For those finding it difficult to plan that perfect Valentines day, I've come up with some cute outfit and date ideas to inspire the romantic in you!
Sci-fi/ romance film 'Her' is set to be released this Valentines day. Directed by Spike Jonze and starring Joaquin Phoenix and the voice of Scarlett Johansson, it's a clever film exploring concepts of technology and relationships, perfect for indie-arty types. This bright red dress from Zara (1), a little sexy without being too obvious, would look gorgeous teamed with some boyish brogues and a decent sized clutch for an edgy look that isn't trying too hard.
An excellent date if you fancy trying something a bit more adventurous than cuddling in front of TV. This dress from Topshop (2) has long sleeves and decent bum coverage (in case you do fall!) and would look so cute with a beanie hat and cosy tights!
WALK IN THE PARK
Sometimes just a walk together, somewhere far away from your troubles, is the best way to make your favourite person feel special. Catching up with each other with no interruptions is the best way to reconnect and to remember why you are so happy together. Since the weather is still quite drab, why not shake it up a bit with clashing colours and bright patterns? This pretty skirt (3) with bold red roses is fun and flirty, and the bright pink jumper (4) will hopefully keep you cosy. Wear your favourite trainers and get two coffees to go.
A NIGHT IN
Firstly, make sure you prompt your other half if you want spoiled on a night in. It doesn't mean sitting around doing the same old. Hopefully they'll take cue and be an old romantic - flowers, a cute card, candles, dinner (or takeaway) and a massage. This sexy slip (5) will let them know they've done a half decent job!
