A Cheap Date Outfit

I may be single but that doesn’t stop me from putting on a date outfit and having a final fling with summer!

Outfit: Striped retro style dress, black moto jacket, red kitten heels, vintage red belt, red bandana, purple pixie cut

I’ve got a problem with people who save stuff for ‘one days’ and ‘special occasions.’ I’ve touched on it here before so I won’t get too heated about it in this post.

One of those things I was thinking about was fancy clothes reserved for date nights. Dates are still a foreign concept to me but I wondered what would happen if I put on cute clothes and then DIDN’T go out on a date. Turns out, the world kept spinning and nothing bad happened.

Both were newly thrifted this summer and both had the perfect vintage flair I was looking for.

The juxtaposition between my purple hair and the sweet look was kind of jarring. So I added some extra pieces to edge it up. A moto jacket, bandana, and an old belt that reminds me of fire were just the thing.

I don’t know about you but I would swipe right on this outfit!

Some tights, a thick jacket, and a non-strapless dress should get the job done.

So why not put on your best digs and take yourself out somewhere nice?

Love it! My mom is one of those people who will wear fancy outfits for everyday tasks and I admire her for that…I’m unfortunately one of those people who saves outfits for “special occasions”…*insert shame face*

I adore this outfit! Also your hair looks awesome with a bandana! I’m definitely not ones to save items for special occasions – I always tend to be the one overdressed for things but I am perfectly fine with that!

This look is gorgeous! I love the contrast of the bandana and moto jacket with the sweet dress and heels. Very West Side Story (the bad-ass chicas, not Maria)

What an adorable date night outfit! I may not be single anymore, but I still go on “Laura dates” all the time – you still need that you time! Also, those shoes are AMAZING. Seventy-nine cents?! Girl, you are a thrifting goddess!
