It’s officially Valentine’s Day. It is 12:35 a.m. and I am just now getting around to writing this post because 1. I am a procrastinator and 2. I’ve been up all night dealing with theme issues with my blog because technology hates me. So we are giving up on the new theme for tonight and just going to get through this post.
There are three type of girls you see on Valentine’s Day. The girl who is “so in love with her boyfriend” and thinks everyone has to know. The girl who promotes Galentine’s Day over Valentine’s Day because #GalPals are where it’s at. And lastly, the girl who is single for life and has lost all emotion towards this so-called day of love. Gag. Aka me. (I usually am the image of the Galentine’s Day girl but due to my mood right now and the sake of this post having three parts, I’m going to claim the last option.)
Girl #1: Date night with her boy toy
This is the girl who actually has a reason to get dressed up because she has a date with an actual human and not just a tub of cookies and cream Ben and Jerry’s. Nothing screams Valentine’s Day more than a little red dress. You may of seen this dress on my Instagram last week after I snagged it at Lauren James. My favorite part is how flirty it is with the open back and bow detail.
Throw it on with a pair of your favorite strappy heels for a night on the town. Plus, everyone looks AMAZING in red. You’ll definitely be the center of attention all night long.
Girl #2: Galentine’s Girls Day
This is the girl who will probably have the most fun if we’re being honest. There’s nothing better then getting together with some of your favorite girlfriends for a night out. Head to dinner, try something new (my friends and I went to an escape room awhile back and it was SO fun and such a change from our usual night outs!), or even head to your local bar to catch some of the other single hotties who will be out that night. Maybe next year you can be girl #1 depending on how the bar goes haha 😉
For a night with the girls you want to be cute but still casual and comfy. I’ve been loving pastels lately, especially paired together! I wore this out with my girlfriend the other day and got so many compliments on this pink duster. Plus, it’s only $11 right now! What a dang deal! *praise hands*
This sweater and matching mini purse have also been two of my go-to’s lately! The sweater also comes in a baby blue color that is so adorable! Nordstrom never fails! I paired it with some gold jewelry because y’all already know that is my fav! You can’t get enough gold jewelry.
Girl #3: Single girl with no emotions
Okay, hello, my name is Megan and here is the story of my life. Just kidding, kind of. This is the girl who probably has zero plans and who’s phone has literally never been drier. Like, what is a boy and what are text messages? Obviously I’m being slightly dramatic. Girl #3 will most likely stay in with previously mentioned cookies and cream Ben and Jerry’s and binge watch sappy romance movies like The Notebook on repeat. Sound familiar?
While that sounds super appealing to me because it requires zero effort, I know some people hate the thought of staying in and go stir crazy. So here are a few things you can do instead:
1. I’m going to let y’all in on a secret on something that I did the other day, that in the past I never even would’ve considered doing. I went to see a movie BY MYSELF. *gasp* Seriously, last year me would have been mortified, but it was actually the best thing ever. So go take yourself on a date girlfriend. Plus, you don’t have to share the popcorn with anyone, so who’s the real winner here?
2. Have a spa day! Nothing makes you feel better than a little pampering, you deserve it! Getting a facial or going to get your nails done can make the biggest difference in how you feel so go get glam girl!
3. Head to the gym to get those endorphins pumpin! The gym rat that I am is already looking forward to how empty the gym will probably be tonight while everyone is forced to go on dates. You can spend the night growing that booty while everyone else is out having awkward small talk with a boy over a dinner date.
I found this shirt at Target the other day and HAD to get it haha! Bumble & Tinder, sponsor me? 😉
I hope that you all have an awesome Valentine’s Day no matter which girl you are from the list above! You deserve the very best!
