My post last week on Date Night outfits went through quite a lot of inspirational pins on pinterest. I want to make sure you can see exactly where I was coming from because if you haven't noticed, the most expensive item on my out fit were the 10K gold earrings I want from gilt.com. They are just under $100. I try really hard to keep spending at a minimum these days and only by trends for an inexpensive price, knowing damn well it won't be in my closet long...

Cheezy Broccoli Cauliflour Rice Stove Top Casserole

This, my friends, was a quality day. Despite getting a lovely little Valentine's Day cold from my faux niece (who sneezed in my face), I was able to successfully manipulate a recipe to be completely dairy-free! It came our better than I imagined it would be.

It's last Thursday night, I'm sitting cross legged on my bed staring aimlessly at my closet in complete disbelief that I don't have a single thing to wear for my first date in 2 years - Tomorrow. The amount of panic and frustration I feel with myself is completely overwhelming because I've realized that I've let myself slip somehow. I've not got an item in my closet that's sexy comfy. I've got classy gala, sunday bests, comfy cozy... I've got nothing but outfits for women and nothing what-so-ever to make a man look at me with a seductive eye.

Around 360 minutes is the amount of time I've spent researching, dissecting and archiving outfits specifically for Date Nights. If you follow me on pinterest, I'm sorry, you know I've been on a mission. Not only do I have a board but I've asked 4 of my girls friends and 1 guy friend their opinion on almost each outfit that was saved or pinned.

Exhaustion should be my number one feeling but intrigue has taken over. Different women have a completely unique outlook as to why something is sexy vs cute for date outfits. Men - well, they're on a whole other level. Let's be real here, I trust them but I mostly don't. Haha.

I found a consistent love with black. Black dresses, shoes and bags. Gold is my metal of choice. IT's a trend and I think it's a classy sexy rule to go by. I think I can build a mini-date night unit in my closet out of these.

This afternoon, while hunting for outfits I bought the dress above. I will review and make sure to let you know how it goes. I told you I was on a mission!

I'm dying to know what other women's favorite go to outfits are for casual dates. Do you have a board? Do you have a favorite piece you love more than all the others? Ladies, share your secrets! Us back in the game need your help!

Spicy Zucchini Noodle Shrimp Scampi


You guys, I cooked!

I've been working a lot on my mental well being for the past month and I'm happy to say that I think the final 2015 blues are far away. It makes me joyous knowing I can say that with satisfaction and ease. In the mornings I see sunlight coming through the windows, flowers popping up outside and even though the air is cool it feels fresh and sweet. I can finally break away from my winter soup kick and move on to fresh warm meals for the Spring! Eeep!
