Find the perfect dinner date outfit... read more
There’s nothing better than having an excuse to dress up and make a little bit more effort so a dinner date with the girls always seems like the perfect opportunity. For mums it also gives you an excuse to step away from the casual wear and put your glad rags on. Excited for a catch up with the gang the lovely Jess from Mummy Of Boy Girl Twins knew exactly what she’d be wearing so check out her perfect outfit below…
These days, when the ladies and I try to organise a night out, it takes a lot of effort and meticulous planning! We’re all incredibly busy women and so it is hard work to get everyone together on an evening out. Many, many Whats App messages exchanged later and we usually finally have a date in the calendar and a table booked in town at one of our favourite restaurants!
I absolutely love going out with my friends in the evening and catching up with them. During the weekdays it is hard to chat to them properly on the school run (or when dropping/picking children up for parties at weekends) and so getting together over cocktails, wine and delicious food is ideal. We usually mostly talk about the children – but at least we can usually have a giggle and a gossip too!
I am a busy Mum of young 5-year-old twins and so I don’t often get to wear heels much these days. Thus when there is a chance to get dressed up a little and feel smarter I jump at the chance! When I go for dinner with the girls I like to wear something that I feel smart in, but that also feels casual too. I am such a big fan of the classics and typically always go for the colours navy, white, blue and grey because they go with everything and it’s much easier to get dressed when you have items in your wardrobe that complement each other.
I absolutely adore these blue-cropped slim leg jeans. Although they are really on-trend for this season (cropped jeans are all over the high street right now) they are really comfortable too. What I love the most about them though is that they will go with anything in my wardrobe; they’d also be perfect with trainers too for the school run in the morning.
This long sleeved dotted white jumper is lovely and light for these slightly warmer autumn days, meaning I don’t feel too hot or stuffy in it. The dotty detail just gives it a nice finish and extra texture to a plain knit.
The double-breasted moleskin coat, however, is my favourite piece of this whole look. I wouldn’t normally go for the colour teal when shopping for autumn/winter coats and yet I love this one. This coat goes perfectly with jeans or black trousers, as well as tan or pink accessories. Again, I could absolutely wear this with a more casual outfit on weekends with the family such as a baggy sweater and ankle boots.
Now I’m off out to enjoy my evening!
We hope you had a lovely evening Jess! Do you like to dress up for a dinner date with friends? Let us know below or on Twitter @LauraAshleyUK
