Date-Night Outfit Inspiration

February, the month of going on [awkward] dates, is swiftly approaching. In my opinion, the most stressful part of Valentine’s Day isn’t so much finding the date as it is finding the perfect outfit to wear—a look that is feminine, but not too hoochie/sexy/etc (everyone should be fawning over your gorgeous face not gawking at your barely-there dress). To make the outfit selection process a little bit easier for you girls, I put together a couple of date-night looks. Whether you’re going out with your oh-so-cute beau or a group of your besties, these two looks will be sure to get compliments:



There’s something so adorable and whimsical about an A-line polka dot dress. The clutch, earrings and bangles add pops of color and shine to this otherwise monochromatic look. For the shoes, I decided to go with simple nude pumps to keep the look grounded.



 This second outfit is perfect if you’re headed somewhere nice, but don’t want to look too bare (after all, it’s still below 40 degrees in most places). A beaded top and bright pink clutch add a feminine touch to this tomboy-chic “suit” look.

What are you planning to wear on Valentine’s Day? Post a picture of your date night outfit on Instagram and include #NordstromBP, so I can check it out! You may also end up on an in-store video wall or somewhere else in the BP. universe. (:

    Wow, do you look gorgeous in everything? Is that your number one date night outfit or did it just photograph well?

    Thanks Liz and JuJu! And Liz, I don’t really have “favorite” outfits. Haha, I love all my clothes equally (;
