We’re half way through the week and I’m already day dreaming about date night with my love! Last Sunday we had a night on the town as two of our sweet friends were getting engaged. Our friend had it all planned out, after a romantic dinner for these two love birds, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. Little did she know, all of their close friends and family were there to capture the moment and celebrate!
The hubs and I took this opportunity to enjoy some time together on the Ave before joining the rest of the group to pop the bubbly. It’s always nice to be reminded to slow down and enjoy date night with your significant other, especially when you’re caught up in the day-to-day, like you know, tackling major house projects!

3 Tips for Achieving the Perfect Date Night Outfit
As someone who craves comfort and ease in my every day outfits, there are many things I want for my date night look. It has to be cute, comfortable, with a hint of sexy (it is date night after all!), but high on my must-have list is easy and versatile. It needs to be able to easily transition from grabbing drinks outside at the bar to dinner inside. Here are my 3 tips for achieving the perfect date night outfit.
I believe every outfit should have a statement piece. Normally I like my accessories to be the statement, however this lace shift dress from Nordstrom didn’t need one. The flirty cut of this dress and the lace detail was statement enough! Oh and the back is an adorable thin racer back (that I totally forgot to photograph – so you’ll have to click the link above to see how cute this dress really is!)
Layers are an absolutely must-have, especially in Florida, where the temps are 90+ degrees outside and 74 inside! Besides being extremely practical, I believe an outfit looks more complete with layers. Blazers are my favorite way to dress up any outfit. And I absolutely adore this LC Lauren Conrad blazer from Kohls. It is comfortable and chic, it’s really a win-win. Another great way to add in layers are with scarfs and vests, perfect for transitioning into fall weather!
And add leggings and booties to this dress and you’ve got the perfect fall date night outfit!
Your shoe choice is just as much a statement as your accessories. Since we were heading out to the Ave where we normally walk a lot, I wanted comfort (surprise, surprise!), but I didn’t want to sacrifice style and these Jessica Simpson flats didn’t disappoint. I love how these on-trend lace up looking flats give me the look without the fuss. Instead of tying like the very trendy lace up flats, these actually have a zipper in the back. All the trend without the hassle, yes, please! If you’re looking to dress it up, pair this dress with wedges or block heels and enjoy a night out on the town!
