My virtual shopping date:

For my birthday present this year, my mom and stepdad decided that they wanted to outfit me for my brother-in-laws wedding. And because my mom and I can't have real shopping dates, we had a series virtual dates to make this outfitting happen.

Starting with the dress.
I found this at Nordstrom for a steal. We both loved it. It's simple and conservatively edgy---the pleats and exposed metal zipper give it a little funk.

Next of course are these bad to the bone heels.
Nough said.

And my now favorite pair of earrings.
This took the most time because we were originally searching for purple earrings to match my shoes, but do you know how hard it is to find purple earrings with silver metal that don't look tacky or cost half a month's salary? Very hard. So, thanks to J Crew, we both agreed these worked very well (and the best part is that I will wear them again and again and again and again and again....okay you get my point).

And to tie a bow on it...

This crazily beautiful scarf

And matching purple clutch.
Again, hats off to Amazon. 70% off, just like my heels. Yes, "70%"!

The nice thing about all of these goodies was that we got almost every one of them on sale and we stayed within our budget. But the best thing about this virtual shopping experience was that we bonded almost like we would in person...because all of the calling, texting, & emailing of the options kept us in touch on a daily basis (yeah we became slightly obsessed). We just had so much fun planning this entire outfit together! And I haven't shopped for a complete outfit (head to toe) in like ten years, it felt indulgent, slightly shallow, but so totally fun! Thank you mama =). I like being gurrrlfriends ;). xo

Date Night

And guess who forgot their camera? But guess who's hubby has an Iphone? (Hence the blurrrrr...)

They gave us our own little private nook, it was so romantic

If you live in Dallas and you are looking for a super charming, romantic restaurant, St. Martins is the place to go. The food and wine is delicious. The champagne brie soup is my favorite. Mmm. We've been here several times for special dates and we think this is Dallas' best kept secret. Aaand...they're part of, so we always use a coupon.

My body thanks me.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love fresh, perishable food? I had to take pictures of my breakfast and lunch because it's just so pretty in it's raw form. And I wanted to say again how good I feel when I'm packing in the fruits and veggies.

Velvet Angels

My mama has outfitted me for my brother-in-laws upcoming wedding. And I just HAD to share my heels with you.
Velvet Angels (at 70% off!). Are these not bad to the bone?!

And you may think I'm lying, but they are surprisingly comfortable! The suede cushion, the yummy leather, and the 1&1/2 inch platform make them very walkable. More of the outfitting adventure to follow...
