Valentine’s Day Date style with Simply Be  |  Collaboration 

Note: This is a collaborative post with Simply Be

As we all know, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it is the perfect excuse to get dressed up and head out for the night (or day if your like me and in bed by 9pm because you have a non sleeping baby!!) and head out for a date with your loved one. I always find dressing for dates really hard as I want to be comfortable but I also want to feel glam and gorgeous so when Simply Be offered me the chance to put together a few outfits from their range, I was excited to see what I could come up with.

The first look I chose was for a less formal, day time date. I think this look would be perfect for a trip to the cinema or maybe an afternoon pub lunch. You could easily pair it up with a leather jacket for an edgy look or with your favourite coat and oversize scarf for a really snugly feel.

This black, frill sleeved dress is a must have in my opinion as it is so versatile and so easy to wear. It doesn't cling to anywhere is shouldn't and the buttons along the front have a slimming effect which is always a plus in my book. It's the kind of dress and that easily be dressed up with a cute pair of ankle boots like I have for this look, or you could go even more casual with a pair of converse or trainers. Speaking of the boots, these wide fit ankle boots are the most comfortable ankle books I have ever owned! Usually I find ankle boots are either uncomfortable around the actual ankle or they seem to squish my toes. These boots did neither and they are such a staple item to have you in collection. I have finished off this casual date look with a pop of red with the handbag. For me, valentines day is all about the red and seeing as I am not confident enough to go out with a red dress, it seems only fitting that I should inject a flash of red with the handbag.

The next outfit I chose was a more formal outfit that may not be suitable for trip to your local Nandos...although if wanted to wear this for that then why not?? More power to you! I think this outfit would be perfect for a romantic dinner somewhere posh or a night a swanky wine bar in the town.

This dress is actually advertised as a bridesmaids dress but I think the colour along with the lace detailing and the sweetheart neckline make it perfect for Valentines day. The dress is so forgiving and falls beautifully. I honestly felt stunning when I wore it and I think this is one of the most important things when your picking clothes. Because the dress is quite detailed and intricate across the top, I've kept the accessories very simple and plain. Black is always my go to when it comes to accessories because it goes with everything and these shoes are perfect for this dress. They help the dress look 'younger' as such as it could become quite a formal dress is worn with a closed toe shoe. I paired the shoes with a simple clutch bag that I hold without the strap as I think it would look better. Finally I have finished this outfit off with a couple of pieces of heart based jewelry because it's valentines day so why not??
