Date Night…

spring-outfit-ideas ray-ban-mirrored-aviators jcrew-chevron-clutch jimmy-choo-typhoon-pumps pink-peonies-fashion-blog jimmy-choo-typhoon-heels mint-jcrew-blouseTop: J.Crew (on sale!) | Bottoms: Rag and Bone | Heels: Jimmy Choo (love this color too) | Clutch: J.Crew | Glasses: Ray-Ban | Earrings: J.Crew | Bracelets: Michele, David Yurman | Lips: YSL Rouge Volupte

My typical “date night” ensemble is always something along the lines of todays look (blouse, skinny jeans and fab heels). I wore this look over the weekend for a night on the town with the hubs to our new favorite mexican restaurant, Alamexo (If you live in SLC you seriously need to try it, I’m still dreaming of the guac). What’s your go-to date night look?

    What do you wear under silk shirts to keep them from being too sheer? I have yet to find a good tank top that doesn’t look bulky, or just out of place.

    I actually wore a super similar date night outfit recently! Silky mint button up, jeans, and sexy heels. I kinda like comfy, pseudo-casual versions of “dress up” clothes. I mean when you’re already married, who do you have to impress, right?! :)

  69. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this.

    Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome.
    Superb Blog!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
