Date Night Outfit + Thank You

June 24, 2015

Can we talk about Zara for a moment? It was my favorite store in NYC. I was in three story heaven while there and am now seriously mourning that I don’t have one here in Tulsa. I’ve always been a bit afraid to order online because the times I have, I haven’t had great luck with sizing. While there I bought several things and could have bought so much more. They just have so many good things! I digress…

Here is what I did buy – this amazing gingham halter peplum top and these black cropped pants. When I bought them I jokingly told Russ he was going to have to take me on a date, so I would have an occasion to wear them together. Little did I know that shortly after we got back he would get a promotion at work, giving us a great reason to plan a date night and celebrate. I shared a picture on Instagram and mentioned how proud I was of Russ. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all. It was so fun to have such a neat response, not only from our friends and family here locally, but also from all my blogging friends. When I started this blogging journey, I never imagined having a community of women who would cheer me on through infertility treatment, work promotions, become travel buddies and resources, and more. So thank you. Thank you for becoming my friends. gingham top, zara black culottes, pink heelsgingham top, black culottes, date night look gingham top, black culottes, floral clutch, statement earrings gingham top, black culottes, floral clutch gingham top, black culottes, pink heels, floral clutch gingham top, black culottes, pink heelsScreenshot 2015-06-22 07.26.41

    Yaay to life’s trials and tribunals and to the woman and the community who support us unconditionally! I hear you exactly on that! Everyday I feel bogged down about dressing, some nice woman would randomly share a positive comment that builds up my courage again! Coming to your outfit, While, I cannot pull off this crop top, I love how you managed the proportion with the high waisted pants! They work perfectly with the amazing dash of pink!
