What I Wore: Date Night

As some of you know,  the husband and I don't have kids yet. This means we go on as many dates as possible because we hear that once you have little ones, that free time seems to disappear. Over the weekend we had one of my favorite dates ever. What did we do, you ask? We went SHOPPING and then shared a delightful meal. :) Hee hee, I don't know about you, but I relish any chance to shop. It's not just about buying things to add to my wardrobe, I just really love helping people find *just* the right item. In his case, it was new suits. The suits had to be tailored, but I may see if I can get him to show them off once they're back. Regardless, I really wanted to look stylish but still be comfy. The wind kinda killed my hair hair, so please excuse the craziness. 20131026_115113 20131026_115043 20131026_115151

Top: Zara (similar, similar or similar) Pants: J. Crew (similar and less expensive!) Boots: Sam & Libby Kaye (similar or similar)

I rant and rage against leggings being worn as pants (follow me on twitter or instagram and you shall see...), but I understand wanting a sleek lower half. My solution is the amazing skinnies from J. Crew. They have an awesome about of stretch, and they actually STAY UP. That in itself makes them a winner in my book. I paired them with a flowy top and my favorite ankle boots and was ready to go!

My style tip: flowing shirts and t-shirts are HUGE right now in the style world, so do what I did and balance the billowing top with a tailored pant. Avoid trousers, boot cut jeans, and wide leg pants. Too much material will just make you look bigger and no one wants that.

What's your go-to style for date night? Let me know in the comments below!



**Someone asked if I tucked in the front of my shirt and not the back: Nope! It's actually designed that way, which I love. I know some ladies really appreciate the modesty if they're wearing skinny pants, and I loved the overall look.
