For romance day this year Gordon and I booked ourselves into Aberdeen's Malmaison for the "Malentines" package. I realise I'm a bit behind here but better late than never! When I saw this blue In love with fashion jumpsuit on Pearls and Poodles it was love at first sight. I ordered it as soon as pay day came around and a night of food and cocktails with my other half was the perfect excuse to wear it.
Cobalt is fast becoming my favourite colour and slowly, but surely taking over my wardrobe. It's such an easy colour to wear and accessorize. I ended up teaming the jumpsuit with sparkly heels, a gold (Lulu Guinness imitation) clutch and those amazing YSL earrings that I picked up on ebay after spying them over on VIPxo! It's unusual for me to wear anything strapless but the top is fairly structured and supportive so I didn't feel in danger of any wardrobe malfunctions! The cobalt version is actually on sale for £25 at Topshop right now!
Our package included chocolate dipped strawberries on arrival, the nights stay, a 4 course dinner, a cocktail each and our breakfast the morning after. Not bad for £250. The meal was delicious - I had a haddock soup, followed by chicken liver parfait, a gorgeous steak for main course and then an amazing melt in the middle chocolate pudding with mint choc chip ice-cream. We ventured into town for a couple of drinks but ended our night back in the stylish hotel bar with a couple of cocktails. The perfect Valentines weekend if you ask me.
Did you do/wear anything special for Valentines this year?
