The Perfect Valentine's Day

Being the optimist that I am, February is when in my eyes the temperatures start to creep up (slowly but surely), and you can finally start perusing the S/S17 aisles and dream about summer (right!?). If you're stuck for ideas and you want a killer outfit for Valentine's Day, read ahead for my guide to the perfect afternoon with your partner.

Valentine's Day is one of those special times of year where you can totally dress up for the afternoon/evening, and have a really lovely time with your partner. If you're stuck for ideas (like I was!), I can definitely recommend afternoon tea with bubbly at your local spa hotel! I recently visited Wood Hall Spa Hotel and I had the perfect afternoon. So what do you wear?

I love to keep an outfit simple, but with an occasion like Valentine's Day, it's always nice to spice things up a little! This year, I chose to wear this gorgeous head to toe outfit from Karen Millen, it reminds me of something you would wear to the Races on a summer's day and it is honestly the most comfortable and flattering outfit too. There is nothing worse than feeling really uncomfortable when you're supposed to be enjoying an occasion!

The high waisted skirt tucked into this contrasting sleeveless sweater allows you to wear a simple style of outfit with a bold pattern and still look understated. Pair it with this minimalist black bag which is an ideal size to hold everything you need on your date - a phone, lip gloss, and your keys. Add some simple silver jewellery and you're ready to go! To get that understated look, wear an outfit that brings a pop of colour, but compliment it with a natural application of make up to balance the loudness of your look. It works every time.

Finally, how cute are these red flats?! These can bring any outfit to life, especially on Valentine's Day! I hope this post helped inspire one of you out there if you were struggling to find a venue/outfit this year. I have left all of the links down below as always, and have a very lovely Valentine's Day everyone! <3
