Dressed in Red for Romantic Date Night

Dressed in Red for Romantic Date Night

It’s Day 254 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project and since I planned in advance not to blog on Valentine’s Day, I still had my hubby snap a pic of me yesterday –  dressed in red for a romantic date night. Though I get lots of compliments whenever I wear it, red in not my color. Still, on Christmas and Valentine’s Day, I’ll break out the few pieces I have and apply my Maybelline “On Fire Red” lipstick to match. In this instance, the outfit was pretty but  also practical for meeting a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic Swan for a life coaching session. Afterward, the Valentine’s daytime look made for an easy transition to a romantic date night since I was already dressed in red.

Me, Pink Collar Coach, in romantic red. Cardigan and shell purchased on clearance from Marshall’s two or three years ago. The black ribbed sweater leggings pair well with the ribbing on the set and meet my OCD need for things to look and feel right together! Red handbag w/gold accent is also a Marshall’s clearance find. Black shooties (shoe +boot) for mild winter weather.  All Calvin Klein. Hubby knows white roses are my fave. Inexpensive large ball jar from Goodwill.

My hubby generously offered to do whatever I wanted for date night. Initially, I thought I wanted to go out for dinner, but when I realized we had plenty of good stuff for a meal, I opted to stay in. I had fun having him serve as my photographer (he’s becoming quite meticulous about making sure my clothes are smoothed!) and just hanging out. After nearly twelve years, we’re still besties and enjoyed each others’ company – talking,  rekindling the romance, eating, and watching the Olympics. He even indulged me and sat through ALL of the figure skating – an act of true love!

Today, we’ve had another great day working from home together. And amazingly, though we talked so much yesterday, we had to discipline ourselselves to be productive and not spend our time chatting away. We’re good for one another that way too, in that we push each other to be our best. I suppose that’s one of the definintions of love, romantic or otherwise – that you call for the best in the other person. How blessed I feel to have that with my Valentine – whethered I’m dressed in red for a romantic date night – or not!

With our busy personal and professional lives, changing clothes can be a dilemma (one of the Ds)! With little time to spare, how are you Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose about transitioning from work wear to dressed for a date?

Be savvy & chic,

~Pink Collar Coach

  1. I work from home, so for me it’s pretty easy to change. Although, seeing I’m at home I don’t always dress in the nicest clothes. I try to make the effort once in awhile as it makes me feel more confident and I’m more productive when dressed better.

    1. Carla, it’s great to hear from you! When working from home, especially with children, pets, spouses, etc. in the mix, it can be tempting to dress so casually that we sacrifice our professional style. That wouldn’t be as big a deal if it didn’t decrease our productivity, like you said. In fact I blogged about this recently. https://pinkcollarsavvyandchic.com/2018/01/24/pink-collar-productivity-7-ways-to-work-from-home-like-a-boss. Hope you’ll check it out! Hope all is well and look forward to your next post! : )
