Date-night inspired fall outfit

I think there are two kinds of dressers when it comes to date-night attire. Those who wear something for their significant other and those who wear something for themselves. I would like to think I fall somewhere in between. I am in no way above trying to look good and getting attention from the man, but I don't think there is any reason those things can't go hand-in-hand. And so this outfit is born. I have heard a lot of fashion experts say that you only want to showcase one body part at a time otherwise it's overwhelming. I could not agree more. With this outfit I am able to show off my legs with this skirt and the leg lengthening heels, but I am covered up on top. And that actually brings me to my favorite part of this outfit: the top. I love to wear my striped shirt, but sometimes it can look a little "Sag Harbor". Pairing it with this colorful scarf, skirt, and high heels, I feel more Parisian than Boca Vista. Piece 2 of the outfit that I love: the scarf. Normally this would feel a little stuffy, but because I am already showing off the gams, I feel no need to show off on top. And here you have it: a fall-inspired sexy but fashionable date-night outfit. What do you wear on date nights? Do you go super sexy? Or more casual?

I love this outfit! It is so pretty and chic...I love how you styled the scarf with the stripes, and balanced it all with the black skirt and brown accessories and shoes! Love it!
