Love is in the air. Or at least, it should be! After all, today is Valentine's Day. For some, it is a time of romance and laughter. For others, a time of dread. Often naysayers focus on the obligation aspect, the pressure of it all, or perhaps not having a partner. Personally? I love any excuse to celebrate and enjoy a holiday. Single, taken, or in between...Valentine's Day is a wonderful time to celebrate all things happy and joyful. It is a time to be with loved ones (whether that means family, friends, or a romantic partner) and make special memories. To show how much you care. Are you ready to celebrate? To enjoy this oh-so-fabulous holiday? Here is a little inspiration to kick-start your day....
First thing is first. It just isn't Valentine's Day without a healthy dose of style inspiration! The mood board above is all about softness, elegance, and romance. It is my ideal outfit for the season. There is a lovely pink lace dress (because lace is always a good idea), a warm nude lipstick, soft pink blush, simple black shoes with a pop of sparkle and shine, a simple pair of heart shaped earrings, and a warm elegant perfume to finish it all off. This look is exactly what I wish I was wearing this Valentine's Day. It has everything I love most about this particular holiday: softness, love, and romance.

Though I wish the outfit above was my ensemble for today...I am going for something casual-glam instead. Why? I'll be out and about celebrating. My husband decided to surprise me with concert tickets for a band we love (Lifehouse) at a casino in Niagara Falls. That means a romantic night full of wonderful music followed by a couple of days wandering, exploring, and being together. Nothing could be better! This is one Valentine's Day I am truly excited for.
"The best thing to hold onto in life is each other."
- Audrey Hepburn
Whether you are travelling, staying in, or heading out for a romantic dinner, the most important thing to remember is that you are loved. This is a day to celebrate love, joy, and life. So tell the people in your life how much they mean to you. Wear some red or pink. Eat candy hearts. This day is yours to celebrate and enjoy!
"Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier."
On that note, Happy Valentine's Day. Wishing you a fabulous day full of love and of course, chocolate. Be sure to sound off in the comment section below and tell me how you are celebrating this romantic holiday.
