Summer Date Night with Neiman Marcus


In the midst of working, traveling, and doing all those other things that post-grads do in the “real world,” I’ve found myself daydreaming about that perfect vacation date night. It’s summer, so a girl can dream, right? I foresee sunset on the beach, Italian cuisine (per favore), the beau table-side, and of course (drum roll, please) … the right dress. Oh yes, we all know how it feels to be beautified up in that one frock that makes you glow from head to toe. And who doesn’t love to feel like a princess on a romantic date out on a beautiful beach, somewhere? I’ve teamed up with StyleList and Neiman Marcus to bring this daydream to life, check out the StyleList post here and keep on reading…

So let’s talk details in this oh-so-dreamy date night vision. If I had to pinpoint where this romantic fantasy would take place, it would be on favorite Cannes Boardwalk en France. Oui oui, j’adore a little Mediterranean à la plage. As I mentioned before, it’s not a date without a little Italian cuisine (definitely my favorite date night go-to), some good French wine and some savory linguini. How about a little lemon custard for dinner? If you follow me on instagram, you know I have quite the sweet tooth.

So now it’s time to beautify: How about those stillettos? Grab yourself a pair of high heels and go ahead and elongate those legs. We’re on vacation over here in this daydream fantasy, so why not show off a little skin? This perfected dress by Nha Khanh is my first choice when fashioning a date night stunner, especially with its high-low detailing and show-stopping color. Oh yes, it’s the perfect way to show off those legs while still keeping it cute and classy in the back.

Then there are those accessories—which are always my favorite outfit accent. I like to stick to a minimal look to really emphasize the classic features of a stunner dress like this one. As in, accessorize with those neutral and gold Kendra Scott jewels and gems that accent all looks flawlessly. The perfect dress, the right accessories, a handsome boy, and a relaxing ambiance… au revoir, I’m ready to go! Be sure to check out the rest from Nha Khanh and Neiman Marcus, and happy daydreaming, dahlings!
