The Shoeniverse Summer Date Night - Shop the Look
I'm writing this from my sick desk** (it's like a sickbed but less restful) and I hope you enjoy the post and the what currently feels like a monumental effort to write. I've been put on constant painkillers now for my knees, and four days in I'm feeling sleepy and very very sick.
However, this is midsummer, and as such there are Summer date nights to be had. I wanted to create a look to feature as soon as I found this divine cornflower blue dress from BCBMAXAZRIA, and yes it's possibly a little out of budget for some readers of Shoeniverse, it's a look that I think could be created with some clever high street or vintage pieces if you like it.
I've paired it with shiny silver accessories. I love the clean lines of the mules, plus they are not too high as to be uncomfortable to wear. The stunning chrome finish Lulu Guinness purse is just to-die-for, in every possible way. The shape, the finish, it's probably my fave new purse from 2015 thus far, and if you can add it to your evening rotation is sure to always turn heads.
Finish it all off with rosy natural makeup, smokey eyes, and a monochrome manicure. There is no better way to boost your dating confidence than a look that is polished, natural, and doesn't look like you have had to try too hard. You can shop the individual items by clicking the links below:

**So I normally queue my posts for the week across the previous weekend, due to my general working day (of almost 13 hours end to end) making it hard to do this during the week. However, I find myself now sick on a Sunday and in need of posts to be written. So forgive me if this week is a little rushed. I had anticipated having more time.
