Happy Thursday! With the weekend approaching, I thought it would be fun to share a spring date night look! I think Paul and I are going to grab sushi tomorrow night while my mom watches Maxi and this is what I plan on wearing. I also found dupes for nearly everything I’m wearing so you can recreate this look for less if you want!
I love dresses, skirts and any feminine details, but I think it is a safe bet to say that most of us wear jeans and some form of a heel on a date night. If you wear business dress for work, you probably just want to feel
relaxed comfortable on the weekends. Jeans? Most always comfortable. Heels? 9 times out of 10, no. However, I find that when I get one with a chunky-heel I can walk all night long with no problems. We typically head downtown for date nights and I refuse to navigate pavement in a skinny heel. I did that one night in New Orleans years ago going to dinner with a girlfriend and that was an experience. I had a pair of Jessica Simpson pumps I was SO excited to wear and they did not pair well with the New Orleans’ streets. I. Cringe. Thinking. About. It. I tripped a million times, a stranger had to help me and I have a scar on my leg to prove it. Let’s just say I left those in the hotel room and never missed them. So anyways, I try to stay married to a chunky heel to avoid those embarrassing scenarios. These sandals have the perfect heel and give just enough height you feel perfect for date night. I wore these in black at the end of my pregnancy with no issues, so I knew I wanted to grab them in a neutral hue for spring. Here is a similar pair that is a bit less expensive and comes in suede!
I picked up this top [love this too and half the price!] with my mom a few months ago while I was still pregnant. I caved and purchased it because of the ruffle detailing and told myself I’d wear it on my first date post baby. I’m a huge fan of blue and white because it’s a classic and will always be in style, but sometimes it can veer a bit on the preppy side. If you aren’t as preppy or classic in your personal style, I find that adding a pop of turquoise blends extremely well. I’ve worn this necklace into the ground, but if you are looking for a more affordable version here is one. Then I had to go one extra step and add a cute, kitten clutch. 😉
Also, these jeans…y’all! I’m obsessed. I officially only want to buy cropped denim from here on out. If you’re more petite [I’m 5’3″!] it’s nice because you can really show off your shoes, especially if they wrap around the ankle like these.
Do you have any fun date plans for this weekend?!
