As we learned in Brianna’s last post, Galentine’s Day is where it is at. I welled up during the Parks and Recreation series finale Tuesday night but I’m so happy that this holiday will live on in infamy.
Seeing as how my (would be) Valentine’s outfit was on the vampy side, I wanted to go the exact opposite for Galentine’s Day. If it was ethereal or pink, I was interested. My outfit did have one thing in common with my outfit the night before, though: I wore another nightgown.
I don’t know what it says about our current fashion trends when vintage nightgowns are a million times more elegant than any present day-wear I have … but I’m glad that these things exist. My mom bought me this nightgown in high school for “dress up” as she fueled my vintage obsession from a young age. I recently tried it on again to see if it was a viable wedding dress. It was a definite frontrunner to be honest, but I found “the one” so I wanted to make sure I got to wear this baby out sooner rather than later.
Since it was so so very cold on this day, I picked out the quilted jacket that goes with this dress. Nothing like pink, flowers, lace and quilting to make you feel ultra feminine!
If I had a salvagable pair, I would’ve worn pink or white tights instead of tan. But you work with what you have! I recently got these (potentially wedding?) heels from Goodwill so I thought now would be a good time to test run them. I didn’t come home with bloody toes and that’s really all you can ask from a heel!
