Date Night OOTD & Makeup

Date Night OOTD & Makeup

Happy Wednesday, it’s the middle of another week already! I was in two minds about whether I should (is should the right word?) share this post or not but I’ve decided to. I’ve always been open about the fact that I haven’t been in a relationship before or had a lot to do with the opposite sex but a few weeks ago I went out to dinner on a date. To cut a long story short, I never heard from the guy after that. Despite this, I really enjoyed putting this look together and I wanted to share what I wore in case you’re in a similar situation or just need some inspiration.

The Outfit

Date Night Outfit1. Cotton On Archy Crop Pullover

I knew it might get a bit chilly so I wanted to make sure I was warm whilst still looking nice. I went for a casual/semi-formal look and I rolled up the sleeves of this pullover to make things a bit more cute and playful. The colour broke up the black of the rest of the outfit.

2. Cotton On 3/4 Sleeve Boat Neck

Underneath the pullover I opted for a simple black 3/4 sleeve top. These sorts of tops are so versatile and perfect for layering.

3. Dannii For Target Coated Leggings

I absolutely love these leggings for their comfort and the way they look! These are more glam than your usual pair of plain black leggings and the coated animal print also adds a bit of personality and playfulness.

4. Forever New Scarlett Quilted Bag

I picked up this bag when I was in Auckland with dates and evenings out in mind. It is the perfect size and can hold a decent amount. For example, on my date I had my phone, keys, cards, ID, various other bits and there was still room to spare.

5. Diana Ferrari Onix Suede Boots

It was a chilly evening and I’m glad I opted for boots. These look so cute with the leggings tucked in and I do love the sound of the slight heel against the pavement as I walk.

*Both shades were applied all over the lid before going in with Max Factor’s Excess Shimmer in Copper for added sparkle!

    I love this entire look from the outfit to the make-up! IT’s absolutely stunning. 🙂
    That guy missed out severely by not getting to know a wonderful woman like you better. A good thing to come from it though is a beautiful outfit and a gorgeous make-up look. You will find your prince, Chanelle. 🙂 xxx

    You probably scared him off with how cute you looked! 😉
    Your outfit is the perfect mix of comfort and style!
    I don’t have a special date night look… maybe I should make more of an effort – we’ve been together too long, I think! 😛

      Aww that’s such a cute thing to say! Who knows, maybe it’s true 😛 I really did enjoy wearing this outfit and I’ve been wearing the pullover and leggings a lot together and on their own. I bet you always look beautiful on date nights, it seems to have done the trick 😉 how long have you been together if you don’t mind me asking?
