Recent Look: Date Night & Babysitting Swap!!

Madewell shirt, Forever21 skirt, belt my mom bought me from Korea, DV by Dolce Vita shoes, Chanel handbag
Date night at Takashi using yet another groupon!
Babysitting Swap: My friend and I do a babysitting swap.  Both of our kids are sleeping through the night from 7 pm onwards so we just need somebody to sit on the couch for a few hours while we go out. It seems like such a waste to pay a sitter $50 just so she can watch tv and surf the web since our kids are already asleep. So, once a week or so, hubbie will go to their place and hang out there while they go out. He would’ve been watching tv or surfing the net at home anyway so it’s no big deal for him. Then, the next week, her husband will come and sit on our couch. It’s the best thing ever. We both get date nights and for free!

Sorry for the poor quality of images and extremely awkward poses. I’m still playing around with how to best capture my looks of the day.  I wish I had the time, photographers, and stunning good looks that bloggers like Cupcake and Cashmere and The Blonde Salad do but I don’t so these will have to do for now! :)
