Dinner Date

April 9, 2012

First – a quick announcement – since my lovely photographer (Joe) broke his hand, my outfit photos will be a little sparse for a few weeks since he can’t focus the lens and shoot with only one hand!

The two of us met for dinner last week because we were exhausted and didn’t feel like cooking dinner after a long week.  I wanted to feel a bit dressed up but since it was a Thursday there was no sense in getting too fancy, so I threw on my leg-lengthening Gap flared jeans, a printed flowy cape-like top, and a hammered metal necklace.  (Joe took this with the automatic lens).

And here’s a glimpse at the delicious food we ate!

(Prince Edward Island Mussels)

( Dry Aged Burger & Duck Salad….. and a portion of fries bigger than my head!  I didn’t even make a dent in the pile!)

    I am excited to see this top, because I just bought one really similar with a blue background and wasn’t sure how to wear it. Now I know :-) Thanks!

    Love your outfit! Those jeans look amazing on you! Hope you had fun on your date. Miss you!!!

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      Thank you! They didn’t used to fit but since my thighs have decreased in muscle mass due to lack of gymtime I can squeeze them on 😉

    Oh no! Poor Joe! Hope he recovers quickly. Loving your bootcut jeans – I forgot how much I like them with heels until I saw this post.

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      He will be ok! Only 2 1/2 more weeks of the cast! Get your bootcut jeans out and style them up, lady!
