When you live where winters are cold, the only good thing about February is Valentine’s Day. I’ve never really done much for Valentine’s day nor have I expected anything, but my boyfriend and I have used it as an excuse to go on a little staycation a few times here in the city, and I’ve also been guilty of using it to justify the purchase of some pretty intimates. Even if we don’t have plans, wearing a something spicy under my clothes is like a little Valentine to myself.
So far this year, we’ve not made plans but I’m already throwing together a few backup outfit ideas.. you know.. just in case. I recently had the pleasure of shooting with a local designer who makes leather harnesses for her brand, DreamBelts. I already knew I loved harnesses and leather, her accessories are kind of perfect to add to a Valentine’s outfit!
While harnesses have that very obvious element of kink, they can so easily be incorporated into fashion no matter your personal style, and do NOT have to be left to only bedroom fashion. Personally, wearing leather and harnesses make me feel powerful and sexy, and I just can’t get enough, so I figured I’d share how I styled a few pieces for our most recent shoot.
