Will You Be My Valentine (Or Galentine?)
This year will mark the eighth Valentines Day that I am celebrating with my husband! This will also be the eighth year in a row where we spend Valentines Day making our should-be world famous chicken pot pies. (Let the drooling commence)
To be completely honest…I never dress up on Valentines day. On this holiday I am most content wearing matching pajamas, drinking red wine and falling into a food coma that only the perfect pot pie with a side of buttery garlic bread can deliver.
If I were to dress up, though, I absolutely would wear these pants. I honestly would wear them at home for our annual ritual if I didn’t think my pot pie food baby would cause an irreparable tear to the waist of my dear pants.
When I saw them I immediately knew they had to be mine. They are the clothing equivalent of a soul mate for me (too dramatic?)—and on a holiday, all about love—it’s really all a girl needs.
So, whatever your celebration looks like on February 14th, make sure you are getting dressed up for YOU, and no one else. Ultra violet pants aren’t your deal? No problem—wear that green faux fur jacket or orange mini dress out to dinner like it’s your J-O-B. Spending the night at home alone? Make sure to indulge in your favorite silky pajamas and the expensive bottle of wine.
As for me, I’ll be at home chowing down on pot pie. I guess I’ll have to save my purple pants for another special occasion 😉
