Good morning, and happy Friday to everyone! We arrived at my parents’ house late last night after what seemed like an endless drive through West Virginia, a slice of Maryland, and finally my home state of Virginia. We stopped for an hour or so to grab dinner and ice cream in Lexington, VA, a beautiful little historical town about an hour from our final destination, and that was a nice reprieve, but we were all very glad to get here.
Today I have a spring/summer date night outfit I want to share with y’all. (See that? My Virginia is already coming out!)
I loved this black off-the-shoulder top when I found it in Nordstrom on my visit to Nashville back in February, and I finally got to wear it when we were in Savannah. Now that it seems to be warming up for good, I’m excited to get some more opportunities to wear it. I really love the texture detail.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small. It was a tad snug through the chest, but I wouldn’t want it any bigger anywhere else, so I kept the small.
This top sold out at Nordstrom, but I found it at Revolve. This isn’t a site you see me mention often, but a lot of fashion bloggers I follow shop there, so as far as I know, they have good customer service. It says they have free shipping and free returns and a 30 day price match guarantee.
I often pair my black tops with white jeans in the summertime, so I wanted to try something a little bit different. I decided my pink skinny jeans with the released hem would be the perfect pairing. Black and pink is such a feminine combination and perfect for spring and summer.
These jeans are 30% off right now at the Lord & Taylor Friends & Family Sale, and Nordstrom is price-matching, but they don’t have as many sizes available. I try to shop at Nordstrom when I can, so I can get my rewards points, but sometimes you just have to go elsewhere.
They are also included in the Shopbop Event of the Season sale, but you can only get 20-25% off there. Still, if you’re trying to get to your $500 minimum for the 25% off, it might be worth getting them there.
Since the top is on the dressier side, I went with a strappy nude sandal instead of my typical wedges to offset the casual released-hem denim.
I often don’t wear a necklace with off-the-shoulder tops, but when I tried this top on in the dressing room in Nashville, I happened to be wearing my monogram necklace, and I thought it looked amazing with this top! I don’t know that I would have thought about it otherwise, so I’m really glad it worked out.
I kept the rest of my jewelry simple with gold hoops and a stack of thin gold bangles. Those are so old, I don’t even know where I got them, but I often wear them when I want to dress up an outfit but not compete with anything else I’ve got going on.
I love how this outfit came together. Sometimes I can’t tell if I’m going to like something or not until I see our pictures, and I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this one, but I think it works.
And it’s Friday, so time for my #FashionFriday linkup! If you have a fashion blog, feel free to link up a recent fashion-related post, and if you’re looking for an extra dose of spring style inspiration, you’ll surely find it here!
