..Date Do-Overs

The deets: Express faux-leather jacket; Macy's dress; Target shoes (old); necklace and earrings c/o Trend Snag (giveaway coming soon!); Lancome Violette Croquette & Midnight Rose mixed lipsticks; LOFT clutch; Urban sunnies.

My boyfriend and I don't get to spend as much time together as we would like to due to my work hours and his full time law student/internship status.  The weekends are split between his boys, my girlfriends, soccer games, and other standard adulthood obligations so when a completely plan-free, beautiful, pretend-like-it's-August-in-the-middle-of-October-Saturday came up we envisioned a day spent going on a walk with the pup, a nice jog, and a trip to a DC museum ending with lunch at a new spot.  Que an impromptu trip to Target, my car battery dying in the parking lot, a very very long wait for AAA, cranky, hungry, unshowered, ravenous versions of ourselves ripping into the trick or treat candy just purchased for lunch and you have an absolutely perfect picture of our day-date-fail.  Without wanting to surrender to the day of unfortunate events, I took a power nap, we prettied ourselves up, put on our date faces and decided to try again.  Sushi from the restaurant down the street followed by an over priced movie rental turned out to be just the quality time I was craving.  How were your weekends?

  12. That is what I call a story of heartbreak and success! Car breakdowns are the worst. I was once stranded on the side of an interstate at 10 at night for over an hour and I had to pee...so...bad. Then it cost $600 to make my car run again (and the whole car wasn't even worth $600). So sad. Anyway, I hope your day wasn't quite that tragic. It looks like you bounced back nicely :)

  17. Oh!! Been there. Except we walked out the door to go to dinner and a movie but James locked the keys inside the house. Which meant we couldn't get in the house, or the car. So we sat on the front steps for three hours waiting for someone to come home. He eventually broke into our house and we ordered take out. Miserable
