Can you guys believe its February this week? Me either. And what comes with February? New York Fashion Week (NYFW) and Valentines Day. It also will be the month of my website relaunch, which will be live this weekend! Since I'll be spending all week putting the final touches on my new site (its been a process, let me tell you!), I wanted to get this post up today in place of Makeup Monday as it'll be only post this week in preparation for my site launch for two reasons- 1. To get your Valentine's (or Galentines) gift ideas flowing; 2. To give you enough time to plan for Valentine's since its just 2 weeks away!
I know this day comes with lots of anxiety. However, I view Valentine's as a day of love, period. It doesn't matter who you love- it can be parents, family, friends, pets- all in addition to a significant other. Especially with the way our country is today, I think we should all be celebrating love for one another and ourselves this year and spreading love all over.
Whether you are looking for ideas to give to your S.O. for you, for your mom/aunt/sister/cousin, a BFF for Galentine's, or a Valentine's gift to yourself, I curated this gift guide based on pink, red, and hearts, because...well do I really need to explain this one? Red, pink, and hearts are the staple of this loving holiday, so in theme I have picked what I find to be some cute gifts that anyone can enjoy!
Valentine's Gift Guide:
Now on to Valentine's Style! Although David and I don't have plans yet for what we are doing (I'm thinking brunch or dinner the Sunday before Valentine's Day to beat the crowds!), I already have my outfit picked out. Based on the color pink, like the above gift guide, I will be wearing my custom hot pink Barbie Zophia CEO Skirt, because what a better time to wear it than for Valentine's when everything else is pink too!? I'll be topping the skirt with a lace cami, for an added feminine touch of romance, and bold leopard booties to add some edge to the look. Accessories? Obviously a pink purse to match my pink Zophia skirt, and of course a coat since temps have dropped again here in DC.
In addition to the gift guide above, I want to highlight one more gift option or gift request that would be perfect for Valentine's- a custom Zophia skirt! Whether you are looking to gift a skirt as a gift or gift it to yourself- this would make a wonderful, unique Valentine's present. To learn more or purchase a gift card or CEO skirt, contact Zophia.
