Love is in the air. My teenage students were excited today. They were gossiping and chitchatting about Valentine's Day plans. It's the same thing every year around February 14. Hormones floating around the place, stolen kisses, giggles, a Valentine's Day card forgotten under a desk... I can understand how they feel. Many of them have started dating recently and are having that "first love" moment that -no matter the outcome- they will remember forever. Can you remember that time?
I guess that when you reach a certain age you start caring less and less about that. I don't like to take part in the gift giving tradition because that's what makes this a commercial celebration. However, I like to do something special like eating out. Since both my fiance and I are foodies, we take turns every year to choose a new place we want to try. It's my turn this year and we are going to this beautiful restaurant. I'm constantly searching for the restaurants with the best decor in Madrid and this is one of them. We hope the food will be delicious as well.
If you are on Instagram, you may have seen the term Galentine's Day popping up a lot in the last few days. I had never seen it before so I made a little research. It's a holiday that solely celebrates you and the love you have for your girlfriends. The term was coined in the TV show Parks and Recreation and it consists on leaving your significant other at home on February 13 and have brunch with your besties. Sounds like a great idea, right?
Now let's talk about the outfit. For the occasion I've chosen a casual but feminine outfit that combines salmon pink and navy blue. The seriousness of navy is contrasted with the sweetness of pink. This color combination tells a lot about my personality. I like my clothes to say I'm a sophisticated woman with a hint of sweetness because I'm still a child at heart. Needless to day, the outfit works for either Valentine's or Galentine's Day.
