"The best friend you will ever find is you. Love yourself with joy and fill your heart with bliss and happiness." ~ Debasish Mridha

Valentine's Day is in a few days and it's a day that many of us single people are not really fond of. It reminds us that we don't have someone special in our lives to share in a day such as Valentine's Day. And that honestly sucks.

But in recent years, I decided to not be so bummed about Valentine's Day. It's a day of love and why not show love for myself and my loved ones? You can make the day yours - that is the beauty of having free will. 

The foundation of life is loving yourself. When you love yourself, you are happy and that shows. You will be able to love freely and endlessly. If you love and adore yourself, life is just a better place.

I'm a big believer of appreciating the little things. I'm a simple girl. And one of the things I absolutely love is fashion. I love prints, I love being able to dress up when I want, I love feeling fancy and free, and I just love that you can dress your body any way you want. To me, that's a great way to show yourself some love.

So my girls Darlene of Suits, Heels & Curves and Dana of Who's The Girl Dana? and I decided to focus on our fashion loves for this next installment of our #CurvasenNYC collaboration.

When I saw this print skirt at Lane Bryant a few weeks ago, it was fate. The skirt was on a wall rack at the bottom and I only saw a sliver of the print. I was just about to give up and walk out the store, feeling defeated because I couldn't find something to wear for Valentine's Day. And then magically, this skirt appeared. ::cue dramatic music::

Oh yes, you read right. I may be single but I am still getting fancy, dressing up and showing out as I usually do. :-) Funny thing is, I have no idea where I am going yet. Even if it's just watching some Netflix and taking selfies, hey, I'm going to have a blast by myself.

I saw the red button down shirt and loved how it looked together. My cousin (who was with me) was skeptical because at first glance, some people would not think to match a bold color with a print. But this is fashion, people. And fashion is who you are and all about taking chances. Why not? So I tried on the skirt and top, to which my cousin was sold, once she saw it.

What I love about a simple button down shirt is that it can be worn in many different ways. Tuck it in, tie a knot at the waist, leave it out and some of the buttons undone or wear it as a jacket over a tank. This is definitely a three-style look.

Here I wore the shirt tucked in with my beloved Obi belt. And of course, I love a little sparkle so I opted for metallic flats. My entire look is from Lane Bryant and was so easy to put together.

I love this skirt so much that I feel like a superheroine in it. I'm going to be on a print skirt kick this Spring. I just know it. It's all love, baby!
