Today I’m partnering with three fabulous blogger friends 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 color-block sweater.

You know I’m a fan of bright colors and modern color combinations, so when I spotted this color block sweater at the 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!

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.

  1. Hello! It is adorable and beautiful; I like how you combine these things. I want to wear something similar soon on Valentine’s Day, but I do not have cute clothes to wear on a date with my husband. I want to surprise him. I like your blog; you inspire me; I look forward to your posts, have a nice day!

    1. Thanks, Emma, for dropping by, and I’m glad you are getting inspiration. Sometimes seeing an outfit makes us realize we have something in our closet we can rework. My suggestion is to get into your closet and play around. You may be surprised with what you come up with1

    2. Hi Emma, Thanks for dropping by. I’m glad I’ve given you some inspiration. Sometimes seeing a new outfit makes you realize you have similar pieces you can rework. My advice is to get in your closet and play. You may be surprised!

  2. The sweater looks fabulous on you. I love the vertical lines! And those jeans look so classy and elegant; what a perfect fit, wish it was so easy for me to find perfect-fitting jeans, but something I’ve struggled with my whole life as I am petite.

    1. Hi Ellibelle, Not sure what price range you are looking for, but Madewell (at Nordstrom) has high-quality petite jeans that range anywhere from $110 – $150. Some prices may be lower if they are on sale. I know LOFT has a great little section too. The Banana Republic also carries denim for Petites, and they often have 40% off sales.

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
