I've watched so many DIY Valentine's gift tutorials on YouTube this past week, that I'm really getting in the spirit of romance and cute heart shaped things. Alas, I actually have to work on the 14th this year. xD My boyfriend and I don't make a big deal out of valentine's at all, (I don't think I've even bought him a card, let alone bought/made a gift), mainly because our yearly anniversary lands on the 20th of Feb, and we prefer to celebrate that instead.
Anyway, in the spirit of l'amour, pink things and romance, I thought I'd show you guys what I would wear if I were going on a date this Valentine's day. I've kept it completely foolproof and simple, throw on a pretty dress and cute heels, I mean, every girl has a pretty dress in their wardrobe ;) I think this particular one is perfect for Valentine's because, it's pink! and the sheer, flowy bottom half is so flirty and comfy, but cuts off above the knee so as not to look too over the top. And it does the most amazing job at hiding food babies ;D a valentine's date surely involves dinner right? Whilst the fitted top half with its floral detailing clings to your waist, still keeping your figure.

I love this dress because you have the freedom to remove the grey ribbon and replace with a belt, or another piece of ribbon of your choice. But I personally think the grey ribbon that came with the dress works well with the light pink. I'm also wearing the pearl necklace Tim bought me for my birthday 2 years ago, and I always reserve it for special occasions~
