Date Night!

Date Night!

As a busy mom and wife, date night is an outing that I both look forward to and sometimes dread. I look forward to time with just me and my boo, trying something new, eating something yummy and having a sitter. There are times I dread it though, because by the time date night comes around, often times I am tired, can’t think of what to wear and the thought of taking it all off (makeup) at night when I get home seems like a chore. That’s when sitting on the couch with take-out sounds like the best of both worlds!

In these cases cute and easy is key! I don’t know about you but I normally live in jeans and a tee when running errands. When 6 o’clock rolls around, date night is an hour away, I have been chasing my daughter, prepping her bag for my sister’s house and I’m dreaming of a shot of espresso. Transforming my current outfit is better than a whole new one. So what do you do?!? Grab a cute jacket, blazer, cardigan or vest, a cute pair of shoes and a night out bag and you’re golden! You don’t need to do much but freshen up your face, put your head in the game and enjoy date night with your honey that sometimes comes few and far in between.
