Date Night


Date night…  such a foreign phrase nowadays.  We are hoping to change that!  This is what I wore for our first date night 2 months after our sweet boy arrived.  My mom was in town and we literally went down the street – maybe 2 miles.  That’s as far as I felt comfortable going.  We ended date night at Target on a formula run.  I know – how romantic!

This is basically another variation of my uniform as of late.  Yes, it’s the good old tee + skinny jeans + jacket combo.  HOWEVER, this jacket is no ordinary jacket.  It is one of my “holy grail” jacket.  It was part of the Isabel Marant SS 2010 collection, and I’ve been stalking it on ebay since then.  I refused to pay 2-3x the retail value for a 3 year old jacket even if it is AMAZING.  My ebay saved search finally paid off, and I found a “Buy It Now” for a reasonable price in Japan!  Anyhow, this jacket is part of a new “thing” I’m trying called The Five Piece French Wardrobe – a separate post to come soon!

Style Rx:  An embellished jacket can take jeans and a tee from drab to FAB!  Even a bomber jacket – think brocade, studded, leather trim – will take your outfit to the next level.  Use caution as certain adorned blazers {a la Isabel Marant} may cause your bank account to be lower than usual.  Be sure to check your account prior to purchase!

Okay y’all!  Happy Monday!  Until the next post…

    1. Thanks Mica. We did! It was amazing – we could actually have an uninterrupted conversation!

      I’m replying on an iPhone WP app while I’m holding the baby – pretty neat! :)

      Hope you had a great day!

  1. You look fab for your date night!! You writing about yours reminds me of ours – we left our baby girl with my sister at our house – we enjoyed our uninterrupted time BUT we were so worried about leaving and came back early just to realize she was perfectly fine =)
    Looking forward to your post about the french wardrobe, sounds cool!!
