The valentine's shoot we did the other week was fun but here's what I actually wore on Valentine's Day. This is my dinosaur loving gothic child look. Perfect for a romantic day, I'm sure you'll agree.  My other half and I ventured across the river Tay and back to Kitschnbake in Newport. After making our first trip there for my birthday we couldn't wait to go back to enjoy some more brilliant baking. This time we had heart shaped jam tarts. How very appropriate for the day. After that we had a little wonder around Newport, enjoyed the sunshine and we finished off our trip with a new discovery.

Newport, The Cheecky Chair Company
Intrigued by the window display (and name) we checked out The Cheeky Chair Company. This shop is full of lovely homeware and gifts. It also stocks lots of beautiful paints and accessories which allow you to upcycle your own furniture and offers workshops on how to do it right. If you're not a fan of DIY the owner, Sally Sneddon, can come and do it for you. We picked up some rather fun book ends and I fell for a full on 1950's dress coat but sadly left it behind. Will definitely be back for everything I need to spruce up my home.

For all this fun and frivolity I wore my Vintage Style Me dinosaur dress...again. It's featured on here a few times but it is just so much fun! Since I removed the sleeves I have really enjoyed layering it with shirts. This time around it was this black H&M number with jewelled collar. I then added some stompy black boots, black tights and topped it all off with some black Crown and Glory. I seriously love this headband. It is so well made and always adds that perfect finishing touch. I really must invest in some more summery ones so I'm all prepared.

Next to all that black I felt a tad peely wally so added a very appropriate Bonnie Bling necklace. This was a cheeky wee Christmas gift from Kimberley. It's ok, I do enjoy the pale and interesting vibe.

So it turns out I may be a tad more romantic than previously thought. Saying that, we did end our day by watching May. Nothing says you love someone quite like chopping them up for parts, right?!

Thanks to Ross for the photos and a for a lovely day.
