Steppin' Out: Casual Date Night

I'm no fashionista. And stepping in front of the camera further proves that to me. But, I'm trying. Okay, I'm not trying to be a fashion guru or anything like that.....but I'm trying to do my hair and make-up and get dressed on a regular basis. I'm kind of cringing right now about how I look in these pictures......but I think that's how I've gotten to where I am. By hiding under comfortable baggy clothes, and by not caring. I truly did not care about how I looked for some time, and now? Now I'm a little embarrassed by the way that I look and all of the work it's going to take to get me back to where I'm comfortable and happy with my body. Phew! There, I said it. It's out in the open, and so are these pictures........

I'm making it my goal to get dressed more often, see myself for where I am at, and take care of my body. This is just a start.


And this is what happens when you enlist your husband to take pictures for you......blurry and awkward. Oh well!

Shirt: Old Navy // Tank: Target // Skinny Jeans: Old Navy // Leopard Print Boat Shoes: Sperry

We headed out on a casual, but fun and much needed, date on Saturday. I can't remember the last time Scott and I went on an actual date, just the two of us. The best part was that he planned it all! It wasn't anything fancy, but the fact that he took me to a pizza place that he's eaten at a hundred times because I complained that I've never gotten to try it.......that made me swoon. And then top if off with a movie and fro-yo? That is my kind of date! I love him and am thankful for the alone time we had together.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend as much as I'm enjoying mine!

I totally know what you mean. It's easy to not care about what I look like when I never have to look at myself in photos. I have been trying to be better the last several months, about stepping in front of the camera. And also making more of an effort to do my hair/makeup on a more regular basis. It's a lot of work, though. Ha ha.
And what a great date night. Definitely my kind of date as well!!

I too am working on getting in front of the camera more, it is hard though because hubby doesn't enjoy taking photos, especially with how critical I am of myself.

I love the blue/yellow combo, the colors look great on you. And your date sounds like such a lovely time, I WANT FROYO!!!

How sweet it is said...

You look great girl!! I think a lot of mamas go through the same thing and find it easier to stay in yoga pants all day. Like you Im trying to make more of an effort and reading blogs has really givin me some inspiration! (thank you!)I truly feel better about myself if Im at least half way decent...silly I know. Keep it up girl you look beautiful :)

I feel the same way, just uncomfortable. It's just so hard to find the motivation at the end of the day, ya know? But you do look adorable in these pictures. I love your outfit, and your hair is so cute!

p.s. let me borrow your husband sometime. What a sweetie!
