I'm seriously so tempted to do a full on "Fleet Week" on my blog... nothing but a week's worth of nautical inspired outfits haha! It's one trend that never feels outdated. Maybe that's just me? This is what I wore for a mini "date day" with Mike last Saturday. My mom took the boys for the latter half of the day and we ran errands in Franklin. I ended up being insanely windy that day, and I may or may not have shown a few people more than I meant to... haha! This dress is so comfortable and really well made. I was afraid it would be too long for me, but I really quite like where it hits. The top of the dress makes it! The bow, the collar... it's so perfect. My cardigan was also the exact same navy hue, so it felt like fate. I don't wear my hair up very often (on the blog... in real life it's 24/7) but this is my "mom hair, don't care" look. Since I wear Linden a lot, I have to be able to keep my hair out of his tiny (strong!) little hands.
I am so so looking forward to this weekend! Mike's parents are taking the boys Saturday and keeping them overnight (!!!) so we can enjoy a Valentine's Day together. Goodness knows we need it! I'm trying to let go of the reins a little but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sort of freaking out. I've never been away from Linden for more than a few hours at a time, so to have him in someone else's care for a full night... ahhhh! I mean, obviously Mike's parents are incredibly capable. I trust them 100%, but I get a little stressed thinking of Linden crying. I'm going to do my best to enjoy our evening together though. We don't have any concrete plans yet, but we're thinking maybe dinner in Florence and then just spending some quality time together. We'll see!
Don't forget you can take part in the Unique Vintage #IamUnique campaign by using the hashtag on social media! I'm super stoked to be part of their first Style Society and I've had a lot of fun so far. Be sure to pop over to the UV blog to see what the 5 of us have been up to! xo
