If you’re like me, you’re single (and what most people call bitter) and probably hate Valentine’s Day. So if you know me on a personal level, you know this is my least favorite Hallmark holiday. Don’t get me wrong, love is such a beautiful thing. But all the extra emphasis on commercializing this day makes me sick, especially when acts of love and kindness should always happen. For us singles, it’s a reminder that we are just that..single. But aside from that, it takes away from the idea of true love and what it means to show someone that you love and care for them. I know there’s someone in the back screaming and calling me a hater… well #bitterbitchgang. I mean if you had all the reasons I have to fear men and commitment, you would too, but that’s neither here nor there.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more keen to the idea that Valentine’s Day does not need to be spent with a significant other. In the spirit of love, the point is to surround yourself with people you deeply care for. In this moment of my life, those people are friends. Both new and old, I can honestly say I have some truly incredible people actively in my life. So this Valentine’s Day, I’ve decided to partake in the “festivities” and co-host a cute potluck dinner for my single friends, because what’s better than one drunk single? MULTIPLE!
I noticed I’ve taken a slight break from fashion because at the time, other topics were more fitting and relevant to myself and my audience. But what better way to return than with lovely Valentine’s Day inspired looks? Today, I’m here to help y’all create a Valentine’s Day slay for ALL occasions — date night with bae, girls’ night out, dinner and a movie, you name it. Regardless of your relationship status, go out and have a ball! Enjoy this Valentine’s Day. Remind your significant other or your besties why you got connected in the first place. Live your best life. Do something fun and exciting, and do it in style!
