What’s your typical summer date outfit? Do you still get all dressed up for your partner or, if you have little kids, are you just happy to get time alone? Do you have rules like “no talking about the kids”? These best-selling espadrilles give you a ton of height but are actually only 2″ high with the platform, so they’re a good medium, and I could see them working with everything from a casual outfit to a more dressed up look for a summer date or brunch with your girlfriends. They’re $149 at Nordstrom, Amazon, and Zappos, and come in a zillion colors.

Psst: here’s our last discussion on date nights for working parents

Makeup & Beauty Monday: La Petite Robe Noire Lipcheek

Have you ever noticed that if you go out LOOKING for something specific (a new white blouse, a pair of jeans, a new liquid blush or a certain color of red lipstick) you never, ever find it. I feel like all of my best discoveries have been happy accidents — as is my newest obsession, this lip and cheek tint from Guerlain. It is shockingly bright — SHOCKINGLY bright, I tell you — when you take it out of the container, and slightly thicker than the consistency of Benetint’s classic red cheek tint. I was shopping with a friend and tried it on my hand while she was looking at perfumes. Once applied it seemed like a much gentler wash of color, so I tried it on one cheek, and immediately my friend said, “OH. Wow. That looks really nice. Like your whole face just woke up.” Sign me up! I bought it and love it. (I don’t use it as a lip tint but apparently you can also do that.) It’s $35 at spots like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and SephoraLa Petite Robe Noire Lipcheek

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Dotted Tweed Blazer

machine washable tweed blazer from ExpressHuh: I kind of really like this washable tweed blazer from Express — and it’s only $128, and comes in sizes 00-18. (Side note: I just got some pants from them and was happy to discover the sizing runs really big — so if you’re in the mood for some friendly vanity sizing, do check them out.) The blazer has a tiny gray/red/blue check pattern. 24 Inch Dotted Tweed Blazer
