    Date Night Style for Valentine’s Day…

    Little Black Dress | Floral Cardigan | Black Ankle Strap Heels | Rebecca Minkoff Affair Bag | Gold Disc Necklace

    Nothing says I am ready for date night quite like a LBD β™₯ Although I am currently single, one of the only things I enjoy about dating is being able to get dressed up for a nice night out. Whether it is dinner at the newest LA hotspot or heading to a comedy show or concert, I tend to dress for success haha :p What can I say, I am a girly girl through and through πŸ˜‰

    Wearing a Little Black Dress has been my go to for every special occasion (big or small) since it is just timeless + classic. You can never go wrong with a great LBD and then just add a blazer, a moto or denim jacket or a cardigan to dress the look up or down – one key piece with the ability to be styled multiple ways…what gets better than that?

    I actually found this floral cardigan for only $10 at Burlington (it’s Philosophy and I was pretty stunned / thrilled when I found i on the clearance rack). When you aren’t sure of where your date may be or even if you will be heading out after work, I like to layer a cardigan with a little black dress so the ensemble is classy but not overly dressy and leaves a little room for a casual feel as well (just pick shoes to best match your mood of course :p).

    This pairing is somewhat in between ‘dressy‘ and ‘casual‘ making it a great look to replicate with just a few signature pieces you will want to mix + match within your wardrobe for the rest of 2017!

    The lighting is a little off in these shots because I made the mistake of venturing out to shoot during the day…bad idea haha Now I know why although it is a pain in the you know what, it is well worth it to wake up at 5am to shoot first thing in the morning before the sun is too bright πŸ˜‰ #TheStruggleIsReal If you ever thought blogging was a walk in the park, let me be the first to tell ya…it’s not :p

    Despite the lighting, the look itself is on point…

    I can’t honestly remember where I purchased this dress but I found a few similar options below along with two cardigan options since mine was a stroke of luck clearance find that I haven’t been able to track down online anywhere else.

    All options are budget friendly at under $50!

    I kept my shoes + bag classic black and simple as well – you can never go wrong with the basics πŸ˜‰
