What to Wear on Valentine’s Day, When You’re Not Really Celebrating Valentine’s Day

I can’t believe Valentine’s Day is coming up! In my house, Valentine’s Day is not a huge affair… Even, before the kiddo arrived, my husband and I would sometimes go out to dinner or catch a movie or, if I remembered, I’d give him a humorous (non-sentimental) card. Then Darling Daughter came along and Valentine’s Day really became a day for her… We’d get cupcakes and a card for her. Now that she’s in school full time it’s become all about choosing the “right” cards and candy to give out to her classmates… So, overall it’s not a big deal, but it still is Valentine’s Day after all, and it deserves some acknowledgement. So, if your family’s like mine, here’s a list of some things to do to “celebrate” V-day, along with outfit suggestions.

Watch a Movie with the Family- This year Valentine’s Day is on a Friday, ie- not a school night, but everyone is still exhausted from the week. You could pack up the family and head out to the movies, or avoid the frigid polar vortex temps and rent a movie. Either way, get comfy cozy with a pair of boyfriend jeans and this easy luxlight cardigan from the Gap.

Enjoy a Meal- Similar to the above, either take the family out or order in and enjoy a candlelit meal at home (we sometimes light candles at home and pretend we’re at a “restaurant”). Even if you decide to stay home, don’t slum it and wear the yoga pants, remember, it is Valentine’s Day… Wear a pair of stretch skinny jeans with this pearlized gem sweatshirt from LOFT.

Play a Board Game- My daughter’s really gotten into board games now and playing a game on a Friday night has become a bit of a tradition. So, if you’re going to be playing a game, comfort is key. Try these drapey cinched pants with a stylish vest from Old Navy.

However way you celebrate it, enjoy your Valentine's Day!
