There are few things I will leave the house for.
Lindsey Buckingham is one of them.
Lindsey Buckingham, former lead guitar for Fleetwood Mac (please make up and get back together for a reunion tour) is coming to Colorado for the holidays, and I am dragging my husband to see him play. Since I rarely leave the house past 8pm, I wanted a special holiday going-out outfit that works with the colder temps., but is still rock n’ roll.
Little did I know that all I really needed to do was add a sexy lace bodysuit to items already in my closet for the perfect concert look.
This Sexy Lace Bodysuit Nails My Concert Outfit Formula
I have a few rules when it comes to tops, the main one is they can’t require special bras or boob tape. I have tried (and failed) to crack the code on complicated contraptions for my coconuts. It’s Bali, bra-less or bust (pun intended) for this gal.
While the Bardot Lace Bodysuit doesn’t have built-in cups, it’s designed in such a way that I feel supported and appropriately covered by the lace paneling. (A TME Insiders member with a larger cup size has reported back and said she feels perfectly supported in it with boob tape). Also, unlike a lot of bodysuits, it’s not a thong! It’s a little cheeky, but not so tight that you’ll see lines through your pants. It runs TTS (I’m wearing a large).
1. Start With A Cute Bodysuit
As I said above, I love this Lace Bodysuit because it’s not a thong bodysuit, the mesh is placed in areas I’m comfortable showing, and it holds my C cups in just fine. The right bodysuit is in the eye of the beholder. It really depends on what you need and what your comfort level is. I’ve linked to some other bodysuits below to provide options.
Fit Notes: The bodysuit runs TTS (I’m wearing a large).

2. Pair It With Dark Wash Jeans
I prefer darker wash jeans for date night, and these FRAME Le High Waist Flares are utter perfection. Stretchy, darker wash and they make your legs look miles long. It can be difficult to find this particular wash in stock, so I’ve linked to different washes/other pairs below.
Fit Notes: The jeans run big, size down (I’m wearing a 29).

3. Add A Leather Jacket
If you read my leather jacket post, you know I didn’t fancy myself a leather jacket gal until I found this AllSaints Balfern Jacket. The color is unexpected, the leather is buttery soft, and it adds a total cool factor to any outfit. Without a jacket this bodysuit would be incredibly revealing, not to mention chilly. I’m looking to enjoy a concert, not recreate the conditions of Arendelle in Frozen. The cold doesn’t bother me anyway…unless it’s under 40 degrees, and I’m in a mesh bodysuit.
Fit Notes: The AllSaints jacket runs small. I’m wearing a US 10, which is their largest size (smh). It was tight as anything when I first tried it on, but it’s definitely a jacket you can break in.

4. Top It Off With A Statement Bag
This is the kind of bag that doesn’t scream, it whispers (I feel like I stole that line from a Real Housewife, but I couldn’t tell you which one). The Rejina Pyo Nane Leather Bag is one that I scored on super sale at Saks this summer (so many S’s!) and it is a prized possession. (If you scour secondhand shops you might be able to find it or at least the same style in a different color). It’s clutch, literally, it goes with everything, and the architecture is so unique. A sparkly or velvet clutch also could have worked with this outfit, so I’ve rounded up some other bags to level up your holiday look.

5. Finish It Off With Heeled Booties
You need a good heel to rock flares, and these Vince Camuto booties do not disappoint. I’ve had them for nearly a decade and they remain my favorite booties. I know they aren’t the easiest to see, but anything I can wear with socks and is closed-toe is good by me for a winter date night look. My booties have sadly since sold out, but these are similar and I’ve rounded up more options below!

I haven’t had to dress for a colder climate date night in over a decade. I’ve also had several pregnant or postpartum holiday seasons to contend with. This is the first year in quite some time where I am not pregnant or recovering and, with the approaching holiday season, it’s the perfect time to play with fashion. Take some risks. Figure out how to “go my own way.” I can’t “stop thinking about (tomorrow)” and attending the Buckingham concert in this outfit. (I promise that’s the end of my LB puns. Maybe).
