Since February is the month of Valentine’s Day (as well as the Oscars, hurray!), Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget) and I thought it was a good time to devote a “How I Wear My” post to a Date Night Look.
With the cost of babysitting so high here in Brooklyn—I ask you, where are all the enterprising teenagers?—I feel like when I do go out it’s not with my husband, it’s on a date with my mom friends. We usually opt for local bars or restaurants, which makes for interesting people watching. Is it just me or are there a ton more tattoos on people anymore? Also, what is up with the full-beard/watchman’s cap/lumberjack look these 20-something guys in Brooklyn are into? Is it a New York thing? Do they look like that where you live? I just can’t get into it.
But I digress.
While my mom friends and I are not trying to meet anyone—or are we?—I still want to look nice and this is an outfit I’d wear for drinks with my favorite mom friends. Make mine champagne!

My favorite thing when arranging this post was seeing how everybody’s Date Night looks were so different from one another but every single lady found a way to infuse some glamour into their outfits, whether their dates were casual or dressy occasions! Check them out!

Thank you to all the fine foxes who participated this month and do stop by Adrienne’s to see what other Date Night looks she’s put together!
Also, click here to see the amazing Sheree of It’s Not That Deep featured in The New York Times Fashion & Style section! Adrienne introduced me to her blog last month and I am always inspired by her style so I’m super excited for her! Right on, Sheree!
It’s probably not news to you that Pantone has declared Emerald the color for 2013 (although I have to ask, who made them the Kingmaker of Color?) and while we like that shade we are checking our closets for any tone of that quintessential spring color. Please join us next month for “How I Wear My: Green.” Send a picture to Adrienne or me by March 5, 2013. From Olive to Apple, from Peridot to Kelly, all shades of green are welcome!
