Dress- Veromoda, Blazer- Veromoda, Shoes- Zara
There's always some amount of pressure to dress up for date nights and that only gets intensified when you're required to put together a look for that globally acclaimed day of love! There are no rules and you could obviously not care and rock your favourite baesics while you gulp down delicious food or dress up in your fancy best for that fine dine date or even a party with the girls or even just read your favourite book in your comfy pyjamas! A few years back, the two targets to hit, while choosing my ensemble for the night were the venue & of course an attempt at dressing to impress the guy! 5 years on, I only dress for myself and thankfully, I'm with a guy who could careless about the outer layer. Most of us lead such crazy, hectic lives that taking a day off seems like such a task even if it's under the pretext of love! The hours of work you'd miss, the number of assignments you could have completed, how your colleague might beat you to that presentation, if these are the things that haunt your mind while you're trying to pretend to relax, time to join workaholics anonymous! I won't lie, I'm kind of on the edge of this syndrome which is why, I've learnt to take these designated special days as an excuse to let my hair down and surprisingly it let's me dance the night away, guilt free. Take my advice and try it this Sunday!
Now about this look! Obviously you've seen the pictures and you know where it's from but I can't refrain from sharing my thought process behind selecting it. So, initially the blazer was really what my mind was set on but I wasn't convinced with just pairing it up with my tightest skinny jeans so I jumped the gun and paired it with this metallic beauty. It's a simple dress, in this gorgeous gold fabric which hugs you in the right places and adds that something special to the night! Anything overtly sparkly can be a bit too much post those NYE parties but a little glimmer won't hurt anyone. I loved the way the rust and subtle gold looked together so I decided to skip the crazy accessories, keeping it simple with a pair snakeskin of black pumps & a red pout. If you still haven't found your outfit yet, check out Veromoda's new spring/summer collection or dig inside that closet! And when you're done, I hope you can you excuse yourself for a few hours and have a wonderful Valentine's Day in the closeness of the people you love.
