Celebrating Valentine's Day isn't just about giving chocolates to your significant other. Celebrate your partner in crime or even yourself, because why the heck not. Celebrate that you are strong enough to resist the annual scramble to find a Valentine's Day date just to be socially accepted. Let's be honest, it is more socially acceptable now-a-days to be strong, independent and spending time with friends than with a subpar stranger you rounded up the night before. Like my good ol' friend Justin Bieber says...
Contrary to popular belief, Valentine's Day is not just a Hallmark holiday (although society has seemed to have made it similar to one). The exact origins of the holiday are not exactly clear, but the theories revolve around one Saint Valentine. This was the day in which they held an ancient ceremony that consisted of putting the names of girls of the town into a box and allowed the boys to pick at random from the pool of names. This was function was pairing off couples to be together until the following year. I don't know about you guys, but I'm going to be celebrating that this ugly tradition is over! Celebrate, enjoy independence, and spoil yourself because you are AWESOME.
Spoiling yourself doesn't always mean to buy yourself a pony—but it could! My idea of spoiling myself means buying the things I drool over when scrolling online, so here's a starter for your searching:
Comfort is key when working out or lounging about. My perception on comfort is that the garment has to be aesthetically pleasing to feel confident while wearing it, be made with quality fabric that does not sag and stretch throughout the day, and does not require me to constantly adjust it on my body. DYI and Project Social T satisfy all three of the requirements. On top of all the coziness, you're gong to need some bling to spruce it up. Luckily, Beth Quinn Designs can help with that.
I've hit gold with this brand. Not only do they infuse fashionable clothing and healthy living into a brand, but they push towards a balanced mindset. Looking and feeling amazing has never been better than with DYI's collection of activewear. The leggings, in particular, are where I struck gold. They are high-wasited, and I mean above your bellybutton high. This is great to pair with workout tops that might flow or show a bit too much. This feature is also very flattering to your figure; similar to spanx, your hips and abs will be looking as toned as ever! Not to mention, the styles and prints are nothing short of flawless. I have a special love for bold printed pieces, but there are also edgy yet subtle styles like the All Zipped Up Tight leggings.
