I love Tuesdays around here because I get to share another date night style. This week’s “It’s a Date” is all about the casual white on white look. If you’re at a loss for what to wear, pairing whites with a little dose of contrast or color is super easy. I happen to love these white jeans so any chance I have to wear them is great. This week I traded in heels for flats so we could do some serious walking around. Take a look.
Do you have a pair of white jeans you love? They are so versatile for summer and I wear them with everything. I am wearing a size 25. Pairing them with a white t-shirt creates a clean look and then you can accessorize any way you want. I am in love with my Barrington Bag. Truly. This week we headed to Balboa Island and did and walked the charming neighborhood. We could walk along the water and look at houses all day long. Of course we like to pretend and pick out which home we would want to magically buy. Do you do that? The tote was perfect to take as we tossed in some waters and a towel in case we wanted to relax and sit on the beach for a bit.

Do you have a fun town near you where you can just walk around and enjoy? There is something about being in the fresh air that is so nice. And this spot brings back great memories for us from our dating years so there are always a ton of funny stories that flood back. Mostly of the stupid things we did when we were younger. . . but moving on.
Date Night Hot Spot: Balboa Island is a huge favorite of ours. We love to walk up and down the rows of gorgeous homes and pop into the little shops. When we head down to Balboa we go early so stores are still open. And you can’t possibly go to Balboa Island and not have a frozen banana. My favorite. After hanging out for a couple hours we headed to CDM and had dinner at The Crow Bar. We highly recommend it. Fun atmosphere and great food. We recommend the Roast Chicken Wedge Salad and The Crow Burger. Yummmmm!
Date Night Question of the Week: Ryan and I both have people in our lives facing some pretty tough battles. It makes you really rethink the craziness of life. This week’s question was, “What is one small change you can make to really take in each and every day?” Notice we said small as we know that major changes don’t happen over night. It was thought provoking and we both batted around a few ideas before landing on one. Anxious to carry it out.

More Fresh White Finds
And since we are on the topic of fresh white for summer, I rounded up a few dress options and jeans. I LOVE that white maxi. Really different and cute. Are you a big fan of white for summer?
As always, thank you for popping in. I appreciate it more than you know. And I try really hard to respond to every comment within the post as soon as possible.

You look adorable. Balboa is my favorite. I grew up on the island, and my parents still live there. Such a fun date spot.
Oh, really?! Wow. That’s amazing. We always dream and pretend one of those is ours. It really is fa fun date night spot. Have a great day, Katie.

Care to share some of the small change ideas that you exchanged? I, for one, am too old for major changes, but small ones I can handle. 🙂
Never too old!!! 😉 Happy to share. I’ll email you!

I love #GirlStrong! So cute!
Isn’t that cute. I wish they sold them. Hope you’re having a great week, Erin.

LOVE this! So simple and cute! Hot mama!
Awe, thanks, Krystine. Hope you’re having a good week. I love seeing the homes on Instagram from your morning run. Now if only I could get out and run. . . I need your abs!
I have been searching for the perfect white jean…I’m not sure they exist! Would love to try these, but on some reviews people said they were see through. I can’t imagine you would wear them if they were, but just wanted your feedback. Thanks!
Hi Kerri. Of course after I read this I had to ask my husband if they are. Typical husband response, “No. But I wish they were.” Anyhoo. . . I have never thought them to be see through. They are not a thick denim and I wear nude colored underthings . . but I would never have called them see through. Hope that helps. 🙂
This is a gorgeous outfit! Love it on you 🙂
Thank you, Abbie. So sweet. Comfy, too, which is nice. Have a great afternoon.
I really love your tee! If they ever start selling them again please let us know.
Oh thank you. I definitely will. Maybe I will send them an email. xo
Again, you are too adorable! Love the #. Wow, that is a loaded question!! We are facing/have faced a summer full of changes and it is only June! I am trying to keep calm, and remember, “this too shall pass”. Change makes me anxious (now I know where my girls got that from). I wish we had more pedestrian friendly spots to go on a date lunch/night. They will be building a town center just up the road in the next couple years, so we are super excited about that.
Thank you, Lauren. xo Isn’t that #girlstrong cute. Wish I had one for little R. Indeed a loaded question. This too shall pass is a common phrase around here. And it is quite true. I hope you quickly settle into a nice rhythm amidst the change, my friend. And how great that you will have a town center soon. That will be a fantastic addition.
I really want to thank you for your posts.
You have inspired me to step up my date night outfits. A couple of posts back, you shared a cute skirt & tshirt with sandals. I ordered the skirt and LOVE it! Your style is so cute, & I could afford it!
Really… Thank you so very much for sharing.
Oh, my goodness. Read your comment this morning and it started my day off on the right foot. I am so so thrilled.. I LOVE that skirt, too. I think it’s even cuter in person than on the computer. I am so happy you found something you like and I love that you all embrace date night, too. So important.
Have a wonderful day. Thank you again for letting me know.
Just wanted to let you that the tee shirt #girlstrong is available for sale on their website. I ordered one today. Love your style!
