Date Night Outfit of the Day

Earrings: JewelMint
Blouse: Reiss
Bracelet: BaubleBar
Skirt: Tibi
Shoes: Miu Miu

I'm personally not a yellow person.  It doesn't agree with my coloring, and I think it makes me look a little sick and sallow, but when it starts to heat up, pastels call to me.  When that happens, I look for ways to put the colors I look good in next to face and layer the color I want to wear but I know is less appealing on me to the lower half of my body.  This outfit brings together feminine and edgy to show that they can work together.  If you have an hourglass figure, consider adding a belt to accentuate your waist.

Date Night Outfit of the Day

Dress: VPL
Earrings: JewelMint

I love that this dress has the appearance of being a bandage dress without being one.  Everyone has seen those celebrities who probably shouldn't be wearing bandage dresses and thought to yourself, "That is why I will never wear one."  But let's face it, who doesn't want to have a little number like this to pull out for a summer date night.  Going with a tighter silhouette means having a higher neckline.  Don't go with a tight or short skirt and a low cut top.  This dress has a perfect neckline for the cut.  Although it fits true to size, it is a body conscious dress, so you might want to consider going up a size to ensure your comfort and to keep from being self conscious if you feel the dress riding up over the course of the evening.  A bold smoky eye can be paired with a paler lip, and these lovely opalite earrings will keep the look edgy but not over the top.  A simple black pump keeps the outfit from looking like you're trying too hard or going for a too youthful look.

Casual Outfit of the Day

Kaftan: Vix
Jeans: AllSaints
Jacket: Mango
Shoes: Sole Society
Necklace: JewelMint
Ring: JewelMint
Watch: Michael Kors

I recently bought a snakeskin pencil skirt.  No, not actual snakeskin.  It was stepping out of my personal comfort zone.  I love animal prints for shoes and bags, but I never saw myself as the kind of person who would wear it as a pattern for my clothing.  This piece has changed my mind.  It's super versatile, and I'm wearing it as my new neutral.  Now I'm searching out pieces like this blouse to wear throughout the summer.
