Happy Monday! Today, I am teaming up with Kate from Taffeta + Tulips to showcase our perfect date night outfits! While I am newly married, Kate is an experienced wife and even has kids (I don’t know how she does it!). We wanted to bring you our perfect date night looks that incorporated our favorite item: a simple white blazer.
I first met Kate when I started blogging, like literally the first week I started blogging. Kate was one of my first supporters and #bloggerfriends, and thanks to her, I had the courage to continue on my blogging journey. Kate’s style is effortlessly chic and classic. Not only is her style timeless, but her writing is thoughtful and beautiful and I love reading her blog every day. My date night look incorporates many of my favorite things: fun shoes, a dressed up graphic tee, and a sassy hair style. Dressing up for a date night is always exciting because it means I get to spend uninterrupted time with my husband and usually eat a delicious meal. A white blazer is the perfect layering piece for any season, and I especially love it over my new graphic ‘Paris’ tee. This fun and flirty skirt also adds a bit of fun to my look with the drop waist.
Today, I am so excited to team up with the perpetually chic Maggie of Polished Closets! Not only is Maggie one of the sweetest people I know, she also has a keen eye for detail and an impeccable sense of style. (I mean, have you seen her handbag collection?) We chose to focus on a summer staple, the timeless and versatile white blazer. The possibilities are endless with this clean and crisp classic piece. Although a white blazer is the perfect look for day, we decided to portray two different “date night” ensembles. I love Maggie’s young, fresh approach with her playful graphic tee, striped clutch and killer Valentinos! As a mom of four, I opted for a low key style with a loose striped tank, skinny jeans and simple heels. I tend to gravitate toward looks that can effortlessly transition from day to night by tweaking a few accessories here and there.
Our kitty Gracie came out to see what we were doing, so I had to take a picture with her! Truth: I’m a crazy cat lady.
