The Perfect Valentines Day Dress

A more accurate title to this post for me would be to switch Valentines with Galentines (where are all the other single ladies at?), but that doesn't mean I don't get to celebrate the holiday! If you've been following my blog for the last few years you'll know that my parents always made Valentines Day special for my sister and I one way or another. Whether it was sending care packages to us in college or just a little box of chocolates, I never felt that it was something that I was to be left out of just because I was single. Even though my parents are gone, I'm still going to celebrate just the way they taught me to.

Dress: Target | Cat Purse: Kate Spade | Cut-Out Heels: Nordstrom RackSimilar | Monogram Necklace: Brook & York (size large) | Sunglasses: Marshalls, Similar | Bracelet: Kendra Scott | Earrings:Old, Similar | Lip Color: YSL #57 | 

This holiday isn't just for couples, but for friends and family too. It's a day to celebrate love, so why not celebrate with ALL the people you love? This year I'll most likely be having brunch with a few of my closest friends and I wanted to share this sweet lace dress I picked up just for the occasion. The best part is that it's under $30! I honestly wish I had more opportunities to wear this dress out because I just love it so much. There's just the right amount of lace here that it isn't overwhelming, but not so little that it doesn't make a statement. I grabbed it at Target, and I've got to say I've been obsessed with the new fashion lines that they've added recently!! Seriously, if you haven't been to your local target lately, I highly recommend checking it out. 

I also want to mention this ADORABLE kate spade cat bag! My friends all pitched in and bought it for me for my birthday and I. Am. In. Love. If y'all know me at all, you know I have a huge love of cats and even have my own little fluff ball Henry so the Kate Spade cat line has been something on my mind for a while. I've always been a loyal Kate Spade fan, but since her bags are a little pricey, they aren't something I can usually afford. The second I saw this bag I knew it was something I would want to save up for, I mean hello! It's a black cat bag for the girl who LOVES black cats! But unfortunately it kept getting sold out! I'm so thankful for my friends for such a generous gift. Besides the fact that I'm a crazy cat lady obsessed with this bag, it also just makes for an awesome everyday purse. It's the perfect size and has three separate pockets that makes organizing a breeze! 

Maybe I got a little carried away with the cat purse description...but the point is Valentines Day is meant to be a day where you can express the love and gratitude you have for others. Get dressed, grab brunch or a romantic dinner and spend the day with the ones you love!

Do you have any plans for Valentines Day?

  1. I love the lace detail on your dress! And I'm totally with you on the idea that Valentine's day is all about celebrating all the people you love! I have a long tradition of sending handmade valentines to all my sisters and my brother--I love thinking up personal messages for them each year and making sure to write encouraging notes according to whatever is going on in their lives.
