Okay so it’s Valentine ’s Day very, very soon and you know what that means.
Cute dates, dinners, movies, flowers, rings and most importantly, food! Unfortunately for me, I have a feeling I will be alone for V day, both my roommates have boyfriends and I will be in the house alone or wearing some headphones in my room surrounded by multiple packets of assorted Doritos and salsa and the remote control. Nevertheless I am very excited for all the fashion and of course, I will be buying myself some special (a new outfit, der) for the occasion, (treat yo’ self girl) as I do for every other occasion, even if the occasion is a Tuesday. But the shopping addiction is real and I have no plan on stopping myself because there is no better feeling than feeling beautiful even if I will be the only one seeing it, AMIRIGHT?! Anyway, I have been paying a lot of attention to denim lately and  I am IN LOVE! Recently, at Lily and Minx, we have received such amazing pieces by Madison Square Clothing and my love for denim has definitely stemmed from there. The trick with valentine’s day is simplicity. As Coco Chanel once said  “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” And speaking from experience, i could not agree more. Let’s just have a look at a few examples, modeled on the catwalk for New York Spring Fashion Week;


Narciso Rodriguez

Vera Wang

I absolutely adore these three outfits, they are simple yet stunning and show the right bits of skin without looking like Charlotte the harlot.
I feel like block colors and a bit of class is the way to catch your V-day Dates eye and if you’re going for a first date then let’s be real you don’t want to be rocking up in last year’s velvet body con dress with hooker heels,  you want to send the right message with your outfit.
On the date you are going to want to feel like a goddess and have confidence radiating beyond control. 

Outside date (Beach, Skating, Art class, Park picnic)

Picnic in the park date, Classic, romantic and simple date idea. I personally love this one.
You’re going to need either a long flowy skirt or some pants that are suitable for sitting down on the ground so you’re not showing off any bits (if you know what I mean). My newly found appreciation for denim has given me the opportunity to style some amazing outfits, in store that would be perfect for this kind of date.

Outdoorsy, Physical activity date. While this one might not be everybody’s cup of tea it’s still extremely cute and a great bonding experience for couple and of course while you have to be comfortable and able to move all limbs (which, I’m sorry ladies, means no tight jeans. You’re bum can look good in other ways I promise) you also need to look cute.
I’d suggest some comfy denim shorts and a simple top and a few accessories. A wide brim hat and some sunnies would perfectly top off the cute-casual look, with some Chuck Taylors or some comfy sandals.

Romantic Dinner date. These are not my kind of dates but i love getting dressed up none the less and because it’s the day to celebrate love, why not wear the colour of love and really turn heads.
We got these stunning dresses in not long ago and they have gone off!

Left: Pheonix Dress
Right: Sin City dress

These are both so stunning and sooo flattering on! I love the way the tangerine dress sits on your body and makes the cleavage look AMAZING!
Team with some block colour strappy heels and some bling and you’re set.

I also adore these cute , shorter, black and white dresses. Very elegant and such a great fit.

beloved Dress in Black and White

 Pair them with some strappy nude heels and a nude bag and you will look amazing and super stylish!
Anyway i’m off for today girls, hope you have an amazing valentines day and don;t forget everything you’ve seen on this post you can get at and look out for some amazing deals on the site aswell.
