I'm a die hard die hard fan, not sure I'm a die hard romantic, you will have to ask Mr Closet-Stylist. I appreciate not everyone will be GOING OUT OUT this Valentines weekend!!! Sometimes we do, sometimes we don't, sometimes we might take 3 additional hot dates (our sons). My husband peaked with a surprise Valentines Day proposal a few years ago, he roped in the kids, it was very cute since then he's officially off duty from making plans. He done good.
Alternatively some of you might prefer to date your sofa this weekend because it is hands down a preferable option to some of the 'available' prospects on the market today. This blog is specifically for the ladies who have asked for date night suggestions for the weekend. It seems that post COVID everyone who is everyone is going out for Valentines Weekend! So here goes!
PS. I am actually going out, we have tickets to see "Death on the Nile" - a film about a honeymoon murder, so very romantic! I made the plans...
YOU ARE NOT TOO OLD FOR MINIS
For those that want to look smoking hot and really fancy putting on something a little short. Why not pull out that LDB or any mini you have and give it a whirl? Get the pins out ladies. And do NOT
tell me you are too old to wear a mini - I will slap you. How extra is this coat from Stories, I swear if I wasn't a monochrome lover...
H&M Fine Knit Polo Neck - £35
RI Faux Leather Mini - £32
H&M Imitation Leather Skirt - £17.99
A WINK OF PINK DATE
A colour I love, but not on me! I have so much pink and colour in my home but don't wear it. If you are to follow fashion you will know that 'colour' is in this year. I'm sorry but it's always in, if you like to wear it! Be brave and wear strong colours together - pink and orange / blue and green... give it a go! Perhaps for Valentines Night you might fancy a hot pink number? Here are a few suggestions?
Mango Gathered Details Dress - £49.99
Mango Bronze Sandals - £35.99
Orange Croc Bag - £40
Asos Linked Earrings - £6.99

THE LBD DATE
The LBD, everyone should have one. It really is a thing. It's akin to the blazer in throw it on look chic and go! I love this Mango one - a little racy but I am here for that! There are some alternatives below too. I have included this bag from Zadig & Voltiare, one of my favourite brands, if you don't know them check them out.

NOT SURE HOW DRESSY TO BE CASUAL PUB DATE
You know type of outing where you want to look nice but not OTT. Jeans and a nice top - need I say more? Here are some of the nicest nice tops I have found. Sezane is a favorite brand of mine, I wanted to introduce you to another of my French favourites - Jerome Dreyfuss - simply the best bags and I will be including them in an investment bag blog later on this year.

Jerome Dreyfuss Leopard Bag - £526 (shop around for them, I got mine from Fenwicks) not often stocked in the UK.
