What DO I Wear?!?! A Casual Summer Night Out

“Fashion is anything which is you and reflects your personality, and if you are comfortable with what you wearing, you’ll look trendy and fashionable for sure.” ~ Yami Gautam

Dressing Up 

I LOVE getting dressed up and I admit I always tend towards the dressier side of things wherever I go. I much prefer being over dressed then under any day of the week. Just something my madre drilled into me and has stuck with me ever since.


That said I am not suggesting wearing a ball gown to a barbecue, but when going out especially at night, I love throwing on a dress and if it is Summer I LOVE rocking a skirt and crop top especially if I am going to a bar.


The skirt

I have been on a Lulu’s kick and they have the perfect clothes for summer. They offer a varied selection of two piece sets which I have become obsessed with. It feels like you are getting multiple outfits out of one. And when traveling it gives you more options. Technically this skirt came with a tie front crop top. Unfortunately, it was just a little to plunging for my tastes, so I nixed the top and just stuck with the skirt which I adore.


My only complaint with Lulu’s is that they make their clothing for six feet tall giants. Everything I have bought from them I have had to have hemmed and this skirt was no different. I don’t know how the seamstress did it, because instead of a zipper this has an elastic waste and it wraps around attaching to the band. But she worked her magic, and it looked and fit amazingly!


The shirt

Because of the above mentioned possible wardrobe malfunctions (even if it is a night out on the town) I decided to  pair my burgundy crop top with this. Originally I had thought to stick with white, but because of the flowers in the skirt, it pulled the colors together perfectly!

It was a little more skin then I was use to showing, but hey I was in California and we were going.


The look

Because of the pattern of the skirt, I let it do the talking keeping accessories to my staples, donning a simple blush SeaMilligan Design Tassel necklace, lace earrings, and my Lighthouse Studio Design cuff.


I did pair my comfy blush stilletoes for a dressier look, but I easily could have done a pair of flip-flops for a more beachy vibe if I had wanted too.


I brought a denim jacket just in case I needed it, but as luck would have it, the night stayed warm, and I could rock my summer look all night.


What is your going out outfit? DO you prefer to be under or over dressed?
