classic pieces with trendier items, and edgy leathers with feminine florals, a talent I’ve always admired in her style. Visit her page and check out more of her amazing outfits.

  • Exactly one week ago, @attybernard and I went on our last coffee date before spending the rest of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation for our little girl. Something about that day just made us feel like she wasn’t going to be long. The very next day she joined our world, and these have been the best 6 days of my entire life. 💕 #newmom #newparents #newbornbaby #pittsburghphotographer #thehappynow #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese
  • Settling into our family of three, and this guy is the best teammate a girl could ask for. I never knew I could feel so much love—I could burst. #newparents  #thehappynow #livebeautifully #postitfortheaesthetic #inspiremyinstagram #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #postitfortheaesthetic
  • This girl entered our worlds yesterday afternoon—exactly two weeks ahead of schedule and right at the end of the Pats game—just letting mommy and daddy know who’s gonna be in charge of the schedule from now on. #newbabygirl
  • I hear we have some snow coming Pittsburgh, friends! 💕 Am I the only weirdo who is actually excited about this? You can find me in all the cozy sweaters and blankets, snuggled up on the couch. 😍 #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers
  • I finally got a vanity at age 31. I never knew what I was missing! ☺️ #husbandwin #ikeahack #affordabledecor
  • Hard to believe how soon our little one will be joining us. Feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly ready to meet her. I’m curious—any other moms to be out there? If so, when are you due? And those of you who are already moms, what words of wisdom would you share with those of us about to become mamas, too? #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers #37weeks 📷: @julieanne514
