Not telling you where he is taking you on a date certainly doesn’t make things easy for you. Let’s be honest, dressing up for a date with your boyfriend is never easy. And if you don’t even know where you two are going … well, let’s just say we all know how your dressing room looks like then. Clothes lying everywhere while you are standing in front of the mirror, screaming “I have nothing to wear” when the doorbell rings. Well not anymore! Here’s the ultimate date outfit you can wear wherever he is taking you this summer.
You know what, you can call your boyfriend right now and tell him you won’t be ever late on your date this summer. Because guess what? I found a perfect date outfit for you. The summer date outfit you can wear no matter where he is taking you. Seriously! This date outfit is just perfect for any party, dinner at the restaurant, picnic by the sea, walk in the park, to his parents, gallery, theatre and even opera. Wait, I was exaggerating when I wrote everywhere. You can’t really wear this dress and sandals to the golf course or picnic on the sandy beach. And the mountains (see why here). But for everywhere else, this summer date outfit will be more than perfect.
THE PERFECT SUMMER DATE OUTFIT
I know you love seeing my EDITs with 5 or 6 different outfits you can wear to a particular occasion or place. Yet, I have only one outfit for you this time. Simply because this date outfit works great for any type of date. I know, it sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it is. As said, you can’t wear it for golf or any other date that includes sports. I mean the real sports. But hey, romantic as summer days can be, I bet he won’t drag you chasing a ball or climbing up the mountain. Even though, thinking better watching sunset or sunrise on the hill above the city, does sound nice, doesn’t it?
Whatsoever, I’m pretty sure he would let you know before taking you to the mountains. So this date outfit I have here for you still looks like the perfect summer date outfit when you don’t know where exactly he is taking you.
So what makes this outfit so special and perfect for any situation? Keep reading, I’m letting you know in a paragraph or two.
IT’S ROMANTIC, IT’S ELEGANT, AND IT’S CASUAL
Wait, did I write elegant and casual in the same sentence? Yes, I did! Because this outfit really looks elegant and casual at first glance. That is to those who don’t know denim is haute couture this season. Remember, I mentioned this in my 2018 spring summer fashion report. Ps. In case you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check it here. Although, I doubt you haven’t. This has been your favourite blog post on Brunette from Wall Street since the day one.
IT SURE IS CASUAL SUMMER DATE OUTFIT
Anyway, back to this beautiful and romantic summer date outfit. As said, it’s romantic, elegant and casual. Plus very trendy and fashionable. All thanks to the denim jacket. Yes, a denim jacket is that one item you really need this summer. That is apart from the checked blazer when on duty. Remeber I wrote about it here!
Still, when off-duty there is only one jacket you need this season. The denim jacket. Surely, this summer lace dress would look stunning without the denim jacket as well. But not appropriate for any situation. We all know how it feels coming to a barbeque party, for example, overdressed. Whatsoever, with a denim jacket over this beautiful lace dress, you won’t ever feel overdressed. Nor underdressed. Remember, the latest fashion trends?
BUT IS THIS REALLY ELEGANT SUMMER DATE OUTFIT?
While the denim jacket will make you look trendy in this staple lace dress, you can take the denim jacket off if you realize your boyfriend is taking you to an elegant event. Like to opera for example. Simply take off the denim jacket and put on the long gloves. Yes, wearing a pair of long gloves in your chain shoulder bag is a must for a date like this.
As said, you never know where he is taking you. And this one little accessory can upgrade your date dress immediately. Besides, it doesn’t take much space. So walking around with a pair of gloves shouldn’t be a problem to you. I mean it’s not like walking around with a pair of sneakers.
IF NOTHING ELSE, IT SURE IS ROMANTIC SUMMER DATE OUTFIT
Mentioning the sneakers, it’s summer so stick to your fancy strappy sandals. They will give you a lift and elongate your silhouette. Making you look like a goddess in this beautiful blue lace dress. Surely, these heels aren’t the best shoes for a date on the beach. Yet, there is nothing to worry about. I have a solution for this too. I wrote about it last year over here. Remember?
SHOP AND WEAR MY SUMMER DATE DRESS
Finally, what you are already dying to know. Where to get my dreamy summer date dress. And everything else that I’m wearing, of course.
I get a commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.
You know the drill, just touch/click on the dress, shoes, denim jacket, sandals and all the makeup you see in the EDIT. That is once you spot that pink boxes. And a link will take you to the store where I got these things. Alternatively, if this sounds slightly confusing, you can click/touch the items in the widget under the EDIT. The same thing will happen. Ps. I made sure to add more links to the stores where you can get my romantic date dress as it’s really difficult to get this gorgeous Self-Portrait blue lace dress.
Oh, and don’t forget to pin, save and print this EDIT. You know, to make sure you won’t have to call your boyfriend just before the time he is supposed to pick you up, saying you can’t come because you are sick. You know what I mean. Or even worse crying and sobbing in your underwear when he rings at the doorbell. Clearly not ready for the date.
MY FIRST SELF-PORTRAIT DRESS
No, you haven’t seen this gorgeous romantic maxi lace dress on me before. That is if you don’t follow me on Instagram and LIKEtoKNOW.it Well, blame it on yourself to be the last one to see me in this dress. And make sure you don’t miss any of my new clothes.
There are so many clothes and shoes from my Spring Summer Shopping list (in case you don’t know what I mean, click here and check later) I already got but haven’t published here yet. Many of them are already on my Instagram and LIKEtoKNOW.itthough. So be sure to follow me there too. Believe me, you don’t want to miss my new … You know what, not saying anything else. Just check it!
Anyway, back to this beautiful lace off-the-shoulder maxi dress. Well, it’s not really off-the-shoulder. At least I don’t wear it like this. Not sure if I mentioned before, but this is my first Self-Portraitdress. Yes, I finally got it.
I must confess, it took me too long to get it. I kept thinking I won’t have anywhere to wear it. Until that breaking post (check here)! I mean posting tips on how to always have somewhere to wear clothes you thought you actually don’t, wouldn’t be legit if I didn’t follow them myself.
Whatsoever, I got this dress now, and I love it. In fact, if not for rain and cold, I would wear it every day. I bet you know what I mean if you have anything from Self-Portrait. This fine lace is just like no other. So soft, so well crafted. The quality of this dress is truly impeccable. I only wish I got this in my real size. I had to order one size up as the size XXXS was already sold out.
Like I said, this dress is selling out too quickly. Well, all Self-Portrait dresses I want to have do. Especially in my size. Still, you can try your luck here. Or check the links to other stores, under the EDIT, as well. Alternatively, you can get this dress in navy. Fingers crossed you get this beautiful Self-Portrait maxi lace dress. It’s a must-have for this summer. Not mentioning, a quality lace like this never goes out of fashion.
Seems like I simply don’t get tired of repeating my self when it comes to the denim jacket. Sorry but not sorry! You need denim jacket this season. Wait, forget I said “this season”. A denim jacket is a staple and you should have it hanging next to your black blazer. Or even better, laying by your bed so you can grab it straight away when in a rush.
Surely, you know this denim jacket very well by now. I keep wearing it ever since I got it. It really goes great with everything. Plus, I got it on the budget at H&M. You can shop it here. Also, added more denim jackets in the widget above, as these run out of the stock too quickly too.
Missed my sandals? I sure did. I still love these Aquazzura sandals I got last year. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the same pair online. I did, however, find one with kitten heels (shop here). Also, I added few Aquazzura sandals that I really love and really hoping to get this season, in the widget under the EDIT.
Lastly, a shoulder bag. I usually don’t mention what bag I’m wearing as I don’t have a thing for bags. Wait, who I’m lying to? You know I do, but bags tend to be last on my shopping list. Still, I can’t skip a shoulder chain bag this time. Especially not because we are talking about what to wear for a date. And we all know we need to take all the makeup we own with us. Just in case … you know, our makeup melts, or get smudged. Besides, a girl never knows when she will come back home. Not to forget to mention the gloves again. As said, be sure to put long gloves in your bag too. In case he takes you to the opera. You never know, he might just do this.
Find some of the most fashionable and desirable shoulder bags in the widget below. Can you guess, which one I’m getting for myself?
