A Peachy Keen Valentine’s Day Outfit
Yes, I had to give this post a title like that, because there is just so much peach in this Valentine’s Day outfit that I really couldn’t do otherwise, could I?
I used to think that I didn’t like pink, because I don’t own very much of it, (I keep saying that every year when Valentine’s Day rolls around. . ) I have realized over time, though, that it’s not that I don’t like pink, but that I am not drawn to cool toned pinks; I love warm peachy pinks, corals, and tawny dead shades of pink.
My mom and sister found this adorable fabric, of which there was just enough to make a gathered skirt, in the thrift store last summer. I’m not one for novelty prints, so this is about as novelty as I get, but how could I resist when it has little dancing people and bunches of flowers on it- and also what better thing could there be to wear on Valentine’s Day? In keeping with the Valentine’s theme, I also decided to wear this pendant with handwriting on it- something about it feels romantic, and my cameo earrings, which have always been a romantic kind of jewellery as well. My Brave Leather belt finished off the look- and also kept the peasant style top and gathered skit from looking frumpy. I tried the look with a narrow belt, but this one looked better: never underestimate the power of a wide belt! 🙂
I’m getting a bit tired of the cold and snow, to be honest, and I have been forced to spend most of my days indoors lately. Yesterday it finally warmed up enough to run errands without my face freezing off, which was so nice. The cold weather is getting to be a bit of a drag, but on the other hand, if I’m inside I can wear whatever I feel like, without having to worry about layers and toques and scarves. . . So, when planning what to wear for Valentine’s day- I decided to ignore the fact that it is still Winter, and as a result this outfit is quite Springlike. I am not going to go out in these sandals though! (I repeat: these sandals will not be worn in the snow!)
Today the forecast is not bad, but even if it is cold, I don’t have to go out in it and will just sit at my work desk dressed up in this un-seasonably appropriate outfit, enjoying the Valentine’s spirit (aka- eating a chocolate tart) and staying toasty warm beside my plug in heater should the temperatures dip again 🙂
I hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day no matter how you spend it!
Do you like to wear a themed Valentine’s Day outfit? Do you like the colour pink? And if so are you drawn to cool or warm pinks?

Happy Valentine’s Day! Peachy perfect outfit, very Spring-like indeed. I love pinks, especially hot pink. Always makes me feel tropical. Xx

Hot pink does seem to be tropical- maybe that’s why it’s called “hot” pink 😉
I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s day too!

These tones really suit your skin colour, they’re definitely more you than I would imagine bright pink to be. I was never a fan of peach until recently, but it was a very popular colour during the 30s, so I’ve learnt to love it. I can’t wait to finish my peach crochet cardigan so I can wear it with an original 1930s skirt I bought last year that has peach detailing on it. xx

I can’t wait to see your crochet cardigan and coordinating skirt- that sounds like it will be lovely! I didn’t used to be a fan of peach either, but it’s started making an appearance in my wardrobe over the past year or so.

Happy Valentine’s Day! I too, am wearing a themed outfit–a rose print dress I made last week to wear today and a sterling heart necklace that I found at a yardsale last year. I hope to post some photos of my new dress before the end of the week. I think your skirt turned out great, and peach-pink is a good color on you.

I look forward to seeing your new dress- it sounds lovely! It’s fun to dress up for different holidays, isn’t it? 🙂
