Happy Monday, friends! With Valentine's Day tomorrow, I hope you are feeling the love in the air.
For this edition of the LISTS, I'm loving the soft, romantic color palette in this wishlist, which was inspired by a pink sunset. It's ultra feminine while the darker tones add a bohemian feel. I always think when you're going for romance that vintage-inspired styles are the way to go. They instantly invoke a sense of a classic love story without the cheese factor that often comes with the holiday.
Speaking of the cheese factor, it can be hard to find the balance between romance and cool when it comes to love songs. Men especially, I think, can have a hard time embracing the genre without feeling like the songs are silly. Last year I asked Zach to come up with a list of songs that walked the line between the very romantic and the very cool. It got a great response, so I asked him to add to it again this year. Here are some of his recent additions that I think would make the perfect backdrop to any Valentine's Day party or a romantic dinner at home.
I say "Dude-Approved," but really, these are the kind of love songs I prefer, too. It's basically just for anyone who needs a little grit with their romance for it to feel authentic. You can check out the full list, including last year's songs, on Spotify.
What's your favorite love song?
