Gingham girl

Obsessed with gingham & plaid, I tell ya!

I wore this shirt to work with a pair of jeans and flats, but decided to dress it up a bit with a skirt and heels for a dinner and movie date with the Pirate.  We ate at one of our fave little restaurants, Penne Pasta.  While at dinner we both decided to keep our cellphones out of reach, so that we could really enjoy our time together; talk to each other, rather than tweeting, instagraming, or FB-ing our little date.  Haha.  With technology and social networking literally at our fingertips these days, we can easily get wrapped up in cyber world, when the real world is passing us by.  The Pirate and I always have a great time together, but last night was extra fun.  As corny as it sounds, date nights are important in relationships.  It's a great opportunity to reconnect with your partner. :)

These orange platforms are another great pair that MyHotShoes sent me.  I don't have any orange shoes, so I thought this pair would be a great addition to my shoe collection.  I swear it feels like you're walking on a cloud in these babies.  They are super lightweight.  The platform makes it's a breeze to walk in, too.  Don't forget, my readers get 20% off (promo code: SHARON2) any pair of shoe or shoes you want from MyHotShoes.  There are tons of great summer sandals to choose from!

{shirt: Old Navy (buy)| skirt: DIY by me | shoes: c/o MyHotShoes (buy) | belt: Gap | clutch: F21
sunnies: Rayban | necklace: Macy's | watch: Michael Kors | ring: c/o Wendy Mink Jewelry}

Love, S

I absolutely love the pop of color through your accessories. I wish I could go out on dates with my boyfriend, but he's all the way on Kauai. Long distance is difficult, but we have webcam dates all the time. I guess for us it's all about communication that keeps us going. :)

The shoes are great! I bet they are really comfy to walk in. The color really is a unique color that you hardly see on a shoe. I guess perfect for summer.

Orange is such a fun color. And glad you had a great time on your date night. I will admit to tweeting/fb'ing during a date, but it's mostly to show the amazing food! :) <3

モンクレー ダウン said...

モンクレー ダウンというと、本当に独特なブランドのことがありました。monclerということはフランスのヒマラヤに近付いたGernobleの小さい街のMonestier de Clermontから出来上がりました。この日から、登山向けの服を生産するRene Ramillionは第二世界戦争に服を提供するために、フランスの有名なLionel Terrayと知り合いになりました。1952年、カナダから国へかえってから、Rene Ramillionと見合わせました。それで、二人は一緒に世界のファッションブランド品を生産することにしました。ですから、今、モンクレール ジャケットを作ってくれました。さらに、あの日から、Moncler Mokaがすごく人気になりました。
