date night... & a giveaway

{What I Wore: J.Crew blythe blouse // BlueBird bubble necklace // thrifted glitter heels (similar $29) // Arden B (p)leather shorts (love these!) }
Oh wait, you thought I would be wearing this for a night out with the boy!?
Pffff... no (he is laughing somewhere), this look is reseved for the ladies... who love me in all my
sock bun, red lip, glitter heels, leather shorts, statement necklace, quirky fashion bloggin' glory

What's the quickest way for me to look like I didn't just ride my bike home then ran out the door 15 minutes later... the simple equation of sock bun + red lips + statement necklace
(Although, maybe this time I should have swiped on mascara so it looked like I had eyes!)
The lovely Etsy shop owner behind the fabulous Blue Bird must have heard through a little birdie that you ladies, like me, love you some statement necklace goodness... and is gifting this exact bubble necklace to one of you lucky ducks!
(** if your email address isn't linked to your GFC account, please leave it in the comments, so I can contact you if you win)
Winner to be announced on Monday September 17th

What is your recipe for an easy date night look?

  6. I envy your sock bun. I've tried and it's just not happening. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong? Maybe my hair's not long enough, or has too many layers or something. Anyway, you look fabulous, and thanks for offering the giveaway!

  9. I would wear it with simple solid colored tees for a casual look or with just about all of my dresses with a killer pair of hells for something more dressy and dramatic.

  10. Jessica, a quick change after a run/bike ride for date night is the STORY OF MY LIFE! I feel like I'm always in a hurry/skipping a shower (shh!) to get ready. I'm definitely a fan of hair up (and I usually tease it a little, since it's already halfway there after excercising) and some blush to fully flush my cheeks! You look fab, I love those glitter heels! And these outfits are much better appreciated by girls instead of guys, you could totally wear jeans and a weird t-shirt on a date and your boyfriend would be like "Cool." Everyone is going crazy with statement necklaces and I want one! Pick me!!

    perfectly priya
