Red Hot

Just because it's Winter does not mean you need to put away those off cold shoulder tops and mini skirts especially if you are in New York. The weather has been up and down and I have been relishing the days that are in the 50's and perfect for shedding the layers. I put this look together as another idea for Valentine's Day, my first one (seen here) was a more casual look perfect for a low-key romantic night like a paint night or a local wine tasting. This one has dinner or drinks/dinner and drinks written all over it. 

I love this cold shoulder bell sleeve top (only $16), it was something different for me to try and I love the burgundy color especially for Valentine's Day. I paired it with a suede mini skirt (shop similar styles here & here) and my favorite pair of black booties that have lasted me for a few seasons now. For a night out I tend to grab a smaller purse and this slate crossbody is one of my go-to bags (on sale now). 

There are so many great restaurants and bars to choose from especially in NYC so I am narrowing down the drink lists for you to ensure you have a great time (if this is the route you are taking).

1. Temple Bar NYC Located in Soho, Temple Bar not only has the perfect ambience for Valentine's Day but it also has the perfect array of house cocktails and small plates (for those who like to share)!

2. The Tippler This might be one of New York's greatest secrets...nestled in a cellar space underneath Chelsea Marketplace, The Tippler is one of those spaces you take someone you want to impress. Be mindful that they are first come first serve and don't take reservations but the visit is well worth it!

3. Lela Bar Located on Hudson street in NYC this wine bar has over 350 wines on reserve + daily specials. It's pretty, it's romantic and it's just a perfect spot to spend Valentine's Day.
