Nobody hates a cliché moment, more than I do…
I’d MUCH prefer chocolates, champagne, etc. on another night. Like, any other night. LOL. Just not February 14th.
Mind you, there was a time, a VERY long time ago, think high school, where Valentine’s Day was ALL the rage. Teddy’s, roses, candlelit dinners, giant cards, pink outfits, the whole nine yards. Hallmark was making a shit ton of money.
I mean, I think they still are.
But as I get older, I’m noticing that a lot of my friends aren’t getting suckered into this “holiday.” I like that we’ve realized that love shouldn’t be celebrated on just ONE day. It should be embraced daily, spontaneously, and whenever you feel like it.
That being said, many people do still celebrate Valentine’s Day. And that’s great. You do you. Just don’t be boring about it.
If you’re going to do Valentine’s Day, change it up. Introduce some cute, sassy, and chic outfits to the evening. Let’s leave behind the pink sweaters, and red dresses. Instead, do a bold red lip. You feeling my vibe?
Here’s what I’m loving for a non-traditional V-Day.
Okay, I know I just mentioned leaving behind the boring red dresses, however, in NO WAY is this floral shift dress, boring. In fact, it’s a real statement piece. The large floral print is super eye catching, and there’s something so sexy about the high neck. Obviously, with our winter you don’t want to be wearing this dress in the frigid cold, but pairing this with a pair of grey tights and tall boots, will do the trick.
