Be My Anti-Valentine


Valentine's Day is a particularly special day for Sam and I because it's also our anniversary. For the last 5 years we have never been able to spend it together due to NYFW. Because of this, we've created a tradition of not celebrating V-Day in the typical fashion. We build forts and have staycations. We give each other non V-Day presents like sunglasses instead of flowers and pizza slices instead of chocolates. By doing something totally out of the norm we're able to personalize a holiday celebrated by the masses.  This year we finally get to spend our 7 year anniversary and Valentine's Day together. I can't wait to do something totally weird and anti-Valentine's Day. How do you celebrate Valentine's Day? 
P.S. This is also one of the looks I wore to NYFW.
Wearing: 
Sunglasses- Ray-Ban via Sunglass Hut, coat- Tibi, vest- Cynthia Vincent, dress- Tibi, jeans- Urban Outfitters, boots- Schutz, earrings- Lulu Frost, bag- 3.1 Phillip Lim

Haha such a fun post. We don't celebrate Valentine's day either, because we have anniversary a week after and that's when we have our special day, and it so much nicer without all this VDay madness!

We celebrate 44 years of marriage on V-day as well.... It has been quite the journey for sure!! Love to know we share at least one thing in common!! ; ) Loved this post and the outfit AND that growly side smirk facial expression, solidifies the fact that you have a great bond and connection with your man... a look you seldom display on your own in most of your posts!! : )

Diana said...

So sweet and cute, I wish you and Sam all the best for your anniversary. I don't really celebrate V-Day since I never have a honey during that time but if I was going to have an anti-Valentines day I would go out and have a non-romantic dinner (like eating ribs or wings something that's messy and not sexy lol) and just chill with some beers and loud music at the restaurant.

Your outfit is so cute, love the coat and pants!!

xoxo, Diana
