Casual Weekend Wear

My inlaws were in town this weekend. We had a lot of fun relaxing. Friday night we went to dinner near by and just caught up. Saturday we played at the local park with the Bug and then the Hubs and I went on a date without the baby – dinner and a movie. The grandparents watched the baby and loved it! Sunday after church, we went to Co Co Sala for brunch. The chocolate was amazing and i cannot wait to go back with girlfriends. Today I had doctor’s appointments and errands to run after the inlaws left for Ohio.

Here is a roundup of weekend outfits. I wore one other one – but the Bug got it very dirty and not picture worthy.

It was a long week and it was nice to change into something very comfortable for dinner at the local diner.

This was my park and date night outfit. Pretty casual – but we really just ate dinner at the mall and then went to a movie.

I am so excited that the Hubs and I did a little bit of shopping when we were out running errands. I have some BOLD outfits coming this week.

The detail shots are always fun to put together. You may have noticed that some pieces I wore over and over again. That happens on the weekends. I like to remix multiple days in a row. I also think that leopard should be considered a neutral. What do you think?

I also found out that I can make my hair wavy. Naturally my hair is very straight -so to have a little waves is very exciting to me. What do you think? Do you like the waves?

***on a side note – I took all of these pictures this morning due to the fact that we were super busy and my daughter was loving her snack in the highchair***


Date Night – January

This week is restaurant week in DC! It is awesome, tons of restaurants offer 3 or 4 course meals off of a special menu for a flat rate of $35.12 per person. Over the years, the hubs and I try to partake at least once during the week. This past year for Christmas, I gave him the gift of planning one date a month sans the baby. I never plan our dates and rarely plan the family outings, so this is a nice gift for him. I decided that January’s date would be for this week. I picked Ardeo + Bardeo  as the location and got our shared daytime nanny to watch Buggy tonight.

So the hubs and I have not been on a childless date in a long time {like since August}. I wanted something hot, but not dressy. It has been a long week at work and thinking about wearing tights tonight did not make me happy. Plus, this restaurant had a more laid back atmosphere. I love how easy this shirt is to wear and how nice it looks. I wore it here to be casual and sexy – yet I have great plans on wearing it to work in a fun professional way soon.

I started the night with a nice onion soup. It was just the right amount of salty and oniony and the cheese – to DIE for! I really love cheese. The hubs ordered the brussel sprouts for us to share because he really wanted the headcheese and ordered that separately. (I really don’t want to think about headcheese… that is absolutely NOT the kind of cheese that I love!!!) Then I had some lemony-thyme chicken with farro, it was good BUT the best part of the meal is always dessert {ok that is not true, but I do love a good dessert}. I ordered the chocolate pistachio tart and added on a nice cappuccino. So good and a great end to the evening!

I really like the blue and black polka dots of this shirt too. I like that they are randomly placed, it adds whimsy to the shirt. Is anyone else obsessed with polka dots right now? That and owls… I have an owls obsession too! Although with an owl as cute as this, how could you not be obsessed?!?!
