Behold, my first photo shot with my new SLR camera! The lighting was pretty gloomy, but the Instagram husband and I made do.

Here are my tips for your Valentine’s Day outfit:

  • Show a little skin, whether it’s your décolletage or some leg – whatever makes you feel sexy! Perhaps you can unbutton your blouse a little more than usual, or wear a dress if you’re typically wearing pants. This is a special occasion, after all.
  • That being said, do keep it classy. You don’t want to look like you’re hitting up the clubs (unless, of course, you are, in which case go all out!); the key is to look demure and sweet, yet totally capable of some bad behavior ;-)
  • Don’t forget the nature of this holiday: romance. If possible, incorporate traditionally sexy or sumptuous fabrics that pay homage to this theme, like velvet and sheer lace.
  • Above all, make sure that you’re comfortable. You don’t want to keep tugging on a short skirt throughout dinner; you want to relax and enjoy yourself! So keep it as low-fuss as possible.

And that’s it! Whether you’re single or taken, I hope you all have a blast celebrating love this year! xox
