Contrast Strap Top with Embroidery

Date night should be a special night, and I think it calls for special outfits. This contrast strap top with embroidery is so sweet and a little modern, and perfect for a night out. It works well with skinny jeans, jean skirts, or even casual with cut offs. I wore it with my favorite black skinny jeans that are high waist and so comfortable. They are one of my closet staples and you can find them here. Stay tuned for a special offer for, which is where I found the pretty pieces I have on!

I love how flattering this top fits. The ruffle is so cute and the contrast straps add a little edge. The embroidery is flat out adorable. At $15.99, it’s a great addition to your lotn (‘look of the night’) arsenal.


These sandals have awesome lacing with a little braiding detail. The stacked heel makes them mostly comfortable, and they have a zipper on the back so you don’t lace them up every time you put them on. My bag usually goes out with me. It’s the perfect quilted handbag and I am a huge fan of the all black detail. My jewelry is from Rocksbox. This bracelet is my favorite summer piece and reminds me of a mermaid with it’s gorgeous blueish aqua stone. My necklace is the prettiest dainty choker. I received both in my Rocksbox set. It’s a monthly subscription and for $19 (or one month FREE with code ‘DONTDRESSLIKEAMOMXOXO’)  you get three pieces of jewelry to try. You can keep one, two, or all three pieces and get $21 off your purchase each month, or send them all back and get three new pieces to try. I love making a wishlist of jewelry I want to try as well as getting surprised by the picks from my stylist. It’s such a fun service!

I really love this look for date night, a concert, or stepping out for lunch. The top is so cute and perfect for warm summer days. You can find shoppable links to all the items below, plus lots of shoe options including budget friendly finds!
