I’m in a bit of a quandary.
It’s got to do with frigid temps and date night. The challenge I’m finding: How to look cute and not freeze. It’s tough! And I’m pretty sure I’m not alone here. Even my most fashionable friends have confessed to throwing in the towel and rocking a fleece top over their normally fab outfits. (No judgement!)
So with that in mind, I’ve decided to dedicate my daily online “window” shopping to finding cute and cozy date night solutions. And since the next date night for many of us will likely be Valentine’s Day, I decided to throw a little extra love into my choices.
1) Merino Silk-Panel Sweater $118
2) Cutout Floral Sweatshirt $75
3) Crepe Notch Front Jacket $110
4) Chevron Jacquard Pullover $79
5) Super Skinny Ankle Jean $150
6) Amour Tee $39.50
7) Crewneck Cashmere Sweater $298
Some great options in the bunch, but they really need the right accessories to take it from casual to glam. The right shoes and jewels can do just that. To easily elevate the look, I’d go for a pump with a manageable heel and fun detail. Here’s a couple of pairs I was seriously crushing on. . .
Rebecca Minkoff Kalin Pump $250
I meannnnnn, RM can do no wrong! The subtle tiger print on the top of these is super fun, and the fact that these beauties have less than a 3 inch heel is the cherry on top. Wear them with a skinny/slim jean cuffed a couple times and voila!
Outfit = made.
Mirror Metallic Pumps $179.99
I’ve been crushing harrrrrd on these since December, but couldn’t quite justify the $248 price tag. And now that they’re on sale, I had to share the love! What I like most about these was the classic silhouette that got turned on its ear by a mirrored metallic finish. So fresh. Style them the same as above. Or rock them with a distressed jean for a more unexpected feel.
(But what if it snows?!)
Dean Ankle Boot $169.99
50/50 Over the Knee Boot $598
Frye Wedge Boot $288
I’m not as excited about the boots. Probably because that’s what I’ve been living in for the last 4+ months. . . What I do like about these is that they’re a bit dressier than your average winter footwear, and just as cute. And because they’re so practical, you’ll definitely get your moneysworth.
Lastly, and most importantly, the accessories! They (like shoes) can change the entire vibe of an outfit.
Square Flower Necklace $48
Faceted Drop Earring $28
Rose Gold Clutch $189.99
Feather Trim Clutch $228
This was such a fun, fashion round up! I hope it gave you guys as much fashionspiration as it gave me. Looking forward to putting some fun, warmer outfit choices together for date night this weekend. Stay toasty!
