Date Night Style

Thanks for the love on Little Miss's closet post yesterday....it sounds like many of us are doing some Spring cleaning and organizing! But after a day of purging and projects, I love getting cleaned-up and heading out for a Date Night. Lucky we now have a built-in babysitter! #teenagerperks

With the weather finally warming up, Mr. SP and I headed to one of our favorite spots with a patio...and I didn't waste any time pulling a Spring dress out!

I seem to gravitate to this swingy style for dinner dates (see another favorite here)...the exposed shoulders make it flattering, but the flowy fit allows room for dinner and dessert! It's also easy to dress up or down a bit, and appropriate for most evening parties. I was really surprised by the quality and extra touches, given the price tag! It comes in a lovely black and white floral, but I thought the navy and coral was a fun combo for Spring.

Fit Tip: The dress runs a tad big, but mostly true-to-size...I'm wearing an XS and it hits just above the knee. Since it's a little big for me up-top #noboobs, I wore this strapless bra so it wouldn't show in the armholes.

Don't let Mr. SP's sweetness fool you...he tells the dirtiest jokes!

But he also has the power to make my entire body relax, just by holding my hand.

Mr. SP almost-always opts for jeans and gingham shirt...in fact, his gingham collection rivals mine! One of the great things about Dallas, is pretty much anything goes at most places.

{Where We Ate}

// Ziziki's //
This cozy neighborhood bistro is our go-to date night spot when we want to stay close to home, 
and eat a consistently-good dinner. The ambiance is perfect for dates, but also
inviting for families.

{What's Good}
I'd like to tell you everything on the menu is great, but truthfully we order the exact
same thing every time we go. Literally, every single time. We split a greek salad
with the most-amazing feta, followed by the chicken souvlaki plate. Make sure you ask for
a side of the basil-mint sauce...and leave room for baklava ice cream cake!! #hencetheflowydress

  7. I'm so glad you featured this dress because it's one I was considering for my nieces wedding. It looks short on the models but not on you...I'mnot much taller so I think I'd be ok??

  10. Thank you for sharing the link to "How I curl my hair". I had been wanting to try this style for a while. I went out and got the curling wand and hairspray. I was really excited with how it turned out! I've gotten several positive comments. Thanks so much! Love your blog and read it regularly.
