Date Night

Posted on: August 25, 2013

When my husband came home, I was out taking these photos and he kept complimenting my outfit.  He couldn’t stop looking at me, so I suggested he take me out tonight (Sunday).  

Linking Up with Visible Monday and Watch What I’m Wearing.


He Just loves these shoes!!!  


I love the crisp white skinny’s with my new hi-low sheer plaid top… Funny thing was my husband mentioned that he isn’t a fan of plaid, but the green and sheerness changed his mind on this one… 


The lighting wasn’t great for these photos… I don’t know if you can see it but there is an orange stripe running through the plaid and I like how the shoes bring it out.  I chose gold jewelry to match the hardware on my purse.  How lucky that I purchased this wonderful green purse last year with Green being so big for Fall???  

Dear Readers, I had a wonderful vacation, but didn’t take too many picutres… My Son took the camera on his trip to CA, so we had phones and my tablet… So glad my oldest took that trip and had a wonderful time going to a Karaoke fundraiser for a politician, a wine tasting in the Sonoma valley, visited San Fransico, a social event for 20 somethings at a science musuem, etc.  and may eventually move there…..He has a friend in Davis going to graduate school and the culture is so much better for my genius art brained son!  He is stiffled here. Even his wardrobe fits better  and he received lots of compliments while there.  Just wish it wasn’t all the way across the country, but I’ve known he has the traveling bug since he was a young teen. 


I am grateful to everyone who shared their gratitudes and hope you will continue to do so!

I am so grateful to my husband’s boss for providing us that beautiful beach house vacation!

I am grateful for the friends who joined us through the weekend

I am grateful for the fun in the sun and waking up daily to the beautiful picture windows looking onto the beach.

I am grateful to be home and that my oldest had such a great trip to CA.

I am grateful that my husband celebrated 7 years with this company while on this trip and that it was recognized by the company. 

I am grateful for my husband’s enthusiasm and compliments regarding my outfit that led to our movie night!

Please feel free to continue to share your own gratitude, I loved them!!!!!!

First of all…way to go on the date-outfit! You look darling…I love the shoes, as well! Your gratitude list is amazing…it’s always good to remember all that nourishes us in the crazy life, yes?

Thank you and yes Gratitude keeps your spirits up!

I really like this outfit and it is always encouraging when our husbands compliment a look! Enjoy your date! Please stop by and enter to win a pair of jeans on my site!!

i love those shoes too. Way to go with calling on the date night (I’m going to remember this and try it out). Tracy, you look wonderful in those white skinny jeans.

Thank you and hope it works for you! Let me know!

Very pretty outfit! Hope date night was wonderful, and thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

What pretty colors in the blouse, and I really like the shoes! You are fortunate to have a husband who notices your clothes and compliments you on them.
My youngest brother went to CA to visit friends years ago and decided to move there. He has been out west for 14 years and now lives in Las Vegas. There is so much to do and see out there, and he gets to travel for work. My mom misses him; he does visit us once, maybe twice a year. He is successful, and probably would not have had the experiences he has had had he stayed here in Ohio. It was the best move for him.
So glad you had a great getaway!

Thank you, for sharing the story of your brother. We as parents have to give our children wings. We are lucky to live in an age where there is skype! Should he decide to make that move i will be happy for him as I know that he will thrive in a way he can’t here.

Love the outfit! I think white jeans are the new blue jeans! I am grateful for mine!

Yes, I am thinking the white skinny’s will tuck nicely into boots for fall/winter and plan to keep them out.

I need to invest in another pair. When I go to wear them, they are in the hamper!

I have straigt legs and skinnys so think I am set there… Yes, if you were them that much two would be great!

I love green and plaid. You look great! xo

I love the shoes too! Thank you for your sweet comments. Have a great week! ~Ann at Tarnished Royalty

You’re one of the few people I know who knows how to wear plaid without making it look junior or matronly – just perfectly, age appropriately beautiful 😉


Wow, how sweet of you! I hope that I can achieve that with my red plaid pants for Fall season…

Brown and green are great colors together. Those colors, along with the plaid, remind me of fall…but I like how you kept it summer/on verge of fall with the white pants.
Glad you had a good time on your beach vacation! We’re heading back (and have already booked reservations) to our little seaside cabin where we got married, had our honeymoon, and enjoyed a couple of other years vacations there afterward. It’s been a couple of years since we’ve been and I cannot wait to get back. It’s a magical and special place. But we’re not going until our anniversary next July. I’ll have a long time to look forward to and dream about this. ha

Thank you and how wonderful that you get to return there pretty regularly. It’s nice to have a dream that is far off especially of warm vacation as winter approaches. I am hoping my husband’s company offers another contest trip for him to win for this wiinter!

Very nice indeed. All your elements are spot on, and of course he’s completely felled by your beauty. Very clean ideas, and cool and attractive.
