To many people casual equals jeans. Not so. Add cool boots and a chic jacket and anything can elevate from casual to stylish.
Finding the balance with a skirt is the key to the laid-back casual outfit. A cool color combo brings the skirt down to kick around status. Pull on a classic motorcycle boot and accessorize with a fierce snakeskin bag and you can take on any playdate, farmer’s market or fall festival in stride.
The vaunted date night – whether you have kids or not, finding time for the two of you to get some social time a deux is essential. And exhausting. I used to plan days ahead the special outfits I would wear for DATE NIGHT. And inevitably after a long week at work, a wrangling the munchkin, and the coordination of three armies just to get us out the door for said date night, and I was happy if I still had my contacts in.
The secret – throw on a kicky dress, tights (you can cross off the “did I shave??!!” question) and cool boots. And date night will be just what it should be.
