It’s not often that my husband and I get to have a date night alone. This outfit is simple and one of my favorites when we do get a chance. Lace is one of my favorite materials. Something about it makes me feel girly, elegant, and classy. I sometimes get nervous reaching for an all lace dress since I feel as if it can look too overdressed and formal for a seemingly casual dinner date with my husband. Finding a lace top such as this one gives me just the right amount of lace, making me feel comfortable and ready for night out on the town. I love the different texture block, it gives the top some nice detail, making it interesting and different.
The peplum style makes it bouncy and fun, moving swiftly when walking. Pairing the off white cream lace with dark skinny jeans is the perfect match for a nighttime look. I kept it simple and went with classic black pumps (though the red soles give it a pop, which I love).
When choosing to accessorize this kind of look, I like to keep things simple, keeping it from looking too busy. A small handbag/clutch is all you need for a date night (this is your chance to not lug along all those "other" necessities!! Leave that huge bag at home).
Finding an outfit that is no fuss and makes you feel good will leave you to enjoy the night with your spouse, which is what it’s all about. Stepping out of your everyday wear and bringing in a little bit of lace will make the date feel new and exciting even if it is a casual dinner at your favorite local joint. The night is yours especially when they are far and few, so why not have fun with it? Leave me a comment! What's your favorite go to date look?
