Valentine’s Day Outfit Idea + A Giveaway For You.

Valentine’s Day Outfit Idea + A Giveaway For You.

Fashion, Outfits

I actually wasn’t planning any valentine’s day look or outfit, However because the day is a very special one for me, (it’s the day I said yes to hubby… Yes! Yes! I am a February 14 geh…๐Ÿ˜‚ ). We always try to at least have an hang out, and as always, I try to look my best. #vain

So, when Tega of TegaEnai.Com reached out to me, that we should have a Valentine’s day outfit collaboration I was like yes baby! February goals is manifesting already. (Read about my other goals here). I got to work and created this beautiful piece that is available for preorder via this email.

Now that the advert is out of the way ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚, let’s get right into the outfit details…

Valentines Day

I am wearing

Top: Shapes&Colors l Jeggings: Atmosphere l Shoes: MissGuided & Zara l Purse: Redherring l Turban: Cornershop.

Vals Day Outfit Idea

Vals Day Outfit Idea

The only memo I served myself was; look HOT!!! This informed my choice of Fabric, Color Scheme and Design. So versus the classic Red or Pink quintessential choice, I went for a Black + White ensemble with a touch of red. ย I stayed on the memo by going for the off-shoulder top to catch hubby’s eye and send the *other room* signal ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚… and of course which fabric speaks the *other room* language more than a lacy fabric? In my opinion None!

Vals Day Outfit Idea

I decided to switch things up by incorporating the Turban, Pumps and the Red Purse. What do you think?

      I have left another comment. As soon as I saw ‘Toronto photo session’ I got so excited. If I win this giveaway, it will be the first I’ve ever won, and this is the second giveaway I will give a try. lol. I am probably rambling but I’ll really love to win the photo session, it will mean a lot.

    Hi dearie,
    I am the most qualified๐Ÿ˜Š for the package because I got the most blessed set of parents.
    These are people that have given most of what they have to take care of my sibling and I.
    For this singular reason which I didn’t really talk about its details. I look forward to always make them feel special in every way I can.

    Valentine season and giveaways are a big part of romance and love. Itโ€™s a special date that brings two lovers closer, and rekindles the love in a seasoned romance. Reasons why i think i deserve to win is i desire to keep my marriage exciting and new, just to make every moment special and enjoying each otherโ€™s company and basking in the warm glow of love on a pleasant day.

    Aww, I am back on this page. I stay in Toronto and would really appreciate a photo session with my fiance. He is into photography part-time (fun) and sometimes I double up as his assistant.

    It would be great to have someone take pictures of us for a change. Thanks and I hope we win this!

    Wow!!! Not used to doing stuff like this cos I feel most of them are just scams, but my MAIN MAN Ochuke, tag me on this post so Im gonna give it a shot. Plus, My Bae – Who I just proposed to on the surprise birthday she setup for me (who come surprise who…*winks*) is a huge fashionista and a cake lover!!!

    With Valentine’s day coming, there isnt a more fulfilling surprise than randomly winning something like this. I know I swept her off her feet when I proposed…winning this will forever keep her hands wrapped around me….hehehehehehe
