Date


I have not been on a date in a very long time.  So long that I don't even remember the last date!  But that is about to change.  I put on this lovely flower dress that I purchased years ago to wear to a wedding.  I always meant to hem it a bit higher since I think it's a bit long for my petite frame but I never got around to it.  I could have chosen a bit higher heels but I didn't want to tower over my date.  The evenings have been chilly around here so I decided to grab this cute cardigan just in case I might need it.
I hope that I made my son proud as he escorted me to our first Mother/Son Dinner Dance!

Dress:  Nordstrom (old)
Shoes:  Nine West (old)
Cardigan:  GAP
Bag:  ALDO
Necklace:  Local Boutique
Ring:  Local Boutique

  15. to be honest i am not a huge fan of florals but i love your hair and make up, your eye make up really makes your eyes pop out, the color is stunning i wish i had eyes like yours but mine are simple brown, very common.
    plus the soft waves you sport here look fab on you.
