Monday Mingle: Winter Fashion Fun

monday mingle fashion

For Valentine’s day, I pulled out one of my favorite dresses–a sleeveless knit Ralph Lauren sweater dress. This is the dress I wore back in 2002 the night i met my husband.

The fashion lesson–good investments pay off. The dress not only packs well (it resists wrinkles) it also stands the test of time. My husband didn’t remember it unprompted, but he did appreciate my sentimentality.

I wore the cream dress with a scarf and heeled boots. It was fashionable and cozy for a romantic winter’s night. I did a quick photo session before leaving the kids with a sitter. My little one wanted in on the action!

We had a lovely dinner ar Vinegar Hill House (yum) and then saw Silver Linings Playbook. Both were excellent. I’m so happy that we saw this particular movie. It was so romantic in it’s own quirky way. What did you do last week? Did you have a date?

This post is a part of Monday Mingle. Each Monday I team up with Jill from Glamamom and Kristin from BonBonRoseGirls to share a personal style post. WE take turns hosting, this week Jill is the hostess. Head here to link up.
