Date Night

So, I decided that I couldn't wait for my tripod, and decided to whip out the 'ole iPhone to take some outfit photos.. because 1. I'm impatient and 2. I'm in love with my new shirt.

Curtis decided we would have a little date night this past Friday, just so we could have a little time to relax and forget about things. I had a test last Wednesday, and he has one this week, so it's been pretty stressful around here lately, not to mention we have house stuff to do on top of it all. So, we went late Friday night (we're night owls..) and ate a little burger joint in front of the theater, and then went to see World War Z. I've never read the book, so I didn't have an expectations for it.. and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. I really did enjoy the whole movie, well, maybe I did laugh out loud a few times at the goofy zombies. Seriously, if anyone else has seen it, PLEASE tell me you laughed at their silly shenanigans when Brad Pitt got all up-close and personal at the World Health Organization. Anyway, it was a fun night, and I'm glad we got to enjoy each other's company alone for a bit.

Blouse: JC Penney | Skirt: A-Town (Austin, TX) | Belt: NY&Co | Flats: Shoedazzle via Plato's Closet

That moment when you do a goofy picture, and it actually turns out decent.. what? This never happens to me! Okay, outfit breakdown time: the blouse, I adore it! I had been looking for an eyelet blouse for so long, and I spotted this one at JC Penney's a couple of weeks ago, but.. I didn't want to spend the money for it. Then, as I was searching through my wallet, I found a long lost JC Penney's gift card, score! So I went back for it and a pair of shorts, both on sale, made me one happy camper. The skirt's one of my favorites still, it's just so comfy and the pop of coraly-red is something I don't often wear, so it's always fun. Finally, the flats. I've had them since January, but I hadn't ever really worn them. They were a bit tight on my feet (curse you wide feet!), so I always put them aside for another pair. But I was bound and determined to wear them this night, so I did, and I eventually stretched them out.. thank goodness!

Bleh, I want my tripod back after looking at the quality of these photos, not to mention I'm out of practice when it comes to taking outfit photos, oh noes! But, I have missed it, and hope to be making it a regular thing again reaaaaaally soon. Hope the start to everyone's week has been swell! Part Two of the cruise will be up tomorrow, and here's a selfie of us in line for the movie for funsies! :)


  1. Kristina! You look adorable! This is the cutest date night outfit! I love that eyelet blouse and the pop of red adds the perfect, sassy touch!
    I haven't read World War Z, but I want to see the movie! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I would definitely be the one laughing at the goofy zombies in the movie, too....they get me every time!

  2. The movie sounds fun! And I love that skirt--I'm glad you didn't wait for your tripod to take pictures of it!

  3. A lot of times new shoes aren't that fun to wear--so I also avoid wearing them till I just grit my teeth and wear them till they adjust to my feet and stop hurting!! Your outfit is lovely!

  4. I love your skirt!! It's such a pretty color on you! Glad you had fun :)


  5. Kristina, welcome back! That skirt looks adorable on you, especially with that bright coral skirt!
