Dress: Miss Unkon ... Crown: P&P (own Etsy store, shop HERE) ... Shoes: Zu Shoes 

 February 14th ... Valentines Day. For those who have a significant other and can also manage to take a day off important commitments ... I envy you. Personally, although the former exists, I know that the latter is unlikely since I'll be sitting in a classroom learning about the notions of Romanticism (oh the irony).

However, this post is dedicated to what I WOULD be wearing on the 14th. I'm sticking to a fail proof formula; traditional pink or red, flowy frock and a handmade floral garland (shop HERE). Movement is something that I admire in a dress and this one by Miss Unkon is what I call the perfect 'happy dress'. Allow me to explain. 

You know those off days where all you want to do is sink into a hole and sleep (or weep)? What you should do is pop on your favourite frock, pump up some deep house lounge jazz rap dupstep (whatever floats your boat) and just dance! Flick that hair, fling your arms and in the words of my friend Carly ... Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy!

Everyone knows how an instant mood booster feels like and that can translate into a piece of clothing. Therefore a 'happy dress' is a particular garment infiltrated by feelings of fearlessness and freedom and associated with everything positive. 

So on the 14th, no worries if you're celebrating independence. Just don't be a sulky pigeon. Grab your girlfriends, do the aforementioned steps and have a gorgeous 'Galentines Day'.
