Pink & Lace Look for a Non-Traditional Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day has always been my favorite holiday. I’m such a die-hard romantic where all things lovey dovey, cute, sweet, and couple related makes me extra happy!

Even though every day spent with your significant other should be just as important as Vday, it is still fun to have a day solely dedicated to being over the top romantic!

With Valentine’s Day comes lots of pinks, reds, and whites. I’ve always seen Vday as a day to wear a dress and heels.

To prepare for the holiday this year I tried to go for a non-traditional look that is still romantic, but also a tad bit edgy.

I decided to pair a white, lace crop top from Forever 21, with a light pink poncho from Kerisma. Throughout the day numerous people asked was the top and poncho one piece and complimented my look for styling it as such! 🙂

With my top and poncho combo, I also wore brown Hudson jeans and black, military-style heeled boots from Nordstrom. I feel like this look was a perfect balance of chic, modern, and romantic.

Know Your Love Language <3

Let’s face it, dating is hard. Giving someone your undivided attention, sharing your personal thoughts and feelings with another person, and putting a lot time and affection into someone is not an easy task, but it can be done.

Knowing your Love Language can help make you and your significant other’s dating experience much easier.

What is a Love Language?

Your Love Language shows you your emotional communication preference, how you like to receive love from others, and shows whoever you are dating how they can love you in the best way possible.

There are 5 types of Love Languages:

Words of Affirmation: this Love Language affirms other people by using words.

Acts of Service: people who use this Love Language need a partner who shows that actions speak louder than words.

Receiving Gifts: what makes people feel most loved is by receiving little gifts from their significant other

Quality Time: these people seek and need undivided attention from their partners

Physical Touch: with this Love Language, people believe that touching is the best way to show love to one another

Knowing your Love Language and knowing your partner’s can help you both express affection to each other in the best way possible. These Love Languages can help you connect with your significant other with a sense of intimacy and fulfillment.

Once you both know how to properly love each other, you two will have a better understanding of one another, will have better communication, and your love life overall will improve.

Now don’t think single people should be left out of this Love Language test. Being single is an even bigger and better reason to know your Love Language. Once you discover how you should be and want to be loved, when dating, you can seek out someone who will satisfy your needs.

My Love Language is mainly Words of Affirmation with a close runner up being Quality Time.

Take the Love Language Test here and if you are in a relationship, get your significant other to take it as well! Get on the right track to improving your love life ❤
