Happy almost Valentine’s Day! Before Cupid’s arrival, I wanted to be sure to share a trendy, very non-traditional, style as an option for your Valentine’s date extravaganza!
I am going to be completely honest with you all. What kind of blogger would I be if I am not completely transparent? I should share my awesome highlights as well as my “not so smart” moments on fashion, right?
Don’t you just love when things happen in your life and you immediately say to yourself, “this is a future post!”? I totally had this moment while having dinner this week! I thought the title of this post was kind of fun, catchy and pretty random at the same time. All which describes me on the daily! I wanted to create this simple and impromptu post just to share some ideas on how to be casual and comfy for dinner dates whether it’s with your girl-friends or with your special someone, husband, whoever. Being cute while being comfy at the same time is MAJOR KEY for me when choosing a way to pair clothing items. Once upon a time, I wanted to wear the highest heels and the tightest skirts. I would be so uncomfortable! But as I have gotten older I only want to be comfy. Can you agree?
Earlier this week, I was able to link up over dinner with one of my gal pals. She’s a charm and so was dinner at a local restaurant located in Five Points called Publico. Great location, great interior set up, and awesome food. It’s not an “upscale” place…I categorize it to be very laid back. I was aware of where we were meeting for dinner Wednesday evening so I knew that I didn’t have to go for the sexy, sultry look but more of a cute, fun and casual outfit. Although, I truly believe in the phrase, “there’s no such thing as being overdressed,” this was one of those days where I threw that completely out of the window. I didn’t really have a process of putting these simple items together but below is sort of what my thought process was for the event:
- wear a Fall color; nothing too bright
- polish nails a neutral color that can be shown well in a dim area – – white
- wear comfortable yet fashionable shoes – – based this on the weather
After considering all of these things, I came up with this outfit:
Romper: Old Navy (no longer in stock)
Boots: Target (no longer in stock)
Denim jacket: Old Navy
Purse: MK Jet set travel tote
So the takeaways from this post are:
- When in Columbia go grab a bite to eat at Publico (check out the food blog on IG – TheSouthernBellestonian – to see food deets)
- Yes, you can be cute/sexy, comfy, and still work it like there is no tomorrow in an affordable manner
- the Iphone 7+ is capable of taking some pretty cool pictures
Hope this helps you in some way now or in the future! Don’t forget to check out my IG too – – thought I’d throw that in there! *wink*
