I went on an early Valentines date this year! I know, I know… I’m a little ahead of you with the celebration shenanigans. But, my husband and I won’t be together on the actual day due to our travel schedules, so we decided to celebrate early. Work can be so hectic and drains the life out of you sometimes. So, tonight we played make-believe that it is our Valentine’s Day. A romantic dinner date is such a great idea to sit down and take a moment to relax, enjoy, and reconnect.
I decided to play a little dress up that evening. I chose this navy blue satin dress from Forever 21. Who doesn’t loves satin fabric? I certainly do… you can never go wrong with how soft and cool the fabric feels against your skin. The open shoulders and long sleeves add a touch of glamour and style of this dress. My favorite part is the self-tie waist which creates a flattering and elegant body shape. This dress is also a great pick for any formal occasion. If you plan on going out on Valentine’s day, I have attached few other options below that you might like for inspiration.
LOVE- I think this is the most beautiful word I know. Love does not come with shape, color, or gender. It is the most universal form of what makes us human. Valentine’s Day is just a reminder that no matter how hectic life can be… it is important to take time to breathe and remember what is really important. Listen to your heart, appreciate the ones that love you, and remind them that they are loved. After all, “Love does not make the world go ’round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” – Franklin P. Jones
