Hey darling, this is my Valentine's Day look.

Hearts and flowers, the best choice for the day of love!
berries, fascinator, jazzafine
Who could ever resist those berries? They look almost better than real berries, I swear.

Flowers? Oh thank you, I already have loads of them. ;-)

Aren't they pretty and like from a baroque painting?

And the perfect Valentine's Day shoes can't be missed.

My love for Melissa is eternal for sure.

Finally the time has come to reveal my look for Valentine's Day! This year I was excited about this day and my look like never before. I already planed my outfit weeks ago and couldn't barely wait to go out with it. The obvious choice for a Valentine's Day look would be to wear all red or pink, but this year I had something a little bit different in mind: An outfit like a baroque still life with flowers and berries.

Not as a symbol of the evanescence of my love, like what the painters expressed with their work during the period of Baroque, but as a lush sign of joy. Therefore no broken glasses, no skulls and no insects hidden behind the flowers, just petals in vibrant colours. Yes to lavishness, yes to love!

I was a little bit worried if the dress would fit my curvy body, but when it arrived I was surprised that it even flattered my shape in a way not many dresses do. The cute berry fascinator is from Jazzafine's "My Funny Valentine Collection". The berries are very tempting to take a bite, because they look almost better than real. I think this little hat will find it's way into my everyday accessories.

We went for dinner at our favourite Indian restaurant to celebrate. What a good start for the weekend! My darling loved my outfit very much, especially the flower dress. Now I'm curious to hear your opinion my lovelies!

How did you spend your Valentine's Day and what did you wear?

My Outfit: 
Dress: Paper Dolls at Zalando, Shoes: Mel, Fascinator: Jazzafine,
Tights: H&M, Sunnies: H&M (not recent)

Thanks to Jazzafine for the fascinator.
