Valentine's Day... The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines").(Wikipedia). I am not sure if it's the pink and red decorations, or just the thought of love in the air, but I have always loved Valentine's day. There is just something about knowing that love is being shared whether it be through significant others, friends, siblings, parents, grandparents, or whoever you feel close to. This Valentine's day celebrate, regardless of who you are with. Below are three Valentine's day looks. The first is going from the office to meet for dinner or a drink, the second is for a casual breakfast or lunch date, and the third is for a romantic dinner date.

We are a fast paced society and sometimes it can become very exhausting to keep up. When we are ahead of ourselves, we tend to lose track of the things that we have always loved.
