Hey “Savvy Readers!” As you can tell from the title I had another opportunity to kick it with my favorite guy! (Shout-out to our awesome parents that watch the kiddos, allowing us a few hours of grown-up kid-free fun!) So, this Friday we enjoyed mexican at Cantina’s and watched the awesome movie Red Tails! This is a must see film inspired by the heroic Tuskegee Airman. And in their honor patrons were asked to wear red hence the inspiration behind the outfit chosen for the evening. I opted for another casual look since I would be sitting in a packed, chilly theater for a couple of hours. I rocked my hair in high bun because this was a last-minute date and my hair was looking a mess. I kept my makeup simple as well, I went for a neutral eye but instead of my normal brown eye liner I used black. Let me know what you think…
Cami: JC Penny; Shirt: Thrifted; Blazer: TJ Maxx (years ago); Jeans: Target; Boots: Christmas gift from Hubby (a few years back); Purse: Gifted from my awesome cousin; Earrings: Target; Bracelets & watch: Gifted from Mom; Necklace: Mother’s Day gift
If you didn’t get a chance to catch Red Tails this weekend, I strongly suggest you do soon. I promise the movie will not disappoint. And if by some chance you haven’t heard of this awesome film, check out the trailer below.
Me and the Hubby
Hey “Savvy Readers!” I hope your weekend was as awesome as mine! I was out super late on Friday, which is quite unusual for me, hanging with the hubby. Our “date night” was a blast…we laughed, enjoyed great company (especially each other) and ate good. I felt like a college kid again out until 2am and I enjoyed every minute being with my favorite guy. But as always I was quickly thrust back into reality at 6:15am Saturday morning when my three-year old tapped me on the shoulder…but what can I say, I love being a mom!
Anywho, on to what I wanted to share with you all…”My Date Night Look!” For those of you who may not know, I am a self-proclaimed fashionista! I am constantly on the internet checking out fashion blogs or flipping through the latest fashion mag. My mom always says that “I’m a slave to fashion!” But what can I say…clothes, shoes and makeup make me happy! So on my blog I want to share my love of fashion and show you that you can be super fabulous on a budget. And being a mom doesn’t mean you can’t be fab…it’s totally doable! =)
Now for my look, this Friday, I went for a more casual look and paired it with a brown smokey eye with an added pop color on the lower lash line. I’m rocking a pair of fabulous over-the-knee boots that my hubby purchased (alone, without my help) and my new favorite earrings. Check out the pictures below and let me know what you think!
