Dinner Date



I'm pretty sure July was the last time my husband and I had a real night out sans kids.  Without having family nearby (aka free babysitting), it's hard to get excited about spending over $100 for a sitter + dinner and a movie.  But, since I have a best friend who was nice enough to offer to watch the kids & this week was his birthday, we decided to take the opportunity & enjoy a long-overdue date.  I, for one, will never turn down a chance to get all dressed up...and I was pretty excited the weather was warm enough that I didn't have to wear tights!




What I'm wearing:
Cynthia Rowley dress (via TJ Maxx; similar), Forever 21 coat (similar), Charles Jourdan pumps (on sale here), Expressions NYC clutch (similar), c/o Capwell Co. necklace (here) and bracelet (here)

Your necklace is gorgeous! And I can't believe the jacket is from Forever 21. They are really putting out some great pieces.

Glad you had a nice date night. My hubby & I are in the same boat - no family nearby so we rarely have date nights.

Love your art deco necklace!

It is so hard to get those dates! We only live near one family member, but she's not exactly the babysitting watcher type. :/ And you look lovely for yours. That coat's collar is perfect and I love your heels! <3

Gorgeous! I love how simple and chic this look is! Not to mention you've paired the navy so perfectly with your accessories, not too much - just the right amount of sparkle.

I am loving the combo of the deep blue dress with those red shoes. I always see red and love it but never know what I would wear it with. Thanks for the ideas.

This is beautiful, and hope you enjoyed your date night! It's proof that when you have good pieces in your closet it's so much easier to look impeccable. Dress, heels, coat, necklace.... love.

Marissa at Style Cusp said...

I can't believe that coat is F21 - I was thinking it would be so much more expensive. Good find + you totally deserved this night out, miss! xo

LyddieGal said...

Kim, That great to hear. You should try the barter system with your friend. If she has kids. It's a great idea and FREE. She probably needs it just as much you and your husband do.

By the way, you look amazing for your date night with your husband. ;)

Hi Laura,

Yes, this was a recent Forever 21 purchase (end of November, I think) and it's the Love21 brand.
