Out With My Girls








Top: Forever 21 | Skirt c/o Conversation Pieces | Shoes: ZaraPurse: Cuore and Pelle | Necklace: Mimi Boutique | Bracelet: Olive + Piper

This is one of those outfits I’d wear for a date night with the husband or for girl’s night with my girl friends.  This weekend, me and some of my best girl friends are having a girl’s night with good food, drinks, dancing, chatting, laughing and more.  I’ve always grown up being a part of groups of girl friends… A. Crew, P.Crew, Summer Crew… I was in a lot of Crews.  I am so grateful that I can trust my husband completely to watch Austin for an evening… I know many women who can’t trust their baby Daddy’s to watch their baby solo and I just think that’s crazy.  I guess I’m pretty lucky that my husband is such a super Dad.  We’re also having one of our semi-annual clothing swaps which should be a lot of fun.  I’ve been spending the past few weeks cleaning out my closet and really, the best part of getting rid of clothes, is making space for new ones, HA!  ;)  Also, a brand new state of the art library is opening up this weekend walking distance from our house, there will be an ice cream social, pony rides, and so much more to celebrate the grand opening.  Never thought I’d get so excited about a library opening… but it will be just another place that we can take Austin to run around in, storytime, and to play in (quietly).  :)

Just wanted to send a big thank you to all those who voted for me in the Chippmunk Expert Shopper Contest… I was 1 of the 5 finalists in the first round!  Crossing my fingers I win the second round!

Also, I came in second place in the June ChicTrends Contest which I was pretty stoked about too.  Word on the street that is they might have a designer shoe contest coming up… who doesn’t love designer shoes??!  I can’t wait to enter that one!  ;)

And don’t forget to set a reminder on your phone every hour to VOTE for me in the Wallis Summer Style Contest!  ;)

You have until June 23 to shop the current Golden Tote sale, where you can pick 1-2 items and get surprised with a “tote” of other fashionable items for a REALLY good price!  Sign up here!

Oh and my first ever Instagram giveaway for a lime green maxi skirt from So Kate Boutique ends tonight at 11:59PM CST.  All you have to do is follow, repost, and tag to enter to win!

OK, I think that’s all the “news” for now.  Go and enjoy your weekend and as always, thank you for reading!!  :)

    Love the outfit, love that your hubs is a good daddy (my kid has a good daddy AND a good step-daddy– I’m so lucky!), congrats on winning, good luck on future winning, and I entered the giveaway!

  2. Love the print on this skirt and how you paired it with the looser fitting tank top. Hope you have an awesome weekend away with the girls. Can’t wait to see what you bring back from the clothing swap!


  3. I am in love with that skirt, and how you typed the necklace to subtly tie in! Good luck in the next Chippmunk round, I’ve been voting for you on all of them.

  4. Date night with the girls is always so much fun. Like you said, it’s great that your husband is so competent to watch your little boy!! Love those shoes. That white strap across the toes made me take a second look. They are cute!!!

  5. I don’t find many prints that I love but this skirt? LOVE! So, so pretty on you!
    And congrats! I voted every time you reminded me too! Yay you. xo

  6. What a cute and colorful skirt!! I’m excited to see what you’ll get in that golden tote! I love how they call it the “golden”, it makes it so mysterious yet exciting- like finding a golden egg on Easter! hehee :)


  7. You are way too adorable – such a perfect outfit for a day with the ladies. This skirt is fantastic and I’m loving the colors! Great heels too :) Happy happy weekend!

  8. Gorgeous outfit! I adore that floral skirt. Gosh, I get so giddy over Summer attire. So bright, colorful, and happy. You look great and of course love the shoes. I actually have the black color of that style en-route.
