L is For the Way You Look at Me

Since Valentine’s Day is on Sunday, I thought I’d theme this post around things that remind me of this occassion – the colours red & pink, flowers, jewellery and of course, fashion! The collage below also includes things that I’ve been loving for a while, so it’s all very intertwined really.

Country Road has their new autumn range out and I’m happy to see that it includes lots of raspberry-coloured items. I’m about to purchase one of their classic merino cardies (in raspberry of course) later this week! OPI also has a new collection of shades out inspired by Hong Kong (this reddy is ‘Red My Fortune Cookie’ – cute)! They’re all very bright and oriental, go check them out! These Kathryn Wilson heels are not only stunning, but practical too. I hear some of you shaking your heads in disagreement, but hear me out – the pink strap around the ankle helps to support the foot while it’s in the heel, making these shoes gorgeous AND comfy. You’re not shaking your heads now are you. Nude Footwear brings out amazing heels time and time again, so I couldn’t not include a pair in this post. And even though it’s still nice and warm outside, these Ruby & Madame Hawke coats kind of make me wish it was a bit cooler so I could have an excuse to wear them... kind of.

The rest of the items in this collage are amazing too, but so I don’t bore you with too many words, I’ll finish off this post by discussing my favourite item in it – the Karen Walker oval pink coral & diamond cocktail ring. I love this ring, it’s so loud and vibrant and I’m really crushing on gold jewellery at the moment. This would be a GREAT Valentine’s Day gift and would look oh so nice on my fingers...hint hint, nudge nudge M. Maybe you ladies should direct your men to this post too, I’m sure you’d love something from below as a gift!

Have a great Valentine’s Day everyone – whether you’re spending it with your lover, your friends or your family. I’m lucky enough to be having two Valentine’s Day dinners this year, one on Saturday with my closest girlfriends and one on Sunday with my M. Can’t wait!
