Date Night


Jon and I went out on a date night Friday night. It couldn't have come at a more perfect time after two weeks of living in a whirlwind. Maddox's cold finally ran it's course and he's finishing up the last of his antibiotic. His top tooth cut through completely and the drooling has ceased. And now he's sleeping through the night again. Well - he did twice in a row so basically I'm praying this is our new routine for awhile anyhow.

So date night, we went out for sushi and martini's - one of our favorites. I wanted to wear something "holiday/festive", but it's been 65-70 degrees and sunny everyday so I can't keep wearing boots and scarves. I hardly ever wear skirts, but if I do it's a pencil skirt for sure! This outfit is one of my favorites! I decided to try something different and I actually loved the way this outfit turned out! Unfortunately this shirt is from Francesca's last year, but I've linked some similar options. You could exchange flats for a cute pair of heels, which I completely recommend because wearing a pencil skirt has a way of making you look short because of it's longer length so pairing it with flats kind of stunts your height even more. Heels would make your legs lengthened. These are on my my wishlist and it would just take this outfit up one more notch. A closed toe option like these would be more appropriate for this season.

Oh and completely random, but I'm sorry for the pixelated and blurry pictures. We got a new camera and lens and we are still trying to figure out how to use it. So bare with me pretty please!

One more thing! Make sure you enter my giveaway. Today is the last day! Click here.

  1. This is such a darling outfit!! I never thought to pair my love of plaid with a pencil skirt (how disconnected from the fashion world am I?! Ick!)

  2. I'm pretty sure you're like the cutest thing ever! Love this outfit!

  3. To be honest, I like grainy photos a little bit (gasp, I know haha) I don't know why but they feel cozy to me maybe? I don't know, it's silly haha. Love this look, it's classy yet comfy at the same time. The messy bun adds a casual elegance I think, too. Is that a thing? Anyway, you look gorgeous as usual! Good luck with the camera! xx

  5. I love your plaid shirt!

  6. I love this outfit and you seriously rock the messy bun look. Gosh I wish it wasn't still 80 here in Florida! Texas was colder then here! I want to wear flannel so bad! Also, what lens did you get? I really want a new lens for Christmas.

  7. Looking gorgeous as always! Love the casual plaid paired with a pencil skirt - perfect for the holidays!
