Perfect Summer Date Night Outfit
Happy Memorial Day!! I hope everyone has had a great long weekend so far. I missed yesterday’s post and I certainly missed talking to you girls. It got a bit crazy here and my hands stayed full the entire day. Barry and Chase worked this weekend, Raegan had a horrible flare up with endometriosis and I had Brooklyn. We didn’t get to go shopping, but I did manage to get her to help me deep clean the kitchen. We washed walls, cleaned and polished cabinets, rearranged furniture and it wore us both out! I just knew Barry was going to be impressed when he got home. He walked in, got him something to eat, and never noticed. We had to point out furniture that had been moved and ladies…it was big pieces of furniture HA! He is oblivious to his normal surroundings HAHA!
Since I wasn’t able to head out and shop for a cute holiday outfit, I decided to share a really cute red floral blouse outfit with you. It’s the closest thing I had to red, white and blue. I will be styling jean outfits this week, but I really wanted to get in some workwear, date night and church outfits for everyone. I know we all have different jobs and the dress guidelines are different for us all.
There are a few things I LOVE about this blouse. It stands out, the pattern is gorgeous and the bow-tie makes this top pop! If sleeveless is not for you, no worries, I have found some other options for you below.
This top hits at the hip and has an elastic hem – so it can be worn outside like a bubble hem, or easily tucked inside. This is from New York & Company and it does not disappoint! It has a self-tie bow, so you can make it as tight or loose as you prefer. It is lined and it’s 100% polyester. It comes in sizes XS-XXL and is $44.95, but NY&CO is still having that fantastic 50% off SALE!! So it’s only $22.47 right now! That’s a steal to me! This would be gorgeous worn as a shell underneath a jacket or cardigan. Another option is to wear it with jeans and or a skirt. I looked a white skirt everywhere in my size and come up empty! Look at this top with the white skirt pictured below. Shop the NY&CO SALE HERE.
I will tell you that this top ran a bit large on me and I did not notice until we were through that I accidentally ordered a Large instead of a Medium, so make sure you stick to your regular size. See the Blous HERE.
I chose High-Waist Pull-On Crop Pant that feels amazing on! These do fit a little snug, I am wearing a Medium but probably would have opted for a Large. I do not like wearing skin-tight pants and I do not care if they get a little saggy. I just am at the age, I do not like really “fitting” pants, so I normally go up a size. They do feel really good on, I guess another reason I don’t like form fitting dress pants is my legs are kind of long, so I don’t want to look like I’m all legs LOL! Inseam on these are 24 1/2 inches, they are high-waisted and are fitted through the hips. These come in sizes XS-XXL and comes in 8 different colors!! These are a transition piece also!! See the Crop Pants HERE.
I love the black blocked heel sandals I am wearing. If you stand a lot or just don’t do well with some heels, these are super cute and SUPER comfortable to wear. They don’t hurt your feet nor your back at all! These were around $20 from Amazon from City Classified. I am loving this brand and have purchased many of their shoes. These sandals are similar to the leopard print shoes I wore in this post. See the blocked heel sandal HERE. These come in multiple colors also.
I chose one of my favorite clutches to wear with this outfit. This is the circle clutch from JustFab and you can see it HERE. This clutch is only $29.95 but will be way cheaper if you are a VIP Member with JustFab. I have linked different options below including some of the cute straw handbags that are trending this Summer.
I wear many different sunglasses all year round and these are some of my favorites. I purchased these a while back from Amazon and absolutely LOVE them. They are aviator style and give you a high def view when wearing them. I have found as I get older I need a clear sunglass that helps my vision and these are some good ones, plus they are affordable! See the shades HERE.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope your Memorial Day is an awesome one! I am definitely heading out to see what sales are going on today – as I am by myself and can shop and look with ease. What are you girls doing today?? I bet your day is going to kick my day to the back of the line!! Happy Monday!!!!

Hi, I love your blog! You are so good with fashion. I have my own Pinterest board titled Clothes – B&B blog so I can reference it whenever I need to get dressed and look good! That’s the key – LOL! In this post, where did you purchase the pants? The link takes you to the blouse and not the pants. Thanks. Have a happy Memorial Day!
Hey Kay!!! Welcome to the blog!!! Oh lord, I thought I linked it correctly. It’s at NY& Company. Her is the direct link https://rstyle.me/cz-n/dmg3p8ciedx
Thank you so much for this comment!! You are so sweet to say those things. Happy Memorial Day!!
Oh-I fixer the link too!! Lol. Thank you so much for letting me know. We have a few rentals and one caught on fire last night and was a total loss, I’ve had very little sleep lol!!! Thanks again!!
Happy Memorial Day! I have been missing you and all of the girls the past couple of days. My son and his family arrived about 1:30 am Saturday morning. We are experiencing some very high temperatures here in Georgia right now so we decided to go to a movie and saw the new Aladdin movie which was very good so we all enjoyed it. On Sunday we went to the Georgia Aquarium and had a wonderful time. It was very busy though. I think a lot of other people are trying to find fun things to do that can be done in the air conditioning. This morning our Florida family left to drive back home. I worked 8-3 and am just now sitting down to catch up on my emails. I really liked the Maxi dress that you wore in Saturday’s post. I do love to wear maxi dresses in the summer and need to start looking for some new ones. Today’s blouse is sooo pretty! I really love the idea of wearing it with a white skirt. I am happy for you that you got to spend some time with precious Brooklyn. I too love the things that kids come out with 🙂 So very sorry that you lost one of your rentals to fire. I hope that no one got hurt. I hope you can get some rest and have a good week!
