Weekly Wears: Date Night

I really love vacationing with my whole family.  We very much treasure our time together.  That being said, as soon as we got back from our trip, Johnny and I sort of ran out of the house to take advantage of some very nice ALONE TIME.  You know, some ADULT TIME.  (<--not what you are thinking, dirty bird...)  The time where you sit down and have coffee and just sigh together.  Knowing, with just a look, that your other is enjoying the silence and the sitting still every bit as much as you are. 

  Dress/slip & Sweater: Urban Outfitters;  Scarf: birthday gift (from Target, I think);  Tights: Target;  Shoes: vintage;  Purse: Dear Creatures (a very special and thoughtful birthday gift from the Haddoxs)

That night we crashed hard, as if pausing for a second allowed all of the exhaustion catch up with us.  That was okay, though.  It was a very good night's sleep.  :)  xoxo Katie

  6. I would love to have a date night again soon! Like you said, I love my family but sometimes I would just like to sit and sip coffee or eat a meal without worrying about crayons falling on the floor or what happened to "taggie." lol. You looked lovely! You're hair is just amazing, I'm so jealous! ^_^

  8. i know what you mean about adult time. my husband and i recently took a weekend getaway to the mountains. it was the first time we had been alone more than an hour or so since our youngest son had been born, over a year ago. for most of the ride we just sat in silence. it was amazing.

  16. Your outfit is so cute and you are definitely a hair style genius. I am really enjoying your tutorials on elsiecake (although I suck at this kinda stuff, and it almost never works, trying is fun as well).

  17. hahaha "dirty bird"!
    you are always super cute, Katie, and I admire that along with admiring how much work you and Johnny put into your marriage. Going out and having that alone time is so important, and I thank you for constantly reminding me of that. Huge stuff for successful marriages!

  31. My friend just recently told me about your blog, and I have to say I'm hooked. I enjoy seeing what outfits and new things you will end up posting! I'm in total agreement about your hair style - I think a video on how you did it would be fantastic! Thanks for sharing pieces of your life with so many others :)

  32. Your hair looks absolutely stunning. I've seen tutorials for that style on Pinterest, but I've never been brave enough to try it.

    Kudos (:

  34. i never can get over your hair cuteness!! and that is some serious shoe cuteness, too.

  35. Oh my goodness! I am so excited to see you wearing this dress. I just purchased it a week ago, and I've been trying to figure out how to style it. Although I'll probably swap the colored sweater for a black one (shocker, hahaha) I love what you did. I was trying to make the dress look less slutty since it's see through in the middle. haha. <3
