Date Night- Leather and Lace

Posted on: March 23, 2014

Well, coated jeans actually, but that didn’t sound nearly as edgie…

This outfit very much reflects my love of feminine with an edge looks and I almost wore more sexy caged sandals, but to be painfully honest, I had played around with pastel blue nail polish and was too lazy to change it… 

Linking up with Visible Monday


I bought this lace tunic top around Christmas time at Ross and gave my dear daughter a duplicate one in white.  It will get a lot of use this Summer, but it’s fun to wear it now when we had a tease of Spring temps…


Whenever I get the magic formula right,  of an outfit with femininity and a touch of edginess,  I always think and quite often use the phrase Ying/Yang, which is why my very astute husband gifted me with this necklace of mother of pearl and onyx.  It was quite fun to wear it knowing the meaning and connection.


I think even the leopard print on the purse was yet another touch of edgy to make up for the fact that I didn’t go with the caged sandals, which my dear husband would have preferred.


My pointed toe pumps are the Comfort plus line from Payless and their name really does fit them…

Dear Readers, I love date nights and the chance to indulge in something fun to wear.  What is your favmorite date night???  

We went to dinner at Fire and Vine and I had a fabulous chicken dish with Truflle Mac and Cheese, which I only ate a few bites of , but it was heavanly…  I would say this restaurant offers a fine dining experience but not a stuffy atmosphere .  Afterwards we went to a late showing of Divergent.  I have to say I really thought it was a great story line and acting and thoroughly enjoyed it..


I am grateful to have a DH who called me Friday afternnon with surprise dinner reservations!  

I am grateful for our bowling on Saturday with our two youngest boys, 18 and 14.  We use to go quite often,but hadn’t gone in a few years..We bowled 3 games and I was actually sore afterwards!!!!

I am grateful that I felt better and began exercising again…

I am grateful that I spent Sunday at a Kids Pallooza art event with a freind and her daughter and my husband and youngest.  

I am grateful that at the event, they had a room of local groups offering Summer Camps and am thrilled that my son is interested in the Triple R Ranch , an overnight weeklong camp….. He will have a wonderful time and it will be the first time away from us…

I am grateful to my DH for cutting up everything for our turkey and green salad dinner night when I had yet another incident of Vertigo (it had gone completely and came back last night, aaagh milder this time…) 

I am grateful that my DH also made me a wonderful Ameretto Sour with fresh squeeze orange juice like they make at Ruth Chris Steakhouse…

Coated jeans are a great look – and you wear them beautifully! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

Adorable outfit! Love the edgy touches! My favorite date with the hubby is actually a daytime date … a drive somewhere. I always like that feeling that we got away, even if it was only for a couple of hours!

A daytime drive sounds delightful! I use to love car trips when my husband use to travel and we all would go with him..not quite a date, but the kids did fall asleep each in their own seats in our 15 passenger van…

You got the mix just right! Very elegant, with just a little toughness to make it all more interesting! Hope you had a lovely date-night!
