I was immediately smitten with this last one and its creamy shades of cappuccino, cream, peach, and pistachio, so I used it as inspiration for my date outfit.
Caramel cardigan: J Crew ($25)
Pistachio ruffle lace top: Ralph Lauren via Lord & Taylor ($15)
Cream pleated skirt: Anthropologie ($35)
Tan belt: J Crew ($12)
Tan loafer pumps: Nine West ($40)
Peach floral barette: J Crew Factory ($6)
Excuse the awkward no-arms pose, I wasn't intending on wearing the cardigan, but it was freezing outside!
Dinner was spaghetti and meatballs, spinach salads with feta, red wine, and macaroons for dessert!
We watched Frederico Fellini's "8 1/2" after dinner (no, not the really sexually weird movie 9 1/2 weeks, that's totally different), and it was interesting, although perhaps a poor choice for my travel-weary husband, who kept falling asleep despite his best efforts to convince me that he was enthralled. Ah, c'est la vie - it was still a great night.
And now I'm off to drown myself in cough syrup and fantasize about this workday quickly coming to an end... Happy Monday!
