Date Night

Like I said earlier this week, my husband and I had a kid free weekend so we took advantage! We aren't super fancy people and we are budgeting, so we kind of limited ourselves to local restaurant options. We were also both craving different things for dinner, so we settled on a new diner that had just opened up!

I always find it funny that my blog is Mommy in Heels because I don't wear heels that much anymore! They just don't fit into my lifestyle like they used to! For our little date night though I figured I would take them for a spin, if only for a little bit! (I mean...I did bring a change of shoes with me just in case!).

A few weeks ago I turned my favorite pair of Levi's that were a tad too long into my new favorite Levi's with a step hem. If you follow me on instagram you saw the little transformation. These jeans I am wearing were my next step hem adventure. I documented this time around so I could share with you in a blog post my step by step.

I will say I had a little bit more trouble this time around. It's funny because for my Levi's I literally was like "I am going to give it a try!" and banged it out in like 10 mins. This time around it took me SO much longer and I had to make a lot more adjustments and fixes!

Anyway, be on the lookout over the next week for a DIY Step Hem tutorial!

Casual, Kid Free Weekend

My husband and I had a somewhat unexpected kid free weekend and it was glorious! I was originally supposed to be in LA over the last several days, but it was pushed to the end of the month. 

Originally, my husband was going to have the weekend all to himself (a dream, right?!), but we were both glad to have this unexpected weekend together. At first we thought about doing something super fun, but local. That thought quickly left our minds as we reminded each other of our budget...womp wompppppp.

We are doing Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University through our church, so budgeting is at the forefront of our minds (and wallets). We ended up just running errands and taking care of little things that needed to be done. The day ended with dinner at a new diner. While we didn't end up doing anything over the top, it was the perfect weekend-I told him I can't remember the last time I laughed and giggled so much! 

I wore this outfit when we were out and about during the day on Saturday. It's so hard to dress this time of year (March is my least favorite month)-my mind is on spring, but Mother Nature is still in full on winter mode. Plus, I know you all are ready to see some spring looks, am I right?

With all of the snow on the ground, but somewhat mild temps, the easiest thing to reach for is my utility jacket. I always consider this a closet staple, and always recommend to my clients that they add one to their closet. This one from Loft is a couple of years old, but they are so easy to find!

Instagram Roundup

Happy Friday!! I don't know why I am starting my post out with that....I can't stand how everyone seems to start their first snapchat or instastories of the day with "Happy Monday!" or "Happy Thursday!" Lump that phrase in the category with "to the moon and back" phrase, "it is what it is," oh and "go big or go home." Over.used.

Wow I came right out of the gate with guns blazing, didn't I?!? LOL! Don't know where that came from, but HAPPY FRIDAY anyway!! :)

Since we got dumped on by Mother Nature this week with a ton of snow, no new outfit post, but I did throw together a little instagram roundup for you so you can shop all of my looks right in one place!

If you haven't done so already, download the new Liketoknow.it app- you can screenshot or like any photos that are liketoknow.it enabled on instagram and immediately get a push notification to shop the looks right away. Makes it a whole lot easier than having to wait for an email!

Waiting for Spring in Stripes

This is about the fourth or fifth time that I have worn this shirt within the past couple weeks that I have had it (last seen on the blog here). It is super comfortable, the sleeves are just right, and it goes with just about everything! 

While I (along with everyone else) am dying for some warmer temperatures, I had to settle and wear my laceup flats with this instead of a cute pair of wedges or sandals. This would also look cute with a chic denim vest instead of the jacket! 

It was a tad cold to be wearing just the denim jacket, but fashion before function, right?!?!

Dreaming of Spring

I thought we had managed to escape the wrath of Mother Nature this winter, but I was wrong. I guess the unseasonably warm temps we had in February were a bit of a tease, and got everyone all geared up for spring. As I type this though, we are anticipating 12+ inches of snow Monday night into Tuesday.

I am anticipating not being able to open my store Tuesday (and possibly Wednesday, depending on when the snow stops). Part of me is like NOOOOOO!! But another part of me loves the anticipation of a snow storm and the possibility of being snowed in (for a day, tops. Any more than that may make me crazy!!).

Anyway, with spring on my mind, I gravitated towards my white jeans and loved the idea of pairing a pastel tee with it. I would have loved to wear these shoes with it, but with freezing temps, it just wasn't in the cards!
