As you may have seen, I recently teamed up with some fabulous British bloggers to do a huge giveaway. It was so much fun to work with these awesome bloggers and so we've decided to keep the name 'Brit Pack' and all create a post with the same theme, on the same day once a month. This month's theme was an obvious choice, happy Valentine's Day everyone!
Valentine's Day is a funny old day, people either love it or think it is completely cheesy. I know I certainly don't need one day to tell Mark that I love him but it is always a good excuse to get a nice card and go for a nice meal to celebrate ;) Mark actually has a corporate day at work today so we celebrated last weekend instead. This pink dress is a go to whenever Mark and I go somewhere for a 'fancy date' and has been for years (you have to love an outfit that still fits when you have gained or lost a little bit of weight!) I love the colour of this dress and the fit is oh so flattering. The fact that I only spent £7 on it is just the icing on the (cleverly disguised) cake...

The one thing to watch with this dress is just how low cut it is. It looks (and is) very low cut here and that is even after I pinned it on the bodice. A little bit of cleavage is no bad thing on a date though, you just have to remember not to lean forward too much! ;) If I am going out, I normally wear a lot more make up but I kept it pretty simple with this. I always sweep my hair to one side as it is too fussy with it down but looks far too exposed with it up. This Barbie pink lipstick is my favourite at the moment, it looks so much fresher than my usual red lipstick. Can you tell I'm craving Spring time already?!
You have to love a bit of tummy disguising drapery, just imagine how much food you can disguise behind it! It also removes the need for any jewellery as it is fancy enough without it, which is always a bonus - I find it difficult enough choosing shoes and a bag, let alone jewellery as well!
What is your staple date outfit? Do you celebrate Valentine's day?
