Mama loves style: A summer night outfit


Our summer is full of a lot of fun with barbecues, camping and beach trips, swimming and bike rides. Another thing that I’m loving are fun nights out when the weather cools down and we get to dress up and enjoy an evening on the town.

What to wear for a summer date night

At the end of the year, my husband and I had the idea to have a once a month date night, trading off months of planning the date. I know a lot of people who have date nights once a week, but for us, there’s no way we could make that work.

All summer my kids and I spend a lot of time in our swimsuits, whether it be at our gym pool or in the creek, so I take any chance I get to dress up, do my makeup and wear a dress. I love summer nights out!

A simple dress in a bright color is flattering and feminine and easily dressed up or down for summer and all year-round. To dress it down, I’d pair it with flat sandals and a gold bracelet with my hair in a messy bun.

A statement necklace looks cute with any outfit whether it be a neon dress or a pair of jean cut-offs and a white v-neck T-shirt. I love to add a fun necklace to a pretty but plain outfit that needs a little more dimension.

Wedge clogs are definitely in style for a reason. I love how chic and how comfortable they are at the same time. These are sky high and definitely lengthen your legs (I can always use a little leg lengthening).

I think I’m going to go plan a night out with my husband and friends right now. What do you wear for your summer nights out?
