What I Wore - Date Night
Josh and I celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary last month and my wonderful friend Amy watched our boys so we could have an actual date night! We went out to dinner and I got to actually take my time and taste my food instead of how I usually have to bolt my food down to take care of Lucas. When you have a baby, you forget how wonderful it is to actually sit down and take your time over a meal with the person you love. We had an amazing time!
So... on to my outfit. I bought this beautiful shift dress at H & M a long time ago but I hadn't worn it because it is pretty short, which makes it tough to wear when I'm going somewhere with my boys. Since I knew that I wouldn't be chasing after little ones, date night was the perfect opportunity to bust it out.
I love the soft blush color, although looking at these pictures I really need to put some self tanner on my legs. The lace detailing along the top adds the perfect pop of visual interest. I took further advantage of being out without my kids by wearing these high black peep toe pumps.
The earrings I'm wearing were my grandma's and I wore them for the first time 9 years before when I borrowed them on my wedding day. The beautiful Judith Leiber clutch I'm holding was also my grandma's. I love using accessories to punch up the glitz factor on a more understated outfit.
