Valentine's Day outfits! Forever 21 style

Valentine's Day is coming upon us quickly, and I have NOTHING to wear. Of course, if someone else were to look through my closet they would probably find something that is Valentine's Day worthy, but I'm all about new clothes. What young women doesn't love new clothes, I know they have become apart of who I am. I love my clothes because they help me express who I am as a person, but enough of that and on to looks!

I first checked Forever 21's site because let us face it, I am a broke college girl and I understand that there are millions of us broke college girls who have barely any money to our names but will make sure we look fab regardless. To my surprise there was a Valentine's Day tab on the site which made my searching for looks even easier. 

This first look will be mainly focused on black and white, because not everyone wants to wear Pinks or Reds during V-Day. And I think wearing black and/or white creates a timeless look anyway.  Everything from this look is at Forever 21.

The next look is for the working ladies. This look can be worn to work because it has a blazer and you can button it up to look more professional. Then when it's time for your date with your loved one you can take off the blazer or just unbutton it to show off the beautiful sweetheart neckline of your romper. 

This last look is more of my style. I love skirts and paring a dark midi skirt with a nice light colored shirt because it evens out the harshness of the dark skirt. Plus its up to you if you want to wear heels or flats. Also this look, looks much better with an updo messy hairstyle, like a bun! 

I hope these looks help you out if you don't have a clue what to wear on V-day! Either way, as long as your comfortable and fab! Until then,

Xoxo, Jacklyn 

Coffee daze

It's finally cold enough to have the " I need coffee everyday to keep me warm" excuse. And boy I've been using that excuse to travel around my little city and hit up as many coffee shops as I can. If you had asked me two months ago if I knew what the difference between a cafe latte and cappuccino was, I would have probably look at you like you're talking to me in a different language. But alas I am learning, and because I need to for my new part-time job as a barista. YAY! 

Today I decided to go to "The Warehouse Cafe" and knew I wanted to wear something simple and warm but still stay chic. Apparently ripped jeans are the in trend and of course black NEVER goes out of style so I went with this relaxed but stylish look. Fun fact; as a kind I was terrified of turtle neck sweaters because I felt like I was suffocating, good thing for me, I'm over it because I love turtle neck sweaters. They are so effortlessly chic! Everything I am wearing, except my coat, is from Forever 21! 

It was really sunny outside so it looked warm but and it was a lie! The sun did not stop the freezing temperatures. I really don't like wearing red lipstick because I feel it makes me look weird but I decided for this outfit that I would wear a maroon red lip called "Vampira" from Kat Von D's collection.

I absolutely love how Jersey city is using the empty warehouses to open up stores and event spaces for the community because of that, my city is getting more artistic and fun, which is exciting since I'm all about art,fashion and photography!

The Warehouse cafe is a little eccentric space, very different from 9 Bar, Brewshot and Modcup but in a good way. I was afraid while doing this journey of trying different coffee shops that they would be all so similar in style and atmosphere and yet each time I try a new place, I'm wowed at the difference each place gives. 

Through this coffee daze, I'm lucky to always have this guy right beside me drinking lots of coffee and talking about life and traveling to warm places. Until then,

Xoxo, Jacklyn
