day and night

Today is Wednesday otherwise known as date night for my husband and I. You naysayers may say “wow is that all you do? just go on dates?” No. We lunch together as well. Every single day. Oh and sometimes we work, but that’s usually when we can fit it in between our dates and lunches.
We drove over to a little town not too far away and ate at our favorite burger joint. A nice man came in with a guitar and was the unofficial entertainment for the evening. As he drank his beer and strummed his guitar he sang the words “Who’s Gonna Get Stabbed in Alaska Tonight?” I think it was his own original piece. Nothing says romance like a song about a violent eskimo murder.
Since we needed to head out pretty quickly after work for our date, I grabbed some jeans to change into after we took my outfit pictures. I ended up really liking my date night outfit. It feels very americana no? I love when an outfit can easily go from day to night when you just add jeans.

Oh and if you are wondering how is it that I can not be wearing socks — it got up to 60 degrees here today. Yesterday it was snow, today sun. Texas weather is certifiably bi-polar.

  1. I love the colors in the top outfit; the cut of the skirt is perfect. Great transition as well!

    Love it! I'm semi-obsessed with belts over cardis right now.
    Just fabulous– you belong in a catalog. A really good one, I mean.

    I love both outfits! I think the jeans version might be my favorite but it's a close call.

    Also that song sounds lovely. If only you two could be serenaded with it every night πŸ™‚

    Love the mustard skirt! I can never decide what to wear my mustard colored clothing with – I always feel very mustard/ketchupy – but you pulled it off flawlessly!

    And 60 degrees! I am jealous! We were still 30s-40s in Aggieland. πŸ™

  6. Another day, another blog post in which you wear clothes that I absolutely adore. πŸ™‚ I seriously love the color palette here and that you transitioned from day to night.

    You are so funny — I enjoy actually reading your posts and not just skimming over the pictures (which I'm pretty guilty of sometimes :|)

    Your other blog is as equally entertaining

    you southern ladies and your bragging of warm weather.. wisco got up to 35 and I walked to take the trash out without a coat. And yes I did a little jig.. that turned into a fit of rage when it started snowing again today.

    in other news, just found you via lovely indiana, and I have to say… I'm quite smitten. Can your boyfriend please come photograph me? I promise my manfriend won't mind.. he would love a few days off! πŸ˜‰

  13. The eskimo murder song made me laugh so hard. I read it to my roommate, and he loved it as well. Gotta love the crazy troubadour types.

  17. I love an outfit that can funtion in the day and evening! And I'm not a fan of Forever 21's quality of shoes, I must admit that your shoes are fab!

    And I agree, Texas weather is definitely bipolar!

  18. I really like both versions but I might possibly be in love with the day one. That J. Crew skirt is amazing and I just love what you did with it here.

  39. Super cute outfit, especially with the jeans. We have our weekly date night as well, but it usually involves eating in, watching a movie, and just plain paying attention to each other…as opposed to every other night when I'm reading and he's on the computer. Good times!
