A Classy Date Look From Head to Toe

The Look


Breakin it down..

The Hair
I kept my hair pretty simple by just flat ironing it.
  Tease the crown of the head using a teasing comb.
Take two sections, one from each side of the head, twist them and bobby pin them back. 
This takes more of the focus off of the hair and more on the face. :)
 Finish with a flexible hold hair spray. 


The Makeup



For the eyes
Use a satin shimmery gold color all over the lid
Place a bronze shimmer color on the outer part of the eye lid blending it into the outer V area
Use a neural matte brown eye shadow in the crease 
Use a matte eye shadow a few shades lighter than your skin tone under the brow 
Take the same bronze shimmer color and smudge it on the outer region of the lower lash line
Then take the same shimmery gold color and smudge it on the inner lower lash line towards the tear duct
Apply Mascara and curl your lashes
Apply any tapered false eye lashes 

For the cheeks
Apply a bronze blush on the lower apples of the cheeks, blending towards the hairline 

For the lips
Apply any berry colored lipstick 
A berry colored lipstick is very classy without looking overdone. It is much easier to pull of than a red lip.

Key Colors



The Clothes
For this look, my key piece is the neutral blazer. 
I went with a lighter color blazer in order to not look too dark with my darker lip color.


 A simple cream colored shirt is worn under the blazer. 
To give off more of a casual yet dressy vibe I wore a dark wash pair of jeggings 


The Accessories
A leopard scarf is worn to add interest to the outfit 
(Leopard accessories are a great fall fashion trend!)


I wore simple gold jewelry pieces to add a touch of glamour. 
The spike bracelet gives a bit of edginess to the outfit. 


For my nails I went for a rich darker pink color to add a fun fall color to the outfit. 
(It looks red in the picture but I swear its not! haha)


I wore a darker bag in contrast to the lightness of the blazer and shoes. 
It has a snake skin pattern which adds a new texture to the outfit. 


And for the shoes.. I wore a pair of platform nude/beige colored pumps. 


I wore this look for my boyfriend and I's 3 year anniversary. :)
 I felt that it was very appropriate for the fall weather. It is very comfortable yet dressy and very classy.

Blazer and Pumps- Charlotte Russe
Jeggings- American Eagle
Scarf - Pacsun
Spike Bracelet- Forever 21
Purse- Jessica Simpson from TJ Maxx


I hope everyone has a good Saturday!
