{Fashion Monday} Valentine’s Day outfit inspo 

Valentine’s Day outfit inspo, a mood board I put together to give you an idea. Obviously not all of us want to dress all red or even like the colour. So I thought I pick another colour and/or keep red to a minimum. Since Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday this year, I have also included an outfit one can donned for work.

Valentine's Day Outfit Inspo

Valentine’s Day outfit inspo 

Valentine’s Day to me is just like any other day, it is overly commercialised. Though I wouldn’t object to going out for dinner or a walk on the town. But over the years I have always celebrated either a few days before or a few days after to avoid the crowds. For am Valentine’s Day should be everyday and not just on 14th February, we should show love everyday.

When I was thinking about the Valentine’s Day outfit inspo, I had to think of outfits I can wear myself. The first order of business was find something in my closet for work since 14th February is a Tuesday. The weather is not particularly good of late so made sense to pick a Turtleneck jersey dress. I felt pairing it with red heeled boots would go quite nicely with minimal accessories.

For those who have plans to go out for the night I figured either a strapless or paneled dress would do. The strapless bandage bodycon dress is one which is simple yet can be dressed sophisticated. I found these gold toe capped pumps and liked how they looked paired together. The paneled dress is one that I like very much and would love the colour.
If you’re like me and not celebrating the lover’s day this year, don’t fret. You can still dress up and look good for you, I know I do and will do this year too.
What do you think of my Valentine’s Day outfit Inspo?

    Sadly I am working a 12 hour shift on Valentine’s day but these suggestions will work on that weekend 🙂 I love love love the night dress

    Very nice! I love that there’s a hint of red but it’s more diverse than what you see during Valentine’s Day which is mostly all shades of red. The gold is definitely a nice compliment. Everything is lovely!

    • January 28, 2017 / 11:23 am

      Thanks Mai, that was mine aim just to have a hint of red without overwhelming the looks

    I love that outfit! I also don’t celebrate on V-day because of the crowds. We usually stay inside and go out the day before or after.

    • January 20, 2017 / 8:29 am

      It seems every year it’s getting worse with the busyness

  22. January 17, 2017 / 2:19 pm

      Thanks Emma, not everyone wants the red red for Valentine’s Day

  39. January 16, 2017 / 9:37 pm

    I think these outfit selections are so pretty. The tight skirt with gold embroidery would look great with pump heels.

    • January 20, 2017 / 8:21 am

      It’s actually a dress lol but it does also look like a skirt which I love

      Thanks Shane

  42. January 16, 2017 / 8:43 pm

    That dress with the white skirt looks simple but elegant but the Turtleneck jersey dress paired with your red heeled boots is a perfect match for that ideal day.

    • January 20, 2017 / 8:20 am

      Thank you, I love turtle neck dressed and wanted to give an idea for Valentine’s Day

    Loving both looks for Valentines day! The strapless bandage body contact is tres chic and will definitely be a hit. I love shoes and enjoy your selections for both occasions. Very nice!

    • January 20, 2017 / 8:20 am

      Thanks luv I love the bandage dress, it gives me life

  44. January 16, 2017 / 7:09 pm

    I really love that workday outfit. The boots give it a little bit of festivity without going over the top V Day 🙂

    • January 20, 2017 / 8:19 am

      Exactly, thanks so much

  45. January 16, 2017 / 6:44 pm

    These outfits would be perfect for Valentine’s Day! I’m not a fan of Feb 14th either (definitely agree it’s over commercialised) but that may be because I’ve always been single on Valentine’s!

    • January 20, 2017 / 8:19 am

      I can relate this year but even when I wasn’t I felt it was too commercial than what we want

  46. Ola Broom
    January 16, 2017 / 4:28 pm

    That gold and black skirt it IT! Actually, I see that it’s a dress. And a reasonably priced one too. Nice pick.

    • January 20, 2017 / 8:18 am

      Hahaha it does look a little bit like a skirt but it’s a dress and yes nicely pricesd

    Love the outfits! We are celebrating our V-Day a few days beforehand at a gala for my husband’s medical school. The outfit I bought was black and gold because it’s Martigras theme!

    • January 20, 2017 / 8:18 am

      Thanks Ana definitely tried something not too Valentine’s Day

  51. January 16, 2017 / 10:20 am

    That dress is stunning. I’ve never really been one for Valentines Day, we might go out for a nice meal the weekend before but I doubt I’ll go out on the day it will be too busy x

    • January 20, 2017 / 8:16 am

      Yea, I like going out before or even after the actual day as it’s less busy
