It’s that time of the year when we celebrate some of the most important relationships in our lives- whether it’s friends, partners, or even the one you have with yourself! (Self-love, anyone?). We’re talking about Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day! There are so many ways to spend quality time with the ones you love the most – and, of course, wearing some cute outfits!
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite activities along with most-loved outfit inspo.
1. Date Night
There’s nothing quite like a fancy meal on Valentine’s Day. It’s such a fun date idea since you get to enjoy a special meal together, and it’s an excuse to dress up! With date night, the options are endless! Explore your town and try something new or go to a favorite spot and spend time together. You can add another fun activity like bowling or mini golf to your night out.
Of course, we’d recommend going sophisticated for this one. The Drama Print Classic Dress is our top choice for the wow factor. We also love the Split Neck A-Line Dress paired with the Faux Pearl Torsade Necklace for an elegant look.
2. A Cozy Meal In
Another way to celebrate friendships and relationships is by cooking together. Make it unique by picking a recipe you wouldn’t normally go for or recreating the first meal you had together.
Cooking a meal together is a great way to bond and make time for each other while enjoying a delicious meal. Look for recipes to make together, or you split up responsibilities and make it a Sous Chef soiree. Don’t forget to make a delicious dessert to indulge your sweet tooth.
If you decide to forego cooking, baking can be a fun way to spend time together and have some yummy dessert. You can dress up for a night in with an outfit like a Cold Shoulder Tunic in black paired with some statement accessories like the Valentine’s Day Red Chandelier Earrings and Travelers Classic No Tummy Pants for a classic look with a pop of color.
3. A Spontaneous Day Trip or A Virtual Tour
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to plan a little getaway. You can go on a spontaneous day trip somewhere nearby, like a cute seaside town or somewhere with great hikes or views. Or you can look for fun road trip ideas near your city if you’re short on time. Get your map out and start exploring!
And if you’d rather stay put, why not explore another country from the comfort of your home? Many companies offer fun virtual tours to far-off destinations over Zoom. Whether you’re driving somewhere close or walking the streets of Rome (virtually), you’ve got options. For travel-based plans, we love pairing a cozy top like the Floating Hearts Sweater with something fun like the Embellished Cuff Pull-On Jegging for a casual glam look.
4. Galentine’s Day Outing
While traditionally Valentine’s Day is all about romance, it’s also the perfect occasion to celebrate the friendships in your life! Whether you’re going out for brunch together or checking out a new wine bar, there are plenty of ways to celebrate together.
Even if you’re not big on the occasion itself, think of it as an excuse to get friends together. For a casual yet fun outfit, we love looks like the adorable Touch Of Cool Heart-Print Wedge Tunic, and pair it with leggings and cute earrings like the Silver Chain Tassel Drop Earrings.
5. Get Artsy
Paint and sip classes have become increasingly popular, and there are tons of different options available depending on interests. You can do traditional watercolor paint and sip, or even ceramic paint and sip to create unique keepsakes for the day.
Or if you’re looking for a fun, creative at-home art activity, paint by numbers kits are always super fun. You’ll create a gorgeous piece of art for your home and have a great experience doing it! For artsy activities, you’ll want to be comfortable yet stylish. We’d recommend something a little more whimsical like the Heart- And Animal-Print Blouse paired with the Brigitte Slim Ankle Pants for a sleek yet fun look.
We hope you have an unforgettable Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day) with lots of love to celebrate. And of course, we’re always here to help you find the perfect outfit to celebrate these occasions. Make sure to check out our Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook for more outfit ideas.
