We've had a week-long window with him home though, so we jumped at the chance to spend a few hours away before our son heads out again. And obviously we were quite giddy with the opportunity!
Our nights out are usually fairly casual, but especially so in this crazy Texas heat. You'll find me in gauzy skirts or shorts most weekends, and I loved how easily this pair dressed-up. Mr. SP usually waits to get dressed for the night until he sees what I've got on, and I believe his exact response was, 'Oh sweet, you're just wearing shorts?!'
Of course I had to clarify that there's a difference between cut-off shorts and flip-flops, and darling scallop-hemmed shorts and heels. I mean, I'm wearing shorts...but not shorts. ;) #girllogic
Fit Tip: I sized up to a small in the shorts for more drape, but am wearing my usual XS in the top.
Looks easy and playful, right?! Yeah, that's because you can't hear the heaving grunt he made when he caught me!!
All four times it took us to get it right!! Clearly we don't have a future on The Bachelor.
He may have popped a hernia, but I sure had fun! We're taking advantage of some more free hours tonight, and hitting up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale one last time before it goes live to the public Friday morning (i.e. when everything sells out!). I'm a little nervous...the man likes to shop! (See what he's liking below.)
What's your Date Night style during the steamy Summer months? What are you most excited about in The Sale this year? I'd love to hear what you've found so far! I'll be back Friday with Round 2 of my Dressing Room Diaries with Mama Sugarplum...see you then!
