Another blue and black outfit, I know. It can't be helped. Let me explain.

Earlier this afternoon, my husband surprised me with a "let me take you out to a nice meal tonight." I was extra delighted. He chose a swanky restaurant and made reservations. He told me to dress up nice. I swooned (because I was even more delighted). This dress was on my "to wear on special occasions" list, and since today was a super romantic day, I really didn't have a choice, did I now?

I wouldn't have worn a cardi over this normally, but it's still cold outside. I also realize now that I could've done something else with my hair, but I was running late [what's new] and was really more concerned with my makeup. Speaking of which, I was thinking about doing some reviews on makeup and other beauty products. Would you be interested in hearing me rant about those?

  1. I LOVE LOVE this dress! I saw it at Target too and didn't buy it, but now I'm kicking myself for that! It looks so great on you! And I'm loving your nail polish.

    I think makeup product reviews would be great!

  3. Looking good, girl! I love that dress. I can't believe you got it at target. My target wouldn't have something that cute. :( Have a great day!

  6. I saw that dress at Target and almost bought it! Not sure if to be happy or sad about that:

    Sad: because that dress is awesome and I love it!

    Happy: because I don't think I could have worn it better than you! It looks amazing with that belt!

  9. Great outfit! Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog :)

    It's always nice to get a surprise from the hubby, or in my case boyfriend.

    I'm always interested to hear good makeup tips! I'm trying to learn more but it's really just trial and error for me at this point and sometimes I end up looking like a clown.

  10. I love the whole look but I'm seriously lusting over that belt! Is it new? Can it still be mine? If it can't I suppose I can be satisfied looking at your lovely face in it!
