Date Night

Hey all!
I think a more appropriate title for this outfit would be "The Date Night That Never Happened." Last weekend I went to Pennsylvania for a work trip. I preached at a church on Sunday and was flying back to Elgin on Monday night, so Chandy and I were going to do something fun on Sunday night. Our date nights usually include burgers and Skee-ball. 

I packed this outfit so that I could wear with my lovely new skirt that My Sister's Closet sent my way. I probably would never pick this shape of skirt out my own - I'm usually all about the fit and flare, so to wear this more straight style that is tighter made me feel a little self-conscious. But then I just thought to myself "YOLO!" I liked the color of the skirt a lot, so I was going to wear it out for a rare date night with my King Goober ("Honey, what should I call you on my blog?" This is the answer that I get.) 

Only that date night NEVER HAPPENED. Instead we got some snow and had to stay in and watch Sherlock - not necessarily a bad thing. It was wonderful way to spend an evening; only it didn't require a skirt and heels!

So, when I came back to Elgin, I got one of my housemates take some shots of me before she and I had a housemate date night. So, I guess this skirt did get to have a date night after all! 

Target top - Thrifted ($1.50)

The color of that skirt is to die for! I don't blame you for wearing it without a real purpose. Sorry your date night fell through! But hey, a night in with tv is still better than nothing, right?

That pencil skirt is stunning on you Laura! Definitely very Joan from Mad Men. Bummer about the snow, but like you said not always a bad thing to cuddle up in front of a good show :-)
