Summer Date Night Outfit: Off the Shoulder

Summer date nights are my favorite date nights.  There’s something about having the freedom to go out any night of the week and not have to worry about the kids’ practice schedules or getting ready for the next school day.  This summer, Craig and I have been taking advantage of getting out a little more since we know what lies ahead in the fall.  Aubrey is going to be a senior and having already been down that path with Devon, we know how crazy it’s going to be.

We usually don’t go anywhere fancy as we have a handful of casual neighborhood places that are our “regulars”.  But I do like to feel a little more dressed up than I would for an evening at say, Chick-fil-a.

Creating a summer date night outfit is as easy as pairing up summer 2016’s off the shoulder trend with a pair of your favorite skinny jeans and neutral wedges.  Add a statement making necklace and voila!  Instant date night outfit.

  3. Living on Cloud Nine

    Darling outfit!! Just love those sandals and I’m obsessed with off the shoulder.

  4. djump

    Is the top sheer at all? On the Nordstrom site it looks like it is but not in your pic. Since it’s off the shoulder I couldn’t wear a cami under it so I’d like to know!

    • Alison Lumbatis

      I was worried about it too when I saw it on the web site but thank goodness, no, it’s not sheer!

  5. MissKats

    Silly question (perhaps?) but – what’s the bra situation with off-the-shoulder blouses?

    • Alison @ Get Your Pretty On

      Strapless, MissKats ;o) There are so many options now with the convertible bras. Reconfigure the straps to your heart’s content.

  6. Kavya Bollu

    One of the prettiest off the shoulder outfits I’ve seen lately! You look gorgeous babe! 🙂

  13. Shelbee on the Edge

    This is the perfect summer date night outfit. I don’t get too many date nights anymore now that we have little ones, but I usually go for a similar formula of jeans, a flirty top, and sexy shoes! You look fabulous!

    I would love for you to come join my On the Edge of the Week Link Up which goes live every Thursday at 5:00 p.m. EST.
