Date night can give anyone anxiety, especially if it’s your first date! I’ll be honest, I’ve been in a relationship for years and years, and I still get nervous when what to wear when my husband and I plan a date night. From what to wear to how much skin do you really show? Finding the perfect dress isn’t easy.

In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a fun LBD. There’s something so sexy about wearing a simple black dress! I feel like it’s super chic, and also, everyone looks good in black. It’s the one color that everyone can get away with!

This week, I will be celebrating 13-years with my husband and we are planning a fun date night without the baby to celebrate. For someone who has been in a long-term relationship like myself, it’s important that I make an effort for my night out with my hubby.

Let me clarify one thing, though — I am not trying to tell anyone to look good for your man, because I truly believe in dressing and making yourself look the way YOU want to. However, if you are looking to spice up your marriage, I think it’s important to kick your wardrobe up a notch. When I look good, I feel good; and that energy is contagious. Your partner will notice your confidence, which I feel like is the sexiest thing anyone can wear!

As a new mother, it’s hard finding time to get ready. Let’s be honest, us mommies are too busy putting our kids to bed and making sure they are well-fed and their diapers have been changed. My advice to anyone who doesn’t have much time to get ready is to go with a simple black dress. I recently found this sexy, chic, and simple LBD by Laundry, which I am obsessed with.

The dress hugs your body in all the right places. It doesn’t show much skin, but has these hot cut outs on the shoulder which I feel like can tease your partner. The dress adds mystery and you can either wear it with heels or booties like I did in this post.

For hair and makeup, you can really go in any direction since an LBD is so simple and basically makes you a blank canvas! From a fun high bun with red lips to letting your hair down with a fun smokey eye, your options are truly endless. For my makeup, I opted to test out this sexy smokey look which I thought worked well with the bangs. I also did a fun video where you can learn how I got my smokey eye makeup, which you can check out HERE.

I topped off my simple black dress with a fun over-the-top coat that I got at Topshop. The coat was inspired by Kate Moss and is perfect for anyone who wants to make a grand entrance into the first date.

What do you guys think about this black dress? Also, I am dying to know what the perfect date night is for you guys? Netflix and Chill or a night out on the town? I want some inspiration for my date with my husband this week as we celebrate 13 years, so leave comments below! Also, if you want to get this dress in your closet, CLICK HERE.
