Dating

 Sweater: H&M, Skirt: H&M (similar), Heels: Loft (similar), Accessories: F21 necklace, Michael Kors watch, Jimmy Choo for H&M bracelet, F21 ring, Karen Walker sunglasses

I've never been the one who truly "dressed for the occasion" but, if there is one thing I do dress for is...a date night. I can't help myself but gravitate towards an outfit that's more flirty and feminine. This beaded skirt from H&M is the perfect choice in getting that flirty and feminine appeal. The soft blush pink, the silver bead work and the chiffon material really become the star of the outfit. I kept everything else relatively subdued in comparison. The leopard heels act more as a neutral because of its color and the light grey knit sweater accents the silver and the blush pink of the skirt. The look is perfect for cocktails and dinner.

What's the best part? My date (AKA the husband) had nothing but compliments. But, I suppose if you're married to your date...the opinion may already be biased. 


How do you dress for your dates?

  4. What a cute post! I love dressing for date night too. I've been with my boyfriend for 4 years now so I always see it as an opportunity to style a new outfit and not care what anyone thinks :) This is a beautiful look, I love the pairing of the sequined skirt with a more casual top.

  10. I love all the different textures and patterns going on in this outfit. Aside from weddings, I don't think I dress for the occasion either. I always just wear whatever I feel that day or in the moment. Sometimes I'm in heels and Mike is in workout clothes lol.

  18. Haha, my boyfriend is always so sweet about comments and I constantly tell him he's biased. But you know, they really mean it, and I think your husband wasn't entirely biased. You look amazing! I adore the sequined skirt :D
