What I Wore: Day Date

I mentioned the other day that the Mr. and I escaped got out for a lovely brunch minus the kiddos this past Sunday.
I was pretty jazzed at the thought of hobnobbing with the hipsters downtown, hanging with friends and having a day date with my man! I knew I wanted to wear high heels but was kind of torn as to which ones and since the weather was warming back up I even had the possibility of having my toes out! Eek!
Friday afternoon I scored some new ankle boots (more on those later) and I was kind of wanting to rock those for a little boho chic vibe but didn't like the overall look when I tried them on.



Option two was for sure more casual and along the lines of what everyone else was going to be wearing. For some reason I was not interested in looking like everybody else.
I wanted color. I wanted bold. I wanted fun.



I tried on only two shoe options prior to settling on my trusty Maxwell's.


The Mr. actually finalized the decision by boldly declaring that he "preferred the grey ones for some reason". It wasn't too hard to convince me.

Definitely liked how my outfit turned out. I even wore bracelets!


I could easily re-work this to be more casual with a quick swap of shoes or even throwing on a chambray shirt instead.

But I loved the contrast of the bold blue and how it pops against my favorite shade of fuchsia. The addition of the Maxwell booties just kicked it up a notch (enter Emeril's trademark phrase of "BAM"!!!!!)


Do you ever get carried away with your date outfits?
