Outfit of the Day: Casual Dinner Date

I’m playing around with different outfit ideas that represent a mix of prices and styles. Today’s pick is a casual date-night dining outfit. Spring is the perfect time to get a cocktail and a bite to eat under the stars but you need just the right mix of dressy and casual to pull it off. Here’s my suggestion for the right combination of style and cost to make sure all eyes are on you while you keep an eye on your bank balance.

I’m loving this Fifteen Twenty Ruffle Blouse ($189). The color can flatter various skin tones, the ruffles and fabric make it dressy without seeming overdone, and it’s a great piece that can go from day to night.

Yes, you can wear black skinny jeans and these Cheap Monday Skinny Jeans ($70) are adorable and cost effective. Pair them with black heels to keep the line of the leg long and to keep the slimming effect going.

Accessories are always important. I love this Vita Bambino bracelet ($135) alone or in multiples stacked. A clean white clutch is always nice for summer and this G by Guess Lily Slim Clutch ($24.50) will do the trick. You’re ready for date night dining al fresco!
