What to Wear: Date Night

I’ve never been a heels and skirts kind of lady, so flats and trousers that offer ease of movement appeal much more to me.  Here’s the kind of get-up I’d wear on date night to a fancy pantalones dinner (La Marea, Locanda Verde, Per Se–significant other, are you reading this?).  Stretchy waistbands, don’t hurt, either! Girl’s gotta eat.

1. J.Crew Minnie Trousers | 2. Marni x H & M Earrings | 3. Anthropologie Tuxedo Jacket |  4. Sam Edelman Patent Flat Slingbacks | 5. Zara Bag with Relief Motif | 6. Steven Alan Zip-Back Top* | 7. Soo Ihn Kim Jinx Cuff

*This is kind of crazy over-priced. You can purchase a really similar shirt for $10.50 at Forever 21

Fall Fashion Shopping Guide, Part II

Now that I’ve shown you my fall fashion wishlist, here are some easy ways to style them.

My mantra for workday attire:

  • Comfortable (can I eat a big lunch without the need to suck in?)
  • Easy to walk in (I’m a klutz.  Flats, please.)
  • Fun
  • Professional

DVF Harper Ostrich Bon Bon Bag |  Gap Mini Faux Snakeskin Belt | J.Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt | Madewell Perfect Chambray Shirt |  Virginia Johnson Shawl | Sigerson Morrison x Madewell Flats

Some get-ups to get you through the week.

I like to keep things simple for first dates.  Jeans are always a safe bet.  No need to be a Man Repeller too early in the game.

Sometimes the dress code for events can be fuzzy.  This is a nice way to be casual, but still pulled together.

A flexible waistline is key whenever I go out to dinner.  Is that bad? Ha ha.  Watch out pork chops, here I come!

The greatest old and new bands constantly pass through NYC.  Here’s what I’d wear for a non-stop night of venue-hopping and music industry schmoozing.

Maybe you’ve hit the jackpot and unearthed a guy who woos you with dinner at Daniel.

Maybe your brain’s a little fuzzy from the night before and your growling stomach commands the plans. Maybe after an epic brunch, you’ll loaf around the city with friends.  After all, nothing beats the crisp autumn air in New York.

Steven Alan Betty Tank | J.Crew Matchstick Jeans | Aubin & Wills Calderman Sweater | Madewell Yuketen Chukka Boots | Asos Yellow Sorrell Bag | Virginia Johnson Shawl

Something for a super-cool event downtown.
