Single On Valentine's Day

Shop my outfit: similar romper, sandals

February 14th... the most awkward, over-rated, hallmark holiday to ever exist. And i'm single, again.

Being single on V Day can be rough...especially in the social media world. Everyone is posting cute pictures with their significant other, showing off their gifts, and gushing over how lucky-in-love they are. And I am over here with an entire pizza on my lap, watching every Nicholas Sparks movie ever made, and bawling my eyes out. SINGLE AF

With all joking aside, February 14th can be a day you dread, or one you look forward to, all depending on your relationship status. For me, it was always a day that I wished would never come. I don't need another reminder that I am single, thank you very much. 

However, this year I am choosing to look at it in a different way. It's supposed to be a day of love. No one ever specified who that love was supposed to be given to. Over the past few years in my journey of finding myself and becoming my own woman, I have learned one very important lesson: the most important relationship you'll ever have is the relationship you have with yourself. 

Therefore, this V day, I am going to celebrate myself. I am finally at a point where I can fully say I love myself and I think that is something worth celebrating. To all my single ladies, don't throw yourself a pity party because you're only a party of one. Instead, honor it, cherish it, and be proud of it. Focus on all the accomplishments you've made, the amazing woman you have become, and flaunt that sassy single girl swag. 

No matter what your plans are this year, who you're dating (or not dating), and whether you're dressing up or dressing down, remember to love yourself first. 

Okay onto the outfit... is this romper not the cutest?! It supports my pops of pink obsession quite well and adds that feminine touch. Plus, it's giving me all the spring vibes. It would be a perfect transitional piece since it has long sleeves and can be worn so many different ways. I would totally wear this to brunch with the girls or happy hour on a Friday night. What are your go to pieces for Spring?
