Shadow Play // Date Night Tops.

top // earrings // jeans // heels // bag

I get asked a lot for date outfit ideas and my own look is usually pretty simple – a cute top like this one, jeans, and heels. You want to be comfortable but still feel cute and I’m definitely most comfortable in jeans. I’m a big fan of the wrap blouse for a date (or just going out with your girlfriends, doesn’t have to be a date night!). It shows a little skin but it’s still comfortable and something I feel like me in. I wore this outfit for a day of meetings (not a date) but for a date I would probably swap out the earrings for something more classic and pair the top with something a little more fitted like skinny black or dark wash jeans.

The Best Date Night Blouses (Under $100)

As I mentioned above I personally feel most comfortable in a cute top paired with skinny jeans and heels for a date. You can’t go wrong with a good wrap blouse. I realize Theory isn’t within everyone’s budget so I’ve tracked down some really cute alternatives, all under $100.

You know I love a tropical motif – these BaubleBar Earrings are just everything. So fun, so fun. This macaw pair is pretty epic as well.

    You have the best handbags. They are so classic yet unique. Just like this look – It’s so much more interesting than just jeans and a tee shirt. You look beautiful! xAllie
