This month’s Diversity Chic was sponsored by 7 Charming Sisters, but like every other post you read here, all opinions are my own. 🙂

Some of my favorite elementary school memories are from Valentine’s Day! For some reason (even though I was TERRIFIED to get a Valentine from a boy who might like me), I just loved the parties! They were so festive and you got to give everyone in your class a gift! I also really loved picking out Valentine’s for each person. One year I had Spice Girls Valentines, so obviously that year wins. Honestly, I’m not that big of a Valentine’s Day girl now. I loved it WAY more as a kid. It’s just too much pressure, too much planning and too stressful. My husband and I always keep it low key. This year I’m going to (attempt) to make a nice dinner! Will report back on that later.
Because I’m not suuuuper into Valentine’s Day, when we decided to do Valentine’s Day looks for Diversity Chic, I knew I would go for a more edgy Valentine’s Day look. I paired a bodysuit and skater skirt I already had with some lace up combat booties, heart print tights and (for a dose of Valentine’s Day color), my brand spankin’ new Bowie jacket. Swoon. Can I just celebrate Valentine’s Day with this jacket? No? Okay.
Psst if you’re a blogger, don’t forget to link up you’re Valentine’s Day looks below! And even if you’re not, use the hashtag #diversitychic for your looks so we can see them!
The thing that really ties the look together is the gorgeous necklace I’m wearing from 7 Charming Sisters. When this company reached out to me, I knew it would be a PERFECT way to top off this look. It’s a fabulous combination of edgy and romantic and sooooo me. I also love that it doesn’t feel cheap but it’s also not super heavy – some of my statement necklaces are so heavy they literally hurt my neck!
Bonded like sistersHow can seven individuals with distinctly strong personalities work together?
We all have different tastes and ideas, but in the end we come together and support one another. It works because even though we are different we share a common goal- To create a collection of FABulous jewelry. What could be more fun than that? This should be hard work, but it ends up being fun. We support each other and we are stronger because of our individuality.
