Three Ways to Feel Comfydent for Date Night

Summer always is my favorite season for date night. There’s a lot more activity in our town during the warmer months, so Ryan and I seem to make more of an effort to indulge in at least one weekly date night to get out and enjoy a game of mini golf, drinks al fresco by the lake, or even a trip to the local drive-in for a casual meal of a hot dog and fries (my favorite!).

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.

Three Ways to Feel Comfydent for Date Night

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.

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.
