Payday Pretty | Date Night Dressing

Payday Pretty | Date Night Dressing

 With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I’ve got cute date night looks on the brain.  Hubby and I are pretty good about scheduling regular date nights.  But they are usually to casual neighborhood eateries so I don’t make much effort in the outfit department.

But I do try a little harder for special occasions and our annual Valentine’s dinner out is one of them.  It’s hard to justify buying a whole new outfit for just one night out. So I try to work with basics that I already own to create a special look.

This week, I decided to challenge myself to create some looks built on items that you and I probably already have in our closets.

I Feel Pretty | Perfect

I Feel Pretty | Perfect

Do you have that perfect go-to outfit that you wear over and over?

I do and today I’m going to show you mine.

I’m not ever sure what’s so perfect about it.  It’s nothing special.   But it incorporates all of my favorite things – layers, a comfy knit, a scarf, skinny jeans and boots.

Let’s start with the shirt.  I bought it for a print shoot last year and honestly thought I would never wear it again.  I just wasn’t that crazy about the color.  Even though it looks burgundy in these photos, it’s more of a deep purple and I don’t wear dark colors very often.

I started pairing it up in different ways – half tucked with boyfriend jeans, loose over leggings and layered with skinny jeans.  It quickly became a wardrobe staple.

One chilly day, I threw a knit open front vest and scarf on with it and a new favorite outfit was born.
