The Perfect Date Night Outfit | What I Wore

February 10, 2017

I used to dislike the term ‘date night’, before we had kids, I just thought it was so cheesy! Well, I know now it was because basically every day and night was ‘date night’! Before kids, hubby and I used to go out for dinner on a whim, or catch a movie, or have impromptu trips to the beach on the weekends. Now, time together for just us takes planning, lots of planning and the babysitting stars to align!

On Wednesday we had a little mid-week date night as we saw a movie premiere then had a quick burger dinner afterwards. Out of the house for four hours, yet this took at least three days’ forward planning, and hubby’s sister to graciously baby sit for us. It was so nice to get out of the house during the week and actually chat properly. Herman and I actually met 13 years ago this week, so it was a low key way to celebrate that date, too.

Often when date night rolls around I’ve placed so much importance on organising everything (dinner, clothes, babysitting for the girls; ensuring the house is relatively clean; expressing milk etc) that my outfit often falls to the way side. It’s ironic that I spend most of my free time planning outfits in my head to wear to occasions that aren’t yet planned, yet when I do have something to go to I throw something together. And that is also true of girls’ nights, not just date nights!

When I received this outfit from Frankie and Co, I knew it would be a perfect date night outfit. I know Valentine’s Day is around the corner and if you’re headed out you might be turning your thoughts to an outfit, or if you’re like me, you won’t be (haha) but I have come up with a great little idea for you. It’s perfect because it’s super comfy, current and affordable, and with the white jeans (woo) you’re kind of celebrating the fact you’re not around children for the night!

This top is TRUE LOVE. Like honestly even if you’re not headed on a date night, you can pair this baby with shorts or a denim skirt and you’re done. It’s light and floaty and a perfect nod to two trends – OTS/one shouldered tops and ruffles. It’s also flattering and will skim over any lumps and bumps (if that’s what you’re after). I’m wearing a size 10 and it is a comfy fit, I could have probably gone to the 8, but I do like my clothing a little looser.

These jeans are also fab – they’re not too thick so they’re great for hot weather; yet they’re thick enough to not show every lump and bump. I’m wearing size 10 and they’re true to size.

Do you make an effort to go on date nights with your significant other? Or are all you all about the girls nights? (I’m a bit of both!)
