Valentine's is right around the corner and this year I plan to spend it in a very laid back way. However I've been blessed with the opportunity to partner with Express to bring you some Valentines's day style inspiration that is versatile and for a galantine's as well as a romantic night out with your SO.
"..breaking societal norms
in the name of love"
Valentine's day as I've said in the past hold's a special place in my heart as it reminds me of my dad.
I'm a hopeless romantic so I love love and everything that surrounds this holiday. I also love that collectively as a society we're breaking societal norms that Valentine's day is for lovers. We're expressing our love and appreciation for ourselves, the people close to us, and that's what it's truly about.
Alright enough of the mushy stuff, for the past few months I've been partnering with Express. I had the opportunity to view their Valentine's and pre-Spring collection and this blouse caught my attention immediately! It's laced in the prettiest details from the deep sensual red color to the black heart details, and the pleats on the front of the blouse.
The blouse also features a low v neck detail which allows you to jazz up the outfit with stacked necklaces. I know the fashion police is probably going to come for me for mixing black and brown but in this mix it somehow paired well. My sister once told me "we know you, you like to break rules", so if I wasn't breaking rules then I wouldn't be true to myself. I paired the blouse with black trousers and a teddy coat because it's still very chilly outside.
"I'm a hopeless romantic...I love love"
However you plan on spending you Valentine's I wish you all a happy and love filled day, not only on that day but everyday! Love intentionally, love unconditionally, and love even when it hurts, because loving is truly a gift and one of the most beautiful things we get to do in our lives!
