Celebrating Self-Love This Valentine’s Day in Eleven by Venus Williams
February is the unofficial-official month of love, with Valentine’s Day mid-month – and all the brands and marketers pulling out all the stops to remind us to buy roses, heart-shaped chocolate and wear all shades of pink and red available. I LOVE – and don’t mind the cheesy reminders one bit, I think it’s great to bring some joy and excitement to a cold Winter month. It kind of makes the month go faster – getting us closer to March – and Spring.
This Valentine’s Day, I want to remind you guys to celebrate our greatest love of all – self-love. Whether it’s making time to take yourself on a coffee date, go for a jog/run/walk to enjoy some fresh air, read your favorite book while soaking in a tub at the end of the day (with your favorite beverage), or (if you’re a mom like me) just getting 15 uninterrupted minutes of time in the morning to collect your thoughts and set your intentions for the day.
For today’s look, I’m actually styling a brand that reminds us that we’re all Elevens (out of Ten) – that we’re all amazing, strong, full of love, full of excitement and can attract only the best in life if we set our minds and thoughts to it – the true definition of self-love and the spirit of the month. It’s a brand called Eleven by Venus Williams – an athletic/lifestyle clothing collection that celebrates YOU every day.
The pieces I styled are equal part sporty and chic – and definitely bright and bold – so I added some structured accessories and elevated athletic boots to complete the look.
Here are the exact ingredients to this outfit formula, and how I styled it:
- The Cherry Tomato Track Suit. Now I’m typically not a matchy-matchy girl when it comes to track suits – but this color really called my name and I decided to go for it. You can also break up the pieces and style them separately (it also comes in “admiral navy” – and I would actually coordinate the navy pants with the red pullover to make it look purposefully mismatched but part of a set). The fabric is super soft on the inside and looks luxurious and sleek on the outside – making the track suit appropriate for running errands, lounging about AND working out. It’s the perfect athleisure set that commands attention to remind everyone you’re an ELEVEN girl!
- Elevated Hiker Boots. I shared an unboxing of these See by Chloe Shearling Hiker Boots on my IG recently – and styled them with 3 different looks – this being one of them. They’re really warm and very practical but chic at the same time. I love the platform and shearling trim – they are so cozy and not overly bulky. I found a lower-heeled version too – see below!
- Chic Shades. My Garrett Leight Calabar Sunnies with green lenses compliment the red suit (as red and green are color compliments – making each other pop).
- Structured Bag. I completed the look with my Polene Numero Un in Sage – it balances the ensemble nicely and the color is the continuation of the sunglass color – making the look come together. I styled it for a Fall outfit HERE – just goes to show how it works well with different types of outfits.
I hope this inspires you to try out a similar outfit this Winter!
As always, please feel free to share the outfits you create via Instagram, using hashtag #ModnitsaOutfit in your posts, and I’ll be sure repost them on my stories!
