Date Night

Lately I’ve been a little lazy on getting dressed for date nights. Especially when we just go somewhere within a 5 mile radius of our house. See, we live in downtown McKinney and are in walking distance of the cutest downtown square in the world. We live, work and play within like 3 square miles so if we just run downtown to a restaurant or bar for a date, I can get a little lazy in getting all dressed up. I’ve been known to wear my yoga pants and sneaks to dinner because I mean…it’s just down the road and sometimes after 6 pm this weird thing happens when the yoga pants go on and then the yoga pants don’t come off. But honestly, I really like to dress up for dates. Lord knows I have lots of date night options in my closet. A little bit of effort makes it more special even if we are just walking down to our favorite place on the square. Plus, thats why clutches exist right? For date nights and awards shows. 
All that to say, I put this cute little romper number on and slipped on my heels for date night last night. It was a success. The guy was great. Bought my meal, laughed at my jokes. He even took my photos for me. Definitely keeper material.

  1. Such a sweet look! Yoga pants are powerful things…when you've got a cute romper like that in your closet, you've just got to fight against the power of the yoga pants! 😉

  10. Okay I used to be like that. Before I moved out to London, I wash home for a few months in Florida and every time we went out… I was in the same outfit. Literally looked the same from head-to-toe every time I left the house haha. I can totally relate. x

    Kendi, this outfit and the lighting in these pictures are SO good. That photographer of yours is definitely a keeper 😉

    PS I saw the convo on IG about being taller and finding a romper. I'm 5'9'' too and can't find one that doesn't make me look like an oversized toddler 🙁

  15. Adorable combo, I love that you dressed up the romper. I feel you, if we're going to a restaurant in our neighborhood I very rarely dress up.

    I know what you mean about getting a little lazy in dressing up for date nights. However it is fun to dress up a little. I really like the outfit you came up with. It's dressy and still casual.

    It's definitely hard! Or if the romper is too short (which i'm fine with sometimes) it's too bare somewhere else. There has to be a balance of how much skin to show, you know? Glad we can unite on rompers and looking like adult size toddlers.

    Do you mind if I ask what size you're wearing? I'd love to order this!! I'm 5'5" and wear a 6/28 for dresses/jeans but size small on top usually. Was thinking a medium so it's not too tight..
