Dress Well: Mystery Date

Zara dress (last seen here), Birds on a Wire necklace, J. Crew bangles, Ivanka Trump heels, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Tory Burch sunglasses

This past Saturday, my husband took me on a mystery date. He wouldn't tell me where we were going or what we were doing, he just told me it was too dressy to wear jeans. And that we would be eating. But that's basically a given when you're the two of us.

This situation posed a variety of issues for me. First, we hardly ever go anywhere where jeans wouldn't be appropriate, so my clothing selection is a little sparse for dressy events! Secondly, I assumed we would probably be eating well (per the usual) and you know my number one fashion rule for going out to dinner: never, EVER wear something with a tight, constricting waistband. Given these issues, it only took me a few minutes to realize that this dress was the obvious choice. And with Mad Men premiering the next day, it just seemed appropriate to channel a little bit of Joan while out on the town. Finally, picking this dress gave me the perfect opportunity to debut my Birds on a Wire McKinney necklace - I love the way short necklaces look with high necklines, so the dress and the necklace were perfectly suited for one another!












It's going to be another busy week - I've got two charity events, plenty going on at work, AND I'm definitely going to get back in the workout groove. I think. Enjoy your Tuesday, and I'll see you back here tomorrow!
