What to Wear for that Valentine’s Day Proposal

Many friends of mine have gotten the “big” proposal on Valentine’s Day and are now living happily married lives. Love day is almost here and if you have a feeling that wedding bells are about to ring in your future,  it’s nice to step up the wardrobe.  Wearing red is a great way to go to celebrate but Burgundy and pink are strong contenders. Pick one accessory and add it to a great pair of jeans and a great looking top.  A red shoe is a sizzling addition to a sleek black dress or jeans look. And you’ll be surprised how much use you get out of a red shoe—It always hits the right note to lend a bit of sizzle to an outfit.

Things to remember: The best show of affection and love is a quiet one. Try not to let your expectations run wild for what your loved one has planned. It’s a difficult night to get a reservation and sometimes a quiet dinner at home with a simple floral arrangement and a bit of champagne says more about love than an expensive night out with reservations that were secured months in advance. Many a Valentine’s Day has been ruined by unrealized expectations.

If you are planning a stay at home night, make it super special and romantic with a change of tableware or the addition of red or pink napkins. Roses and candles are a must for a romantic table setting.

But whether you have a coveted reservation at a special eatery or if you are setting the table at home, dress up! It will put you in the mood for love!
