Today I’m partnering with three fabulous blogger friends: Jo-Lynne, Jennifer, Tania, to show you some cute Galentine’s Day looks. If you don’t know what Galentine’s Day is (and I didn’t until last year), let me fill you in.
While Valentine’s Day is all about loving and honoring your sweetheart, Galentine’s Day is about celebrating female friendships. It takes place the day before Valentine’s Day, on February 13th. I’m not sure how this extra holiday got started, but it has grown into a thing, and now lots of women are starting to plan some pretty fun and fabulous outings with their girlfriends!
I was recently out and about shooting some outfits in my neighborhood when I happened upon the cutest place called Lola Choco Bar and Sweet House. I love going out for tea with my girlfriends, but it’s hard to find somewhere cozy to go, so when I discovered this darling cafe, I was thrilled.
What a perfect place for a Galentine’s Day gathering, or tea with a friend, anytime. To be able to sit, chat, and laugh in such welcoming, homey surroundings with a hot drink and a tasty treat – well, that’s what friendship is all about!
What does one wear to a Galentine’s Day gathering? It’s so new that there are no guidelines, but my vote would be something casual, pretty, and feminine, like this lovely colorblock sweater. (*Canadians use this BR sweater link)
You know I’m a fan of bright colors and modern color combinations, so when I spotted this colorblock sweater at Banana Republic, I thought it said Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day to me! A fitted sweater like this always looks chic with bootcut jeans.
My favorite Michael Kors black suede booties with the gorgeous gold heels really turn up the glam for Galentine’s Day!
Pink, purple and red! It’s a bold, beautiful mix!
How do you like my purse? It’s from Kate Spade – no surprise there. They have the best bags! I was hypnotized by this delicate pink color and had to have this bag! It’s such a fresh, pretty color, and it’s the perfect size for me.
It’s a gorgeous spring bag, but heck, I’m using it now. It’s a great pick-me-up to get me through dreary February!
So what do you think? Will you be doing Tea or brunch, dinner, or drinks with your girlfriends on Galentine’s Day? At least you will have some ideas on what to wear!
