This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

What to Wear for Valentine’s Day

February, 7, 2016

The countdown has begun! It’s officially six days until Valentine’s Day! And if you’re like me, this holiday should be called, “Valentine’s Weekend.” Why limit such a wonderful celebration to just one day?

You college students planning for Valentine’s balls might relate to this SOS that I just received: “My boyfriend invited me to his Cupid Ball. Most college events are semi-formal, but this one is formal. I’m super-psyched, but I’m not a formal girl. I don’t like to wear accessories. Help please!”

If you’re in a similar situation, I’d advise choosing a lightweight, comfortable gown with an accessory already on it, like this Lauren Ralph Lauren. It’s formal, yet the breathable material is no-fuss. And with the side embellishment, no jewelry is needed to complete your look.
