Date night outfit

DSC03952  Date nights are usually pretty casual for my husband and me, but since the nights have become warmer, I have been reaching for my heels. It’s a funny little thing, how a pair of shoes can instantly lift your mood (and height!). We ventured out for some Greek food the other night, and topped it off with delicious orange italian ice for dessert. I am so grateful for warm, summer evenings, they are quite possibly one of my favorite things.

Music in Me

DSC03368I love prints. The funkier the better. This casette print skirt totally makes my day. I want to make it my uniform for this summer. It is so cute. It makes me want to dance all the time. Plus the flare on this skirt adds to it’s playfulness. I plan to spend this weekend with the husband by the lake and I have a feeling this skirt will put a musical spell on him.  🙂 Continue reading

Pant style

You have seen my love for prints lately. After talking about prints on skirts (here & here), let’s talk about pants. Printed pants are a very cute invention. They are versatile enough for both business and leisure. For a casual look, I pair mine with a simple tee and I am ready for a day of summer fun. I love printed pants. Pick up a pair with an elaborated print on a neutral color for versatility.
