Ahhh, date night – one of my favorite nights of the entire week. But can you blame me? First of all, you get your significant other’s undivided attention and depending on what you do, you’re most likely going to be eating delicious food, having a few drinks, and (hopefully) having a blast. What’s not to love?
When Chris and I are planning date night I always try to aim for a week night (even though I hate doing shit after work) – it’s a great way to break up the week and the weekends are typically filled with errands, family commitments, and nights out with friends. Plus as someone who has a casual dress code at work, it’s always fun to get dressed up!
As a denim girl through and through, I’m always looking for new ways to style it and a wrap top is the perfect way! Over the last few seasons, wrap tops have been making waves and I am allllll about it. They’re easy, you can wear them to work, and practically all clothing stores carry them. This one (which comes in a bunch of different colors/patterns) is super easy and is fastened in a few different places so even if the tie comes undone, you won’t be walking around with your boobs out which is always a plus.
I have a few pairs of shoes that are my go-to for date night, with this pair of mules being one of them. They’re also what I consider the best TJMaxx find of all time and you guys are going to kill me but, I’ve looked EVERYWHERE and they’re no longer available. I have linked a very similar pair by the same designer below, but will keep you posted if I find my exact pair in stock somewhere!
Not a jeans person? Here are some other date night outfit ideas:
- Dress & Sneakers – I always reserve dresses and heels for special events so I always opt for sneaks if I do wear a dress (which is very, very rare). It’s cute, casual and perfect for a day date!
- T-Shirt & Culottes – Is anyone else loving the wide-leg pant trend? I’ve tried on a few pair of culottes and haven’t pulled the trigger yet, but I am loving them pair with a fitted tee and slides!
- Jean Shorts & Chunky Cardigan – This time of year is so funky. Last week it was 60 degrees, yesterday was 80 degrees. Welcome to New England. The bright side of the variations in temperatures is that you can wear all the jean shorts and chunky cardigans you want.
