Outfit Highlight: All Dressed Up and Finally Somewhere to Go

IMG_4843 copy

My hubby and I don’t get to go out much. With three young kids at home, it’s a major production every time we want to get away for a couple of hours on our own. However, we do realize the importance of time alone as a couple so we make it a point to have date nights, especially on our birthdays, our anniversary and Valentine’s Day. Every once in a while, we have the opportunity to get dressed up and go to a special event. I wore this outfit recently to a charity dinner to benefit the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. Enjoying a night out for a good cause is always a must in my book.

I have to admit, I almost regretted buying this dress on final sale at Club Monaco. I was so enamored with the rich blue color and the simple yet eye-catching embellished collar, that I couldn’t resist. At first, I wasn’t sure what to pair it with and I just couldn’t make it work. Then I threw on a cropped BCBG blazer, added a sash and I felt like it was finally coming together. Although appropriate for the occasion, I felt the look was a bit too demure for my taste so I opted for a more trendy pair of pointed-toe heels. So many times I am lured by the final sale price of an item, only to regret the purchase as soon as I get home. I’m glad this one didn’t end up being one of those.
