#OOTN – Floral Tank and a Sheeny Skirt for Date Night

23rd June

Floral tank date night outfit

There’s little that gives me more sartorial satisfaction than putting together beloved pieces for a brand new (to me!) look. This skirt is a long-time favorite, and the floral tank is a relatively newer fave. Since both have a similar sheeny quality, I decided to pair them for date night with my sweetheart.

Layered Necklaces

Not only did I have fun combining clothing pieces, but I had wanted to try my hand at layering necklaces. Although I love the look of combining necklaces of different lengths, I recently noticed the way someone was layering all long necklaces. It was such a cool look that I wanted to try it. And so I chose three of my favorites: a simple gold lariat, a gold chain with dark red gems, and a third gold chain with faux diamonds from Italy.

A Jacket Just In Case

Mark and I went “over the hill” on this day from Santa Cruz, California. We entered the heat wave zone between San Jose and Los Gatos. I brought along a little jacket for air-conditioned buildings. The jacket also happens to have a sheen, by the way.  Since it was scorching hot (in the high 80s), the jacket was mostly along for the ride.

The Other Pieces

You may remember this velvety tank from THIS POST in early spring. The skirt has earned long-timer status in my closet, not because it is by an exclusive brand. But it has this really wonderful shimmer because of its construction. A filmy black outer layer tops a lustrous white under layer with lace at the bottom.

It is a little demanding, however. I cannot wear just anything underneath unless I want to expose my lingerie. The solution? I wear underneath it, a nude half-slip over a pair of nude (almost nonexistent control) Spanx. It might sound like a lot of layers. But it was actually very comfortable.

This evening we went to our favorite restaurant, Pinxto Pote. Dressing up for dinner always makes me feel like I’m on vacation, even when we’re just staying in our California home.

Hope you liked this outfit with hints of luster.
