A Cute Valentine’s Day Sweater for Galentine’s Day Too!

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!

At this age and stage of my life, my way of celebrating Galentine’s Day would not be a big party. It would be more like a cozy grab-a-tea with a girlfriend or two at the local coffee shop for a fun-filled gabfest. In this case, I’d probably wear a pretty sweater with a festive Valentine’s vibe and a pair of cute jeans.

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. They are from @royaltyforme, and they’re a great fit!

Pretty pink tops are everywhere this Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day. Did you see the gorgeous oversized pink sweater I posted this week? Here are a few more to put you in a festive mood and wear out with your girlfriends or sweetheart anywhere you want.

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.
