OOTD - Burgundy Cape Dress


As a former Valentine's Day nay-sayer, it actually makes me laugh to think about how much I've embraced the holiday!  Maybe it's because this Hallmark holiday comes along with flowers, hearts and a pink colour palette but I think it's definitely due to the fact that it's a day where we just celebrate love.  I'm definitely getting softer as I get older!  In line with the season, I chose this gorgeous cape dress from online boutique LANGsura.  It's called The Monarch, and I totally see why - I feel a bit like a butterfly in it! Toss on some knee-high boots (it is still winter, after all) and a bold lip and I'm ready to hit the town for Valentines Day!

Dress - LANGsura, Boots - Zara







What do you think?  Are you a Valentine's Day lover or would you rather do without it?  What about a Valentine's Day convert like me?  Let me know!

    1. Thanks Eleni! I used to be such a Valentine's Day grouch, but now I appreciate any holiday where I don't have to make dinner LOL!

    1. Just wait Kris - I never thought that I would be into Valentine's Day, but the thought of not having to make dinner for a night is enough to turn me into a Love Day cheerleader!

  5. I am in no way a girl who likes Valentine's Day (seriously, I've either been single or disappointed by it)...but I do love pink and all of the girly goodies that come with the holiday. That dress is gorgeous!

  7. What an amazing dress! Love it. As for VDay, I'm a bit indifferent. I do love any excuse to celebrate love, but I don't particularly partake in the commercialism of it all. We like to stay at home, cook a special meal together and cuddle up with a movie we've both agreed on lol ;) xx
