Budget-Friendly Date Night Look

Happy Friday Eve, my friends! This week has been a bit of a doozie, and I’m definitely ready for the weekend. Today I’m teaming up with Walmart to bring you a budget-friendly date night look featuring one of fall’s biggest trends — animal print.

I set out to put together the type of look I like to wear when going out with my husband or girlfriends on the weekends. You know me, I’m all about pairing a fun top with jeans, and when it’s cool enough, I like to top it off with a fitted jacket.

This leopard print cami creates the perfect focal point for this outfit. It does require a strapless bra, or you can just leave your jacket on and not worry about that (which is what I do.)

This open front blazer is a great little completer piece that can take you from the office to dinner. It’s lightweight enough to keep on when you’re inside, and it has a really flattering shape to it.

I also like that ruching detail on the 3/4 length sleeves. For size reference, I’m wearing the small in both the cami and blazer.

These black skinny jeans are by Levi’s, and I wanted the 8 Short so they would be ankle length, but only the 8 Regular was available, so I actually cut them off to make them the right length.

My photographer, Alison, even showed me how to roughen up the edge a bit so they didn’t look just cut clean off. With raw hem jeans being on trend right now, this is a great little “tailoring” hack if you don’t want to spend the money or time on alternations.

I’m always a sucker for an open toe bootie this time of year, and this vegan suede pair is a nice alternative to pricier leather and suede booties.

With a 3″ stacked heel, these shoes are very comfortable to walk in, and the top of the shaft is soft against my leg.

I accessorized with a Lucky Brand bracelet and earrings, and I carried this O-ring clutch. This clutch also comes in snake print, by the way!

This outfit is perfect for a night out on the town, and each piece is easily mix and matchable with other components in your wardrobe.

If you’re looking for stylish and budget-friendly clothing options, don’t forget to check out Walmart. You just might be surprised by how much they have to offer, and they also have free 2-day shipping on eligible orders over $35.
