Since Valentine’s Day is on a Wednesday this year I decided we could just celebrate it together the whole week?! How does that sound (haha)! No but really, I know a lot of people won’t be celebrating it until this weekend because you know, adulting.
If you’ve happened to read my letter to Late College Grads then you may have seen my dress I wore for my Graduation pictures. I actually never got a whole new outfit from that shoot because that dress was from Valentine’s Day! Last year I went on a winning spree where I sporadically won like three gift cards to Express. I used one to pay for this dress that was originally like $88!
Since then I have loved it so much and wanted to restyle it for you guys. There’s so many routes you can go with Valentine’s Day: soft and sultry or modest and conservative, just to name a few. I like to think I dress pretty modest for the most part, so this dress was a little sassy for me! My favorite part is the embroidery and I love the lace detailing on the sleeves. Lace and embroidery have been huge this season and seasons past, so if you haven’t tried the trend you absolutely must!
Now if you’re single reading this post and you just happen to be living vicariously through everyone around you this week I encourage you to treat yo self! It’s a random day we choose to show others we love them but it doesn’t only have to be relationship based! Surprise a relative, go get that manicure or massage you’ve been wanting, or lay in bed to catch up on your Netflix shows. What ever self love looks like to you, make sure you do that!
