Wishlist: Galentine’s Day

I’m not really one for Valentine’s Day, but Galentine’s Day is a whole ‘nother ball game. Any excuse to wear pink, eat lots of cake, drink cocktails and stick hearts on everything is good enough for me. If you’re planning a Galentine’s Day afternoon tea or night on the town, here are some of my top picks to help you look the part.

Heart Print Peplum Top by Nobody’s Child · Bright Pink Draped Wrap Front Dress by New Look · Heart Stripe Hot Water Bottle by John Lewis · Red Suedette Pointed Ankle Strap Heels by New Look · Love Lane Crossbody Bag by Radley · Winking Heart Valentine’s Card by Oliver Bonas · Cord Borg Oversized Jacket by Topshop · Gold Band Coupe Glasses by John Lewis · Love Gin by Eden Mill · Cute As a Button Nail Laquer by Essie · Russian Roulette Nail Laquer by Essie · Faux Leather Scallop Skirt by Oasis · Happy Galentine’s Day Card by Atiliay

If you like to keep things quite understated, opt for a subtle nod to Galentine’s Day with a heart print blouse like this one from Nobody’s Child at Topshop. Pair it with a cute scalloped leather skirt and some red heels and you’ll instantly have a Galentine’s Day outfit without going too over the top.

If you want something a little fancier – perhaps for a cocktail night with your favourite gal pals – go for a bold bright pink dress like this draped wrap dress from New Look. You could also give a classic black dress an update for Galentine’s Day with the addition of a heart-shaped bag – I love this little red one from Radley.

I’m planning a Galentine’s Day afternoon with some friends this weekend, and cake and cocktails will feature high on the list of priorities! Eden Mill’s Love Gin is perfect for an occasion like this, and it’s best served out of a cute glass like these gold band coupe glasses from John Lewis.

For finishing touches, you can’t go wrong with some red lipstick or a slick of pink Essie nail polish. These nail polishes would even make a cute token gift if you want to give your Galentine a little something. Don’t forget a card too, I love this calligraphy one from Atiliay on Etsy.
