It’s that time of the year again. Yup, January definitely breezed by as usual, making way for one of the most “romantic” days of the year – Valentines Day. While several people, especially couples who have defined their relationships, normally look forward for this special day, many people also dread it because of the pressure and stigma that come with the holiday. Some, meanwhile, spend Valentines Day with friends and family. Additionally, valentines Day is not just the popular subject of many romantic comedy films, it has also emerged as a medium of empowerment for women these past few years. Women, in particular, have established their ownership of the day by celebrating it with girl friends, coining the term “Galentines Day.” So, this year, whether you are going out for the typical Valentines date night with your significant other or spending it with friends, here are some Valentines outfit ideas that are fun, flirty, and most importantly, confidence-boosting!
Last week, I published this reel on my Instagram showcasing a handful of Valentines date outfit inspos to give you some idea of what you can wear. Of course, I decided to play with the usual Valentines day shades of red and pink. Let’s take a look at each of the outfits. Note that all of these pieces were already part of my wardrobe for years. Remember that you don’t have to purchase new items to look good during the rare times we go out nowadays.
Answer honestly: do you think that wearing a single-color outfit is boring? If you answered yes, then I believe it is time to change your mind. Not only are monochromatic outfits easy, simple, and gorgeous, I personally find them very form-flattering. Plus, when is a better time to play around with single-hue layers than during the winter? So, if you’ve always wanted to try wearing a one-color outfit but you are worried that you might not pull it off, then this is your lucky day. I’ll provide some tips on how to achieve that balance between plain and striking. I’ll also provide some examples of monochromatic winter outfits that you can rock!
2020 has been such a long year, but it is almost over! I know that I am not the only one who has had such a difficult year. However, despite everything we faced and experienced this year, I think that it is still worth it to celebrate the small blessings. So, even though we will be celebrating the holiday season a little differently than the past few years, don’t you think it is worth the effort to get out of our sweats and wear something a little cuter? You do not even have to be too extra with your ‘fits! After all, we are just going to sit in the living room. So, if you feel a little lazy, but still want to look cute, here are some fun and comfy Holiday OOTD ideas.
When I started this blog, some of my friends suggested I write a petite fashion do’s and don’ts. While I am still planning to create an ultimate petite styling guide (watch out for this!), I think it’s really important to address some myths about styling a petite body frame first.
TBH, a lot of these misconceptions are written by bloggers or fashion writers who do not know how to style. Yes, I said what I said, and I meant what I said. The truth is, there are a lot of styling workarounds for these misconceptions. Additionally, not all petite body frames are the same; so many petite girls can rock outfits that are perceived as not-so-petite-friendly. Instead of telling you, let me show you what I mean. Yes, sis, I have proof!
One thing you need to know about me is that I am a huge clothes repeater! However, I try my best not to repeat my outfits too much and instead play around with the pieces I already have. The secret to not purchasing and wasting too many clothes while still staying chic and stylish is to invest in a few quality and versatile wardrobe staples that you can style a million ways.
