Not only does February bring slightly lighter evenings and the promise of spring around the corner, it also brings Valentine’s Day. Loved by many, feared by some and hated by the rest it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. However, I’m all up for any kind of event that allows me to outfit plan. Plus as we’ve evolved into various connotations of the day like ‘Galentines’ Day it’s not just about having a partner to share it with, you can rock it being single too.
Of course I had to theme the outfits on something and what better than Pink (well, red actually but I didn’t want to be too cliche you know!)
Partners Night Out
My first outfit choice is what I’ll be wearing for Valentine’s dinner with my OH. Its already featured on my blog, as the guys at Wolf and Whistle sent it over for me to try out. The Ombré Floral Midi Dress (£65) is part of their new Curve range and I’m wearing a well fitting size 20 here (it goes up to a size 26). It’s great as the midi length is perfect for my height but will also look great on you gals that are shorter too, there’s nothing more crass than flashing your pants at dinner for anyone is there!? The print is beautiful and the straps are wide enough for a well supporting bra to be concealed beneath. Winner.
I paired it with a little clutch from Accessorize and these nude heels from MissGuided. Do not think for one minute these heels are comfy but for all the sitting down that happens at dinner they are fine!
Partners Night In
Well I had to include some lingerie didn’t I?! Personally I’ll be throwing on the PJ’s (see below) but for those that like a nice pretty underwear set then I’m crushing on this ASOS Curve Blush Fan Lace Set (£32) as it’s lightly padded and so pretty. It goes up to a size 42G and size 30 briefs, however there is a pretty non padded black or red one that’s beautiful that goes up to a size 44H, which I don’t think I’ve seen before from ASOS own brand. It isn’t pink so it doesn’t get included ‘officially’ in this edit but I had to draw your attention to it as it’s beautiful!
Girls Night Out
If you’re painting the town red then it’s time to ramp it up! I actually can’t remember the last time I had a night out properly, but if I was going on one I’d be wearing these Zip Side PU Treggings (£22) and this gorgeous Blush Pink Lace Top from Simply Be (£35). My sandals above would match this outfit too, but as they aren’t the best for dancing all night in I’d probably go for a platformed pair like these light pink velvet ones also from Simply Be (£29). I have a similar version in black which are some of the comfiest heels I own!
Girls Night In
More wine and nibbles than keys in a bowl for this slumber party so comfy is key! I’m a big fan of River Island Plus PJ’s, I have last season’s giraffe print which I love – their pink floral set is close to selling out so be quick. This pink satin fuchsia pair from our sponsors Nine X are affordable and super cute too, so I think I’ll be giving them a try out for sure! They go up to a 6XL which is the equivalent to a size 24.
Whatever you’re up to, I hope you look and feel fabulous and have a lovely day! Let us know what you get up to via our socials below!
