With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought I would get dolled up in the girliest outfit I could put together. Pink lipstick, lacy peter pan collar, bubblegum pink skirt, floral tights, and heart flats. Doesn't get any girlier than that in my book. I suppose I could've worn heels, but I'm just not a heels wearin' kind of gal. To complete this Valentine's Day look, I chose to pose and prance around in front of a mural that says "LOVE". How fitting is that?! I could not think of a better location for the occasion. I actually found this mural last night while driving around town aimlessly. Victor and I do that sometimes when we get bored. Driving around getting lost in your own city is fun, and in this case, you end up finding really neat spots to take pictures! As soon as we drove passed it, a lightbulb went off in my head, and I immediately started plotting my next outfit post! That sounds really silly when I say it out loud. Does that ever happen to you?
Despite this valentine themed post, I'm not too crazy about Valentine's Day. Yes, it's meant to be a day to show how much you appreciate all the special people in your life, but I feel like it's not all that special because EVERYONE out there is celebrating too, and then there's that pressure that you need to do something super romantic and get flowers and chocolate and blah blah blah. Why not show them how much you care all year round and not just on one day of the year? I'd much rather celebrate dates that mean something to me personally like yearly anniversaries because it makes me think about the beginning of our relationship and I get butterflies in my stomach all over again. Don't get me wrong, I still like the holiday and try to do something a little special outside of our regular routine, but I think it's overrated in general, and I am perfectly happy just staying at home, watching our favorite shows or listening to records, and eating a nice little home cooked meal. What do you like to do for Valentine's Day?
