WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

The best season is finally within reach—summer! With summer comes adorable sundresses. However, spring can’t stop us Fashionistas from pulling out those sundresses a little too early. This fellow Hawkeye told me she was wearing this adorable outfit for a date, but this is perfect for a girl’s night out, a date night, or a beautiful spring day.

This beautiful mauve-colored dress made this Fashionista’s skin tone pop, as well as her gorgeous hair. The shape of the dress is perfect on her body, accentuating her waist, and showing off her collarbones with the scooped neckline. I loved how she layered an adorable sunflower kimono over the dress, which is perfect when spring days get a little breezy. I would have never thought to pair her kimono with the dress, and it is so cute.

Her accessories are to die for, with the simple gold hoop earrings and a second set of post earrings. I love her long gold necklace because of the unique jewels it sports. I also told her how much I am obsessed with Mantra Bands lately, and hers is no exception. She’s wearing a gold band that says “Live Laugh Love.” This Fashionista’s shoes are comfortable and cute. Her flats make it easy to walk around downtown at night while still matching her accessories and looking great with the outfit. Finally, I had to comment on her makeup—I love her bold red lip. She also stuck with a relaxed makeup look on her cheeks and did a brown smokey eye, along with a hint of gold, with her eyeshadow.

I loved this look and will be sure to copying her ideas for future date nights. After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
