HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!.....it's that time of the year filled with flowers, chick flicks, every shade of red and pink as far as the eye can see, chocolate everything, and special notes to the ones you love. For so many people they hate this time of the year because they don't have someone "special" to spend it with and they are surrounded by so many happy couples that are in love.
Nevertheless, while I don't have a special someone to spend the day with, I have always loved Valentines Day, and over the years I have embraced this day for celebrating my singleness and being happy with where I am at in life.
To often we get so caught up in what we don't have, that we forget the incredible things we do have, like time to ourselves, free weekends, hours to read books, and so much more. Sure, we can all admit that we wish we could make memories with someone else, but for the time being making memories with ourselves is so very important, and we should cherish it! Speaking of books, I started the tradition last year of buying myself books for Valentines Day, because what better way to celebrate yourself and happiness than increase your library.....am I RIGHT, or am I RIGHT!!!
With that being said, for those of you who have a special someone, give them an extra kiss and write them a sweet note to show them how much they mean to you. And for those of you who don't have a "special someone" (like me), I hope that you don't spend the day sad for what you don't yet have, but instead appreciate the incredible things you do have in your season of singleness.
I thought this special day called for all the ladylike and classic details, so I pulled out my favorite Hannah Everly polka dot skirt and paired it with a blush pink cashmere Talbot's sweater. I added the feminine details of a black velvet bow and sued flats and packed my Cat clutch with all the necessities (because what better accessory for a blogger on Valentines day, than to carry a cat clutch). Of course no Valentines Day look is complete without a bunch of flowers and read lipstick:)
Now, I am off to eat chocolate ice cream, read one of the books I gifted myself, and probably watch my traditional Valentines Day movie "The Lost Valentine."
