Date Night

(Click picture to shop)

My husband just got back from a two-week trip to Germany. While he was gone, I kept both kids and in that time I got sick, my youngest son woke up multiple times a night, my oldest son woke up early one morning and threw up, a tornado hit our neighborhood, and four days later we had another threat of severe weather so I took my boys and jumped in the car and drove south. So, needless to say, I would like a nice date night with my husband. Here are two looks that I think would be perfect for a three-hour dinner.

I don't typically go for an all over floral (or rain forest) print but there is something eye-catching about this dress. A busy dress like this one doesn't need a bunch of accessories that will compete with it. Keep it simple with minimal jewelry and a sleek clutch.

What are your ideal date night looks?

  10. I think you deserve at least 2 nights out with your husband - I love both looks!
    My preference is always a classy, feminine look and whenever the weather allows it, I'd wear a dress or a skirt.

    Speaking of the weather, I am sorry, your husband went to Germany when we probably had the most dreadful spring ever... it has been very cold and rainy all the time. Please tell him that it is not always like that and I hope he didn't get a wrong impression...
