It all comes down to one simple question: Uber? And if the answer is yes, then date night becomes much more…girly. Flirty dresses, sky-high heels, the works. It starts to look a whole lot like girl’s night (which always leans Uber-positive), but with Mike at my side.
Always a good thing.
But most of the time, our date nights involve a ton of walking – either we can’t decide where we feel like going and just end up wandering around, or Mike is stubbornly trying to use the app that calls actual taxicabs and I don’t feel like dealing with it (WHY MIKE WHY?)…..so yeah. I wear a ton of jeans and tees on date night. Besides, it’s the summer…..and a clear summer night is a thing of wonder. I like wearing something where I can kick off my shoes and be right at home at the park (or the beach) looking at stars.
Option 1 – Stretchy bracelets: Match ‘Em
This trick works on bare arms as well, but I especially like how matching bracelets can make a basic sweater look special. Also, a slightly sheer sweater and pretty bra keep it sexy enough for date night (despite the boyfriend jeans, haha).
sweater: Zady Collection Linen c/o (wearing an xs – I’m totally and completely obsessed with this thing – I’ve worn it out and to the beach…I also want it in white.
jeans: Rag and Bone Dre (now part of the #nsale!) Runs big – wearing a size 24
shoes: suuuuper old Nine West – but this pair is similar
bracelets: old – see below for more options
Option 2 – Modernize Your Statement Necklace
There’s a reason that statement necklaces won’t die: they WORK. Especially with tshirts. Modernize your crystal flowered bib necklace by swapping it out for something woven, mixed media, or in one of the newest shape: long lariat style necklaces that wrap (or not), or a choker.
tee: Zady Collection Linen tee c/o – wearing an XS
jeans: old AG jeans (but I like AG’s soft black distressed pair in the #Nsale better)
wedges: Joie Cecelia Wedge Sandal (pretty walkable – I don’t have to Uber in these….but after a mile or so I want one)
bag: Rebecca Minkoff Fringe Julian (part of the #nsale!!)
necklace: a gift from my Denver besties…see below for more options
sunglasses: Garrett Leight
Shop A Few Of My Jewelry Favs
ps. Question: where do you guys shop for really special, unique jewelry? I was heartbroken when Fragments.com closed it’s doors, and I’ve been hearing good things about Townhome in Philly….does anyone have recommendations? Either online or local? (And please don’t say “Etsy”, haha, unless you can recommend a specific seller. Trying to scroll through 345,233 statement necklaces was driving me mad.)
