GINGHAM OUTFIT DETAILS:
Gingham For Date Night
What a fun filled weekend! We had friends over to swim, and today we went to a water park called Raging Waves. It is only about an hour away from us, and it is really kid friendly.
I’m realizing that my almost three year old having a social life is exhausting. And I know it has only just begun. She was invited to her first birthday party and I am thrilled she is making friends. On top of our family weekend activities it made the weekend a whirlwind!
We’ve been lucky to be able to get in a few date night recently, and I relish getting dressed up and going out. When Rosie was first born I didn’t really feel like getting dressed up. I felt a little bit blah and tired all the time, and leaving her when she still wanted to eat every 3 hours was basically impossible. Now that she’s hit a good stride with sleeping through the night we’ve felt more comfortable leaving the girls with a babysitter for the evening!
My gingham dress is one I picked out from an online boutique called Petal + Pup right after Rosie was born. They have such cute stuff. These pants are from there as well as this comfy dress. When you wear this gingham dress without a belt it is flowy and has a lovely triangular cut that is so unique and flattering. I decided to belt it for our date night because I’ve been working hard at the gym and wanted to show off that I have a waist again, haha! My belt comes in a pack of four and is seriously such a bargain. Only $20 for 4 neutral belts! Any of them would look great with this dress.
