What I Wore :: The Brit Pack Valentine’s Edition

What I Wore Valentine’s Edition

“I just wanna be a fool and get lovesick with you,”
Lovesick, Peace

This year, it seems Valentine’s day is everywhere you look. My inbox is full of racy underwear, saucy dresses and scintillating deals to treat the man in my life. It’s enough to make a nun blush! With my dedication to the 100 spending ban still going strong (ladies, we are 39 days in!) I haven’t indulged in any Valentine’s themed spending. However, with a wardrobe resembling that of a small child’s, it aint hard to find a heart print or two. Mix hearts with a splash of vibrant red and Valentine’s day dressing is all wrapped up. 
Let’s talk about this dress. It cost £10. Yes, £10. I bought it in December 2012, intending to wear it for our Christmas party and, you guessed it, I never did. I’m a sucker for a Peter Pan collar, but a Peter Pan collar trimmed in beaded embroidery. I think it’s lush! I’ve added the bow for added cuteness. What I really like about this dress is the fact that it has sleeves. Have you ever tried shopping for dresses with sleeves in? They’re always so hard to find and they’re never in the sales, apart from this beaut. 

Altogether, I think this outfit cost around £25. That’s including shoes, tights and bracelet. Most of the purchases were sale buys. It’s probably one of my favourite and cheapest outfits. Hang on, surely that’s an oxymoron? 


Did I wear this outfit to a fancy restaurant? A romantic meal for two? No. Sadly not. However, I wore it for a special little girl’s Christening. My Goddaughter, Lucy. After all of these dull, rainy days, the sun decided to shine and we could snap outfit pictures once more. Hurrah!

Tonight, you’ll find me spending quality time with my boy. It’s our first Valentine’s day together, as a couple, so I’m cooking him a meal and we’ll be enjoying a glass of wine. In the morning, we’re heading down to London for two days of sightseeing. In a way, I think I prefer a Valentine’s night in. It’s more personal! I can’t wait to see his face, it’s been too long.
