Valentine’s Day isn’t usually my thing, but it’s kind of amazing how much pastel pink stuff I’ve bought recently. Maybe I’m subconsciously prepping for the occasion?🤔 But since I’ve been in a long distance relationship for almost 10 years now, I try not to put too much pressure on myself to celebrate the holiday since more often then not, I’m in a different city than the SO. But I can’t have all these pink clothes go to waste now can I?😏
With the inception of Netflix and chill (like actual chill, not “chill”), it’s sociably acceptable now more than ever to spend a cozy night in. Crowds and expensive fancy food is overrated anyways. Well, crowds are at least. And I usually prefer to be surrounded by huge piles of blankets instead of a tall wall of people. Please don’t elbow me in the face accidentally…🤕
Anyways, cozy and cute are not mutually exclusive. Picked up this light pink knit sweater and it’s the perfect long cardigan to snuggle up in. Pair with stretchy leggings and fuzzy socks and you’re ready to binge watch Friends for the millionth time. Bonus: You get 2 pigs as friends.🐷🐷
And let’s say by some miracle, I actually end up going out for Valentine’s Day. Maybe during Valentine’s Day weekend I’ll go to an art gallery or do dinner and a movie with some friends. Either way, might as well dress it up a smidge to show how special it is to actually have me out and about.😬
While in Hawaii, I picked up this faux leather shift dress from the Zara sale. I love that even though it’s pink, it still reads a little tough because of the texture. And to not make everything too sweet, decided to pair it with a bomber and booties. Substituted my warm blanket for a turtle neck and added matching pastel accessories to complete the look.
I’ll be honest, I felt a little bit like a Pink Lady that day.💁🏻😎
Happy Valentine’s Day! Go out and fill the world with pastel pink-ness!💕
