What and When is Galentine's Day?
Galentine’s Day is like the friendship version of Valentine's Day; it's a day set aside to celebrate your favorite female friendships and all the joy and goodness they bring to your life. It's these friendships that help us to live longer, happier lives after all. While most say Galentine's Day is officially celebrated on February 13th, besties everywhere gather to celebrate their friendship anytime around Valentine's Day.
A Few Ideas To Celebrate Galentine's Day
Like life’s other best celebrations, Galentine's Day is you and your chica's day for the taking. Make it whatever you want! What do you love to do together? What are the things you wish you had more time for? Is it crafting? Cooking? Being pampered together? There are a million ways to celebrate your favorite girls, but the best way is what brings your girl gang the most joy.
Get glammed up for a fancy dinner or brunch, or don't get out at all and cater sushi in your jammies for a night in. Go for a hike, take a class together, see a film, or enjoy a lux spa day; it's your Galentine's Day, babe; make it what you love most.
Galentine's Day Outfits to Try This Year
Depending on how you and the babes decide to celebrate, you'll either want to glam it up or cozy up. Lucky for you, we've got ideas for both.
These darling Flowers Socks are everything, not only for obvious reasons, but we love how versatile they are. Slip them on with a pair of your coziest sweats, or pair them with your favorite heels to make a right-on-trend statement.
This Ligonberry Candy Bunnies Large Square Scarf is as sweet as it is practical. We live by the idea that a large scarf can be anything you want it to be. Drape it on your neck for an extra dose of swag at a girlies brunch. Or try it as a turban or headscarf for an elegant yet modern statement piece for a day out with the squad.
Nothing says Galentine's Day like an accessory made to be whatever you want it to be. Tie this Fortune Twilly Silk Skinny Scarf onto your neck for a little pop of G-Day wow, or tie your hair up for an outdoor adventure with the gals.
