Happy Valentines Day sweethearts! Despite being a very much commercialised holiday, I can't help thinking its a sweet idea that there is one day a year completely dedicated to the idea of love. Yes, you should make the one you love feel special everyday of the year, not just one, but with all the negativity in the world its nice to have a day thats just filled with the positive thought of love. Plus who doesn't like a sneaky present? I've been enjoying my white roses & The Kennedys this morning very much!
Anyway, in theme with this day of romance (and having a romantic date this evening) my FOTD has been designed around this theme:
Using my fancy new Sephora palette, I went for pink shimmery eye-makeup, and deep red lips to stick with the Valentines theme - blending a dramatic, pink colour from the corners in over a shell pink glittery base then with my usual feline flicks. With a few lashings of Benefit's flushed-look 'Thrrrob' over my cheeks, I felt truly beautified for my big valentine's date this evening (with an outfit post to come later!).
However, my daytime outfit is not so much Valentines themed but more I wanted to wear my new ASOS dress & new lace up Next boots! So here they are:
Dress: ASOS; Belt: Next; Leggings: New Look; Necklace: Accesorize (Dani's); Boots: Next.
I love, love, love this new dress! I mean, its shorter than the picture on the website suggested so it can only be worn with leggings, but its got such cute polka dots and three quarter length sleeves - perfect for hiding my huge arms! It actually comes with a thin brown belt but prefer wide waist belts if I'm honest so traded it in for a trusted favourite. Now the boots... These things of beauty. Real leather, lace up design and just the right heel - it was fate that brought us together. Fate. And Ebay. I snagged these lovelies for £17 instead of over £100. Win! So now I wear them as much as possible and have fallen a little in love with them, not ashamed to say!
Well hope everyone is enjoying their Valentines day, or, just your day anyway! I'll post about tonight's outfit later, once I've decided what I actually want to wear!
