Well I didn't get all of my outfits photographed for this week, but I definitely did better than last week! Here are the goods:

Thursday {work to date night!}

{right after work - and meet dakota}


blazer - J.Roberts in Ruidoso, NM {fabulous Christmas gift from my parents}
shirt - Forever 21 {december}
peacock pin - Loft {september}
jeans - Aeropostal {years ago}
flats - Target {several months ago}

And here's my outfit ready for date night:


I put on some nice jeans (gap last year), a pair of heels (Clarks last year) and spruced up my makeup and felt ready for date night. It may not look at that different from far away, but check out these close ups:

Here's my makeup after work: {strategic placement by Cody & Kota}


And here's my make-up spruced up:

Makeup can make all the difference for date night!

While I'm still getting into the habit of taking daily pictures and finding a fun way to showcase everything, I did stop to laugh at myself this week and think, "This is like the grownup, acceptable version of taking personal Myspace pictures!" And then I giggled at myself. Maybe you're not brave enough to admit it or post the pics, but we all know we've done some crazy posing to get the best shot for WIWW.

I'm not too proud to make fun of myself. Here's this week's best Myspace shot:

Don't worry folks. There's more where that came from next week!
