Date night outfit

DSC03952  Date nights are usually pretty casual for my husband and me, but since the nights have become warmer, I have been reaching for my heels.

We ventured out for some Greek food the other night, and topped it off with delicious orange italian ice for dessert. I am so grateful for warm, summer evenings, they are quite possibly one of my favorite things. Continue reading

Summer Date Night Ready

Coral x Samosa POP In summers, my date night outfits tend to be light and colorful. It is the perfect time to embrace your feminine side and there’s nothing more ladylike than the floral print.  The key to styling this print is to mix in either some casual (such as these white skinny jeans) or edgy accents (such as a chain design handbag) – it helps balance out the sweetness of this beautiful print and keeps the overall look feeling modern. This oh-so-summer-time blouse is from a trendy local boutique – Envy Evanston. I love their affordable approach to fashion and that they have so many on-trend styles. This versatile top combines three of the most popular summer trends; pastel, floral print and off-shoulder. It is an ideal breezy piece that can be dressed up or down. I can see myself wearing this beautiful summer must-have all season long. Continue reading
