Another year, another valentine’s day and another excuse to pretend like its the only day to show some love. Ha!!

Are you a valentine’s day person? What I mean by that is, are you one of the people who take the opportunity to spruce up and hit the romantic lane?

Valentine’s day isn’t and shouldn’t be the only day we show love but, I find nothing wrong with making that day significant for you and your partner. I definitely think its a good excuse for the parents who barely get time off from their children to do something special for themselves. I’m by no means a love expert but, it is not always about money when it comes to celebrating love. Doing something simple as dressing up and taking a stroll in town. This will open up a whole new dialogue between spouses. Couples can also send the children to the grandparents and use the house as a picnic park. Play some games and share some lovely hand written notes about each other. The possibilities are endless!

Now lets talk about this effortless outfit that is comfortable and sexy at the same time. This can be recreated easily. If you’re not a heels person, you can replace it with a nice converse and still look good. The funky’ness of the embroideredΒ denim jacketΒ adds a little edge to the outfit. The fit is wonderful, -oversized but, not too big. By the look of the jacket, I think the colour will come off a bit when washed. Nonetheless, I love it and wore this to a party. The whole outfit is under fifty pounds.

Hope your week is going well. Have a good one!

    I agree with you sis. A lot of things are too commercialized these days. We should celebrate love everyday, not just one day out of 365. You look gorgeous in red. That dress is everything. If you wash the jacket with fabric softener, it should be fine. The hair is everything sis!

    • January 25, 2018 / 4:56 pm

      You couldn’t have put it any better sis. Agreed too!! Thanks so much for the contribution and the advice.

    Yes, you’re correct, love should be displayed all year. These days I just do extra for my children on Valentine’s day.

    • January 25, 2018 / 4:49 pm

      Wonderful!! That’s good to hear that. I might do the same too.
      Thanks much for passing through Petula.

  4. January 25, 2018 / 2:22 pm

    Wow, not started thinking of Valentine’s day yet. But I don’t usually set aside one day to show love and appreciation for the significant other anyway. Every day can be valentine’s day! Anyway, I am loving the outfit – especially the jacket. I love your suggestion to wear it with converses. Very nice!



    • January 25, 2018 / 5:04 pm

      Every day can be a valentine’s day indeed Madeline. Agreed!! Thanks very much!

  5. January 25, 2018 / 5:08 pm

    The jacket is very romantic with the heart flowers. You styled it so effortlessly with the red dress, Mavis. You truly are the Queen of Effortless Style! I love your hair too! Hope you are having a great week!

    This red dress is so strikingly beautiful on you and I LOVE that jacket with the embroidery. I always see small acts of love shown on days when you don’t expect it to be the most rewarding!

      I couldn’t agree more. Good to hear hat Carrie.

    I love this outfit! That red dress looks fantastic on you and pairing it with that black denim jacket was such a stylish choice. I also really like the red details on the jacket. The black pumps are the perfect way to finish off this outfit. You look great!

    When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I like to celebrate it but stress free. My partner and I, usually don’t have big expectations of this day, instead we like to celebrate it in some small way, if nothing else then by going for a stroll in the town or something like that. We sometimes plan a little trip, drive away from the city and that sort of thing.

    I remember how once I prepared a romantic dinner for us but some friends came over without announcement so that romantic dinner turned out a bit less romantic that I imagined:) but it was still alright. Celebrating love is always good, what is important is not to be obsessive about it. Just like with any holidays, it can turn bitter if we have unrealistic expectations.

    • January 27, 2018 / 11:23 am

      Awesome and good to hear that it’s a great styling in your eyes.
      That sounds great to me. If I had a partner I would do the same too. I love stress-free things!
      Hahaha….I hate when friends show up unannounced but, yeah I do agree that it can be fun too.
      Realistic expectations and goals are always the best.
      Thanks so much for sharing your views. Appreciated Ivana! Happy weekend! πŸ™‚

    That’s a stunning red dress and I love the embroidery on your jacket! πŸ™‚ We don’t tend to do anything special for Valentines day – just as well as finding time for anything special with two little ones doesn’t always happen, haha!

    Hope that you are having a good week πŸ™‚ It’s Australia day today, so a public holiday which is nice πŸ™‚

      Thanks much beauty!! Ha – I definitely agree. I’ve one child and I can even relate.
      I spent my Friday in the hospital due to food poisoning but, much better now by the grace of God.
      Hope you had a good holiday then. πŸ™‚ Happy weekend too!

  13. January 26, 2018 / 10:59 am

    I love the funkiness of this outfit. A classic red silhouette sans jacket and then comes that edginess from the rose embroidered outerwear. I definitely prefer this look with heels but hey, why not go crazy with Dr Martens or some boyish style booties….
    Thanks for sharing,
    Simone xoxo

    • January 27, 2018 / 11:19 am

    My answer is easy: I’m definitely not a Valentine’s person πŸ™‚ In my generation it is still not usual in Bavaria to celebrate it. But I love what you show here as outfit for this day!
    With love from Bavaria/Germany, Rena

      Ha!! Is okay Rena! It is not for everybody.

    V Day is pretty much another excuse for us to go eat some yummy food! As a teacher, Valentine’s Day means a whole bunch of very sugared up 6 and 7 year olds haha.
    I love the combo of this outfit though! It’s perfect!

    I agree with you on your take on V day, it should be the only day you love. Anyways I’m not really big on V day but it’s nice to know you are appreciated once in a while. Nice outfit.

    I only care about Valentines day when I’m dating and coincidentally I’m usually single on this day year after year(it’s starting to worry me). I think love should be celebrated everyday and not in just one day but I’m still single. I love the red dress and the fact that it is Midi dress thus very elegant and that jacket makes wanna give you my home address so that you can send that edgy piece my way!

    • January 29, 2018 / 11:09 pm

      Hahahahaa…..gurllll you and I both!! Don’t worry our men are on their way coming. God is preparing them for us.
      Ha!! Thanks so much. Gotta love a good midi dress isn’t it? Send over and will send away. Ha!!

    I love your Valentine’s Day look. And I wouldn’t really call myself a VDay person. I mean, I do like a good pink and red color combo, but I’m not one of those people who goes all out on Feb. 14. I just like the cutesy things that go on sale in the month of February (even if I never buy any of them, lol).

    Should I start by talking about the hair cut or the denim jacket! infant send it over here i need to approve it before you go on a valentines date with it ha! Your dress was a great pair to the denim jacket.
    I love everything about this look doll and sure valentines day shouldn’t be the only day to show we care and love but presents can come.
