AJ Wears :: A top and jeans

Some nights, the classic top and jeans combo is the most appropriate. I donned this get up to Local Lime for my monthly book club, which usually consists a lot more of gabbing and eating than talking about any books. Let's face it, we read more tweets than we do literature so that's what we're going to talk about.

As you read this, I'm on a plane and LA bound! I'm hoping I'll have time to blog a few trip outfits for you next week and put together a packing guide. Don't forget about Friday Favorites tomorrow - that's still going up and I'm looking forward to sharing my remix for the week with you.

If you want to follow along with my California adventure, I'm sure I'll be overloading Instagram with vacation brags (@ajwearsclothes).

What I Wore :: Date Night

We love a good date night around here. BB and I enjoy Friday night dinners together almost every week - usually at our favorite sushi joint, Sushi Cafe. Last week's only deviation from the plan was that we joined a few friends.

And for us, date night means getting dressed up and going out. I love shorts for a summer date night look. It's cool enough to enjoy a little patio time and a cute shorts/top combo can be dressy without being fussy.

My shorts/top combo came from a particularly awesome trip to New York and Company. I was so surprised at how many great prints and pieces they have right now! And I love that their sizing is so generous, a nice change from Forever 21 where I have to buy an extra large sometimes. These shorts fit so nicely and I love the print on this scarf inspired top.

Also, two thumbs up for this hairstyle. I first learned it from Love Maegan's blog and it's pretty much my go-to for dressing up. I call it my wedding hair - you can start with basically any hair and end up with a pretty updo that's perfect for weddings and parties.

What's your go-to outfit for date night?
