Valentine's Day date outfit

Hello lovelies!  As promised, here is my Valentine's Day outfit!  It was quite well received by the Pants Monkey (thanks again Megan and Nora!).  These pictures just don't do it justice.  I've been using a different photo editor too lately and I don't like it as much, so I think that I'll be going back to what I know works.  I think you get the general idea here anyway!


We had the most amazing dinner.  It's a place in NE Minneapolis called The Butcher Block.  They are authentically Italian and so fantastic.  I was mildly nervous before we went because I read some unfavorable reviews online, though I take that kind of thing with a grain of salt, but I had no reason to be nervous, the food was amazing, our service was great, we had a wonderful experience.  It was rather spendy, but we knew that going in.  Like I said yesterday, it's one of our few treats during the year.


 No outfit pictures today.  My boss and I are doing some major cleaning in our 2nd floor area of our office in preparation for a big construction project.  While I didn't totally dress down today, my outfit is nothing special!  I'm glad I had my date night outfit to share with you all!


Speaking of outfits, I found one on Pinterest that I think I can totally do, and just might try it out on Friday because it's a little more casual.  I'm excited to give it a try anyway.  I swear Pinterest is just more and more addictive every day I go on it.  I try to only allow myself about 20 minute a day!

Outfit rundown:
Blouse and skirt - two birds via b (a resale shop)
Belt - unknown
Shoes and necklace - Maurices
Nylons - Target
Bag - Fun Sisters

    1. Thanks! If you like Italian food, give the Butcher Block a try - it is spendy though so be prepared for that! So worth it though!

  8. This is a super Valentine's outfit. Nothing like a smart pencil skirt to dress up for a date. I spend too much time on Pinterest, but it's just got so many ideas and cool stuff.
