ruffle dress

Date night or girly day dates require an upgrade from the beloved t-shirt and jeans. Enter the off the shoulder ruffle dress. I don’t usually wear a ton of pink, but this is the exception. It’s the perfect shade to compliment most shoes like these striped espadrilles. I’m sharing more date night favorites below. Tomorrow I’m sharing some finds from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Don’t worry, I’ll do the hard work going through thousands of product and sharing a couple of my favorites that are worth your time. Meanwhile, read up on how to prepare now, HERE. Happy humpday!

If you are in search of a dress for Friday’s date night and your friend’s wedding, this dress fits the bill. I’m loving that this dress is not only under $60, but looks great with a headscarf and lace-up sandals. Its been so hot here full of that dry dessert heat that I admittedly love, but also love to hate. Nothing better than a light ruffle dress for day dates and nights out to keep cool. Just don’t forget the sunblock. Also this dress comes in 5 colors, which is your fave? See also here for a dress for every occasion.

If you buy anything this week in October, make sure it’s velvet. It’s the hottest material and worn best with basics you already have in your closet: a white dress, or denim on denim. See my previous post on affordable frayed jeans. I love that the heel is low enough so I can run to school pick-up when I’m late. True story. If one has to be late, at least arrive in velvet, yes? High fives all around for sporting fall’s hottest trend a little under the $50 mark, leaving some wiggle room to go crazy Halloween costumes. More of that coming soon.
