Date Night

Last night my boyfriend and I took it upon ourselves to strike out of our comfort zones and try a new restaurant in Los Angeles. Sometimes it's hard for us to break away from our favorites (Umami Burger, anyone?), but when we do, it's always a good thing.

After dinner at House Cafe, we went down the street to Milk on Beverly for dessert.

Banana Republic shirt, vintage woven tie, Seven For All Mankind jeans, Clark's desert boots, Timex watch

Milk's Brownie Sundae

In the spirit of trying new things, my outfit consisted of a few recent purchases as well as pieces I hadn't gotten the chance to wear before.
Urban Outfitters blazer, Forever 21 lace top, J Brand boyfriend jeans, J. Crew satin peeptoe pumps, J. Crew cocktail ring, David Yurman Ring, Madewell bracelet

I love putting looks together that create a unified concept. I think last night's was casual romance, with the emphasis on casual. I used the the relaxed fit of the boyfriend jeans and the sharp lines of the boy-blazer to mitigate the sweetness of the satin shoes, lace top, and girly makeup/hair. 

J. Crew earrings
I love the way this Madewell bracelet juxtaposes rough and pretty with its chains and crystals.

Proof of a successful night:


  1. loooooooove this post :)
    you're outfit is so cute!!

  2. Personally, I think the emphasis was on romantic, rather than casual.

    But maybe that's just me.


    Keep it up, love

  3. That Caramel Apple was only two dollars?? We are going to this place again.

    Love the pictures, love the new shirt, love you.
