Leading up to Valentine’s Day, it is no secret that everyone is thinking about what they’re going to be wearing, right? With a commercial holiday like this, everybody is bound to obsess over their outer appearance and ultimately end up feeling bad about themselves. However, I am depressingly lucky, given the fact that no boy seems to like me, woohoo! I’ll most likely end up watching Grace and Frankie while eating Halotop “ice cream”. Wow, I’m only in seventh grade, but I’m already envious of the, “I’m happy, beautiful, and not single.” stereotype this holiday portrays. I think we all should learn, though, that you don’t need a date for Valentine’s Day, because you’re special, regardless of what social media or other’s may say. Instead, put on a cute outfit and take soulful pictures of yourself! From the top picture, you can see that I’ve done this before, it really works, lol.
For my look, I decided to go a bit more feminine, with this dress from Zara. However, the unique check print, almost mimicking one you would find on a suit, made it a bit more interesting than your classic Valentine’s Day dress. Many people are predicting taupe as a huge trend in 2019, so I thought that I might try it out. My overall verdict? Amazing! This is such a classic color that works with any skin tone!
To keep me warm, I decided to layer this stunning top from Gap underneath. With its sand color, it paired well with the dress and I absolutely loved the sleeves. Since the top part of the dress was tighter, the sleeves worked well to offset this. When layering, you want certain layers to be less tight than others, so as to add more interest.
Finally, I once again reached for my white converse. Honestly, I can’t make up up an excuse as to why I wear them so often beyond the fact that they are such a simple, elegant piece! They worked particularly well with this outfit since they balanced the feminity of it all.
Well, that’s all I have to say. By the way, I sincerely hope that all of you have a spectacular Valentine’s Day, whatever the circumstance.
