Outfit of the Day: My 30 Minute Date Night Look

Hey guys! I had a mini date night/family night out on Thursday with only about 30 minutes to get ready.  I was so focused on getting tasks done that I didn't leave myself enough time to get glammed up for my honey so I had to put together something quick!  I threw on this pink dress I had from a little boutique in OC and paired it with my jewelry store's newest arrivals including this silver statement necklace, hematite bracelet and simple stud earrings to dress up my summer dress.  

The great thing about summer time is you can wear a cute little bright colored dress, throw on some heels, accessorize and your ready to go!  Perfect for me, especially as a mom that doesn't always have time to do the full on hair and makeup!  I threw my hair into a little sleek bun, added a dramatic lip color and BAM.....i'm date night ready!  Here were my full outfit details...
