Summer Date Night
I can’t believe we are halfway through August! It seems like just yesterday that we welcomed summer, and now the season is slowly starting to change to fall. Hopefully we have a few more weeks of summer left – I still have a lot of great dresses to share!
Earlier this summer, I was at my cousin Megan’s bridal shower and she was wearing the most gorgeous cream-colored lace dress. She’d styled it with lighter colors and accessories; it was such a romantic look and she looked stunning in it. Literally, the next day I was shopping at Goodwill and found the blue version of the dress. I loved it so much, I ordered the cream colored one from Target the next day!
Megan styled the dress a bit differently than I did, pairing with lots of lighter colors and accessories which played nicely against her olive-colored skin and dark brown curly hair. I, on the other hand, looked a bit too washed out wearing the same palette so I selected darker accessories. I ended up wearing this look out for a date with Jon. Now that he’s home, instead of
studying gallivanting around Norway, it’s rare that we find time to go out for a “nice” date. We changed up our normal routine of weekend bike rides and had a lovely dinner together. In fact, I think most of the time that he sees me all dressed is when he’s taking my blog pictures! Whoops!
