Simple Date Night Outfit: Valentine's Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! I enjoyed a relaxing evening at home on the actual night of and made dinner for us. Don’t worry though, I did get to have my night out in celebration with a cute little date night outfit! We had dinner at Benihana – an amazing Hibachi restaurant & enjoyed a movie (John Wick: Chapter 2 – which did not disappoint, action packed start to finish)! When it comes to date night outfits for me, I am more of a comfy casual gal with the exception of my shoes. My shoes are the one piece of my outfit that is always chosen on appearance and not comfort. That’s just the price we pay for fashion ladies! I don’t always know what S is going to have in store for me when he plans a date night out so I have to be prepared for practically anything.

For obvious reasons, I chose a shade of red for the centerpiece of my look. This dress from Old Navy is one of my favorites! I am always looking for simple, comfortable pieces that can be paired with both Toms & Louboutins (currently swooning over these wedges)! That is priority one when finding staple pieces for my wardrobe. I like this particular dress so much because of the longer, elbow length sleeves. Old Navy also has a super cute midi-dress that is more form fitting & very flattering that I love pairing with booties.
I honestly could not recall where I picked up the pretty lace blazer but I found a similar one here. I wear this blazer ALL the time. It’s my favorite piece to throw on with a simple shirt, jeans, & top knot. I live in top knots, which is probably one reason why my hair never grows :/

I completely forgot to snap a good pic the day of but rocked them at work this week :)
My favorite piece of this outfit are these Caged Animal Print Pumps. They are my favorite not only because they are adorable & comfortable – I love a good animal print accessory – but because I paid a whopping $5 on them! I love Christian Siriano’s line for Payless. All the pieces are higher fashion looks but at extremely affordable prices. On top of the already low prices, Payless seems to always be having some kind of sale. I got this pair along with another great staple pair of gray pumps for only $20 during a BOGO including clearance sale (these were on clearance for $10 but are currently just $15).
I'm weird so you will probably never see a "normal" selfie of me LOL

Last but definitely not least are all my jewelry picks! I love Kendra Scott & the fact that the necklaces are so stackable. Both necklaces were Christmas gifts. The arrowhead was from my SIL & the longer necklace was from S. The Danielle earrings I wear constantly, I just love them so much. The pearl white is my favorite and goes with everything! The rose gold watch is a simple (and fairly cheap) BKE watch that picked up a few years ago.
Hope everyone had a lovely LOVE day & every day that is. I'm going to get better at these outfit posts but this will do for now! XOXO
