With less than 24hrs to go until Valentines Day, its easy to get distracted by the flowers and cards and forget about the annual wardrobe stress.  If you're anything like us, your bedroom floor will look like a scene from Twister in the build up to leaving the house.

Date Night Issues...[/caption] Lets face it, there is enough to think about before a big date (your date iteself, what to talk about, where to go); so let us help with some outfit ideas. Whether you're planning a fun day out, a posh dinner date or just a chill out on the sofa...we have ideas for the lot! The Daytime Date This is a hard outfit to get right - it requires the perfect balance of understated romance, comfort and charm (whilst always trying to outwit the UK weather).  Try pairing a structured skirt (both midi and mini would work) with a relaxed tee or jumper.  We are loving pastel leather jackets for SS15 particularly in this cornflower blue.  Finish with a pair of pumps and a gorgeous clutch bag.  The Amber clutch is perfect for a day time date, adding a touch of glamour to the outfit.

Go for a relaxed style with a hint of glamour with a pair of skinny jeans and a sequinned top.  Add a pop of colour with a statement clutch such as the Jemima Suede bag or through a pair of bold shoes.  We have gone for a stylish pair of flats but add heels for an instant way to smarten your look.

Well, maybe not every weekend but the sofa date definately has a lot of positives.
