So, you guys already read up on ‘Date Night: Part I‘…& well, didn’t want to leave ya hanging so here’s Part II:
Ok, these pictures were shot right after I got ready ( AKA the 20 minute, pull your ass together ASAP for a hot date night kind of ready ). We’ll talk more on that in a sec though.
Michael & I have been walking to nearby restaurants instead of driving because it’s fun, flirty, & sort of romantic don’t ya think? And pre-date night photo opps are always fun ( so casual/normal, lol! )…especially because we were able to steal a few pictures with our babies, Boone & Pixy.
Anyway, here’s the finishing touch details on my date night look:
The hair. After I took out my low Sleep Bun, I added Wella’s paraben-free hair oil ( DO NOT BE AFRAID OF OIL ON YOUR HAIR, I SWEAR- IT’S A GAME CHANGER!! ) to the tips of my locks & a tinnnnnny bit of hairspray to the bottom.
I’m a fan of Wella’s hairspray because it still makes my hair look bouncy & gives it a little shiny-shine. The hairspray helps to hold the low Sleep Bun ‘curl.’ Also, make sure when you’re adding the hairspray you don’t go above your ears, I find the lower on my head the better, extra large ‘curls’ appear.
If you even want to call it a ‘curl?’ I feel like it’s more of a big, soft wave. Basically instead of doing it like super straight you get that effortless look. Does this make sense?
Obviously we already talked about my favorite lipsticks & heels, but in these shots I’m wearing a very specific lipstick color that was recommended to me by my really good friend, Kylie Jenner.
But really Kylie did a post somewhere that says she swears by this lipstick & this lipliner ( + these ones are flattering shades for teeth ) & I’ve been rocking it out A LOT. It’s the same color as my lips so I do an overline to make them extra kissable for Michael ( nudge, nudge babe ). Next time if I want to look like Kylie, I’ll overline my entire face ( her lips are HUGE! ).
The blue dress was found at Van De Vort & you can also find it here. It’s super flow-y & Marilyn Monroe ( but if she lived in the 80’s ). Kind of obsessed with how it blows in the wind— so perfect for a casual walk to the restaurant. Nude shoes are Ryan Haber mules.
One thing I love about these pics is I’m dressed up & Michael’s dressed down. I loveeeeee when he dresses down, I like the contrast to my flowy dress. Am I weird?
So! That’s a date night look from start to finish— what’s your favorite 20 minute way to prep for a hot, steamy night out?
