Forget Valentine's Day, 2017 is all about celebrating Galentine's Day. What started out as merely a sitcom joke has now become an annual feminist celebration and I'm all for it too. Many women have jumped on board the idea that our female friendships are just as important (in some cases more so) than our romantic ones and therefore deserve to be celebrated. It's not just women, many brands are even beginning to capitalise on the holiday promoting all things #GIRLPOWER. In the past week, I've had several emails ping into my inbox with the subject Galentine's Day which indicates it's definitely something that's gaining momentum.
Being a single girl on Valentine's Day need not be a dreaded ordeal. Hoorah. As a single girl myself with zero V-day plans this is music to my ears. I need not feel embarrassed having no plans pencilled in the diary for the 14th February. There's definitely not a heart circled around today's date but I'm not bitter in the slightest. If anything I am happy that I'm happy being single and enjoying my single pringle status.
I may not have any V-day plans but that won't stop me from dressing for the occasion. This H&M wrap dress from their latest conscious collection to me is the perfect day-to-night number no matter what your Valentine's Day plans may be. Dressed down here with a pair of faux fur lined backless loafers(check out the Gucci vibes) this dress can also be paired with a heeled sandal or ankle boot for a more night time appropriate look. Whether it be dinner with your other half, cocktails with your single girls or a date this red frilly number will save the day and have you feeling fab. The great thing about the wrap over style is it flatters pretty much any body shape and the ruffles give it a gorgeous femininity, perfect for the V-Day celebrations.
So whether you're single or taken I hope you all have a Happy Valentines (Galentine's) Day!
