if it’s wednesday then it’s time for date night. nothing too fancy as i’ve been working round the clock this past week with several irons in the fire. but it’s important to set aside work come five or six o’clock and head out the door to grab a bite to eat or catch a movie with my main squeeze of thirty-four years, mr. style.
lately, i’ve been on a black and white kick so it was an easy decision to throw on this black militaryesque blazer from ralph lauren. the inset velvet around the collar and buttons give the jacket enough oomph to dress it up or down. today, i’ve taken the middle road with the addition of black denim from nydj. the bow tie blouse adds a feminine touch as do the bow suede pumps. add a festive lip color (frenemy) a spotted calf hair clutch and date night is looking to be a casual affair with a little flair.

Polished and feminine for date night.

Great jacket! We have date nights as well, and traditions like Saturday brunches, too. I think it’s important and we look forward to them each week. You look marvelous. Enjoy!

Great date night outfit! You’re giving me some great ideas on how to dress up my usual jeans. Congrats on 34 yrs. with Mr. Style! My husband & I have been happily married 30 yrs. & counting & I agree that it’s important to set aside date nights/time to get out & do activities you enjoy together.
congrats on 30 years, megan! i’ve always joked that i’ve never once thought about divorce. murder? now that’s a whole other story.
