Hi friends. It's the month of LOVE! My friends and I planned a GALentines day this year and had so much fun. Life gets busy and it does take effort to maintain and grow your friendships. Following them on social media alone doesn't count. I believe you truly need to make an effort to hang out. Otherwise, you miss out on so many of the blessings that friends can bring to your life and you can add to theirs.
So if you're in need of a fun "girl's day," now's a great time! I hope our photos inspire you. We had so much fun getting all dolled up. That's a change from my usual gym hair, workout clothes and sneakers. This mama definitely needed a day out. You definitely should follow my girlfriends Lindsey with Our Messy Table and Bridget with To Celebrate Everything. Be sure to check out their blogs for details on their gorgeous dresses. Both of these women inspire me daily. It's so important to surround yourself with like-minded people who support you and lift you up.
I've gotten so many compliments on this red dress and it's under $50 in case you're on a budget like me! I hope you'll check it out at Francesca's, one of my favorite stores. I am wearing a size medium dress in the photo. I absolutely love the lace detail and red is my power color. I paired the dress with nude heels. I might just wear this on my next date with my husband and it would be perfect to wear to a wedding. So many options!
Do you see how I was staring at that cupcake? We were having a moment for sure! It's nice to indulge once a week so you don't feel restricted. I like to eat healthily all week long and have a treat meal or dessert (maybe both) on the weekend. I like to have mine Sunday afternoon so I am less likely to overindulge all weekend long. Everyone likes to start fresh on Monday and there's definitely something to that. It works for me!
My friends and I are hosting a $50 Francesca's gift card giveaway, so check out my Instagram to read the details on how to enter. A huge Thank You to Diamond Oak Photography for capturing this fun day!
Thank you for stopping by to check out our Galentines day. Let me know if you get inspired and have a girl's day with your friends. I'd love to hear about it.
