Fashion Over 40: Early Fall Date Night Outfit
Welcome back to 26 Days of Fall Outfits! Last weekend we went out for an impromptu date night with friends. It was a last minute plan so I didn’t have much time to think about what I was going to wear. While the components of this outfit are old, it took me a while to put it together. I was trying to make a new tunic work, but in the end, I went with what was familiar and comfortable, and I’m so glad I did. Sometimes it’s fun to take a fashion risk, and other times, it’s nice to wear something familiar so you can be sure to be comfortable and feel good about yourself.
I picked up this tie-dye top in a local shop a few years back. I’ve worn it a couple of times when I want something a little bit edgy and unexpected. The back is open, so I always wear it over a black tank top. I love this detailing though.
I paired the top with my dark wash skinny jeans and black wedge knee-high boots. It was a warm night in September, so I like the combination of a sleeveless top with boots.
I wore these bold Silpada Half Moon Earrings and went without a necklace. In the past, I’ve worn a long pendant, but I felt like the earrings were enough. In looking back at these pictures, though, I feel that it could have used something. Oh well! To that, I just added a stack of silver bangles on one wrist and my watch on the other. I still can’t find my FitBit. So sad.
I carried my Stella & Dot Waverly Crossbody. The grey sueded perf and softly distressed metallic vegan leather seemed to work well with this the top. My hair wasn’t cooperating so I pulled it back and secured it with bobby pins. I’m getting it cut and colored today. YAY!
