I really love Saturdays…they are for relaxing with a macchiato or two…ok, right now more like one (#bumpstyle) but, still my favorite way to start the day…and for reading up on style inspo via IG, fave magazines and online editorials.
Also, the other key reason I love a saturday, is our saturDATE-nights. Always a great excuse to dress up and mix it up. Whether it be minimalist with a touch of sexy, gamine with a touch whimsy or mixing it up with textures for a pre-fall maximalist look.
#Aboutlastnight…the hubz and I went out to one of our San Diego fave’s (been going here since I can remember!) Costa Brava in the Pacific Beach area. Amazing Spanish cuisine, family ambiance and the cutest little rustic terrace complete with vines along the walls and cute lamps at the corner tables to amp up the romantic night-out factor! Highly recommend it as a go-to when visiting San Diego.
With this, I decided to mix-it-up with these on trend styles: gingham, pearls+crystals, and to top it off: my all-time fave velvet and girly-as-can-get pink heels. The statement off-the-shoulder gingham sleeves and the soft texture of the velvet made my perfect end-of-summer transitioning to fall date outfit. Romantic, cozy, a touch girly and maximalist in a subdued way. (Plus, all non-maternity specific pieces! At 25 weeks, I am so excited I can still repurpose my pre-pregnancy clothes…for now.)
Tip: personalize your datenight outfit with your favorite go-to jewlery. For me, this is my “MRS” delicate gold necklace, David Yurman Gold and Pearl twist bangle (gift from the hubby) and vintage gold rings.
Let me know what you think and how you personalize your favorite date-night outfits! Also, any fun online editorials you reference for inspo, please feel free to share in comments.
