This weeks Blonde vs. Brunette challenge will involve a budget; something we both know very well. We scoured the internet to find a complete look for date night that was under $50.
Kristin – THE BLONDE
Racer Back Maxi in Khaki – $15.27 at ASOS
My fiancé and me are definitely laid back relax kind of people and our date nights are no different. So, I would keep it really comfortable, simple, and casual on a standard date night. That’s why this tank, maxi dress in khaki is perfect. I think ASOS is the best place to shop for well made, interesting, inexpensive dresses. What’s best about ASOS is they show you a video with a model wearing all their shoes and clothes. This gives you the ability to see how it would actually hang or fit.
Cork wedge platform sandal in bubblegum pink – $29.99 at Target
I love a good wedge. They are easy to wear for a long period of time and they would be a perfect shoe for this summer dress. I usually check out a few websites for reasonably priced shoes: DSW, Target, and ASOS. I found these on Target’s website. I love the vintage feel of the wedge and I think the pink would be fun and unexpected. You could also go with the same shoe in the black wedge.
Arrow Head Necklace – $3.80 at Forever 21
I love gold with khakis and browns; so, I would definitely choose gold. I checked out Forever 21’s website first since they have such a wide selection as an inexpensive price. And, I went with something casual and simple to keep the look cohesive. This long necklace with the deco arrow head design would be perfect.
Nostalgic Lipstick – $1.00 at ELF
(Color is actually a little more nude than picture sample)
I would go loose waves with this look. And I would pair a nude lip and heavy eyes with this look. When you think you’ve got enough mascara on, let your lashes dry, curl them again, and put more mascara on!!
TOTAL: $15.27 + $29.99 + $3.80 + $1.00 = $50.06
So, I went over by 6 cents… who cares.
Alex – THE BRUNETTE
Sparkle & Fade Knit Surplice Romper $29.99 – UrbanOutfitters.com
I just realized how big a fan of rompers I am. I don’t think this is particularly a look guys love, but I think they’re too cute so I always bank on my sexy confidence outweighing the man repelling abilities of a romper. I love black, so I chose this sleek black v-neck romper. Perfect for a casual yet extra-somethin’ kind of date night.
Qupid Gipsy-01 Strappy Ankle Cuff Open Toe Wedge $22.30 – Urbanog.com
This wedges are killing me right now I just might order them. Urbanog.com is a great website for a last minute, inexpensive purchase. They have a lot of trendy shoe styles for low prices. I am not a fan of the thick soled wedge; the thin sole under the ball of your feet gives a womanly feel to me. As much as I love the Spice Girls and their platforms, I just cannot bring myself to bring back the platform wedge.
Ok so this cute little outfit is a few bucks over $50 limit; skip that iced coffee from Starbucks this week and put it toward your “Under $50 Date Night Outfit”!
