What to Wear- Date Night

There's nothing a Bombshell likes more than a reason to celebrate - finishing a grueling project at home or work, winning your dollar back from the Powerball lottery, lasting a whole week without having to re-do your nails - no occasion is too mundane.

If you have nothing else to celebrate this week, celebrate the end of the week by getting dressed up and going out on a date night. Date nights with friends are just as much fun as date nights with your significant other; whatever you do, wherever you go, take a little extra time tonight to get ready. Pour a glass of wine, take a long bath or shower, put perfume on every pulse point and slip into a fabulous outfit. Take this one from Lane Bryant, for example:



The smocked shoulder blouse (available in a variety of colors) in red infuses a shot of glamour & femininity into any look. I love the detail at the shoulders, complimented by the faux-mandarin collar and pin-tucked hem. Pair the blouse with:
Micro-sanded bermuda shorts in black. The micro-sanding treatment gives this short a little more ooomph, a light sheen that will take you one notch above casual. The bermuda short is a more modern, fashion-forward answer to the capri pant. I love it because women of all ages can wear this length - it's not too bare, nor is it too covered up. Now for accessories...


I would recommend ditching the necklace and only wearing the earrings. With the smocked-shoulder blouse, you've already got enough detail going on throughout the neckline. Plus, I like to break up jewelry sets to mix and match my own. These earrings are fantastic with the rest of the outfit, though. They are sleek and interesting, but understated. Speaking of sleek:



Few shoes combine sexy and sleek like the slingback. And with a low kitten heel, you'll actually be able to walk around and enjoy yourself while out on the town. What a concept!
