Galentine's Day: What to Do & What to Wear
Galentine’s Day falls on Thursday 13th Feb, the day before Valentine’s Day. Now more than ever, the need for a bae is at an all time low - who needs a bae when you’ve got your girls to plan the most amazing day ever! Whether you’re just feelin’ yourself this year or you’re completely anti-love, make this year’s Galentine’s Day (and weekend) count. Here’s some ways you can make it the best year yet for you and your gals.
Cocktail Time 🍸
My favourite thing to do with the girls is go out for cocktails. There’s nothing a pornstar martini won’t solve! Find yourself a nice place (preferably with a 2-4-1 offer!) to sit with a lush view, have your favourite cocktail in hand and get all your gossip out with your squad. Nothing beats sitting yourself down for a good few hours having a flowing conversation about all sorts with your favourite people. You’ll obviously need a constant flow of drinks and you might notice yourself getting giddy by the end of it, and that’s okay!! Keep the party going all night if you want. My preferred outfit for this event would definitely be some mom jeans, comfy heeled boots, a bodysuit and a leather blazer. Keep your top kinda fancy so if the time comes and you end up going out, the blazer comes off and your top immediately says let’s party!
TV Night 📺
If you don’t wanna go out, invite everyone round to binge watch your favourite TV. Record a few episodes of Love Island and watch them all in one night, have your own quiz, a load of snacks and some comfy blankets. Reality TV is so much more fun when you’re watching with your friends, the reactions, the shouting and the gossiping after about what’s going to happen in the next episode. This is a comfy occasion so tell your friends it’s loungewear only! Get your cosiest hoodie and joggers on and stay under a blanket all evening living life. Here’s some product options I’d go for:
Dinner Date(s) 🍝
Why have one dinner date when you can have multiple?! A nice meal out is always such a treat, good food and good company - is there anything better? Pick somewhere you haven’t been before, or go to your signature food place and relive all the funny times you’ve had there. A killer outfit is necessary for this occasion, especially when celebrating yourself and how you don’t need no man! I’d go for some cigarette trousers, a turtle neck, some comfy mules and lots of delicate accessories to finish off the look.
Go OUT out 🥂
Feeling wild? Then a meal or cocktails might not cut it. If you want to go out, go big or go home we say! Celebrate Galentine’s in true fashion, getting ready with your fave girlfriends, taking loads of amazing selfies and photos, ordering far too many tequilas at the bar and immediately regretting it. Don’t even think about texting your ex either! It’s strictly a girl’s night, just go out and have the best time with loads of laughs. You want to look absolutely amazing, so this is what I’d go with…
Sleepover & Chick Flicks 🍿
Sometimes you have to stick to your roots and relive all your old sleepovers you used to have when you were younger. Get a load of blankets and cushions, set up a fort in your living room with your besties and put on some old school chick flicks. I’m talking Mean Girls, Clueless, 13 Going On 30, Legally Blonde, Bridesmaids. Order your favourite takeaway and have the most chilled night in! This definitely calls for pyjamas:
