Valentine's Day

Hello lovelies!
As you may already know I absolutely love Valentine's Day, I think it's so sweet that there's a day completely dedicated to celebrating love and showing the special people in your life how much they mean to you or even just having a day to completely spoil yourself with no judgement ;) It doesn't matter if I'm with someone or not I still always make the most of the day, I like to go all out and wear red and heart shaped things etc. haha I love going a bit over the top with these special days, as you can probably tell by my attire above.  I had bought the dress below last year and was adamant I was going to keep it in my wardrobe and wait for Valentine's Day (sad I know!) and with my last minute V-day plans I was so keen to wear it that I'd have even wore it to pick up a Domino's pizza or for a drive through MaccyDs haha! Luckily we managed to get into Zizzi's so that was a bit more appropriate ;)

The week building up to Valentine's day was not the same as it normally is, I'm usually really buzzing with excitement but I recently had to deal with a sad time in my life (hence why I haven't blogged so much either) so I hadn't really felt up for even talking about it as much, which is so unlike me and I was also meant to be in work so I wasn't really too fussed but eventually things had calmed down and my shift was cancelled so I got myself together and made the most of it. I was greeted in the morning with this gorgeous bouquet of flowers that had a lovely bright sunflower, lilies and a glittery red rose and a necklace. Later on in the day we headed out to have our delicious Zizzi's and then went to see Kingsman: The Secret Service, on first impressions of the film, I thought it looked good but after watching it, it turned out to be better than I had anticipated, full of action and some humorous parts too. I'd definitely recommend it :)

Before deciding on my outfit above and before our plans had changed, the outfit at the top of the page was what I was going to wear if we had ended up out for food during the day. It takes my dress I wore last year and layering this cute jumper over the top for a more day time look.
Hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day! <3

  4. Your dress is GORGEOUS! Wow! The shoes (yes I spotted them peeping out at the bottom!) look so perfect with the outfit as well!

    We stayed in this year so no dressing up for me, we sat on the sofa eating pizza and watching Taken (his choice) and 500 Days of Summer (my choice!) ... I think next year we should make more effort!
