Valentine's Day


It's the holiday some say were created by card companies to scam love struck couples. But then again, for some, cards are the last thing on their minds. Instead, many of us torture ourselves over what we'll be wearing on the day. Whether your plans involve a lazy picnic lunch, a romantic candle lit dinner, or even a night out with girlfriends to celebrate singledom, for a handful, this is probably a feeling you know all too well. While some choose to splurge on new frocks for Cupid's Day, we like to stick to our philosophy of frugal fashion and advocate restyling and recycling existing pieces in your wardrobe. If you've bee keeping up to date with our posts, you'll notice that this isn't the first time that many of these pieces have made an appearance in a post. Remember it is all about smart styling and accessorising.

This wouldn't be a Valentine's post without the odd, wait let us rephrase, 3 outfits worth of floral prints. As we've shouted from the rooftops many a time, we are big champions of floral prints. Since the 60's they have become a timeless trend, transcending all seasons. If we were to define floral, the words that come to mind are feminine and romance which is why it is the perfect choice for Valentine's Day.
 
 
Smoking Scallops

What better way to save a buck on your Valentine's outfit then to whip out an existing closet favourite. A skater skirt is a staple piece which should have a firm place in every girl's wadrobe. Paired with a unique top like this pastel scalloped one, you can revamp the basic skirt into an outfit that will have your date in awe!

 





 
Skirt: Cotton On
Sandals: Ipanema
Ring: Lovisa
 
 
Blushing Babe
 
Ask any historian and they'd tell you that blush tones were invented just for Valentine's Day! Right?! We love the way the statement necklace ties in with the floral print in the shorts, and of course a touch of Cupcake lip crayon to seal the deal!
 
 






Shorts: Valleygirl
Shoes:Sandler
Necklace: Ritual
 

Stylish Sweetheart
 
With a name like that, the sweetheart neckline is the most romantic neckline which makes it perfect for the most roamntic day on the calendar. Considering the price of this dress, we were impressed by the amazing quality. The dress has black lining and a built in corset to give shape and structure to the sides, and all the while ensuring that the dress stays in place! For those living in the Northern Hemisphere who will be experiencing a slightly cooler Valentine's, don't shy away from rocking a dress like this. Paired with tights and booties, you'll be toasty warm whatever your plans are this 14th of February.





 
Dress: Miss Shop $59.95 $10
Necklace: Lovisa
Ring:Lovisa
Flats: Kagui

What are your plans for Valentine's Day?

  32. I love the scallop top. You're right, getting glammed up and wearing pink seem to be the go-to for the holiday, although it can all get a bit overwhelming or repetitive (I just did a post for outfit ideas that don't involve pink or heels). I'm glad that you are also putting your twist on outfits, and the floral prints you chose are beautiful!

    1. We agree that pink can get a bit boring and OOTD for Valentine's Day which is why we like florals prints or any prints for that matter. You can still have a dash of pink without the whole outfit screaming Barbie Doll!

    1. Recycling and restyling pieces are definitelt something we are passionate about. Not everyone can afford to buy something new for every special occasion, so accessorising is the key
