PFC #18: What to Wear to Impress Your Date!!


The Challenge: What to Wear to Impress Your Date!! Hosted by: Amber at Easy Petite Looks
*don't forget Courtney's PFC post here

I've been in a long term relationship for some years now, so my date look isn't anything special to me.  Whether I'm running errands, or going to dinner, or going to work, the look is pretty interchangeable, when I'm not in leggings or bumming around.  Usually the biggest difference is the height of my heels, and whether I do my hair or not.  This is not to say it's not important to me to impress my bf, he just doesn't care :D.

For this "date" night, I kept it sleek with black skinnies, a sequined tank, some 4" heels, and a blazer to keep me warm on these SF chilly nights. (pardon the lighting.. on my way out)

This new/old purse is probably my favorite addition to my closet, or in fact possessions.  Not because it's Chanel, and not because it's vintage Chanel.  It's because, aside from my mother's love and knowledge, this is one of the last things my mom passed down to me before she passed away. I'll definitely be taking extra care of this one, and hope to pass it down when the time comes.

Keepin' the arm swag simple, don't need to be fiddlin' with them on dates.

Sweet Nordstrom Rack find...

What sets my 'errand' outfits apart from 'date night' might be the effort I put into my hair.  Errands call for a messy bun, date night calls for a little more effort.  Here I did a sock bun with the addition of a small braid.  I feel braids make everything look prettier and more special!
