Valentine’s day is just around the corner, the tradition behind the celebration has many legends. I remember clearly back in school the story of a priest called St. Valentine who was martyred in the third century for marrying young couples against the emperor’s decree. The story isn’t consistent, however it represents a beautiful occasion where romance & love is celebrated. This alone means it should be cherished, especially considering all the pain and unrest in the world today.
Valentine’s day is a special time of year for some, equally, it can evoke skepticism in others. I’m constantly looking for an excuse to dress up and passionate ‘fire truck red’ is my favourite colour so whether you’re in love or loveless, whether you’ll be wearing that red dress on a date night or you’ll be brazing the moody weather and lounge on the beach, here’s two simple ways to style the little red dress.
Wearing Armani Exchange Dress, Chloe Sunnies, Bershka Headband and no label straw bag
The round oversized sunnies and headband gave the dress a retro vibe, adding a straw beach bag and you’re set for the beach!
Wearing Bebe Dress, Stuart Weiztman Sandals, YSL Sling Bag
And if you plan to go straight to dinner, you can easily wear sandals and pair it with a sling bag for a chic romantic look.
Happy Valentines day!
