His and Her Style – Dressing For a Day Date –
Can you guys believe it’s December already? It’s crazy how fast this year flew by! Today I have another his and her post. We had a couple of kid-free hours so we had a little date in the park. Hopefully this will give you some ideas or tips if you are wondering what to wear on a day date. If you have been married as long as we have it probably doesn’t matter too much but we still like to put in some effort. Instead of a t-shirt Chandler wore a button down and instead of my usual go-to denim I wore a dress. You want to be comfortable and still feel like yourself, while showing them the best version of you. Keep reading for details on these pieces, discount codes and more info on dressing for a day date.
First up, I have to tell you about the newest member to my closet. This handbag is a definite favorite. I have carried it everywhere, everyday for the past few weeks. Seriously obsessed. It’s by Sakroots and is from their new Seni Leather Collection. I love the cross-body style with flap and the black and white print goes with everything, especially since I am not opposed to mixing prints. Also be sure to check out their Holiday gift guides. They cover different types of women from jet-setters to tech lovers. While we are talking handbags, when you are wondering which one to bring on your date, steer clear of a clutch or tiny handbag. A cross-body style like this one is perfect, hands free!
Now that the weather has finally cooled down here in the South Chandler can wear his winter cap. I love him in this beanie. It’s from a favorite brand of ours, RELLA, you may remember this post. It’s also cashmere, so soft! Right now they are having an amazing sale, 50% off everything with code RELLA. It’s also the perfect accessory for a Winter day date because you will want to make sure you stay warm and aren’t at all uncomfortable. Also how cool are these shades? Both of ours are from 2SEELIFE. Chandler is wearing the Clubmaster in Tortoise Blue and I am in the Modern Chic Cat Eye, also Tortoise.
As I mentioned earlier, when you are wondering what to wear on a day date you will want to show off the best version of you. You’ll also want to wear something you feel confident in but also comfortable since these dates can consist of walking/ hiking or anything outdoors. You definitely don’t want to worry about a dress that rides up or will give the park a show with a gust of wind. Denim is a great option. When worn with a cute top and jacket you will definitely impress. Chandler sees me in jeans everyday though so I went with this Knot Sisters dress that I got from Maude. You may remember them from here and here. I love the length of this dress, perfect for a walk and/ or picnic in the park. I also didn’t have to worry about wind or it riding up when I sat. Belting it had the added benefit of showing off my shape. Plus the dark floral print is on trend for Winter and has the perfect colors to go with my Sakroots bag. Adding this over-sized, cardigan kept me warm and added a bit of my boho style to the look.
Keep your accessories and jewelry simple when headed outdoors for a date. Lately I’ve been wearing this Songbird Necklace from The Songbird Collection, it’s the perfect, dainty everyday necklace. I also wore my wedding ring (of course) and a classic watch. Keep it simple. Actually that’s a good thing to keep in mind when dressing for your day date. KISS – Keep It Simple, Stupid. Don’t over think things, stay warm, feel confident and have so much fun! If you’re married you know these dates are few and far between. Have a great weekend! She’s wearing: a Knot Sisters Dress from Maude, a Free People cardigan sweater, Zara ankle boots, Sakroots Seni Leather Crossbody handbag (in collaboration with Shopping Links), 2SEELIFE sunglasses, Daniel Wellington watch and The Songbird Necklace from The Songbird Collection.
