What to Wear to a Valentine’s/Galentine’s Party

Yesterday I partnered with Jo-Lynne Shane to bring you cute Valentine’s Day outfits for a date night with your sweetie. Today we thought we’d tackle what to wear on Galentine’s Day.

Galentine’s Day

When Jo-Lynne suggested this topic, my first question was, What the heck is Galentine’s Day?

I’ve been out of the loop because it’s a girlfriend celebrating girlfriends gathering that takes place the day before Valentine’s Day. Galentine’s Day outfits range from super casual to fancy party wear, depending on the type of get-together you are planning. It’s all new to me!

My idea of a great Galentine’s party would be afternoon tea at a cute teahouse , tucked away in a cozy corner with a few gals, having a big gabfest!

We’d be chatting, laughing, and maybe taking selfies together, and it would be very casual so that this fun pink sweater would be perfect. I love the whimsical French vibe. See the words J’Adore (I love you) embroidered on the shoulder?

My light-wash skinny jeans keep the outfit looking soft and feminine.

Pretty pink tops are everywhere this Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day. Did you see the gorgeous oversized pink sweater I posted this week? I also have another Galentine’s outfit you may like here.

Finally, Be sure to drop by Jo-Lynne’s blog and see what she’s cooked up to wear for this special gal-pal day!

  1. Oh my goodness, Deborah! I just discovered your blog, and thanks go to Tania for sharing your site in her blog today! I love your style and attitude. There are a lot of us women out here that are north of 40 who don’t want to look frumpy. The times they are a-changing,’ and style is ageless. Thank you, and I’m looking forward to following you!

  2. Coming to you via 50 is not old, and I enjoyed your blog. I, too, didn’t know what Galentine Day was. Thanks for the explanation. By the way, I loved the pink peonies in your photo.

  3. Hi Deborah! Tania sent me over. I had never heard of Galentine Day, but I love the idea! I think that is exactly what I would wear for a night out with my friends.

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
