Galentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Your Gal Pals

Galentine's Day Gifts

Having been single for Valentine’s Day the past 3 years, I usually find a reason to celebrate the holiday with my girlfriends. I secretly love that Galentine’s Day has become such a tradition among my friend group. We’ve celebrated so many fun ways. We’ve gone out to a nice dinner and we’ve also stayed in and gotten wine drunk. After all, do we really need an excuse to get together, drink a bottle of wine and share endless girl talk? No, but I’ll gladly take it!

If you want to treat a friend or yourself (hehe) this Valentine’s Day, here are some fun and festive ideas that will make your gal pal smile BIG! Click the image to shop each of the below items.

Day to Night: Working Nine to Wine

For those that are new around here, I worked in corporate America for 3 years after college. It’s actually where I started my blog and first shared my love for putting together outfits, which at the time was all work wear since I was working that 9-5 life. After I quit my corporate job, I still made a point to share office wear because frankly there aren’t enough bloggers that do and isn’t that what most women wear on a daily basis? I got you girl.

For me: a 20 something, single, city girl; I was always ready for happy hour or some social event right after work which meant wearing something to work that I could easily transition to after 5 attire. Even now, I firmly believe in purchasing clothes that are wearable for many occasions for example work to weekend or church to wedding. You get what I mean! I will not purchase a piece of clothing if I know I will only be able to wear it one time or for one specific purpose which is why I started my Day to Night series. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you can do so here.

There is nothing more classy or timeless than a little black dress am I right? Even better if it’s office appropriate! See below for a roundup of some of my favorites.

If dresses aren’t your thing, you can’t go wrong with a statement top and a quick change-a-roo from your work slacks into a pair of jeans for date night. I used to always keep a pair of jeans, black heels and red lipstick in my car for emergencies and I highly suggest you do the same 😉 Some of my favorite statement blouses below!

Instagram Captions for Wine Lovers

Between Galentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day, National Wine Day and all of the other reasons to celebrate our one true love this month (*cough*wine*cough*), the captions centered around wine have been at an all time high lately. If you are like me, you assume every day should be celebrated as National Wine Day but unfortunately the internet tells us that that is not the case.

For the rest of us that deem every day a wine day here are some cute, punny caption ideas to push that Instagram photo over the top. Maximum likeage material right here ladies!! Whether you are celebrating Galentine’s Day with a girls night in and your favorite bottle of Llano Estacado Signature Rosé or getting that perfect sunset and “cheersing” shot with Llano Estacado Pinot Grigio, there is a perfect Instagram caption for that.

The wine pictured in today’s post is my favorite bottle of rosé, the Llano Estacado Signature Rosé. It is my go to for girl’s nights and honestly all year round. I did a post here sharing how I use it to make Watermelon Frosé Margaritas (HOLY YUM!) during the warmer months. I might be bias because it’s a Texas wine and I’m a proud Texan, but then again i’ve tried a lot of Texas wines and Llano Estacado wines win my heart over every time. Not going to lie the price tag does too. Your girl is balling on a budget over here! If you’d like to try out any of their wines they are offering my followers 20% off with code CHICTOME20 on their wines. All are available on

Day to Night: Reversible Pieces

White House Black Market Work Wear

White House Black Market Casual Style

Every time I ask you ladies what you want to see more of, the answer is always the same. The verdict is always one piece styled multiple ways because around here we are all about getting the most bang for our buck. Well let me introduce you to quite possibly the most genius idea to having more styling options without paying for multiple pieces: reversible clothing. White House Black Market has come out with a new Reversible Collection that is changing the game. The line includes reversible tops and dresses which is really amazing when you consider how many more outfits you can make when you get two for the price of one.

I am styling one top, two ways for you ladies but I also want to note that their reversible dress collection is just as fabulous. From work to weekend, I’m amazed that this collection can do it all. If you are in need of a little black dress, this is my favorite one from the reversible collection. Such a great option for work, date night, church or weddings!

If you are looking for business professional clothing, White House Black Market has you covered! You will find suits that have a little more character than say your run of the mill, no personality black suit. For instance, I love that this skirt has a flounce hem which is something I have never seen before and is so flattering. If you are confined to wearing a suit everyday, you might as well have some fun with your options! My blazer also has a slight peplum detail to it that makes it stand out and hug your girly figure a little better than most. I particularly love that it is a three quarter sleeve which makes wearing a blazer in this southern heat a little more bearable.

I almost couldn’t believe the transition from yellow to such a bold patterned top! My favorite part being that once turned to the patterned side, the yellow still shows on the bottom of the tank for a layered look. I styled this look for a casual Friday at the office but as soon as that blazer comes off, you are ready for after 5 cocktails! I’m already planning many nights out with this little tank.

One of the reason’s I have a particular liking to White House Black Market is that they cater to all sizes: regular, petite, plus and short sizing options! I am just shy of 5’4″ so finding petite clothing, especially work wear is always a struggle. For sizing reference I am wearing an XSP in the tank, OP in the jackets and a 00P in the jeans and skirt. I would say that everything runs very true to size.
