Details: Friday nights I often feel so worn out that the hubs and I make it a comfy night in with good food and good Netflix. Some Fridays, however, I am rarin’ to go. Yesterday I wore this H&M dress, yet again in the hopes that I would feel like going out after work and it did the trick. Subtle changes made this dress perfect for both work and a night out in my favorite city. Funky flats during the day made for a fun mix of patterns (one co-worker told me I looked like a garden nymph!). While this cardy is usually worn tied at the waist, I didn’t want to obstruct this belt. I don’t wear it nearly as much as I should. I love this woven belt!
For evening I swapped my flats for my favorite cheapie booties from H&M and swapped the cardigan out for a light jacket. It was 54 degrees out so this spring jacket worked well with a heavy scarf and leather globes. I opted for a pop of color in the handbag, plus this one can be worn hands-free so I kept myself available to take a million photos. I am loving breaking in this new camera. Some of my fabulous photos from the drag show coming soon…
I don’t want to boast too much (sigh…), but it’s great nights like this when I’m reminded that I am blessed with the world’s greatest husband. It doesn’t hurt when he makes crock pot lasagna either…
