The Cutest Top for a Night Out

September 15, 2017

This is the cutest top for a night out! I love the polka dots and the neckline. The long sleeves paired with the cold shoulder make if work for fall while still giving it that special something for a date night or girls night out. The price is friendly too which I always appreciate for a good quality piece. We are grabbing Mexican with our friends and kiddos this Saturday, and if I get brave enough, I might just wear it with Ivy. I have kind of decided to just wear this type of thing regardless, because if I don’t, they hang unworn.

Have you been following along on Instagram lately? I’ve been having some fun conversations over there that really have me thinking and excited. I shared a more personal post on my way home from fashion week just expressing that I wasn’t sure I was cut out for it. I left feeling like there was so much hustle, so much comparison (mainly on my part), so much stress. And frankly it didn’t make me feel great about myself. Don’t get me wrong, it was amazing! And there were great parts too. It just made me realize as I headed home to my sweet husband and Ivy Jean that maybe I put too much emphasis and stress on my clothes and my Instagram feed when they don’t matter as much as I think they do. Russ and Ivy don’t care about them, and more importantly neither does Jesus.

Anyway, I never want my blog or my Instagram to make anyone feel less than perfect or like I have it all together. Because I sure don’t. I struggle with all the same thoughts and things that everyone does. I wonder if I am a good mom some days. I feel like my clothes are all wrong sometimes. I think we all do. To that end, I’m going to try to share a few more “everyday” type looks on my IG feed. I also wondered if you all would like some try on sessions on my stories? Just trying to think of more ways to connect in a real life way. Let me know what you think or if you have other ideas!

    You look beautiful! I wish I could find that bag, I really want it! I don’t think I’ve seen it in store either ๐Ÿ™

    I’m happy that there are a few bloggers that are going back to making Instagram fun and less perfect. I used to enjoy IG until about a year ago, and now it just all seems so fake that I’ve stopped posting as often. Keep it up Amy Ann! I love the real ๐Ÿ™‚

    The neckline detail on this top and the cold shoulder make it so feminine.

    Beautiful top, Amy Ann! Loving this cobalt blue color on you. This would be perfect for a date night! I love that you’ve opened up a bit on Instagram about your NYFW experience. I feel that way sometimes when visiting a big city and spending a night out- even when it’s not fashion week! There are so many people out there who are much more glamorous than I could ever be, and I love your perspective about it not being important- especially to Jesus, who matters most! Love your heart! Have a fabulous weekend.

    That top is so cute! It can be hard with a little one deciding what to wear and not to wear when you are out with her. Luckily that is all temporary! Have a great weekend!

    I always love polka dots and the neckline on this top is just too fun! Love how your handbag is a perfect match for the top, too! Have a great weekend, Amy Ann!

    xo, Rachel

    I love your honesty, Amy. I have to admit that I get caught up in all the excitement and glam of watching everyone at fashion week, but I don’t know if I’m cut out for it. It sounds crazy and far above what I fashion….
    But you are so down to earth and reasonable—that’s why I love reading your blog!
    Have a blessed weekend!

    I get the same way too sometimes and then I look at my life and realize there are far more important things. I think you are doing awesome Amy Ann and I love how you keep it real! I would love to see more of your everyday outfits!

    Love this color combo and about ig feeds and all. Yes they are not that important, so just enjoy blogging and your family :).

    I’m all about try-on sessions on stories. They’re so fun! You should definitely do them!

    Such a pretty color on you too and I LOVE the bag!! I saw a picture of you with Dawn Lucy from Fashion Should Be Fun, you looked amazing at NYFW!!!! Have a most beautiful weekend!!

    This top looks great with your gray jeans. I know what you mean about fashion week and agree that everyone has self doubt to some degree (some people just hide it better than others!) I think IG try-on stories are fun and enjoy doing them myself. It’s so much less stressful than trying to capture the ‘perfect’ photo, too.

    Dear Amy, you’re always amazing me with your timeless elegance and such a modern take on all of the outfits! Your top is so cute and yes, this is a great outfit for a date night out.

  • Reply Louis Dupond September 15, 2017 at 1:00 am

    A very nice outfit with a great top!

  • Reply Mica September 15, 2017 at 12:21 am

    I smiled at your outfit because I’m wearing a navy polka dot top today too – mine is just a casual tee though ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know fashion week isn’t for me as I don’t do crowds but I’m sad that it wasn’t an entirely positive experience for you – I was sure you’d have a lot of fun being there with your mum and attending parties and shows. Things do change when you become a mum I think!

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far ๐Ÿ™‚
