However, I really struggle with feeling confident as I get dressed for date night. I’m not sure why, but there always seems to be an added pressure to look just right and even almost eight years later, I still want to impress my husband! That’s why I make sure to follow three key steps as I get ready so that I look and feel my best.
1. COMFORTABLE (AND CUTE!) UNDERGARMENTS.
I’m not one to sacrifice comfort for style, so comfortable and cute undergarments are my secret weapon to feel confident. I would argue that no woman feels at her best without quality and properly-sized undergarments. Plus, summertime = sunshine = sweat (and lots of it, if you’re anything like me!), and the last thing that I want to do is tug and pull at my clothes all night long. That’s why I typically opt for soft, breathable fabrics that have a bit of stretch to them during this time of year.
I’ve been reaching for the Hanes Ultimate Comfy Support ComfortFlex Fit® Wire-Free Bra since the seamless design lends itself to a smooth, line-free silhouette under any clothing. It also has a tag-free label to ensure itch-free comfort, and the versatile style makes this bra a great foundation for any look.
Hanes Cool Comfort® Cotton Bikini Panties, made with wicking fabric, keeps you cool for all-day comfort – perfect for summertime date nights! The soft, breathable cotton comes preshrunk for a lasting fit, and the low-rise elastic waist fits gently for all-day ease. Plus, you can’t beat the price! You can find them in a pack of six for $13. Be sure to visit Hanes.com first to check for special offers/discounts.
2. A SPECIAL PIECE OF JEWELRY.
Especially for date night, I love to pull out a special piece of jewelry that I don’t normally get to wear. Usually my choice is my Tiffany charm bracelet. The bracelet was a gift from Ryan for my college graduation, and we have since begun to add Tiffany charms to it that represent a vacation or special milestone. It will come as no surprise that my favorite charm yet is the Tiffany dog bone to symbolize when we adopted Finley!
3. BOLD LIPS.
Since I stick to a nude lip for everyday wear, I almost always reach for a bright or bold lip color for date night and special occasions. It’s amazing what a simple change of lipstick color can do for your facial features (teeth included!) and how it pulls a whole outfit together. I gravitate toward berry hues and darker colors, but you never can go wrong with a pop of red on the lips.
If you also struggle with getting ready for date night, I encourage you to give these three tricks a try! They are a no-fail way to instantly feel put-together and at your finest. Just remember that when you’re comfortable, you’re confident!
