Date Night

Tonight was date night! In the 6+ years of our relationship, the word "date" has rarely been uttered between us. So last night when Bob suggested it, my heart about melted and I instantly said yes! We haven't really gotten to spend much time together lately - what with his interview in New York last weekend and my consecutive long event nights - so this was really just a chance to spend some time together that didn't involve the couch, TV and our laptops. After a grueling day of work, a light dinner of supremely delicious food and wine, good conversation, and puppy dog looks made a sweetly wonderful way to end the day.

Floral top - Joni Arnold (The Limited) / Grey wide-leg pants - New York & Co. / Grey wide belt - Banana Republic

So going into today, I wanted to wear something that I could wear the whole day - that could function for both work and date. (Tricky, I know.) But it was also going to be a bear of day (and truly was), so I also wanted to be sure it was something I didn't have to spend too much time thinking about, either. Cue this fitted short sleeve top with pretty rose applique. It's one of those tops that I don't seem to wear very often, but I'm always so happy when I do. I typically wear it this way, too - grey pants, belt and pops of color (colors of each vary). Not terribly creative, perhaps, but effective...

Handbag - Gustto / Yellow peep toes - Nine West (eBayed)

Not gonna lie, though. As fabulous looking as they are, these shoes might be most uncomfortable pairs of shoes I own. EVER. And that's saying something...

Earrings - ? / Ring - TJ Maxx
For my next wearing? I might wear the top with a full goldenrod skirt and a belted jacket, a la this ensemble.

    Hurray for date night! And double hurray for looking cute on date night. I love the inspiration outfit that you're contemplating too - I need more yellow in my life.
