double date

Even better than date night is double date night! The hardest part is finding another couple that you mesh well with but thankfully my boy and my best friend's boy have similar interests in video games and well that seems to carry the conversation far enough! The sweet ML of Twenty York Street gave me this beautiful skirt as a birthday gift and I thought it would be the perfect ensemble for dinner at Blue Cactus followed by cheap wine and games night.  I added some gold accessories and my strappy leopard heels to punch up the outfit.  Even better than dressing for date night is picking out the perfect outfit for double date night (because let's be honest women dress for other women!)




I didn't realize until looking at this photo how badly I need a pedicure!

Skirt- Banana Republic (gifted from ML); Dress (worn as a top)- Thrifted; Necklace & Shoes- Aldo; Bracelet- A SweeT; Nail Polish- Portobello Pink by Rimmel

  6. Great outfit. Our double date couple is my brother, and his girlfriend. It's helps that my brother, and boyfriend became best friends after we started dating.

  13. cute necklace and love the shoes. the whole outfit looks fantastic! very sweet of ML to give you a skirt!

    double dates are great. but it's true, usually two people are best friends and then the sig o's have to try and find common ground. always a little bit of work.

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
