date dresses

As many of you know our Saturday evenings are reserved for Date Night.  No matter how crazy our week is, I can count on getting dressed up, a yummy dinner and uninterrupted conversation.

Scott took these before our last 3 dates and I thought they would be fun to share not because I look perfect (I resisted the temptation to photoshop out some wrinkles) but because I hope that they inspire you to have fun mixing things up this summer.

Week #1 dress: Kayce Hughes, ring Kate Spade (old), wood bangles Kayce Hughes, bamboo clutch Glorinha Paranagua (10 years old).

Week#2 dress: vintage, metal clutch: vintage, bracelet via my mother in law and ring: Forever 21(this year).

Week #3 dress: Kayce Hughes, bamboo clutch Glorinha Paranagua, red bangles: Forever 21 a few years ago, ring:Kate Spade

My top three ways to add a little fun to your outfit this summer...
1. Grab some nail polish or lipstick in a color that makes you smile but might be a little bolder than you usually wear.
2. Wear two more bangles than you usually would.
3. Wear a giant cocktail ring.  Many of my favorites are from Forever 21 and cost under $5.

So this summer I hope that you have fun getting dressed up!

Adorableness!! Great tips, and how tiny is your waist?? I'll be in Chatty next week and can't wait to check out your store!

Nice! Love those glossy red bangles. So weird that you should post this post, as I recently bought a load of dresses at the G'will - dresses that I would never normally wear. But at eight bucks a pop, why not? Halters, strapless, netting petticoats - and a big pink flower hairclip from F21. I've had so much fun getting dressed up on Saturday nights and going to the free big band dances at Centennial with my husband. Guys love dresses! He always tells me that...
