My Dream Valentines Day Outfit

Michelle @ Daisybutter is running a valentines competition alongside Selfridges and Evian, in which you have to create your perfect valentines day outfit. Last summer, I entered her Holiday Hop competition with New Look, which I thoroughly enjoyed, so of course, I jumped at the chance at doing it all over again! Michelle creates such effortless outfit ensembles that always inspire me, and she's such a lovely girl, I'm thrilled to be able to enter another one of her competitions!  So, here's what I would wear for a romantic valentines evening...

Skater Mesh Insert Dress - Topshop

Structured dresses are huge this season, with cut out panels making a prominent appearance. This black number from Topshop skims your hips and gives a beautiful hour-glass impression, even if you still haven't shifted the Christmas weight! The sheer panel reveals your adventurous side, and is perfect for a cheeky valentines evening. My outfit would be adorned with sultry red hues, from the luxurious YSL clutch to the fiery platform heels. The contrast of black and red ensure the outfit is flirty, sensual and oozes sex appeal.

My eye makeup would revolve around shimmery browns, base from the iconic Urban decay palette, and dusted with Bobby Brown's sparkle eyeshadow to draw as much attention to my eyes as possible. Finish with a layer of Hypnose mascara and a quick swipe of Bronzer to stay picture perfect all night long.


To ensure Valentines day is extra special this year, I would spend the whole of the previous day pampering myself! I have a plethora of lotions and potions to ensure I'm looking my best from head to toe for this extra special night...


Sex Bomb - Lush
Diptyque Scented Candle - John Lewis
Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask - Hairtrade
Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser - Clarins
Glycolactic Radiance Mask - Ren
Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair - Selfridges
Tender is the Night Massage bar - Lush



First, I would run a long bubble bath with one of Lush's gorgeous bath bombs - my favourite being Sex Bomb for its sensual mix of clary sage, jasmine and ylang ylang essential oils. My favourite candle, by Diptyque, would be lit, my conditioning hair mask would be on and I'd tuck in to a good book to relax. After a good half an hour, my secret facial weapons would come out to leave my complexion glowing. I'd start off my exfoliating with my favourite one by Clarins and then apply a radiance-boosting face mask for the ultimate pamper experience. To finish off, I'd apply Estee lauder's advanced night repair to give me a glowing complexion for the day ahead.

Once done in the bath, I would then douse myself in Lush's special edition Tender is the Night massage bar to ensure my skin is silky smooth! Finally, I would of course paint my nails. My colour of choice would be Illamasqua for fiery reds, and of course, a hint of glitter! I'll be sparkling under the lights all night long, my look oozing confidence due to the risque red accents. I'm certain this Valentines day will be the one.
