I know it is so trendy to hate Valentines Day. All the cool kids are doing it. They all ignore it and call it a Hallmark Holiday. But you know what, I am NOT on board with that train. I, Mallory Kirsten Lutz Kammeyer am a Holidayaholic. I love them all. But Valentines Day, well any holiday that encourages eating copious amounts of sweets (cupcakes, cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, OMGOMGOMG) and large glasses of champagne and wine in public, without judgment. Oh I am so in.
The thing I am not in for, the crowds. I am not a very patient person. In fact I am downright impatient. And the thing that makes my skin crawl the most (other than stand still traffic) is waiting for tables. In crowds. Of over-perfumed people. No thank you.
So this year, instead of getting in line at an over stuffed restaurant, my parents and Joel and I are celebrating Valentine’s Eve. Here is how you do it: You just go out on the evening before Valentine’s Day and then do everything the same as you would if it were Valentines Day. It’s amazing. And genius.
This is what I am wearing today and into the evening. I love it because it is wonderfully red but also such fun. The top and skirt are both from Target, both sale rack finds and both so stinkin cheap.
Don’t you worry though, we will still have our own little celebration tomorrow. Just in our own house. Where we rarely have to wait for a table. Unless Harvey is entertaining. But he isn’t seeing anyone this year. So we should be good.
Total cost of outfit: Top-$8.99//Skirt$5.99/
Happy Thursday love birds.
