Outfit Inspiration: Summer Date Night

Looking for something light and summery to wear on your next date with someone special? I've paired a few pastels with metallics for a shimmery sweet look. What do you think?

Summer Date Night Outfit Inspiration | Bangles & Bungalows
If you're ready to flaunt those abs, then go for a crop top with a flared midi. I love this eyelet crop top from Topshop. If you want to be modest, wear the crop top over an untucked button down shirt and throw a blazer on top. To go for the Va Va Voom, add some killer metallic heels to counter the softness of the pastels. These Sophia Webster pumps make a great investment as the rainbow design allows them to match up with many other pieces in your wardrobe. Top off the look with layered necklaces like these from J.Crew. The brand is known for mixing pastels and metallics in its jewelry design, which works perfectly with this outfit. Finally, finish with metallic pink polish to go with your pumps. Chanel polish glides on easily every time for a beautiful glossy finish.

Have you heard? Gordmans has recently launched a new Misses Contemporary department. Find dressy and casual pieces to mix and match for your lifestyle. Kensie, Jessica Simpson and BB Dakota are just a few of the top brands you can shop for up to 60% off department store prices.

Gordmans sells both apparel and home d├ęcor with 90 stores in 19 states. I visited their location in St. Charles, MO, but there are 9 other stores to choose from. Visit their new Arnold location for one of their largest selections in contemporary and affordable style.

My favorite brand at Gordmans has to be Jack, a subsidiary of BB Dakota. Jack’s pieces are on trend with sleek silhouettes and bold colors. I absolutely love yellow and had to have this versatile tank, which can be dressed up or down. I styled it two ways – first by layering it with three pendant necklaces and second with a gold beaded turquoise scarf from Gordmans. Light and bright colors mix well, especially for summertime!

The best find of the trip had to be the studded teal belt. You must check out the accessories section for inexpensive treasures. I got this belt and a white braided belt for only $10 combined! My tank cost $20 and the scarf was $12. All in all, it was a great haul.
