Valentine’s Day In Burgundy Monochrome

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you for tomorrow! This isn’t the outfit I’m wearing for it, but it’s one that I put together as I was inspired by the love red colour scheme. It’s a monochrome burgundy look! I’ve mixed different textures, prints and colours though so it doesn’t look too much like a suit and the pieces stay as individuals. The reason I’m posting this today instead of tomorrow though is because I’m spending actual Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend and making a day of it, I’m very excited! What are your plans?

I was wearing my older J Brand Skinny Jeans in Velvet Lava with my Topshop Red Heart Print Shirt. I think these two work together quite well as the combination of velvet with a light printed shirt looks quite good. I wore my Zara Burgundy Blazer over the top for warmth though. I was deciding on the black blazer that I have, but it just didn’t look right. I did choose my Topshop Black Heels though as I thought having burgundy shoes would make it too much, ha ha. For my accessories, I chose my Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB in Port and some loose gold bangles and then finished off with a cherry red lip. What do you think of the outfit? Comment and let me know as always! I love reading what you have to say! You can also check out my last minute Valentine’s Day gift guide if you are stuck for ideas!

    You look beautiful and am loving the velvet pant you rocking in this picture, You sure did a good job in matching the colors up and not making it look too overdone.

    Very cute! The velvet jeans are so 70’s, but modern at the same time so I love it. And the hearts are just so adorable. I hope you and Adam have a wonderful day 🙂
