I am so excited to finally share my Valentine’s dress with y’all! Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday. Like with most holidays, I’ve got my own annual traditions. I always get candy and a little stuffed animal from my mom, I always celebrate with my girlfriends, Dago and I exchange cards, and, for the last six years, I’ve gifted myself a pretty new dress (see, with caution, 2012
). Sometimes I spend a lot of time searching through dress after dress to find just the right one, and other times I see something and don’t bother searching further because it’s perfect. The latter happened this year, back in December when I was scrolling through new arrivals on ModCloth. Blush pink, unique lace, fun sleeves — it’s everything I didn’t know I was looking for!
I always plan on wearing my Valentine’s dress to at least one upcoming wedding, and I’m so excited to wear this beaut to a wedding later this month! I’ve actually got three weddings in the next three months, so I think I may remix it at least one more time (crossing my fingers for no tights in March!). I love that this dress is perfectly appropriate for a wedding, but I can also wear it for dinner with the girls. I’ve got a work trip to New Orleans next week, and I’ll be packing this for a night out! I have a feeling I’m going to get the most wear out of this dress of all the Valentine’s dresses I’ve bought in years past.
ModCloth is my fav place to shop for dresses, so it’s no surprise they have a killer selection of Valentine’s-ready frocks. Here are a few of my favorites to help you celebrate Valentine’s or Galentine’s in style!
Do you have Valentine’s or Galentine’s plans this year? What’s your favorite way to celebrate the holiday?
