The Hot Mess

fashion-1063100_960_720

In a nutshell:

She’s definitely all over the place, but she looks damn good while doing it. Even though she’s always working two or three different part-time jobs, she somehow manages to be out every night. Constantly leaves her phone in the Uber. Knows all of the bouncers. If she’s not seen at Benjamin’s for over 24 hours, the bartender should report her as missing.

What she’s wearing:

A pair of ripped blue jeans, your favorite flannel she refuses to give back and boots. Her hair is always up in a messy bun, yet her smoky eye makeup is still on point.

How you met:

Smoking outside of Benjamin’s

Ideal Valentine’s Day Date:

The formality of a sit-down dinner is too much pressure for your pretty train wreck, so a downtown bar crawl will suit her just fine. You’re better off skipping the roses and chocolates and emptying your pockets for the tab. Note: If anything, it’s quite possible that she doesn’t actually know you’re officially together, because she’s always been too busy, too tired or too drunk while you try to clarify what you are.

 

The Nature Lover

In a nutshell:

Her love for nature and dedication to living as green as possible is more than admirable. She volunteers for beach cleanups and marathons and lives at the farmer’s market. Bikes everywhere. On a lazy day, she can be spotted buying prepared food at A Market and brings her own reusable bags.

What she’s wearing:

Anything made of organic fabric or bought from consignment.

How you met:

At the Aquidneck Growers’ Market last summer

Ideal Valentine’s Day Date:

Start the day early by exploring Sachuest Point or a loop on the Sakonnet Greenway Trail then have Sunday brunch at Stoneacre Pantry. In keeping with the winter outdoors theme, walk over to the Newport Skating Center and stay on the ice rink for an hour or so before enjoying the rest of the day lazing inside. Be sure to present her with a Fair Trade card and a cool artisan made gift from Green Envy Eco-Boutique—if you give her flowers, you’re better off getting her a small herb plant to add to her mini indoor garden.
