WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

Summers in Ohio are pretty unpredictable. It can be horrendously hot, frigid or (about once a summer) a really nice day. Not only is it unpredictable day by day, but it’s pretty unpredictable by the hour. So when you’re planning outfits for any occasion, you need to be ready for any change in weather. It’s a partially cloudy day? Be prepared for a thunderstorm. The Weather Channel said it would be warm? Be ready for an unbearably warm day. Anyhow, you get my point. And when would be the least ideal time to not be prepared? Definitely date night.

This Fashionista knows the Ohio drill and has her date night outfit ready for any weather. She’s ready for everything from a dinner on a patio to sitting in an A/C-blasted movie theatre. Lightweight girlfriend jeans are comfortable for any occasion. Some people consider wearing blue jeans with blue shirts a taboo, but I think they’re crazy and that it always looks good. This Fashionista chose to pair her jeans with a cute blue tank top and military-style jacket. Her fun metallic sandals give the outfit some extra night-out fun, as well as her fringed, bright-colored necklace and bangles. Her hair looks effortlessly stunning in beach waves, which are able to survive through all elements.

One Simple Change: Depending on where you work, swap out the jeans for some chinos and you’ll be ready for a day on the job! The blouse, jacket and necklaces are all great pieces to have a fun work outfit.
