Date Night in Black and White

Last night, the man and I had a dinner date at Brazikat, a Brazilian steakhouse in the St. Louis area.  Being a vegetarian, this was clearly the man's choice, but thankfully, I still had lots of yummy options.  If you're from the area or planning a visit, let me just say - the grilled pineapple can't be beat!

Blouse:  New York & Company
While the food was delicious and the live music created a wonderful ambiance, my favorite part (besides my great company, of course) was getting a chance to dress up.  The weather was cool, but not too cold, so it was a great chance to wake up the legs from their winter hibernation by baring a lot of leg!

I've had this blouse for a while but have only had a chance to show it on the blog in one grainy photo.  The dramatic ruffle is so lovely, and I find asymmetrical hemlines very flattering.
Jacket:  Target
Booties:  Target (Available here)
Clutch:  Target (Similar here)
I finished the look off with open-toe booties, a printed clutch, and delicate, but slightly tough looking, jewelry.

All in all, I was quite happy with this look.  It has a mix of romance and edge, that I particularly enjoy.

Necklaces:  Target and The Limited

What's more, this outfit was super comfortable.  As I've gotten older, I find comfort increasingly important.  Feeling comfortable makes me feel sexy.  A flowy top like this disguises areas I'd rather not show off a lot while the deep v-neck and short skirt show off assets I love to flaunt.

What makes you feel sexy?  Are you a fan of large ruffles?

P.S.  Are you a closed-eye smiler?  I fight against this every time I take pictures, but it's often the same as pics from when I was a year old - squinty eye smiler for life! ;-)


  1. You looked sexy! What a great outfit! I love that jacket and the way the top is cut. Glad you two had a great time. I mainly do beauty posts. I admire fashion bloggers. HaHa


  2. Quite sexy edge here. Of course, this is edge that isn't over-the-top or extreme. You played this one very well with the jacket, the chic top, this short skirt, and those peep-toe booties. Sweet! And by the way... I have no problem with ruffles- whether it's ruffles on garments or the chips. :)


  3. Thanks Kim! Thanks for stopping by! I could never do beauty blogging! I'm only okay at make-up and horrible at hair! :-)
