What to wear on date night – outfits for any occassion
Finding the perfect outfit for any occasion can be hard. I find that browsing Pinterest is really useful, although often I can’t afford the designer outfits, I can find similar colour and styles of pieces of clothing and put them together in a similar way. The majority of my current wardrobe comes from second hand shops, with the balance being basics and on trend pieces from places like The Warehouse and Kmart.
Sometimes the best place to find a new outfit is by actually shopping your own wardrobe. I know before I started simplifying my clothes I often had items hanging in the closet with their tags still one.
Even now, I play dress-up probably once every 2 months to find different ways to make outfits of items I already own. Wearing dressed tucked into skirts, reversing tops or wearing dresses as tops with pants can give you a few extra outfit options you never thought of. With a little inspiration anything is possible.
In the early days of dating my husband I often found myself changing several times before a date – trying to find the perfect thing to wear, and often I was inappropriately dressed for the venue/activity – because I was all about ‘cuteness’ over comfort (or warmth). Now I’m in my 30’s I dress more sensibly in general, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to dress up for dates with my husband.
With our 5th wedding anniversary this month, we’re guaranteed to be going on at least one date this month, so I’m on the hunt for outfit inspiration.
This post should probably more accurately be called – ‘What would Natalie wear’, as I have been drooling over the Instagram of Natalie Borton where she often posts ‘legit mom style’ outfits. She also regularly posts outfit pictures on her blog Thoughts by Natalie. She can often be found wearing the same items over and over again, but styles them differently – depending on the occasion.
Go check out Natalie – you will love her wardrobe as much as I do!
