Allsaints Gemini Metallic Pink Jumper Outfit
First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day! I know not everyone celebrates it, but if you’re not in a relationship, that doesn’t matter either! It’s a day for love and appreciation and that reaches far beyond your relationship status, especially since we have Galentine’s Day now too, for the girls to spend together! I always feel like love is so important, it truly is what makes the world go round and what makes us happy, so make sure your loved ones know how you feel, whether that’s family, friends, or a significant other, and of course not forgetting our pets!
Now for me, I’m not usually too fussed with doing anything on Valentine’s as I always believe in showing how you feel as often as possible, not just once a year on a set day because that’s the rule, however, Adam had persuaded me this year to do something and I’m super excited for it. This may sound really lame to a lot of you, but we’re going to spend it doing a completely normal day, but without work! I know that might sound strange, but whenever we go out on the weekends (we do long distance so we only spend some weekends together) it’s always work related, so even if we go to town to have lunch, we always have to do a photoshoot before we eat, sometimes two (for both of us), as well as be on social media, so we never get to fully relax. With that in mind, Adam said lets have a day of no photos and no social media. It doesn’t sound like much, but to someone in our industry, it’s a huge gesture!
So, we’re planning a day of simple, regular activities like going out to lunch, going to a gelato shop that he hasn’t been to yet (I love their sorbet), going to look around the furniture shops, picking up some snacks for later, a walk through the park to feed the squirrels and birds their nuts, and then one of my favourite romance movies for the evening – Letters To Juliet (that’s what the snacks were for) and while we’re doing all this, not taking any photos, not using social media and just enjoying it for what it is. I am going to make sure I take one photo though of us together, just to remember the day with, but absolutely nothing work related and I couldn’t be happier! When I read this back though, I see how simple it is and how the little things in life really are what count towards our happiness, as I feel like this is taken too much for granted.
Now getting to my Valentine’s Day outfit, I wore my new Allsaints Gemini Metallic Pink Jumper that I actually bought a few months ago during the Black Friday sales. You saw it on Instagram and in a previous post when I shared an up close picture (see here) of the metallic stitching as it’s gorgeous, so you’re finally seeing it worn! I styled it with my Topshop Corduroy Skirt in Cream (you saw it before here) and my Topshop Blush Pink Ella Boots which I also wore with this skirt last time as it’s a great combo. I then finished it off with my Celine Micro Belt Bag in Clay.
When it comes to putting outfits together for Valentine’s Day, I’m usually all about going bright with bold reds or intense pinks and often opting for dresses as you’ve seen from the past years, however this year I wanted to make it much more subtle, more sophisticated, classic and understated. I think the pop of mauve and dusky pink from the jumper and boots is enough to give off a romantic air to the ensemble, but the way the jumper is worn slouchy (I took a size small) and styled with neutral pieces just makes it suitable for any other day as well, which is why I like it. It can be taken in any way you want it, and perfectly suitable for Valentine’s! I would love to know how you’re spending your Valentine’s Day and of course, please do tell me what you think of the outfit! Lorna xx.
