Spring is almost here, Mamas! Time to send the little ones out to play in the sunshine after a long winter cooped-up indoors. Time for us to give Netflix a break and store the take-out menus in the drawer. Translation: it’s date night season! I have a fool-proof outfit formula for a night out with your guy. In the Spring, I love dressing up a pair of jeans with a pretty, frilly top and high heel sandals for a stylish evening.
Spring weather can be tricky. It’s warmer during the day, but nights can still get pretty chilly. To combat the uncertainty of the season, I usually opt for jeans for date nights. First, I LOVE jeans! They are sexy, comfortable, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I’m partial to premium denim. Yes, it is expensive, but a good pair of jeans will last for years. Premium denim is often softer than less expensive denim (unless you go for 100% cotton, which is just too stiff for my taste). The best thing about premium jeans is the bounce-back quality. Premium jeans do not lose their shape, even with multiple wears. That point alone makes them worth the cost to me. My favorite brands are listed in the shopping list below.WOW
I love to dress up my jeans with a pretty top. It can be lacy, silky, see-through, whatever. I tend toward henley-style tops with beautiful patterns, as seen in these pics. The other great part about these tops? Any bra will work! I always choose comfort, so not having to wear a strapless bra makes for a happy Hannah! Skinny jeans look great with loose, flowy tops. They add some structure to your appearance. If you want to shake things up a bit, try a distressed pair of boyfriend jeans with a silk blouse. I’m loving the looks of this pair.
Last, I always choose a pair of high-heeled sandals to finish my date night look. I am petite, so I need all the height help I can get! Like I said before, I want to be comfortable, so I choose shoes that add some height, but that are also easy to walk in. Nine times out of ten, I will opt for flats or low heels. However, I like to add a little sexiness to my date night look, so heels it is.
