Sometimes it's really difficult to figure out what to wear on Valentine's Day! Especially if you live in a country where it most likely will be freezing cold and pouring rain! I wish I could wear a cute pink/red party dress out to dinner with my fiancé, but if I did I would probably end up looking like a corpse with icicles hanging from my nose. So let's make this summery polka dot dress work for winter, shall we?!
My parents bought me this dress at a local boutique almost 4 years ago. I absolutely love the 50's style of a full A-line skirt, cinched waist and flattering v-neck! It's one of my favourite dresses I own. It comes to just below the knee and has a high back. I wear this in the summer time with bare legs, off-white heels and a cream blazer. In winter time all I do is switch up the colours from light to dark and instead pair it with black opaque tights, black pumps (ASOS) and a black tailored blazer (also ASOS!) This ensures that I don't freeze to death and still look cute! This would work well for a dinner date, or going out in the evening.
Yeah, these two pictures are almost identical...sorry! Hahaha, I was trying to get two of each and it wasn't till I was editing that I realised my pose was exactly the same in all the photos of this outfit! Also can we just take the time to note what a very bright studio light and an HD camera will do to your sheer clothing...ahem. You think that's bad? The video is even worse! I swear it's not that see-through in real life...
Anyway, here's a more casual look for daytime, or if you're in school/college (minus the see-throughness, obviously!) or even if you're just a casual jeans and tank top kind of girl who doesn't want to get dressed up for a date! The black tank top is from InWear and the booties are from ASOS. I broke up the black with a pair of grey skinny jeans from Zara and added a pop of festive colour with a red cardigan from Oasis. And just to show that even a casual outfit can be Valentinesy, I added this beautiful heart necklace from an amazing costume jewellery brand, Talullah Tu!
This outfit reminds me of a ballerina! I adore the red skirt, it has black bow detailing on the pockets and is a high-waisted flattering A-line style. I paired it up with black tights and pumps from ASOS. The skirt is also from ASOS but I bought it 2 years ago. The top is a basic round-neck one from Vila, which looks a lot like a leotard with this skirt and tights! And where would we be without a heart? Dead, is the answer to that question...hahaha! But just for a little touch of sparkle, I added a different heart necklace this time, from La Moxie!
So there you have it, three different looks for Valentine's Day! Let me know your favourite and I hope you all have a wonderful day, whether it's spent with your partner, family or friends <3
