I’m already bored of all the Valentine’s Day gift guides – all of which include red roses, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates and some form of red underwear. How original…Not!
I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day anyway, it’s cheesy, and thanks to Hallmark and the likes, it has become tacky and commercialised. There are so many cute things that could be included in these round ups but never are.
So although I won’t be partaking in an over-priced Valentine’s menu in a crammed restaurant with an hour turn around on each table, there are lots of you that will be doing something to celebrate whether at home or out on the town. Whatever you’re doing, have a great night and here are my top picks for a Valentine’s –inspired outfit. I may not like the day personally, but any excuse to shop is a good excuse if you ask me!
For those true romantics out there, I’ve indulged you that little bit further, all my choices are lovey dovey and the little love hearts will warm your already loved0up Valentine’s heart!
Red heart print silk dress – Marc by Marc Jacobs 50% off, now £212.50
This dress is a gorgeous cut and I love that the print isn’t too cheesy so could easily be work any day of the year. It’s also one of those dresses that will take you from one season to the next quite easily – pair with tights and black heels in the current wintery weather or some ballet pumps/sandals in the summer.
In Love with Rouge – Lancome, $1,500
Ok so this is a pretty expensive purchase but it’s adorable! If you like books, lipstick and clutch bags this is perfect for you. It’s available to pre-order and holds six Lancome lipsticks and nail polishes.
Embroidered floral top with peter pan collar – Topshop, £38
I love this top, the peter pan colour is really cute and makes it a bit more of a special occasion top but would look great with a simple pair of black skinny jeans and heeled boots too.
Believe ring – Wonsuponatime, £8
Wonsuponatime offer a lovely range of sweet, whimsical jewellery perfect for all you romantics. What makes this site even more special is the individual little poems that come with each carefully wrapped purchase, what more could you want?!
