outfit of the day

V-Day Advice and fashion tips.

I’m not big on Valentine’s day. Mostly because of the way girls/ women make it a big deal, whether they are single or attached. If in a relationship it somehow becomes this big adieu about what their man will do for them this year. Will he get them jewelry, chocolates, a teddy bear or dare I say… something in the “little blue box”???? And if he doesn’t send you flowers at work he’s dead meat. From experience, it sucks to be the only lady not getting flowers at work on Valentine’s day, but that’s me playing into the hands of the holiday marketers.

Sad single women are even worse… the melancholy, doldrums of all the single ladies on Valentine’s day is pathetic, trite and quite frankly, puke worthy.

The best Valentine’s day participants are the single and ready to mingle types who don’t give a fuck. I loved going out with my girls, sometimes with the intent of having an “anti-Valentine’s day” celebration, but it was all in good fun and always humourous. Besides, there’s plenty of time to spend Valentine’s day with your true love once you actually find them. So what’s the point of going out with some lame guy just for the sake of not being alone?? Go out with the people you truly like and want to spend time with, have fun and who know’s, maybe you’ll get struck by cupids arrow.

Here are some of my fave pieces to where out this V-day from Revolve.

For a more casual look…

Fallen Hearts Tee  paired with satin joggers, a mini skirt or your fave pair of going out jeans and some kick ass heels make for the perfect going out look.

Dusters are in, and I’m not talking about the feather kind.

I’ve always loved extra long sweaters and jackets, or “dusters”. There’s something very elegant about this look and it’s been a really hot trend this season. I’m on the search for one that it unique, chic and edgy and here’s a few I came across that fit the mold…

  1. This one from Shein.com is so elegant and cool! I love how they styled it with a head scarf and big sunnies. So chic.

2) Kimono’s are a great way to sport this look. This one is from Nordstrom and a perfect transition piece for spring.
