Denim and Lace

Today’s post is the result of an impromptu photo shoot my husband and I did on our way to dinner last night (Yes, my husband is my photographer!  How handy is that!?)    This totally unplanned shoot currently has me feeling totally exposed without my trusty sunglasses (yikes!)….but it is a good thing to step outside of your comfort zone once in awhile.  Right?  So after deciding to do the shoot sans sunnies we stopped at a random alley and took some pics of my summer date night look.

We live in a rather relaxed beach community and although there are pockets of swanky restaurants and bars popping up, the overall vibe is what you would expect from a popular surf town – rather chill.  So for my look I wanted to keep the easy going vibe of my laid-back surroundings but step it up a notch with some killer heels.  I don’t mind being one of the few women in stilettos walking around, but I  don’t want to stick out like a sore thumb either, so keeping an overall relaxed vibe was my top priority when putting my look together.   I kept my outfit rather simple and airy for the hot summer night with a beautiful silk camisole and ripped denim and since I really wanted to look totally effortless I tied a jean jacket around my hips.  Denim just has a way of making an outfit feel very uncomplicated and carefree.

    You look stunning! I agree, jeans are easy to dress up, but not look too overdone for a casual event.
