Red Tails…Date Night Edition

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.

Hangin’ with the Hubby

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!
