A Day Trip

Heading out for an adventure? A romantic candlelight meal for two isn’t for everyone, so if you’re spending the day in a slightly more relaxed environment, kick off the heels in favour of your best cool and comfy get up. If you’re likely to be on the move or partaking in any sort of activity, flat shoes are the best choice and we absolutely love these flower embellished trainers by Michael Kors for giving a feminine edge to a casual look. Remember, it’s still pretty chilly out, so don’t forget to layer up. May we recommend this biker style leather jacket by DVF?

Seeing as you’re going to be in the comfort of yours or your partner’s home, there may not be the need for lavish attire, however this doesn’t mean that you can’t still make an effort.

Feminine and demure, this lacy design by Rebecca Taylor is just the answer to injecting a romantic vibe into your ensemble, while these high-waisted jeans by J Brand creating a flattering silhouette that accents your curves.
