Guest Post: Long Distance Loving

Happy Friday! My name is {av} and I'm thrilled to be guest posting here at Strong Sense of Style while Melissa enjoys a few days away in the Lonestar State. {I had the pleasure of meeting the beautiful lady behind this blog at a blogger meet-up in NYC this past May. She's just a doll, so you should be happy to have found your way here!} On most days, you can find me at {long distance loving}, where I host a link-up on everyone's favorite day of the week called Friday's Fancies. I decided to create a Friday's Fancies with Melissa's trip south in mind--I hope you like it :)

1) Everything about this T-Bags Embellished Jersey Maxi Dress screams summer to me. I think it would be positively perfect for an easy, breezy date night like the one Melissa has in store tonight in Houston.
2) These Fallon Collections Vanishing Microspike Hoop Earrings added a little edge to this get-up, but I thought it paired well with that killer studded clutch below. I couldn't resist adding them!
3) Nothing says date night like a bold lipstick, like this Chanel Hydrabase Lipstick in Fiesta. I loved the color--and the name! I thought it was great for a fun night out in Texas :)
4) Though I could have easily added a killer pair of heels, I'm all about comfort, so these Musa Braided Metallic Leather Sandals fit the bill splendidly. They definitely pack a bigger punch than an average pair of flip-flops.
5) What girl would ever pass up on Gucci? Case in point: these Gucci Round-Frame Acetate Sunglasses.  I loved their delicate frames and thought they would be a nice contrast rom the spiky earrings!
6) If I were to pick favorites in this outfit, I think this Emilio Pucci Studded Textured Leather Clutch just might edge out that fabulous maxi dress. It's bold and beautiful, which is just how every girl should feel on a date night.

What's your go-to summer date night outfit?

Be sure to stop by and check out the other Friday's Fancies today at {long distance loving}! 
Many thanks again to Melissa for having me :)  xoxo {av}
