5 Valentine’s Day Ideas to Make this Valentine’s Day The Best One Yet

What’s up everyone, it’s your girl Colleen from @smilelikecolleen

I am so excited to share my Valentines Day collaboration work with Goodwill! This year, I wanted to bring to life five creative concepts around things you can do this upcoming Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re spending it with your boo, living your best life single, or with spending it friends, we got you covered! 

Treat Yo Self 


Oh hunny, nothing is better than a little ‘you’ time, am I right or am I right? This Valentine’s Day, spend it with the person who deserves you most, YOU! Get your nails done, treat yo self to a new hairstyle, go all out! For this look, it’s important to feel glamorous. Pair your favorite dress color (mine being pink) with an over-the-top coat that makes you feel beautiful. For this look, pearl accessories were a must for me. Classy & Fabulous darling! *cue Glamorous by Fergie* 


Avoid the crowds and overpriced appetizers this Valentine’s Day. What’s better than getting nice and cozy with the one you love? For this look, I paired an oversized sweater shirt with a bright red pencil skirt. Classic & cute. Keep your accessories light and style your hair in a way that’s comfortable! Have your boo treat you with a home cooked meal, the classic Valentine’s Day chocolates and the best gift, quality time together. Huge shout out to my fake boyfriend for this shoot @trainwithtfox for making this vision come to life! 

Road Trip

Valentine’s Day is on a Friday this year! You know what that means, road trip! Grab a couple of your closest friends and take a much needed road trip to a place where the weather is warm and the ocean is close. For this look I paired wild prints / patterns with bright colors – the perfect road trip getaway look. Have fun by pairing with colorful sunglasses, your favorite pair of boots, and comfortable pants or dress. Thank you to @thetropicofvirgo and @beckyschmidt for being my besties for this shoot. We goin to Cali baby! 

Galentine’s Day


What better way to celebrate than with your girls? This year, have fun by dressing up and enjoying amazing drinks and even better pastries with those there for you all year around, your girls! For this look, I wanted to keep it super girly and the classic Valentines Day theme, incorporating different shades of pinks and red. I paired a hot pink romper with a light pink vintage jacket and finished the look with black heart shaped earrings and classic black boots. Thanks to my ladies @_mhmm.jade, @drekt271, and @francela_franco07 for making this amazing vision come to life! 

Date Night 

And last but not least, date night! This Valentine’s Day, have the time of your life with the one you love out to dinner. For this look, I paired a beautiful velvet dress with the most sparkly shoes I could find. For Jordan’s look, I found this amazing patterned die at Goodwill that matched my dress perfectly! Lastly, I pulled the look together with big diamond earrings and a dark lip. This look is about feeling absolutely beautiful while celebrating a night out that you deserve! Thanks to @trainwiththefox for being the best fake boyfriend for this look! 

And there you have it! 5 looks, 5 different locations, and 5 things you can do this Valentine’s Day! Remember, this holiday is all about celebrating love, no matter how that is defined to you.
