I like date nights. Now, I admit, they don't happen as often as they used to. My fiance and I make time to see each other as much as our schedules will allow....but that usually means a night curled up on the couch. With major expenses on the horizon (like a wedding and finding a place to live) - those nights at the movies or eating a nice meal out? They are a little more scarce. For the most part, I am okay with this. It just makes it even more exciting when we actually do get the chance to go out!
Recently, we went to dinner and a movie. So, I decided to put on a super cute and girly outfit for the occasion. It featured purple lipstick, an oversize heart print button down, a glitter headband, and a pair of skinny jeans. Perfect for a causal date night. The shirt was a gift from my parents (they picked it up on a recent trip to London) and the glitter headband was something I have had kicking around for a while but never actually bothered to wear. As for the makeup, it was a simple eye look using shades from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, lots of black liner, and the Bite Lip Crayon in Grape.
So, without further ado...this is my casual date night outfit and makeup!
I am very happy with how this look turned out. It was simple, easy, but still had lots of girly elements to it. Personally, I absolutely love the heart print shirt. It is roomy but very easy to wear. This was just one of those nights that I really enjoyed the process of getting ready. With such a hectic schedule most of the time, this was a nice change. It meant that I actually got to have a little fun, play around with different makeup ideas, and see where my inspiration took me. Speaking of makeup ideas....this is a closer look at the makeup I ended up wearing for my date night:
I think there is something special about going on a date. The excitement as you rummage through your closet, the butterflies in your stomach, and going home at the end of the night with a smile on your face. Even though my fiance and I have been together for over two and a half years, I still feel that way when we have those evenings out. I love it!
So, that was my casual date night look. What do you like to wear out?
