I have a confession: Valentine’s is my favorite holiday. It’s 2015 and I’m tired of hiding it. People say it’s overrated or sappy or commercial. For me, Valentine’s is an extra special excuse to remind people I love them — all kinds of people! Valentine’s specifically makes me feel close to my mom, who has bought me a box of candy, a card, and a stuffed animal every year since I was little. I also loved being able to write cute notes to my friends in school on Hello Kitty cards and give the cutest stickers to show my admiration for the girls I wanted to be friends with. Of course, it’s also a fun chance for the bae and I to have a date night and maybe do something cute for each other too (see what we did last year here!).
I’m a girl who’s big on traditions. Like I said, every year, my mom buys my a stuffed animal for Valentine’s, and it’s one of the highlights of my year. Another Valentine’s tradition I cling to is buying myself a new dress (2014, 2013, 2012). I’ll always look for an excuse to dress up, but Valentine’s makes me excessively excited to get decked out in romantic pinks and reds. Like most do for Halloween, I start planning my outfit for the big day weeks in advance. Here are some of the dresses that I’m considering giving my heart to this year!
I have scoured the Internet for the cutest V-Day dresses, and these are my top six. One of the specifications for this year’s dress is that I want to be able to wear it to the weddings on my calendar for 2015. This worked so perfectly with last year’s dress, so I thought it would be a fun shopping challenge to give myself.
Being totally honest, I’ve already ordered one of these dresses. Crossing my fingers and toes it works out! Which one do you think I bought?
