Summer Date Night Outfit – Ruffle Bell Sleeve Blouse
Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what to wear for a Summer date night outfit. In Dallas, we have some hot Summer nights but when you dine inside a restaurant, they are blaring the AC. I am usually freezing inside restaurants because of this and I’m not a cardigan-wearing person in the Summer. So for a Summer date night outfit, I like to wear long-sleeve tops like this LUSH ruffle bell sleeve blouse! It’s a win-win situation because I won’t be too hot outside wearing it and I won’t be cold in the restaurant either!

LUSH Ruffle Bell Sleeve Blouse
I had purchased this blouse when the NSALE was going on so it was on major sale! I’m so glad I purchased it then because the price has gone up now but it is still worth the price! This ruffle bell sleeve blouse is so light and airy that you can wear it during our Summers in Texas! Like I mentioned before, it is also perfect to wear inside restaurants so you won’t freeze to death.
My favorite part of this blouse is definitely the ruffle bell sleeves it has! I mean, how can you not love it, right? At first I didn’t think I would like the polka dots but once I tried it on I fell in love! If you’re not fond of the polkadots, this ruffle bell sleeve blouse does come in other patterns and colors!
Bottoms, Sandals, and Earrings
Unfortunately, the shorts that I purchased from American Eagle are no longer in stock so I had to link similar ones. They look VERY similar but the ones I linked are high-waisted and the ones I wore in the pictures are not. I have been wearing my American Eagle shorts all Summer (not kidding) because they’re so comfy and stretchy! If you have trouble finding shorts, you should look into theirs because I usually have a hard time finding shorts for my frame!
I probably sound like a broken record by now but Tory Burch’s Miller sandals will always be my favorite. I finally purchased the black ones (pictured above) as a birthday gift to myself earlier this year! If I could have it my way, my closet would be filled with their sandals!
You’ve probably noticed that tassels are everywhere and I had to get these adorable tassel earrings when I saw them. These earrings are very light on your ear lobes unlike other tassel earrings and thats why I love these so much. I have tried to wear other tassel earrings but they would weigh down my earlobe and it made my ears look funny. If you need earrings that are stylish but won’t weigh your earlobes down, these are great!
I ended up wearing this outfit this past Friday to our date night (which was really late-afternoon). We dined at our all-time favorite restaurant, Mi Cocina. We are huge creatures of habit and will probably continue to go there until we’re tired of it. Are there any restaurants that you and your significant other tend to favor for date night? Let me know in the comments below!
