Yes, you can still celebrate the true meaning of Valentine’s Day without buying lavish gifts or giving into obligations and social pressure! It’s simply a day to recognise the loved ones in your life, and it doesn’t need to entail much money – just time and sincerity.
Once I became a mother, I realised that Valentine’s Day didn’t have to revolve around bouquets of roses, teddy bears and cardboard hearts anymore. However, this is the perfect time to instill long-lasting love within the family. Regardless of your relationship status, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to wear your heart on your sleeve and show love wherever you go. At its essence romance is a feeling of mystery and excitement.
While classic reds and pinks are the quintessential colour choice for V-Day, other colors in sensuous textures, like black and white ensembles are fabulous too. Finished off with perfectly glossed lips and you’ve given your nod to the day. Here are my top 3 look tips to easily transform from office to dinner.
Nothing says love quite like the colour red and when it comes in the form of a tailored sexy suit – pants or skirt, paired with a tiny bow silk scarf around the neck and paired with kitten heels or dressy flats. The deals are done, signed and off to dinner you go, dropping the suit jacket and revealing your satin camisole neatly tucked in at the waist. Finished off with stilettos, and statement earrings and a bold red lip to invite the night.
Make a statement in a dressy blouse with ruffles if possible paired with classic jeans and dressy sneakers for your busy day, then swap out your sneakers for heels and a small chain bag. Perfecting the look with evening jewellery and of course the perfect shade of lipstick that says I’m ready.
Pretty and flirty is a tried and tested a way to exude romance and femininity going from day to night. Simply swap out your day sandals and bag for an evening clutch, strappy heels and sexy drop earrings with a spritz of perfume and embrace the romance.
If you’re too tired, call it! Get takeout go home and close the bedroom door. That’s love too.
