I won't lie, I'm not the biggest advocate for Valentine's day. I personally don't really believe in a holiday that mandates affections or makes anyone feel inadequate. However, I do love an excuse to dress up or to dress to a theme.
Now, if you're going to dress for the holiday, you need to do it right. Just a pop of red will do fine, you don't need to look like the valentine's day candy aisle. Though I think the most important rule is to dress appropriate for what you are doing. This particular look would be great for a hip restaurant lounge or maybe even a chill concert venue, perhaps a date night at City Winery, a cool venue I really like.
This year I'm just simply focusing on the love: the love of my life, loving myself to follow my dreams, and just taking each day to fill it with all the love and positivity I can. Because, that is what it is about, not giant stuffed bears or five-dollar pieces of paper that tell someone how much you love them. So love everyday, and look great while you do it!
