This was the weekend of the wrap dress.

Saturday night I had my first Girls Night Out since Emerson came in to my life. My sister and I had a fun evening in DC – dinner, a drink, to see Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings at the 9:30 Club, a post-concert drink and then a late-night snack at Ben's Chili Bowl.

Picture 076I wore my black wrap dress from Ann Taylor, red shoes from Sofft, and usually wouldn't take a purse this large to a concert but I had to take my pump with me because I was going to be gone for so long.

This is a picture I took of myself in the lovely bathroom at 9:30 Club.

I did my hair straight because it is in DESPERATE need of a haircut and curly ends up looking scraggly. Silver hoops and cuff and my “Emerson” necklace from Tags-n-Stones.

The night was awesome – I always have fun with my sister and it was great to get out. Sharon Jones put on a phenomenal show as well. And for all my years living in the DC area, I had yet to go to Ben's Chili Bowl, so that was cool (and quite delish!).

Sunday, my husband made me his fabulous French Toast for breakfast. We just spent time enjoying the nice weather, took a nap, had a relaxing day. That night we went to dinner with my mom and sister (and of course Emerson!).

On Sunday I wore almost the same exact outfit, the same dress but in the blue print. Hair straight again, same shoes. Love having a collection of dresses, it makes it so easy to get dressed for almost any occasion!

  1. I am relieved you made the most of it! And that you are alive – I was actually worried about you! But I have no idea how you fit in any blogging at all with a full-time job and new bebe. I am struggling to do so without even adding the latter to the mix… when you have time I think we need a post from you on organisational skills. x

  2. Two drinks, oh dear no!

    Half a pitcher of margaritas at dinner, a drink at a bar, about four beers at the concert, and a beer at another bar post-concert! πŸ™‚

    And she did, it was awesome! πŸ™‚

  3. Belated Happy Mother’s Day! I hope Emerson was exceptionally nice to you…

    Only 2 drinks for your first girls’ night out since the baby? Very moderate indeed.

    I saw Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings here recently and it was a great show. Did she pull girls out of the audience to sing and dance with her?

  4. Hot outfit for a Saturday out in the city!! I love having a collection of dresses to choose from as well. They make up 90% of my wardrobe. When I started reading your blog about a year and a half ago, you wore dresses a lot and then, I started wearing them. It’s all I wear to work now. Love it and I have you to thank! Have a great day and a great weekend!!
