Not My Favorite

I'm going to be honest, I'm not super in love with this outfit. I hate the shoes that I am wearing. I bought them on an impulse because they are super hot and were at ridiculously cheap price. Now I think they make my feet look 2 sizes bigger than they are. However, I'm posting this outfit because I felt awesome in it. Why? Because the night I wore this Andrew surprised me with dinner and an evening of feeling beautiful. What was so special? Nothing. He told me he loved me 100 times like he normally does, he told me I am beautiful like he normally does. Nothing was out of the ordinary. It was just special to have the time together. We went to dinner at Blanc Burger and came home and cuddled and watched That 70's Show. Totally typical evening but I loved it. Minus the outfit.

Date Night Outfit

Kate Spade Cobalt Purse
Blazer: Target (similar)
Shirt: Target 
Pants: C/O Aeropostale last year (similar)
Bag: Kate Spade
Necklace: INPink (similar)

Side note: The setting sun reminded me that I wish I had my moms red hair. It is so fiery and perfect for her personality. I've considered dying it a more auburn color but I'm too scared to actually do it. I did highlights in my hair once and it took like 2 years for them to be gone and I was OVER them!   photo Sig-09_zps87ca91c7.png Share

  2. You are adorable! try cuffing your pants a little messy so your ankle shows, that might help style the shoes?? Fortunately i have really tiny feet so it's hard for them to look bigger! I think you look amazing as always and I'm glad you felt beautiful in that dress.

    and about your hair? Do it, it's just hair, it grows back.

  6. I actually really like this outfit but I hate when I realize I don't really like something I'm wearing. It's kind of a bummer to have it be a dud.

  9. I actually like it, especially your blazer. I've been wanting a pair of shoes like that but am scared that my feet will look HUGE so maybe I'll stay away ;) I'm a huge yes for dying your hair red, I bet it would be gorgeous on you. Red is harder to strip out though so you have to be sure you want it for a while. Or just dye it from a box ;)

  10. You know the more you talk about Andrew, the more I like him. And I like this outfit. Okay, maybe the shoes aren't the best, but we all are guilty of making those impulse purchases. And I don't care about how much my feet hurt, heels just always look better. There is nothing I can say or do about it, it is a fact.

  13. I think your hair would look beautiful dyed auburn! And if you hate it, you can always re-dye it back closer to your natural color. :)

  19. i think you would look spectacular with a little red in your hair. in fact, when i picture you away from your blog, i think of you as having reddish hair because it just fits your personality! i say go for it. the one time i've ever dyed my hair i did a red-strawberry blonde shade. it was definitely fun for a while, and then it was gone and my life went back to normal. it was interesting to see how people treated me differently as a redhead than as a blonde.

  20. I am totally obsessed with your purse! I have been looking and looking for a blue purse, but all the ones I love are like 293829382 dollars! I guess I'll have to cave one day and just get one.

  33. I've always thought that if I dyed my hair, I would go red. For now, I am far too cheap to start coloring my hair :)
