Tropical Valentines Print

Hey lovelies!

Hubby & I don’t really go all out for Valentine’s Day, and we just kind of let it happen. We may do small token gestures on the day depending on our hectic parental schedules. To those of you who celebrate, may it be a special day filled with lots of love!

While out shooting this lookpost, I thought it would be fitting to make this my Valentine post. Amina and I took a drive to Ardene Gardens (more commonly known as Claremont Gardens) which is where my wedding photos were taken over 19 years ago!! Sheesh, has it really been that long ago? 

I have really taken to tropical prints this season, and beautiful colours as they make me feel happy and summery. This skirt is made of lightweight chiffon, which gives the floating effect, perfectly fitting for a scorcher as the day turned out to be.

I can’t let Valentines Day pass me by without expressing some form of cheesy sentiment for my Valentine. 

‘My dear Valentine, 
It seems like yesterday that you glanced into my eyes, 
Like yesterday that you swept me off my feet. 
Your gentle manner and constant romance, 
Your sense of humour and grace,
Is the reason we’ve weathered many seasons together. 
Happy valentines day, my love.”

And we will probably pass the baton of celebrating V-day over to the teens in the household (heaven help us!)

There was no way I could pose in this tree with heels!
Who doesn’t have wedding photos taken by the infamous tree?

And lets don those heels now!
