Grown up Valentine’s Day is fun and all, I mean there’s chocolate, food, and a cozy cuddle buddy. BUT there are some downfalls– for the coupled up, it means fixed menus, over-priced entrees, a need to find some kind of gift, I mean how creative can you get with a box of chocolates? And for the singles, as much as you try to, you can’t ignore the fact that it’s Valentine’s Day. Window displays are filled with hanging hearts and red dresses, coffee shops are selling those adorably delicious heart shaped cookies and you’re just like WHY ME!?
It’s ok let’s breathe, take moment, and return to our childhood years where everyone received a Valentine AND candy. They were not so secretly delivered to your own heart decorated shoe box while you were getting high on sugar all day, only to return home to well received hugs from your forever Valentines–Mom and Dad, BLISS.
Well today while reminiscing over the simpler days, I resorted to a more conservative and subdued Valentine’s Day look. This wine colored long sleeve dress reminds me of my childhood dresses (minus the low neckline). It’s simple and classic making it bearable to wear out in these freezing temps. I paired it with a chunky statement necklace and decided to call it a day. It’s a perfect no fuss look, and one that will win over your love bug.
Chin up! Valentine’s Day isn’t so bad, just find a cuddle buddy and some wine…or just wine
