Ever since Zack started his MBA program, date nights have become very special. I work at home and am usually by myself (with the pups of course) most of the time. He has class from early in the morning and usually events late at night. When he gets home we shovel down some food and he’s back at it with homework and applying for internships.
We used to go out to eat all the time during the week and especially on weekends, but we just don’t have the time to do that consistently anymore. Now when he says he’s taking me on a date it’s treat! I take a little more time in picking out what I wear AND sometimes even do my hair 😂
This simple black top has the sweetest little neckline and sleeve details! I picked it up from my local Ross for $7.99! WHATTT crazy right? I love wearing black, but I like my black tops to have a little bit of sass to them: lace details, ruffles, interesting silhouettes, or peplums. Since I can’t link my top I linked some super pretty options in the widget below for you to shop! Most of them are perfect for a fall date night 🙂
I am so very proud of Zack for all the work he has put into this program so far. He’s the hardest working man I know and I know it’s because he wants to make a difference and I have no doubt that he will. There have been sacrifices made by both of us and there will continue to be, but I have full faith that the Lord has a plan and that this will be 110% worth after the 2 years!
This perfect little black dress is so twirl-worthy! I am a firm believer that every woman should have a dress that makes them want to twirl. It just makes you feel good! When you first see this dress you may think date night, but I can see this dress down with cute sandals for a more casual weekend look.
Wanna know a secret? This dress is actually a beach cover-up and is completely sheer! I saw this tucked away on the clearance rack at a local boutique in Athens called The Indigo Child and just fell in love! Of course its perfect for the beach or honeymoon, but it was too beautiful to save for just vacation so I immediately started thinking of all the ways I could style it as a dress. I layered this dress over a fitted black pencil skirt and a black bandeau bra to be fully covered. I think you could also layer a dress like this over black skinnies and for fall! While this dress was a sale rack find, I found a few great options for you that are very similar and are actual dresses. This one is available in limited sizes and is almost identical; however, this one is available in all sizes and is ONLY $27!!
A little black dress is the perfect canvas for a cute clutch or statement shoes like these. These are so fun! I couldn’t wait to take them out for a spin when I finally received them in the mail. One of my favorite stores to shop great trendy shoes is Charlotte Russe. I’ve had so many pairs that have lasted me years and are so inexpensive! I also have these lace up block heels (styled in last week’s blog post). These tassel wedges are left in only one size, but there are so many more great wedges to choose from.
