Love is in the air and we're ready to help you celebrate! I'm excited to announce my collaboration with fellow blogger Bianca Gale of Curvaceously Bee. For the rest of the month we'll be bringing you looks for all your date nights, social occasions and festive events. We're sure to feature something that will suit your style so be sure to follow our blogs and social media pages under the hashtag #bellaandbeecolorsoflove.

I'm kicking off the collab with some looks from Fashion To Figure, my go-to store at my local mall. FTF is no stranger here on the blog and that's because it really is one my all time favorite stores. This red peplum top jumped out at me while I was on my way out the store. Does that ever happen to you? You're standing in the check out line and then all of sudden one more thing calls your then you have to step out of line and start the whole process of trying on stuff, matching it up with a partner (top or bottom) and then head back to the line again. Or does this only happen to me?! Well such was the case with this red top. The ivory top and red skirt (below) also came home with me that day and I knew I'd show the looks together for the traditionalists out there!

Red & white is a classic color combo for Valentine's Day. If you're celebrating the whole weekend, these two looks will take you from work to happy hour/dinner or from church (since V-day is on a Sunday this year) to breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner...whatever, whenever, wherever! The great thing is that you'll also be able to have fun mixing and matching these items with other cute stuff from your closet since they really are staple colors. Check out Bianca's look for this week here. Stay tuned for more great looks coming your way!

P.S. The sun was playing peek-a-boo on the day we shot so that's why you see more sun in some pics than others!

*Styling notes: The red peplum came with inner lining that I removed because I didn't like it way it flared out around the mid-section (I know that was the intention, but it just didn't suit me). The tie on the ivory top can be worn in the back or front. I preferred it tied in the back, but showed it both ways. Though you can mix & match the pieces, the red top and skirt are a bit of a different shade so if you're a stickler for exact color matching you probably won't pair them together. But they're sure to be great assets to your wardrobe! And here's another red & ivory look for you if you just can't get enough of the color combo!
