Where I wore it: Out for hotdogs on a Saturday night

Pardon my french, but holy shit guys, I finally figured out why my photos were looking like absolute crap! Apparently all you have to do these days to figure something out is Google it- who knew? Turns out, it's not my camera, it was Photobucket. Boom. I'm really excited about this- not so excited about going back in and reuploading a few months of posts, but whatever- I'm just happy it's not the more expensive piece of technology that was causing the problem. Oh man, I'm so happy right now!

Anyway, I wore this layered-up look this past Saturday for a hotdog date with my dear husband. This jacket has been getting a lot of use lately, it's perfect for layering over dresses and as an alternative to a cardigan. Oh, and as you can see my hair is still long, I didn't cut it as yesterday's post lead some to believe. I'm just tricky and left it in the faux-bob I created for my latest work project. Also, today is our (Chris and I) nine year dating anniversary, so...hooray for love! Happy Wednesday!

A. This outfit is the coolest! I love EVERY single aspect of it.
B. It's nice when a problem has a simple, non-expensive solution. That's the BEST feeling.
C. Um, at risk of innuendo, I *really* would like to go on a hotdog date with my husband.

Love this so much! You are totally rocking this look (and yes, those jeans)! Congratulations to you & Chris. I guess a hot dog date means the Whole 30 is definitely over!

I love this lace top; the pattern reminds me of bubbles! Those dark wash jeans are also super flattering and dress up the look. Happy anniversary to you and your husband!
