take me out tonight

today's post is inspired by true life, because for the first time in I can't even tell you how long, the hubs and I are actually going out on a kids free/adults only date night!!!  words cannot describe my enthusiasm!  pre-children we made it a weekly ritual to "keep the love alive" and it was always nice to decompress from our busy lives and just enjoy some QT with each other.  nowadays, it seems like the only adult conversations we have is if they both happen to fall asleep on a long car ride.  trust me, i'm not complaining.  I wouldn't trade this crazy hectic life of mine for anything, but I am so looking forward to sitting in the pitch black silence that is the movie theater!  I know i know, its not exactly the hottest date night, but lets be honest, i'm 7 months pregnant and all i want is to be snuggled up to a jumbo popcorn and large slushie . . . . . i mean all i want is to be snuggled up to my honey ;) while I chow down on a jumbo popcorn and a large slushie, and probably an assortment of candies!  for me, the theatre is all about looking cute while feeling comfy.  as much as i'd love to go in total bum mode, you always run the risk of bumping in to someone you know and "hot mess"  isn't exactly chic on a Friday night.  bf jeans and a sweatshirt are perfect for accomplishing the comfy and attention to detail like this metallic sleeve and rolled hem polish it out.  fun flats and a bright bag top off the look and leave you plenty of room to pack some extra snacks (which im totally guilty of doing) and a blanket scarf incase you get chilly.

 if the movies are a snooze and you'd rather hit the town, this look is sure to get your party girl juices flowing!  color and layers are my 2 necessities for any dressy occasion.  you want your man looking at you and for all the right reasons!!  so pick a feature you love, and show it off!  for me, its usually all about a lil leg action.  i chose this floral mini and added some edge with a studded denim jacket.  pretty/tough is always a great Friday night combo!  to add an extra pop of color and really elongate the legs, i chose these single strap stilettos.  and no look would be complete without the perfect pout, this shade is incredibly kissable and with a name like "jungle red" you really can't go wrong!!
 
dinner and dancing
 
for the homebody who just wants to snuggle up with her man, why not light the fire (literally and figuratively) and keep each other warm with some hot cocoa and good conversation.  personally this is my kinda night, every night!  date or no date, all i want is an oversized sweater and a comfy blanket paired with a hot bev and a good book.  this knit cardi is great for staying in and even though your sweats may be calling your name, throw your man a bone and pair it over something with a little appeal.  (sweatpants don't exactly scream "come to momma")  keep up the cozy factor with a chunky sock or slipper and a large throw to share, you're sure to be in couple heaven!
