Now my husband and I will be going out for Valentine's Day this year since it falls on a weekend, but there have been many years when the big day fell on a weeknight and we celebrated at home. Whenever we have a date night at home, I usually do my hair and make up for him, and wear something cozy, yet sexy.
For this challenge, I chose to wear a romantic floral kimono that was actually a gift from my husband. I paired it with a floral camisole that is so perfectly matched one would think it came with the kimono, but it did not. I wore soft, cozy joggers from Amazon, and added jewelry and heels for more pizzazz.
Shelbee on the Edge - This date night at home theme was announced just before my scheduled date night at home for our 11th wedding anniversary. While I had plans to dress up a bit for our special night, my hormones decided otherwise and slammed me with debilitating cramps all night long. And so I ended up spending our date night in my coziest things curled up on the couch! But if I had been able to dress up, I would have worn this comfy black velvet pant suit that is a recent thrift shop acquisition. I love the elastic waistband and wide legs of the pants making them feel more like pajamas than dress pants. I layered a cowl neck sweater under the velvet cardigan and slipped my cold tootsies into some furry line rose gold mules. A simple tassel necklace and earrings in gold and rose gold completed my look. All set for date night 2021-style!
Nancy’s Fashion Style - “For A date night at home, I let Gerben choose his favorite outfit on me!
Can it be anymore boring? In my eyes, I don't even like black and white together. And although he said that I have a lot of beautiful dresses, he likes a black pencil skirt, a simple white blouse and classic pumps. A few simple golden jewelry and, and that is what he likes the most of course.....my black stockings! Oh men.....”
High Latitude Style - “Date night means dancing for us. Then a sleek fit-and-flare dress is a Must. This dress has too much cleavage for my taste, but works well for layering with a halftee underneath. In Interior Alaska, date night can also be early in the morning. In winter, it’s dark until late in the morning (only 3.5 h of daylight at winter solstice. In summer, there is daylight 24/7 for 84 days. More on Alaska lifestyle on the blog.
The Style Splash - "We don't usually go out for Valentine's Day - and we certainly won't be this year - but I welcome the excuse to wear red! The rainbow striped sweater with the word "amour" on it (French for love, of course) seems very appropriate."
