Time for the final look in my Valentine's Day lookbook! Something a little more intimate and cheeky for the night time if you know what I'm sayinnnnnnnn ;) Unfortunately for me I'll be in bed on my own in the most comfy, unflattering PJs but if I did have a special someone, I'd pop on this pretty little underwear set and dusty pink slip, both surprisingly from Primark. I think the cover up is actually meant for the day, but thought it would look super cute with this set. I'd also like to add - please don't everyone lose your shit over photos of someone in their underwear. Oh my god scandal, someone is feeling confident and not afraid to show it. If you're feeling good girlies, embrace it and flaunt it! It's your body, YOU DO YOU BOO BOO.

Onto the next Valentine's Day look! This one I styled for an evening date - a meal, drinks, or anything a little fancy. I'm wearing a flirty bardot shoulder dress from New Look that is super easy to be dressed up or down, and despite it being out of stock there are loads more similar dresses (here, here and here) on their site that are equally as pretty.
I added these black grided heels as I am finally able to just squeeze into them (these are definitely not for people with average to larger calves like myself though, you can see the squidge on my leg creeping over the top haha) but I totally love them so wanted to wear them.
Again, these pictures were taken by the very talented Katherine McMorran. Check out her work on her Instagram and website!

As the day of l-o-v-e is just round the corner (because of course we can only show each other that we love them on one day of the year), I thought I'd share a few outfits that I thought would be cute for different occasions during Valentine's Day. Whilst I am saying all of this, I am feeling incredibly bitter, lonely and sad about boys and love and all that poopy stuff. I'll be spend the day on my own, probably crying, eating too much, and waiting for Paris and Laura to come home from work so we can all cry together. LOVIN' LIFE.
Anyway, that aside, if there is an excuse to put together a little lookbook for an occasion then I'm all about it. I have one look for a date taking place in the day, another for the evening, and then a cheekier one for the night time (if you know what I'm sayin', bowchickawowow *winks and shoots finger guns*). To start us off, I put together this casual but cute look with a vintage Levi's denim jacket, thigh high booties for a little bit of sex appeal and a pleather overall in a very typically Valentine's colour - rouge.
These photos, as well as the rest taken for my Valentine's lookbook coming the rest of this week, were taken by the very talended Katherine McMorran. She's a photographer based down here in Falmouth who contacted me to see if I wanted to be included in her blogger series. I'll write a post next week dedicated just her project and the pictures she took but until then, take a look at my day look!

I know double denim isn't to everyone's taste and some find it difficult to 'pull off' (who even invented the ability to pull something off anyway, just wear whatever you want gurl), but the easiest way in my opinion is to pair black with blue. This way, it looks a lot more like a normal pair of black trousers in this case with a denim shirt. Super easy.
I added some really cute little bits from Daisy Mae Jewellery to this look as well. I love layering little silver necklaces with chokers like this, and on their site they have SO many different pendants to choose from all for a ridiculously good price, you should definitely have a look!

As much as I am a sucker for the whole 'new-year-new me', 'I'm gonna make my life so much better this year', 'this is gonna be my year' stuff, I have found (like many) in the past that I don't get much further than the first month with resolutions. Something I tried in 2015 that I found quite successful though, was to think of 12 different resolutions and spread them across the year (so one a month, genuis huh). This way I can focus on one at a time and most times, not fail. Also, as a habit is generally made after around 21 days and if it is something that I really want to stick to, I will be able to carry it on throughout the year as the habit will have stuck and I can easily move onto the next resolution.
Like you may have seen in my second to last post/most recent video, 2016 was a tough year for me so adding monthly resolutions into that would have made my head explode. As I am a lot more together mentally and less busy physically, I can spend this year really focussing on self improvement. Like I did in 2015, each month I'll share that month's resolution so you can join me if you wish, get inspiration for your own monthly challenges or just see how I'm getting along!
To start me off, I didn't give myself a specific resolution for January as I wanted to spend the month getting organised, in the right mindset and settling into a new routine. My mind has done a full 180 this month alone and I am in such a better place, so am really excited to get started on my new challenges. February's resolution will be to excersize once a day. Not full blown, 2 hour, sweaty, achey gym work outs everyday (although some will be), some days will just be a handful of crunches, squats and press-ups. But the main idea is that I do something everyday without quitting. Over on my pinterest I have also made a board with easy, at-home work outs that I can refer to on days when I don't swim or gym, so feel free to have a look if you want some ideas!
Will you be trying out anything like this? Let me know if you do and what your resolution ideas are as I'd love to get inspired by you!
