You guys, I love this sequin shirt so hard! Unexpected, considering I've owned it for two years and never worn it. A purchase of peer pressure ("oh my gosh you will wear that all the time!") this beauty has languished in my closet for two years because I didn't have the balls (labia?) to wear it.
Enter: capsule wardrobe! Having already worn everything else in my spring wardrobe and wanting something fresh for date night, it was easy to pair the sequins with my beignet skirt and a jean jacket. Throw on boots and anything's an outfit, non?
It was amazing, also, to have a chance to paint the town red (in that get-home-in-time-to-put-the-babes-to-bed kind of way) with my love.
It's good for my soul to know that, even when we act like roomies 98% of the time due to sheer exhaustion, we can still gab for three hours without pause.
It's good for my marriage to get a bit tipsy together and flirt.
And it's good for my kids to know that my marriage comes first.
I just hope my better half doesn't mind too much that so much of date night is consumed by me demanding "take a pic of my outfit!" :)
When was the last time YOU got out? Be honest...
