Always close your tabs ladies! I had this post all up and ready and totally posted. I had been working on it on a different computer, then I finished it last night. When I opened the first computer, it reverted to draft and deleted all my finishing touches and writing from last night! Arg! This is me trying to remember what I wrote and add everything that took me an hour to do in the 10 minutes I have before work! But I learned a lesson. Save. Save again. Then, for heaven's sakes close out your tabs and exit the internet if you are working on two computers! 
This was a date night outfit from a couple weeks ago. We went on a double date with friends. Everything around here is pretty casual, but our dates are so few and far between I still wanted to get dressed up. I compromised by wearing jeans, but dressing them up with these adorable heels and a sequined top.

We ended up going to a restaurant about 45 minutes from where we live. They had delicious cocktails and serve interesting food pairings. Matt had alligator and I had a southwestern shrimp mac and cheese (Yum!). Too bad they weren't serving kangaroo at the time, but that is always a reason to make us go back!

  2. Your sequin tank is awesome! :)

    I've never eaten kangaroo - doesn't feel right eating the animal on our coat of arms, haha! But lots of people try it when they come here to Australia. You can even buy roo burgers/sausages in the supermarket.

    Thank you for the link up!

  16. Alligator and Kangaroo? I'm not sure if your joking or serious. I've never heard of people eating that before. So interesting. Anyway, you look gorgeous in this outfit! I love your sparkly chevron tank and mojo jacket!

  20. I hate it when things like that happen. You go to sleep confident that everything is done and you wake up to mayhem. This is seriously the perfect date night outfit. Love the chevron top.

  21. Oy vay! I can relate to your computer frustration. Been there, done that. What a fabulous date night outfit. I think my husband take me out more if I tried a sassy little combo like this. Tried to determine the fabric of the jacket...is it cloth? You look super duper scrumptious and your southwestern mac and cheese sounds almost as delicious.

  23. Oh my, that's so easily done. Reminds me that I must back up my blog this week! The chevron sequin top is fabulous and perfect for a date night. I've not had alligator but I've had ostrich which is quite gamey and less fatty than beef steak. Um... I'm hungry now!

  28. Ugh, loosing posts is the worst! You look fantastic though! Love the jacket and outfit.

  29. That has happened to me too. I work between 3 computers, though I usually use my main laptop when I am writing my posts, but yeah it happens. This date night look is so sleek (that kinda rhymed). Though this outfit is mainly monochrome, the textures and neutral patterns via the tank, stilettos and clutch make it much more special! And I too enjoy Lauren' series that she does!
