February brings hearts, candy, and lots of love with the arrival of Valentine’s Day. However, for those single ladies out there, Galentine’s Day is the real holiday to celebrate. This holiday was coined by Leslie Knope of Parks and Recreation, one of my favorite feminist characters on television. For this year’s Galentine’s Day, a few of my friends, single and in a relationship, decided to head to a local breakfast spot near campus for brunch and lots of laughs. Can you say never-ending mimosas?
To celebrate this joyous holiday, I decided to stick to basics with a few pops along the way. I made sure to grab my favorite high-waisted black jeans. Hello smaller waist line! I stuck with a sleeveless high-necked crew top that is a perfect basic. To layer this outfit, I chose my favorite sweater snatched in Rome this January. I splurged big time on this sweater, but each euro was worth it. It keeps me warm and is just too adorable! As a lover of heels, it took all my strength not to grab a pair before heading out the door. Instead I chose these adorable black flats that are surprisingly comfortable! I love the pointed toe, perfect to dress up or dress down. Jewelry wise, I stuck to my favorite Kendra Scott necklace, simple diamond earrings, my Tiffany bracelet, and my crisscross diamond ring. I stuck my signature circular sunglasses on top of my head to keep my hair back and grabbed my oversize purse—complete with a pom-pom of course!
Thank you for checking in on me and my style! I hope you check in again next month to see what style is around the St. Thomas campus.
