from day to date

Since I am so very behind on my 30 for 30 I thought that I’d do a day to night combo outfit and take out two birds with one stone. Personally I wanted to get it done within 30 days and I’m about 5 days behind…which is normal for me honestly. In fact, I woke up surprised today was Saturday and not Monday. Anyways, this is my day outfit.

I took a turn for the dude on this outfit. Definitely menswear inspired with the khaki’s and brogues. My husband pointed out that a dude would never wear a floral tank but my oversized polo and sports coat wasn’t in my 30 for 30 challenge, so instead of straight up menswear, I was just merely inspired.

I bet you are dying to know what I wore for night, aren’t you? I bet you already scrolled down and peeked didn’t you? You nasty little scoundrel, you.

This is my date night look. (Same top, different bottom.)

I know this doesn’t look like night, and that’s because it isn’t. It’s more of early evening. But from “day to early evening” just doesn’t roll of the tongue quite right.

We traveled over to a little town not too far away and found the cutest little wine bar. Complete with a waiter that introduced himself as “Uncle Danny” and a guitar player who needed tips for his “wife that has two babies inside of her right now.” If that doesn’t speak classy to you, then I don’t know why you are here.

And then I took Bryan’s senior portrait. We are all so proud of him for graduating, albeit 7 years too late.

    to quote Mr Baldwin "OMFG" I'm actually your first comment!!! prolly cuz you literally just posted it on twitter and I'm basically a stalker.

    To be quite frank.. I'm amazed that people get dressed with a thought to fashion 5 days a week. To be franker-I live in stretch skinny jeans and a soft sweatshirt half the time, the other half I'm unshowered and still in my pj's. My coworkers couldn't care less thank goodness.. all they ask is that I take multiple breaks an hour to flick a string around for them.

    so basically.. you go girl.

    I'm so glad Bryan graduated… though I expected roses, a diploma and soft focus for his grad shot.
    Great day to early evening looks, always so classy!

  10. Cute outfits! I'm really digging those shoes in the first outfit. I've been on the lookout for flat oxfords and just haven't seem to find the right ones. Well you did and you made them even awesomer!
