A Fiancé-Approved Spring Date Look

A Fiancé-Approved Spring Date Look

There’s just something about knowing you look better than your date’s pasta dish..

Maybe I’m just speaking for myself, but sometimes I wonder, “does he love food more than me?” 😂 Okay, that’s totally a joke because I know my fiancé loves me!  I love knowing that he’s into my outfit and feels good showing me off if we walk past a crowded sports bar.  While I certainly keep a plethora of pieces in my closet that are not his favorite (but I love them anyways so too bad), I also have a section that I know is fiancé-approved for date night!

A couple days before Valentine’s, I went frantically searching for something new to wear, thinking I needed to dress up for our date night.  However, when B saw this criss-cross top, he begged me to come home with it because he thought it looked so nice.  I’m glad I listened to his advice, because I’ve probably worn it a trillion times since February, and don’t plan on stopping any time soon (and he still compliments me every time I wear it).  Back before B was my fiancé, there was a “boyfriend-approved” date look that I put together.  I like to think of this new outfit as the upgrade!

Skorts over skirts – always.

The skort is my lifesaver. But for real – because I have such long legs, skirts can tend to cause some problems for me. I don’t exactly love sharing my bum with the whole world, but I also don’t want to wear shorts underneath my skirts all the time, so skorts are my BFF! This particular gingham one makes me feel like a million bucks, with the frilly wrap style and darling floral print. It comes with a matching crop top, and is also available in the cheeriest yellow and polka dot black!

I love layering on date nights. You never know when you’ll end up on a patio, or the coolest section of the movie theater, so I try to bring a cardigan with me at all times. Another important factor are the shoes. I love heels, but typically they kill my feet, so if I plan on wearing a pair, I double and triple check the comfort factor prior to leaving the house. I don’t want to make my date give me piggy-back rides everywhere because my feet are sore!

If you’re in a relationship, what’s your SO’s favorite outfit on you?

    Aww I love that your fiancé is so in tune with your outfits! That criss cross top is a good one! Nothing crazy but it is flattering! I love the idea of wearing a skort too. I don’t like showing my bum either hence why I always avoid mini skirts haha! This is for sure a cute date night outfit!

    How could anyone not love this look! And I totally agree with you — skorts over skirts for sure. It’s the best of both worlds.

    Oh wow, I didn’t even realize they were skorts at first, I thought it was a skirt! I love skorts too – super comfy and you’re definitely not going to have any incidents if you bend over the wrong way haha!

    Hahaha I totally understand how you feel!! My boyfriend is partial to certain things in my closet and that’s what I try and bring out for date night .. every other day, I dress for myself and other girls! Haha .. I feel like that’s what most of us do
