I Can’t Hang Like I Used To

This past weekend my wonderful parents came to our house to watch the girls so we could head out for some adult time and to celebrate my dear friend’s birthday! And by celebrate I mean we went out to dinner, were at the bar by 8:00 (what is that child doing at a bar so late??? Oh wait, its only 8:00) and home by 11:00. I just can’t hang like I used to (my husband, on the other hand, totally can which he proved Saturday night.) Amazing how things change. I distinctly remember celebrating many birthday’s in college- the celebrations didn’t even begin until 11:00. Now, I am falling asleep on my bar stool at 11:00!

Because I am tired of the snow, I am also tired to bundling up. Not to mention I hate having to worry about a heavy coat and scarf when I am out and about. This leather jacket was the perfect thing to wear. Like I told my Dad, it was more of an accessory than an actual jacket! (I do that quite a bit- wear a jacket as an accessory and not for actual function)

Outfit Details: 

Jacket: Old Navy (old) /// Shirt: Kohl’s /// Jeans: Old Navy /// Shoes: Lauren Conrad for Kohls /// Bag: c/o Blair Ritchey /// Necklace: Stella and Dot /// Bracelets: Stella and DotStella and DotAlex and Ani

Since wearing this jacket over the weekend, I have since refound (is that even a word?) my love for my leather jacket and have already worn it again. After all, it was forty degrees yesterday, which was pretty much like a spring day! I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot of this jacket in the near future….

Linking up with Shanna for Random Wednesday!

    ahhh, I have this problem, I think it starts with children. Last night the hubs and I were watching the Olympics and all I could think was – When did I become older than the Olympians?! You look fabulous regardless – loooving those pumps with this outfit!xo

    Love this look! I am the same way about going out. It takes me a few days to get back to normal and not feel like I am going to fall asleep while standing up at work 🙂 Funny how that changes! I am loving this little bit of "warmth" here too! Can't wait for it to stick around, I miss my lighter layers and am just tired of putting a coat on over seven layers everyday!
