What to Wear: Date Night Downtown

Seeing as Valentine's Day is just a little less than a week away, I thought I'd share a date night outfit today. I am lucky enough to live in a city with a great downtown area, and since we're just a five minute drive away, it's a great place for my husband and me to spend a date night. There are nice restaurants and shops to visit in our downtown, but the whole place still has a pretty casual vibe, so I wanted to go with an outfit that was more on the sophisticated side, while still being casual.

Going all black in an outfit can be a little scary. Black is a color that can give off a lot of different impressions; bad ones like depressed or severe, or good ones like sophisticated or elegant. When the black is too loose or too structured, then you end up looking sad or stern. But if you create a balanced look, that has texture and shape to it, then you'll end up looking like the very glamorous Adele. That's why I used my black lace top, it's fun and light and breaks up the rest of the black.
