Casual Valentines Day OutfitSo, valentines day is coming up....apparently. I've actually never done anything for valentines day so it's kind of a non entity in my life....I had actually forgotten it was coming up until House of Fraser launched this competition on their blog. You create a valentines day outfit on your blog, leave the link on their page & you could win £100 in House of Fraser vouchers.
I thought it sounded a lot of fun & a great way to do a fashion post when I am honestly still too ill to do anything much....
I have taken the excuse of it being valentines day to play up the red accessories & accents but - as you may have noticed - I haven't picked a red lip. I think that red lips are almost overdone on valentines day & so I've picked very nude face makeup.
Not boring though - the very luxurious lip product & false lashes are intended to create a French style barely-there-but-absolutely-stunning look that works on anyone. That French laid back attitude is there in the whole outfit I think, the combining of just a few simple, elegant pieces to make a timeless outfit. It would work for a 20 something on her way to college, a mum on a school run or a woman more my grandma's age...not that my mum or grandma would ever wear something like this, which is comforting since I love outfits like this!
Mind you, there is no way I am going to look anything like this on Valentines day, I have a meeting that Saturday & a Powerchair football match on the Sunday so I'll be in my legging & hoodie scrimping & saving every scrap of energy possible....lol.
How about you guys? Any valentines day plans? Any outfit plans or do you still need to do some shopping?
