What I Wore: A New York Date Night


It's been a really long time since I've shared a little outfit post on here, hasn't it? Truth be told, between long days at work and doing all the final prep for the wedding, I just haven't had time to go out and shoot any photos. But I really want to make them more of a focus around here moving forward - they're one of my favourite type of posts to put together and you guys always seem to enjoy them too. So with that in mind, we shot a couple of outfits while we were in New York - I just had to make the most of those gorgeous city backdrops!

It was my ideal kind of Friday night - we had a yummy dinner at Eataly before enjoying a couple of uh-mazing cocktails at The Nomad and then walked home with a view of the Empire State building all lit up for the holiday weekend. Pretty dreamy, huh?

And this ASOS dress couldn't have been more perfectly suited to our evening - the fabric is light enough to withstand those summer in the city temperatures and the shape of it felt pretty flattering, even after consuming a gigantic bowl of pasta.

They were the flats I wore on the evening of the wedding (I also had the heeled version for the ceremony which I love even more!) and I think they might be the prettiest pair of sandals I have ever owned. They instantly add a bit of sass to any outfit an they were the perfect shoe for being comfy yet still feeling glam while we were in New York.
