Empty Nest Date Night!

Hello, Darlings!

Someone made a comment that they were worried that when their kids left home they would be bored and lonely, well…. I have to tell you that is NOT the case. My life is one busy OVERLOAD!!!  My son is getting married in two weeks, his twin is moving back home this weekend, the list of “things to do” now pages.  I feel like I am just like the gerbil on the treadmill, round and round and round and round.  My head is spinning and it continues to spin even when I sleep.

When Friday rolls around it would be so easy to just stay home and hibernate.  My husband and I made a commitment that we were going to socialize more and have more DATE NIGHTS.  So this Friday night we ended up on a couples date with some dear friends of mine.  I am so glad we did!  What a great time we had just sitting around catching up.  The food was FANTASTIC!  I personally have been working on “upping my wardrobe game” so I would have fun piece to wear out.

My Date Night Outfit

My date night outfit is a black cold shoulder top with flutter sleeves from Macy’s INC line and cropped capris are the Super Stretch Capris from Soft Surroundings 

Cold Shoulder Top For Date Night

I have really been working on my accessory game.  You know me…. I had to add a little grrr.  I chose this super cute cheetah print Luna Tassell Earrings from Chicos. Loving this gold collar necklace, it is a perfect accessory “staple” to have.  This is Royce Collar Necklace from Chicos

I have never really been a bracelet wearer, but now I am loving them.  Having a great time shopping for bracelets, this one is a collection of bracelets called Luna Bangles from Chicos. I have a feeling these will get tons of wear.

Platform Wedge Sandals

Don’t forget the shoes!  I am still having “foot problems”  so my choice for sandals is the platform wedge. The platform wedge gives me height, style, and comfort.  These are from Kork-Ease.  I purchased them on super clearance and they only had one pair left in my size. That is some kind of shopping karma, it was meant to be!.  Of course, they are animal print, but you can find tons of animal print shoes this fall.  Animal print is HOT trend this fall.

This is my sweet dog, Emma.  Emma thinks she needs to be featured on the blog, that dog even has her pose down.  Emma is featuring black and white cow print.  She is quite the DIVA, takes after her puppy momma.
