what I’m wearing: pastel blue off the shoulder top, textured culottes, yellow mini boxy bag, powder blue block heels
Now that the evenings are long and balmy, all I want to do is spend them outside somewhere with a beautiful view and a cocktail in hand. And I did just that last week on a midweek date night in the pretty town of Lymington with its cobbled streets, rows of little houses and beautiful quayside. Our first venue for the night, tucked away at the back of a speakeasy-style wine bar, had rustic aesthetics with quaint touches here and there. A dreamy White Lady cocktail later (with garnish the colour of my bag – I like to match my accessories!) I found myself sitting in the most romantic restaurant with a warm glow of candles, panoramic views looking out onto the marina and an air of understated luxe. It was a wonderful evening, and I even managed to match the colour of my blouse to the sky…
Floaty and off the shoulder, this little blue top reveals just a hint of sunkissed skin for an elegant summer date night look. Paired with long textured culottes, some grey-blue block heel sandals and, of course, the yellow bag (what else?!), this outfit epitomises summer evening chic to me. To finish, a slick of red matte lipstick (in ‘Striking’) creates that perfect clash of colour to really bring out the blue tones in the blouse, just like in the twilight sky.
What’s your ideal summer date night look?
