Head to Toe Chic: Date Night Essentials

Welcome to Niki at Glossy Blonde and my first link-up, "Head to Toe Chic!" This months topic is "Date Night Essentials." We can't wait to see your posts! 

I'm always so excited when I get a date night!  Brian and I don't get to go on them a lot, but when we do I really like to get dressed up.  When it comes to getting ready I have a number of essentials that are a must for any date night.

  1. I start with picking out a great dress.  I found this one on the clearance rack at Target for $8!
  2. Next I plan my accessories. I chose this necklace from Stella and Dot because I love the "bling" and how it dresses up any look. I also love to add a few great bracelets.
  3. I also love to pull out a clutch for special occasions.  The one I'm carrying is a few years old, but I also love this one at Target.
  4. After I've gotten the outfit, I get started on the beauty side of it.  I use a this straightener and also add Tresamme' serum with argon oil. It's similar to this, but I can't find the exact online.
  5. After finishing up my hair and the rest of my makeup I love to finish off my look with a great lip gloss with a high shine, like this one in Liquid Petal.
I also have another link up tomorrow with Jenn at The Brandied Pair.  Pick a blogger to swap styles with and link up with us! The button is on my sidebar for you to grab. : )

  1. Ahhh the ever elusive date night(: It has been a while for us. We are at a very busy season in our lives right now. Perhaps we can catch a movie once dance season is over this year. I am dying to see Son of God or Noah! We usually take our daughter with us on date nights. We figure that we will have plenty of time alone when she leaves for college in a few years. Love this sweater - great color! Susan

  2. Really love that cardigan, the color is great on you!

  3. Love the sleeve embellishment on that dress!! Adorable!


  4. I am working on this post a little later today and will be linking with you ladies my date night essentials. Meanwhile check out my latest sweater dress, layered up. Let me just say I love your version and that we might have some in common. =) Great link up. Congrats.

  5. Statement necklaces are a must for me too...gotta have some bling, hehe. Your LBD was such a steal for 8 bucks!

  6. I love your date night look and your essentials are great!!

  7. Very classy! We don't go out on date nights very often either, but I always try to put a little extra effort with some bling and sparkle!

  8. I agree--an LBD is a classic choice for a date night! I love that necklace as well--the layered look goes well with your dress.

  9. Perfect date night look! Love your lip color and that gorgeous cardigan!

  10. I love this look! We have a dinner at church we're going to on Saturday for married couples so I have to figure out what to wear for that! I'm sure I can get some inspiration from this link-up! :)

  11. Great date night tips! A little black dress is always a great place to start! Your cardigan is super cute and adds some fun color to the look!

  12. This is a lovely look - and I love the colour of that cardi.

    The outfit in your last post is just perfect, I think it must be my favourite look of yours! I'm mentally noting it down so I can look out for similar items!

  13. Cute look! I know that Jim and I are lucky to get date nights whenever we want, and I'm trying to savor them while we still can. Because I know things will change once kiddos come into the picture. I will say that I never really have a reason to get dressed up this cute, you guys must have the coolest date nights!

  14. The necklace is gorgeous! Very cute date night outfit :)

  15. Love this look! I can't believe that dress was only $8--it's so pretty!

  16. Visting from Tres Chic fashion. Love that clutch. Cute date night outfit.
