Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s day with your girlfriends, or thinking of things to do with your SO next week, I’ve got you covered! Below I’ve curated a few of my favorite outfits along with ideas I’m mulling over for this upcoming holiday ❤ ❤ ❤
This will probably be the most likely setting for our Valentine’s Day celebration (if you like low-key homebody activities 😉 ). Also, I am obsessed with this adorable little lounge set from AKG. First of all, it is locally made/designed, and the fabric is comfortable and so breathable! I’m not much of a lace lingerie girl, so for this occasion I wanted to find something modest, comfortable, and still feminine (and I can continue wearing this for the months to come!). Take a peek below for some date ideas, as well as links to what I’m wearing.
1. Valentine’s Picnic Basket from Scanway (available February 10 – 19, 2017)
Who doesn’t love to have a romantic indoor picnic in their warm and cozy living room? You can choose between a number of options, plus they really got me when I read tenderloin, truffle, chocolate, and florentines. Pair it with your favorite bottle of wine, and you’ll be good to go. Yum.
2. Spa Night
Pamper yourselves by grabbing your favorite bath products, scented candles etc. and prepare to have a relaxing night in. See some of my favorite products below:
Blackberry Bath Bomb – Lush
Soft Coeur Massage Bar – Lush
Fresh Fig Honey Bath – Laura Mercier
Cocoa Butter Body Butter – The Body Shop
Tantra Massage Oil – Saje
3. Weekend Getaway at Atlantica Oak Island
Bring your pjs for the weekend and prepare for an ultimately relaxing getaway. Have breakfast in bed, take cooking lessons, go wine tasting, and do yoga together.
What I’m Wearing:
Chloe Bralette – AKG
Kate Brief – AKG
*find them in-store at Makenew on 2468 Agricola St.
Okay, this blouse totally caught my eye when I first saw it – it carries the embroidery trend feel but uses velvet flowers instead! I paired it with a denim bottom to dress it down, but added a fun sandal heel (don’t you LOVE the faux fur?! I couldn’t help myself when I saw these babies online 😉 ). Obviously if you are doing an outdoor activity, I would recommend changing up the footwear to match the weather, but these were too fun to not share! Take a peek below for some date ideas, as well as links to what I’m wearing.
1. Valentine’s Food Crawl
What is more fun than reminiscing with your sweetheart while chowing down on a Valentine’s themed food crawl? There are at least 20 stops, and under $10 at each location ❤
2. The Coast’s Valentine’s Doughball
A one hour dessert & wine tasting session from 11 local vendors – need I say more?
3. Curling Tournament of Broken Hearts – Good Robot
If you’re looking for something more active with a quirky theme, grab your friends (or another couple) and get your curl on!
What I’m Wearing:
Devore Plunge Swing Top – TOPSHOP
Helena Straight Leg Jean – GRLFRND
Vamp Faux Fur Sandal – Zara (find similar ones here and here)
Here I wanted to share my take on “dressier” outfits without wearing a dress or skirt (while we’re still braving the cold winter, I’d much rather stick to pants 🙂 ). I love the play on feminine details with the wider sleeves, peek of skin, and softer tones, plus these are two outfits you can also bring into the Spring season! Take a peek below for some date ideas, as well as links to what I’m wearing.
1. Decadence – Savour Food & Wine Festival
Start your Valentine’s weekend off indulging at the Decadence event as part of the Savour Food & Wine Festival. I mean you really can’t go wrong when there’s cheese, chocolate, AND wine pairings involved.
2. Feeling the Love Dinner & Dance
A Valentine’s soiree for couples, singles, and friends – think funk, jazz, and cocktails!
What I’m Wearing:
Edie Flute Sleeve Top – TOPSHOP
Domme Pant – Club Monaco
Ivette Sandal – Jimmy Choo
Brax Jimpsuit – Wilfred
Mod Tapestry Pouch – Wilfred
