If you’ve read my blog in the past, you know how much I love a night out, especially date night with the hubs. It’s been a minute since we enjoyed a night out together without little man, so this past weekend we pulled out all the stops! We dressed our best, grabbed a box of cigars & headed out for a night on the town…
We started our night downtown with dirty martinis & red bull on the rocks; my man doesn’t drink, but still manages to be the life of the party, which is one of the many reasons I love him. We met friends for dinner at the Grand Concourse, an old railroad station turned restaurant which is “nestled comfortably on the riverfront and overlooking the downtown skyline”. Afterwards, we ventured to the Rivers Casino for some more drinks, live music & a little gambling.
My outfit of the night is the perfect example of inexpensive & chic. My skirt & pumps are from Forever 21, my crop top is from TJ Maxx & my faux leather clutch is from Target. I love fashion on a dime!!!

Two weeks ago I took my first girls trip since having my son almost 3 years ago. Needless to say, this was a much-needed getaway! My girlfriends & I headed to Miami to celebrate a friend’s bachelorette party. Our days were full of sunshine & tropical drinks and our nights were spent dancing into the late hours.
While on vacation I had the chance to try out some trends that aren’t necessarily appropriate for heading to the park or an afternoon play date. The first night I rocked this easy-wear romper that I picked up from Forever21 for under $20. It paired nicely with my black strappy heels & faux leather clutch.
I was planning on wearing an off-the-shoulder royal blue romper on our second night out, but ended up burning a hole in it with the condo’s not so trusty iron I ended up borrowing this sheer cutout bodysuit & faux leather skirt from my girlfriends; thank goodness I have stylish friends!
On our last night, we headed to Nikki Beach for drinks & dancing in the sand. I kept things simple & chic with this form fitting crop top from Express & these lightweight trousers from Target that I snagged for $6.99!

Can you believe it’s 2017 already?! Though I hate that my little man is quickly becoming a toddler before my eyes, I love the start of a new year! It’s as if you get a clean slate – a fresh start at love, friendship, personal growth, not to mention new fashion trends & outfit options!
The last few years we’ve hosted a NYE get together at our house. It’s become tradition to do fondue & create fun martinis. Though it’s just a small get together with close friends & family, I love any opportunity to get dressed up! I was hoping to wear a new LBD by Tory Burch that my husband surprised me with, but I had to exchange sizes & am still waiting for the new size to arrive. Rather, I put together a sparkly number that, believe or not, I found at Forever 21.
I have never been one to wear a body suit, but I have to admit I am kind of a fan. It was the perfect style to pair with this long pencil skirt! I originally tried it on with my high rise jeans which I loved, so I may be rocking that look soon too.
By the way, doesn’t my girlfriend look super chic in her Louboutin pumps and LBD from Stitch Fix!? Major style goals!
Cheers to a New Year! As always – comfortable & effortless housewife style xoxx
