Forever 21 Maxi Dress (old, similar here) , & Steve Madden Wedges (old, similar here)
Patrick and I went on a date night last week to a new restaurant that we have been wanting to try, Testa, in downtown Los Angeles. We got to go during an event called DineLA where many local Los Angeles restaurants offer a one time set menu to try three course dinner. It was such a great experience and fun date night for both of us!
The weather is starting to warm up at nights in Los Angeles, so we enjoyed our lovely dinner on the patio. This strappy maxi dress was perfect. I always feel so elegant in maxi dresses for some reason, and I love how this one is so lightweight for the summer. It also has a deep v back for a little extra flirty appeal. I paired it with these bandi Steve Madden wedges (which are uber comfortable, similar to the platform sandal version last seen here)!
I saw this hairstyle from Amber Fillerup with Barefoot Blonde and had to try it out myself. I love the fact that it is probably one of the simplest hairstyle I have done yet it look so elegant! Here are the steps I used a tools to achieve this look for your next date night or girls night out!
I love summer because it means tons of sunshine, outdoor adventures, and ideal weather! I also love summer fashion because it is less layers and more fun and flirty pieces like dresses and skirts. When I am not wearing a summer dress last seen here or here, white is a go to color for summer because it is simple and classic. Here are some of my favorite white tops for summer.
It feels so good to find a simple white shirt and thisMadewell off the shoulder top does not disappoint. It is 100% cotton so is super lightweight and great for hot days. Another thing I absolutely love is there is a draw string at the top around the shoulders so you can tighten or loosen for the perfect fit. I have had some off the shoulder tops that literally squeeze my upper body and arms flat down making it hard to even move lol. Madewell
also offers this off the shouldertop as well in multiple colors yet similar style.
I recently had my first pair of Joe's Jeans a few years ago and they are definitely some of my favorite. They are really good quality and fit well. I recently got these
distressed Joes Jeans from Nordstrom Rack to try out the raw hem. It just gives a little extra to broaden your jean collection. And if you haven't already raved about these
Steve Madden platform slides, last seen here, well here I go again. Some of the most comfortable shoes you can own this summer. Perfect for walking around and outdoor adventures since the weather is nice.
Sometimes in the summer, I get busier and have a lot more on my agenda. Whether its going somewhere with friends, exploring my city by foot, or date night I am always on the go. Having a simple outfit that is easy for any occasion and can easily transition as the day goes on is crucial.
Dresses are the simplest outfit option because duh its only one piece and done! I like a simple cami dress because it is perfect for the summer heat and can be easily transitioned from a casual day around the city to happy hour drinks with the girls.
