Even though we have basically finished remodeling our entire home, it seems that there is still a never ending list of projects that need to be done. So after a long Saturday spent painting and doing chores, J and I decided that we wanted to savor what was left of the gorgeous day and enjoy a nice dinner out on a patio somewhere. So with that, we settled on a little place called Pago-small and quaint with delicious farm-to-table food and a sweet outdoor dining area perfect for such a balmy night. And apparently Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy) had the same idea, as he was seated at the table right next to us. 🙂
Because our date was sort of an impromptu affair and I didn’t have a whole lot of time to get ready, I ended up putting my hair up into the ever popular sock bun, and threw on a really easy (and comfy) silk color block dress, then topped off the look with fun accessories-my spike heels and a pair of feather earrings paired with some super long chain earrings that I can’t get enough of!! It was a look that felt just right for the evening and one of the easiest date night outfits I have thrown together in quite some time. And not only that, but I managed to cover up the stubborn white paint leftover on my legs and arms from the day’s earlier project.

I am a huge fan of Forever21 but know that it can be a very overwhelming store to shop. However, there are a couple of tricks to follow to help you avoid the poorer quality merchandise so you can take advantage of the good stuff. One specific trick I have found to help me navigate Forever21 is to look at the fabric content on the tags of some of the seemingly nicer garments. The dress that I am wearing in this post is silk and was under $30-which is a pretty tough find to beat. And there are actually a lot of gems like this scattered throughout the store if you just take a little time to seek them out-which of course is challenging, but definitely well worth it in the end.
Happy Monday everyone!
