Happy Friday and welcome to the weekend! Today, Mr. B makes a rare appearance here as I show you what we wore on date night!
We do enjoy an occasional date night, and this one was to honor his birthday.
But, unfortunately, I have a lesson learned the hard way when I discuss my outfit!
So, we will start with him!
WHAT HE WORE ON DATE NIGHT
Recently, I told you in a What I Wore post that we went shopping together for him, and that I convinced him to make a couple of purchases outside of his comfort zone.
Since the pandemic and since he is a runner and Pelton participant, he has become accustomed to athletic wear. He even shops at lululemon.
So, I said…we need to mix things up a bit.
Ta Da! Here is the official preview of the new and improved Mr. B!
When we were shopping my eye went right to this leather jacket on a display at his favorite men’s store, and I was amazed at the sale price on the garment.
I thought it was beautiful and he owned nothing like this. The after Christmas price made it possible to take home.
Here he is pretending to be me…without the smile!
I love this jacket on him and so glad he made the choice to go with it. Also, I talked him into these dark denim jeans with a touch of stretch. The fit was spot on.
The whole look was topped off with his favorite boots.
WHAT I WORE ON DATE NIGHT…LESSON LEARNED
These are beautiful pants and the misses and petites are both on sale.
Because I love textures, I immediately wanted to pair these diamond pants with this Eileen Fisher jacket I have owned for a few years.
It is a very similar color and the mixture of textures is so interesting.
I often have Stacy and Clinton in my head…they always said to dress with Color, Texture, Pattern and Shine.
However, when I styled it in my head, the top I thought would work in my closet, just didn’t look good at all.
I waited too long to have an issue with what top to wear. Finally, I went for this Chico’s top In bright jade…which I like with it.
But I literally threw it on and ran out the door. When I looked at the pictures, my eye went immediately to an area that needed to be steamed before I left.
LESSON LEARNED: Prepare earlier for options and make sure to look in the mirror before leaving.
I will wear this outfit again…but with a fully steamed blouse.
WHERE WE WENT ON DATE NIGHT
Somehow, I love this picture I took as we walked through the Historic Pearl area in downtown San Antonio.
Though the leaves are suffering from the cold, I still love the overall feel of it.
I realize I picture this area often, but it truly is one of my favorite places to go.
When we were at the club before Christmas, we were told this band was a must see.
This is Doc Watkins on the piano, and we had requested to sit where we could see the keyboard.
During one song, his hands were moving so fast they were actually blurred.
We loved the mix of classic jazz with Texas Swing. It was a fabulous show and perfect way to celebrate Mr. B’s birthday.
We ran into friends and visited with our son and his girlfriend afterwards …since they live nearby.
Except for a top which needed a touch up…it was a wonderful date night.
Here are some items currently at Chico’s I would definitely consider for a date!
Please share if you have a story of running out without checking your overall outfit…I want to know I am not alone!
Thanks for being here for what we wore on date night…Jennifer and I will have Would You Wear It tomorrow…have a fabulous Friday and always…..
