A Sort-of Outfit Post

I can happily say that we ventured out of the house this weekend.
I was NOT going to let these lingering allergies stop me no matter what, and as a matter of fact, I ran ELEVEN MILES this weekend. Don't get too impressed, though. I kind of thought that my lungs were collapsing after the first set of six. I guess a week off and decreased lung capacity will do that to ya.
Let's just skip to the exciting part, shall we...

Date Night!

Have you ever had plans to go somewhere for dinner, but you left it up to your husband {or significant other} as to whether it was a date night or a night to invite friends? You know you want it to be a date night, and yet you still put the question out there. You can't even though you want to be mad when they make a decision other than you wanted, but the game of it, I daresay, makes the date night more worth it when it's their choice. Hey, a little mystery is always fun in a relationship.

First, I have to start with the outfit. What is it everyone calls it? OOTD?
Anywho, I think it was perfect for a Spring evening in Manitou Springs, and I felt a bit sassy pairing my Frye boots with this demure little dress. Wanna guess where the dress is from?

Will: That's a fun little dress...
Me: It's Walmart, baby!
Will: I like the way your butt looks when you walk in it.
So yep, I pair $300 boots with a $12 dress. If it works, it works.

We enjoyed a nice little walk around one of my favorite nooks of Colorado, Will told me I could buy whatever I wanted from the $10 store {I did get a really cute necklace set}, and then it was dinner at the Stagecoach Inn. Homey, really fresh local ingredients, and we made it for Happy Hour!

It was a perfect evening, followed by watching the movie Argo, and my favorite pastime... snuggling on the couch. Thank you to my love, and thank you Miss Kelly for the poncho that kept me warm while we were out! I got so many compliments on it, and I think it was a great way to show Will's photography skills off. I didn't know he had any, but now I know who is going to be capturing the outfits from now on!

I am sorry for so many pictures of myself in one post. I guess we had too much fun with my new camera :)

Linking up with Lisette for I <3 Bloglovin', Sami for Weekend Shenanigans, and Leeann for Monday Morning Gossip. Check out Sharlee's take on The Perpetual Sleepover, and see if marriage has changed you for the good or the bad. I think it allowed me to pick up some good habits, but she's talking about reigning in the fun that they have been having too much of. I am intrigued.

Spread the LOVE.

That is a super cute dress--especially considering that it's from Walmart. The supermarket tends to get a bad rep for their clothes, I know, but I've come across some really cute stuff at Meijer around here (local version of walmart!)

i don't know how you still get that vim and vigor to work out when you're alergic. i'm working on a project that is an office job where i have a 9 to 5, 5 days a week which are SO not me. all i want to do is laying on my bed at the end of the day. haha.

Miss Rachel M. said...

Love the dress! Love seeing pics of you happy (so don't apologize)! Glad you're feeling all better.

Nicole said...

I'm the same way--I'll spend a ridic amount of money on a purse, but the rest of my outfit will be from a clearance rack!

Well OF COURSE I'm gonna LOVE this post. 1) Your outfit is adorable, high five! From Walmart? Double high five. Frye boots? Just fist bump it. 2) The pictures look great. Will of all trades.... Now you have no excuse not to do some more Fashion Fridays.

Courtney B said...

LOVE your outfit! But I'm pissed... everyone I know comes out with the cutest stuff from walmart and I NEVER find ANYTHING. Then again... I don't really shop for myself anymore. Okay, that was a lie. I do... but it's MUCH funner to shop for Mia!
What a perfect date! Someday... we WILL double!
