If you know me, then you know I’m giving skinny jeans a little bit of a break right now. I’m into those high waisted, relaxed styles. And I’ve been living in this cropped, distressed pair lately. Mainly because they’re comfortable and can be styled SOOO many ways.
I wore them yesterday with a graphic tee and woven mules for running errands, and you can easily slip on a relaxed tank and slides for another casual look.
But today’s post is all about how to dress these babies up. Which I am feeling.
Here’s what I think you need to take it up a notch for date night: strappy heels, an OTS top, and a little statement jewelry.
My favorite strappy heels? This basic black pair. They’re truly my go-to for dressing up anything.
And OTS tops are everywhere right now. This black one is on sale for $15 and still available in all sizes. If you’re looking for something with more detail, I can also vouch for this embroidered cutwork top on sale for under $15 and available in all sizes.
As for statement jewelry, there are so many options. I am getting into the big, colorful earrings right now, and it all started with these tassel earrings. They’re not too big, not too small, and don’t weigh your ear down.
But I feel like the right statement necklace could also do the trick. Whatever your personal preference is, just go for it!
Now do you even care about this outfit or do you just care about this gorgeous little garden that I’m posing in? I mean, it is really pretty.
I lived in this small German town, Neustadt an der Waldnaab, for nearly 3 years. And once I found this rose garden hiding behind some of the town offices, I knew I would have to take photos in it one day. “That day” ended up being last week. The week before I leave Germany for good!
I’ll definitely miss it here, but I’m excited for our next adventure 🙂
