Celebrating your special relationships is always worth the investment but when you’re on a tight budget it can cause added stress.
My first valentine’s date with my husband was quite the occasion. We went and saw Mary Poppins in the West End and ate at my favourite chinese in Soho. I’ll never forget it, but 8 years into our marriage our budget doesn’t currently allow for theatre trips to London, but I want to make sure we spend the time appreciating our love for each other that has remained strong and true.
With the ever diminishing sense of occasion I personally love to make the effort to celebrate my marriage. I love having a reason to dress up, as being a mum in the country pretty much eliminates the chances to do so. But going all out can sometimes make you feel uncomfortable if your day-to-day wear is denims and trainers. My Valentine’s style guide will be smart casual as a sure way to keep the comfort and the class for this special date night.
Wearing your casual clothes and jazzing it up with some heels and great accessories is a simple way to dress up an everyday outfit. For me, my favourite accessory is always a red lipstick and valentine’s day is the perfect time get that lippie out.
I want to give a HUGE credit to my oldest daughter, Miss E, for taking two of the pictures – quite the pro, although she couldn’t stop giggling during the “couple’s” photos!
Happy Valentine’s xx
