Oh Valentines day, that day when we go all heart eyed emojii style over our loved ones. Now i am not that big on V-day, but I’m not against it either per-say. For me any excuse to have a date with the husband and get dressed up is A-ok in my books.
But when i got to thinking about it, because obviously when i think of occasions the first thing i process is what would i wear, I realised that there are a few options that could be for Valentines day.
Now this is dress code talk that only another lady would understand, so here goes:
We have uber dressy, we have smart and then we have smart casual options.
Some people like to go all out and have a dinner in a fancy restaurant, some like a nice pub meal and maybe the cinema, and then there are some who will perhaps go out in the day for a stroll or take in a gallery or museum.
Dates are all personal preference, and whether its your first Valentines or your 10th, picking a fabulous outfit that makes you feel amazing, can never be a bad thing.
I’m thinking dining out in a fine establishment, candle lit and fancy feasts.
I chose a pretty dress for this, more specifically a wrap dress, which is a beautiful flattering cut that will accentuate you in all the right places. This lovely little number reminds me of the dress i was wearing the night my husband first kissed me(awww), so the shape and the style of the dress feels a little romantic and lovely.
Smart is my groove, this is where I am most happy and most likely to be my dating category. I’m think a rather lovely meal at a charming restaurant, followed by drinks or maybe even a movie.
Leather trousers and a gorgeous Pussybow Blouse is kinda smart-sexy and comfortable don’t you think?(Sidenote, I’m also in love with this blouse.. how gorgeous!) And being as its February I added on my faux fur coat for warmth and added huggabilty.. who wouldn’t want to hug me in this fluffy bad boy!
Casual Day Date
I love the idea of instead of a traditional night time date making it in to a day long event, with lunch, taking in a gallery and some PDA action with a little hand holding.
For this comfort but class is required. My first item of choice is a trusty breton top, this one has a twist however as its adorned with subtle sequins and a soft neck-line. I added in my comfy jeans, classic black coat, my lace-up flats and a pop of romantic red with the bag.
What are you planning on wearing and doing this valentines day?
Do share, I would love to know!
