Family Date Night with Gordmans

I am excited to be partnering with Gordmans for this “Family Date Night” style post that’s just in time for Valentine’s Day. If you have a family you know how challenging it can be to get a sitter and make plans when you have little ones.

We changed this year’s celebration to include the our entire little family. We are having a family date night instead! The first thing on my mind was our outfits of course. I know outfits that match exactly can be super cheesy but I found my way around that with coordinating looks.

I went to Gordmans and hit up the mens section first. I’m happy to wear any color but my husband is not! He gave me full shopping privileges for his look so I wanted to make sure that he was happy with the color choice and style. When I saw this top I knew it was right for him! Some color but not too much, interesting sleeves with a snug yet comfy fit. For his bottoms a nice dark denim jean in a straight fit was just right.

Once I knew “olive green” was the theme I was able to target that color in the boys section for Grant. I could not believe that I found a graphic that fit the color scheme, yet describes him so well! He loves to roam around and make little collections for his favorite finds in nature.

Let’s face it, girls have so many fashion options that I knew I would be able to find a look that I loved quickly. Honestly, I found the fur vest first and just had to have it because I don’t currently own one. It also fits the overall color palate. I spotted the top because of its color but I initially thought it might be too casual but putting a faux fur vest on top of anything makes it amazing! I snagged a pair of white pants to coordinate with the white in Mike and Grant’s outfit and it was such a great choice. As I headed to check out I passed by the hand bags and was immediately drawn to this purse. It’s like it was meant for our outfits!

We had such a fun time shopping for our looks a Gordmans and Grant even got himself a hooded animal blanket that he’s obsessed with now. Now we just need to figure out where we are going!!! Ha Ha!

Stripes and Animal Prints

This look is all about retro vibes with modern flair! Mixing retro style with current trends is an ultimate fashion goal. I wrapped both of those ideas into one fabulous look on a budget for you. Animal prints, stripes, retro white sunglasses and a scarf is all you need to pull this look off. I sized up in this sweater to make it extra slouchy and comfortable.

Mary Kay Chromafusion Make Up

I’m so excited about Mary Kay sponsoring this beautiful make up look! The new Chromafusion Collection has some of the smoothest and most vivid eyeshadows I’ve ever used. I have the magnetized Pro Palette so it’s filled with an array of blushes, eye shadows, highlighters and contours. It’s nice to have so many essentials in one secure location.

The inspiration for this look came from my love of monochromatic fashion styling. I broadened my makeup wardrobe to include gorgeous colors like my garments. Now my monochromatic look expands into my face with my Mary Kay Chromafusion collection.

I know you want to know more about what I used to create this “fifty shades of green” look so here we go! On my lid I used Emerald Noir to create a cool cat eye look. I used a tiny bit of Shiny Penny in the inner corner of my eye and lightly in the center of my lid too. I used the Hot Coral blush on my cheeks which looks beautiful on brown skin! To add to this already beautiful look I used Honey Glow highlighter for an added glow!

I got so many compliments on this makeup look while I was out shooting so I’m so pumped to finally share all of the details.
