Lazy Sunday – Date Night

4 Oct

Normally on Sunday evenings we host a study at our house focusing on Rob Bell’s Nooma videos. They’re pretty rad … check ’em out if you haven’t …

Well, tonight group was cancelled so Kai and I had a date night instead. Much needed! It seems like we only see each other when we are working this time of year.

Since these evenings are few and far between, I wanted to get a little more gussied up than I was this morning, while still maintaining some basic elements from my church outfit.

Here’s what I came up with:

I switched out my cardigan for a gray boyfriend tee and black pull over sweatshirt. The accessories are what punched it up a bit. I added my drop necklace and the same heels I wore a couple nights ago. I moved the flower from my belt to my hair. I got a comment on the previous post saying the flower was overpowering … so some of you might really hate it in my hair. Our waitress at dinner loved it, though. 🙂

Here’s a close up of my shoes … the heel is my favorite part. 

This is my favorite “going out” purse. I saw this at Banana Republic when it was still full price. Once I saw that it was on sale, I snatched it up before it was gone. I love the color, I love the size, and I love that I can wear it two ways …

Way #1

Way #2 …

Outfit Breakdown.
Jeans, Belt, and Flower: Same as before
T-shirt: The Gap (Originally $19.50)
Sweatshirt: Banana Republic
Necklace: Target ($19.99)
Purse: Banana Republic (Originally $75)
Shoes: Christian Siriano through Payless ($35)

I loved the mix of boyfriend style with flashy, girly accessories. Putting unexpected things together can create some really adorable outfits. Give it a try!

    I have that sweatshirt! Same color and everything. But I always wear it with the belt and Sean calls it a “robe.” I’ll be trying it sans-belt soon.

      I never wear it with a belt … just because it doesn’t hit at my natural waist and it really bothers me. You could try adding a different belt to it, too! Might make it less robe-y. 🙂
