LOVE, A Valentine’s Day Post

tina

It is coming up! That holiday that you either love or you hate: Valentine’s Day. In my younger years I wanted to be JUST like all of my coaches. One of them said she wore black every year on Valentine’s Day, so I promptly adopted this new style and negative attitude about the “Hallmark Holiday.”  As much I love Ashley, I have started to slowly add back red and pinks into my V-Day wardrobe as well as a card and gift or two. One might think because of my recently engaged self I am SUPER pumped about the holiday and LOVE from my significant other, but the truth is the holiday has been growing on me in the past few years because I realized it is a time to celebrate Platonic Love as much as it is to celebrate Love from a significant other; Love with friends, family, co-workers, your pets, and yourself. So whether or not you have some one to smooch on February 14th, you totally need some of these awesome gifts to give your pal or buy for yourself!

Nameplate Necklace, Gold or Silver Plated $248

These are the best gift. I talked my fella into buying me the monogram one a few years ago and I just got the nameplate from my mom for Christmas! I wear one of them everyday. Seriously. They are the BEST. Great gift for the newly wed with new initials or from the kiddos to Mom with their name on it so she can have them with her all the time!

Outlaw tee, Southward Apparel $77.

This is for sure what I will be wearing this Valentine’s Day. It says it all. Whether you are a rebel in general or just for the day. Plus it is so comfy.

Navy and Pink Plaid button up, $98.

We love any plaid and any button up here at Proposals, so this top was the perfect combo.  A little side note, this style has been seen on celeb Anna Feris, and we all want to be as funny and goofy as her. Buying this top will probably help!

Now, who doesn’t love some Bella Dahl? We have tons of options for you if this is your favorite brand! Here are some of my favs for V-day.

Now for those of you like me that are recent converters to the whole YAYY Valentine’s Day, a small pop of color might just be the ticket for you. Add some jewelry to spice up your look! And for you significant others, just FYI, you can never go wrong with Kendra Scott!

And my last gift for you or a friend suggestion is monogram rain gear. What better way to show your love for yourself than rocking your initials on your umbrella, your boots, or a rain jacket?! Or on all three! Let’s get serious, I know us southern gals love our monograms!

Umbrella, $45. Boots, $120. Jacket $160.

So don’t be a grouch and let the holiday get you down! Even if you have a special someone, let’s be honest, most of them don’t really understand the holiday or know what gifts we want (hello chocolate=calories and swimsuit season is sooner than we want it to be). So send your significant other into to Proposals and we will get y’all hooked up! And if you are still nervous about what you might get on the big day, just send em in for a gift card!! If you are flying solo, wear something fabulous from here and give yourself a big HIGH FIVE because you are awesome.
