Part Two of my New York Fashion Week: Style Rundown is dedicated to my valentine’s day look. This look in particularly was special to me because I decided to be my own valentine this year. Sounds a little cray-cray, I know.
My goal was to focus on self-love and finding my true source of happiness rather than trying to look fab for my fashion shows that day. Even though my Mr. Right hasn’t found me yet, I wanted to give myself a head-start on appreciating the beauty that God has given me both inside and out.
I believe that when you find contentment in being single and enjoying this season of your life, you can truly take advantage of the opportunities that are meant to be experienced while single without feeling lonely. It also helps you to break away from thinking others can complete you and feeling like you have to receive attention from someone to be accepted.
This year, I decided to go for a menswear inspired look, but with my own flare added to the mix. I built the outfit around my old boyfriend-style blazer from college. I kept it simple but with an edge by adding my genie pants and black skullcap. I wanted to make sure that my outfit was fit for one of the best valentines I would ever have…..me!! 🙂
