A Date Night Outfit
Date nights are not something my husband and I generally indulge in. Unless you consider eating Chinese takeaway off our coffee table whilst watching The Walking Dead a romantic interlude. So when the opportunity arose to dine out together, I jumped at the chance. I'm not sure what I was most excited about; eating dinner off a table that sits higher than 50cm or the opportunity to get dressed up.
Choosing an outfit was remarkable simple, I had a new dress from Mint Velvet that I was dying to wear and the previous week I had won a pair of gorgeous black boots from Wallis, both ideal for a stylish yet comfortable date night outfit.
The bag was kindly lent to me by my lovely friend Lucy (aka The Luxe Life) and is from Stella McCartney. The dress itself has beautiful detailing across the front and for that reason I chose not to accessorise the outfit with a necklace, sometimes less is indeed more. The cute zip tassel is the only decoration needed on these elegant chic boots.
Mint Velvet is without a doubt my favourite brand of the moment. Creating a clothing range that encompasses ‘relaxed glamour’ was the goal they originally set out and have undoubtedly since achieved. Mint Velvet are firm believers that fashion should work with your life, so their collections will take you from 9-9, whatever you're doing, with a few "relaxed glamour" tweaks along the way. This video takes you through 5 days, and nights, of Mint Velvet style.
