I was so excited to do another Fashion Friday post! As I was getting dressed for a date with Brandon, I asked him to snap a few pictures so I could share them with you. Unfortunately, midway through this impromptu shoot, Brandon put the bins out front and Duke made a mad dash outside… we safely returned him a few minutes later, but that was the end of the photography. C’est la vie!
This outfit is a go-to for me for winter date nights. This year has been pretty mild, so I have been trying to wear a skirt or dress with thick, opaque tights once a week. It allows me to mix up my winter wardrobe and break out of the boots-and-jeans rut I fall into. Plus, I love the look of a dress, tights, and ballet flats a lå Mimi Thorisson.
My dress is from Ann Taylor and it was a steal at $15. It is thick enough for winter, but I think it will also work in spring without the tights. The flats are by French Sole, and one of my favorite pairs of shoes. For our date, I wore a black trench coat and bright pink scarf – and left the balloon at home!
