3 Reasons Why You Should Dress-Up for Day Dates

Dress: ASOS (under $60!) | Shoes: Charlotte Russe (similar) | Purse: H&M | Sunglasses: Aldo (similar) So if you haven’t already noticed, Qais and I are super serious about our weekly dates. We’ve been together for almost 10 years. And we really do believe in the importance of dating your spouse. We usually go on a date night weekly. And we also add in some impromptu day dates after we’re done shooting for the blog. I used to be pretty casual dressing up for day dates. Usually a pair of jeans, sandals or flats and a cute tee or blouse. But since some of our dates are after shooting some looks for the blog, I have become pretty obsessed with dressing for day dates! That being said, here are my 3 reasons why you, girl, should be dressing up for day dates: 1.Because you get major use out of your wardrobe! The great thing about dressing up for day dates is you can pretty much throw anything on from your wardrobe! I love pairing some trousers from work with a cute blouse and sandals. Or a dress with one of my favorite heels (like the pair above). I am a huge believer and having your wardrobe work for you in every way. So it doesn’t hurt to have your work wardrobe “work” for dates too! 2.

Wedding Season Ready with Marshalls

Dress: Marshalls (only $39!! – but similar here and here) | Shoes: Charlotte Russe (similar here) | Purse: H&M (under $30!) | Earrings: Kate Spade | Sunglasses: Shades Crush c/o It’s officially wedding time and I can’t wait to attend my first wedding of the season! I absolutely love attending weddings and seeing the love in the air, eating the food and of course enjoying a few free drinks from the bar! I also love buying dresses for wedding season. And ask my hubby, each wedding I attend I need a new dress! I mean when else do you have an excuse to buy a dress and only wear it once!? I tend to splurge when it comes to buying guest-of-wedding dresses for no good reason except that I just want to, lol! But I think I found good middle ground that will keep my hubby and wallet pretty happy. I actually found this gorgeous dress I’m wearing at Marshalls for only $39! It regularly retails for $80 and is a amazing guest-of-wedding dress in my opinion! I couldn’t believe how many options for GOW that Marshalls had. I actually had to narrow down my selections! When I tried this dress on I knew it was the perfect dress to kick off the wedding season. It’s the perfect length, I love the crochet overlay and the high neck is such a nice detail to really pull the dress together. And to keep it simple I paired it with my black sandals…
