I know that a lot of fashion bloggers are all ramped up for Valentine’s Day and are showing off festive outfits (myself included), but I wanted to take a quick minute to chat about my feelings on Valentine’s Day since a lot of people have actually asked me what I think about it.
To be completely honest with you, it’s a double edged sword with me. I like but at the same time though, I’m one of those firm believers that you shouldn’t be appreciated only on one day.
Showing love and being appreciated doesn’t mean flowers, a card, and some chocolate/gifts. It’s about the little things, like washing the dishes, feeding the dogs before I get home, hanging up a picture I’ve been dying to hang up, taking my blogging photos, letting me sleep in, bringing me soup when I’m sick, picking something up at the store because I forgot to stop on my way home, etc. I could keep going haha, but I’ll stop there. I feel loved and appreciated every day, that going out on Valentine’s Day, or even staying in is just another day but with a little extra spunk.
The first Valentine’s Day that I spent with my fiancé was your cliché, right out of a movie styled date. He showered me with gifts, flowers, dinner, and even told me to dress up (he wore his suit!). He knew that I wasn’t crazy about Valentine’s Day so he wanted me to have at least one cliché Vday in my life. Since then we don’t do anything crazy. We might get each other a card and maybe go out to dinner but we don’t make it a huge deal. We are pretty simple though.
Ok, now that I got that off my chest, I wanted to talk about my outfit. The top is from Style Best. If you saw last week’s post you already saw me talk about Style Best and how I feel about them. Which, of course is a positive post and experience. The top I’m wearing is super cute and great quality. My only complaint is it’s a little shorter than I had expected. I’m also super tall, so maybe that has something to do with it. I paired it with my new pants and hat from Old Navy. I’m so ready for spring and I honestly am so over winter and the winter clothing lol. I’m going on strike Mother Nature!
