…or rather not, because if you wear red on Valentine’s Day then you’re a fool. I cannot bear the store windows, all red lingerie, hearts and flowers. I suggest you keep it simple, like this little black dress from Mango, one of my favourite dresses for a night out. I would really like to hear everyone’s thoughts on what to wear on Valentine’s Day, whether it be dinner out or a casual date… for me in the past it has felt like an awful lot of fashion pressure which is why I tend to stick to a LBD.

Actually I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day because it has always seemed quite masochistic to me. If you’re in a relationship, you have to make this one day far more meaningful than the other 364 days in the year that you’re probably (hopefully?!) also trying very hard to make special. If you’re single, well, loneliness and misery looms. So. As we might feel a little depressed (now, after reading my post, sorry to all you hopeless romantics out there) at the impending deadline of V Day, let us console ourselves with the dulcet tones of my favourite artist Corinne Bailey Rae, who has a “Love EP” out on the 14th Feb. When I listened to this it made me feel warmer towards the whole concept of Valentine’s Day immediately. I’m all heart really… Check it out: this is her cover of the classic “Is This Love” by Bob Marley. J’adore…
P.S I’m dedicating this post to all my lovely readers, from whom the bloglovin’ keeps me posting. Happy Valentine’s Day Blog Reader Xx
