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!
