Leather Bomber + Silk Tank Dress + Wrap Sandals | All Black for Date Night!

 The Huz and I were long overdue for a date night!  We had gotten a gift certificate from his boss for….CHRISTMAS, but just hadn’t gotten the chance to use it until now!

Ok….these were taken about 3 weeks ago now…as per usual!

BUT…

We went to the Pink Door downtown, and I decided to sass it up a little bit more than my usual around the neighborhood date night.  This dress is SO comfy, and I love that it can be dressed up or down.  I’m all about small cross body bags when I go out.  Easy to wear and not at all cumbersome! AND…I even managed to coerce the Huz out for a few!! Maya was not as happy about it.  She was a little bummed that we were leaving her behind… I knew it would get chilly in the evening, so I brought along this leather bomber.I think it’s such a fun alternative to the classic biker leather jacket! And these sandals are SO comfy!  I accidentally wrapped them oppositely, but I kind of like it!Dying over this vintage Hanna Andersson dress!!

SO CUTE!!  Even if she’s giving total attitude…

White Boho Top + High Waisted Crop Flares + Leopard Booties

 If there is one thing I’m pretty consistent about style wise, it’s that I love basics….with a twist or edge.

Really, this is a white top + jeans + booties + a crossbody purse…
And it IS!  But, I love the pirate style lace up to the top.  The destroyed raw hem crop flare… The LEOPARD PRINT booties….DYING when I found these! And a cross body purse is SOOOO refreshing after the ginormous “diaper-carry-every-snack-entertainment-toy-crayons-coloring book” purse you have to carry as a mom of a toddler.  You can easily throw it over your shoulder and carry the bare minimums-LOVE! I can’t even with these next two….

LOVE HER!!  And, I’m sure it doesn’t need to be noted, but yes, that is ALL HER! Up on our neighbors porch, and I’m like “GET DOWN!!”

Yet, it looks so graceful and posed…

Of course I took a pic!

haha. 🙂 “Who me?!” So, this was one of those warmer fall evenings, and ALL the neighborhood kids were out.  It is a miracle I got any shots of just us, because they all just wanted to play.

WHICH IS GREAT!!!

Except…ugh.  Can I just have 5 minutes??  And of course, they were all asking what I was doing with the tripod and camera…  Don’t mind ME!

haha.

Sooooo in between them all running around the block (genius parenting move!!) I got shots of myself! 🙂And then, Maya played Star Wars with ANOTHER set of neighbor kids that came out after the other ones went in for dinner! Don’t mess with her!!!  She’s got older brothers…

HA!!
