I do recognize the fact that this is probably the most anti-Valentine’s Day outfit one could possibly assemble. It’s not girly, it’s not red or pink, it’s not lacy, it’s not short or low, and it’s not easily taken off (!). I suppose it is a subconscious rebellion against a day that I’ve never been fond of, but am even less so as a newly single woman.
While I could never condemn a day that celebrates love, I disagree with the way our society goes about it. ONE DAY ONLY, to show your significant other that you love them… with a lot of money. I find it ridiculous and unattainable, and even when I was in a relationship, it wasn’t something I ever put a lot of emphasis on.
So today I will celebrate all the people I love, including myself (because how can you love someone else without loving yourself?). I won’t spend any extra money (although wine will be present) and I will spend it with my family and friends, all of whom I love and without whom I couldn’t have learnt to love myself.
anti Valentine’s Day!!
Oh and the best part of this entire outfit is that the pants were $20…
