Where are all my single ladies?!?!

I know what you’re thinking…single?? Valentine’s day?? Ughhh.

Well, if I’m being completely honest…..I was thinking the same for the past month as I looked back and realized I haven’t been single on Valentine’s Day for the past 10+ years (…yikes, sounds even worse when I type it out). So I got to talking with one of my sweet friends Brooke of One Small Blonde and realized that this holiday isn’t only about your boyfriend sending you flowers or surprising you with a weekend getaway — it’s about showing the people you love, well….some love!

So this past weekend some of my favorite dallas bloggers <<One Small BlondeAccessory JaneSide Smile StyleThe Perennial StyleStyle Summary>> and I threw our first ever GALentine’s Day party. It was the most fun, girly-girl thing I’ve done in quite some time and something I very much needed! As you can tell from the photos, we had so much fun writing love notes (to each other, duh), eating the most delicious treats, gossiping, and sipping on champs (per usual).

If you’re thinking about throwing a GALentine’s Day party of your own, it’s oh so simple and this is what you’ll need:

1)A group of really fun girlfriends that aren’t afraid to wear PINK

2) Sweets & treats that will send you on the biggest sugar high

3) Champagne that will knock your socks off

4) Love cards with fun sayings on them like these from Michelle Chanel Creative

And voila! Girls are actually pretty easy & simple if you ask me 😉

See, these are the things you miss out on when you have a significant other in your life….haha just kidding, you married ladies could still throw your own version of a GALentine’s Day party! However, if you are in fact single this year I strongly encourage a soiree of this nature. Let’s be real…sitting and sulking at home will do you no good. So put your big girl panties on, gather all your besties, and spread the LOVE this v-day!! Who’s in??

XOXO,

Sage

I’m loving the colors red & white right now. Not only because Valentine’s day is approaching quickly, but I’m just all about them at the moment.

Who’s ready for Valentine’s day? Some people dread it & others are absolutely crazy for it.  I’m definitely a sappy romantic, so I’ve always loved it..but just because I’m single this year doesn’t mean a girl can’t celebrate Valentine’s day! That’s what your girlfriends are for 🙂 I’m thinking of doing a GAL-entine’s party with all my single girlfriends for V-day this year. Have any of you ever done this before? Suggestions please!!

XOX,

Sage

Jacket: BCBG Maxazria (on sale!) | T-Shirt: T by Alexander Wang | Jeans: J Brand | Boots: Stuart Weitzman | Purse: Tory Burch (old, new fave by Rebecca Minkoff) | Necklaces: Helen Ficalora & Forever21 |

TGIF..right?! It’s always an adjustment for me getting back to work after some vacation time. Lack of sleep has me feeling run down, so I’m looking forward to the weekend 🙂

Is this cobalt blue leather jacket from BCBG Maxazria not everything? I’m kind of obsessed. Actually, really obsessed. I love the black zipper details because it gives it an even edgier vibe + it pairs well with the most dominant color in my wardrobe, black. This is actually the first investment piece I’ve purchased in quiet some time that wasn’t black, but I couldn’t leave the store without it (go figure).

P.S. it’s on major sale, so go get it while you can! Happy Friday y’all 🙂

Fur Coat: Neiman Marcus (old, almost identical fur coat here for 1/2 the price!) | Top: Forever 21 | Denim: Joe’s Jeans | Shoes: Christian Louboutin (if sold out/also LOVE these & these)

Every girl needs herself a fur coat (or 5)….especially one with a zipper & a hood! I got this coat for christmas a few years ago and believe me when I tell you, I may live in Texas…but it’s been put to good use. This is a winter staple piece every girl needs in her closet. And although it comes with a cost, it’s most definitely worth it. Usually the splurges are worth it because they last longer and you get more use out of it.

You’d think fur coats/jackets were for dressy night time looks (…and they are of course), but I also love dressing them down with a pair of jeans. I know one thing…I’ll be relying on this bad boy to keep me warm during Fashion Week in February. It’s my first time going in the Spring, but I hear it’s always freezing cold!

P.S. I just got sneak peak at some of the raw images from shooting in the Dominican Republic this past weekend. They’re amazing and I can’t wait to share with y’all soon 🙂

XOX,

Sage

There’s nothing I love more than 2 things: being comfortable & bringing out my inner tomboy. I told you guys in a recent post that I was trying out jeans + tennishoes for the first time and was pleasantly surprised with the look. So here I am doing it again, only I wanted to make this look a little more chic/not so much grunge. This is a more polished tomboy looked compared to the last one. You could wear this running errands all over town for daytime and trade out your nike’s for these stuart weitzman boots at night.

I feel like I haven’t posted in forever and I’m sorry, but I was in the Dominican Republic the last 5 days for a wedding/vacation and had horrible service! However…. I’m back now and I can’t wait to share my Dominican Republic travel diary along with tons of great beach looks for all the Spring/Summer vacay’s y’all have coming up!

Stay tuned for more & as always thank you for reading 🙂

XOX,

Sage
