I love a good date night!
Taking time to reconnect with my husband over good food and drink allows us to slow things down, regroup and recharge. The daily grind of work - family - repeat is fantastic, but sometimes you need to shake it up. We talk about everything on our date nights. Recently, we've discussed setting business goals, planning vacations and overall catching up on where we are emotionally and mentally in the moment.
We recently grabbed a delicious meal at FARMSHOP in Larkspur Landing's Country Mart. They boast of "innovative eclectic plates & creative cocktails delivered in rustic-chic quarters" See photo of me amongst the small vineyard in the back of the restaurant.
How I Wore It - I am not usually one for ruffles or super frilly outfits. In my opinion, a great pair of trousers, a hybrid cowboy low boot and a cool piece of jewelry are a solid foundation for one of my jackets. This time, I chose the Structured Blazer. It's got a really cool tuxedo vibe made from a textured cream fabric that reminds me of concrete. The high contrast black grosgrain lapel dresses up any outfit - even jeans. I love this super lean, structured shoulder jacket. You can flip the pocket flap out or in, depending upon the proportion you want.
Masculine tailoring coupled with a streamlined silhouette made just for a woman is a winning combo. It's my go-to for date night, the office, ladies night out or just about anywhere you want a little tailoring to compliment your outfit. Wear it with a maxi skirt, a ripped boyfriend jean, a dark skinny jean, a trouser, a wide leg pant or a ruffled dress. It works perfectly every time.
Style the Structured Blazer with any of these pieces for the perfect night out:
