just the two of us

Tuesday, February 21

Boots: Vince Camuto, Leather leggings:c/o Windsor, Top: c/o Windsor, camera bag: c/o THEIT
This is what I wore out on a date with my man on Saturday night. A date! Which I'm trying to be cool about and not make a big deal of. But in my head it's like a BIG DEAL in bright neon lights that flash and stuff. It was the first time we've been out on our own in three months. And it was like boom boom pow you know what I mean? There was movie candy and big laughs and four free arms and pants that don't have fleece linings. Followed by a very happy pink lipstick kiss reunion with our baby boy who couldn't take his eyes off daddy. Those two melt me, man. (Thanks Tyler and Laura for giving us a night to ourselves!)
We're talking about weekend wardrobes over here if you'd like to see!

Dates are soooo exciting!!! and you look sooo skinny! I want to order that shirt. Is it true to size? If you dont mind me asking, what size is yours? It will help to decide what I should get. Thanks girl!!!

February 21, 2012 10:01 AM

Aww you look lovely :) I hope you had a lovely time (it sounds like you did!)

February 21, 2012 10:03 AM

You look absolutely stunning. I want your entire outfit. Also: your hair is KILLING IT. Gorgeous.

I know you've shown it on your blog before, but every time I see it I just can't get over that camera bag. Maybe if I can convince the husband to buy it for me for my birthday, I won't feel like such a loser toting my camera around on our date nights (or making husband carry it haha).
You look lovely, glad you had an awesome date night!

Left brain, right brain, pug brain.

February 21, 2012 10:11 AM

We are blog outfit twinsies today -- sort of. I wore a pink blazer and pink lips this weekend too! Except there was no sans baby. Not yet.

Glad you got to go on a hot date! That's awesome.

February 21, 2012 2:17 PM

You look amazing your so pretty, its nice to find a new blog to read


February 21, 2012 2:18 PM

Sydney I just have to tell you I rarely comment, but read your blog all the time. I just love you and all your fashion cuteness. I only read the Washington gazette or whatever that is you write for because of you. I saw the last article that people left some not so nice comments. My heart was breaking for you:< I loved your outfits. I wouldn't have worn the last one, basically cause I have no black tie events to go to, but being a stay at home Mom myself makes me think ok I could do black tie if I wanted after reading your article. I don't think the fact that you are 23 or that you are a stay at home should make you less fashion savy. So whoever said that, not cute for them. I love all you write about Syndey. Never let anyone make you fell less. You rock!

February 21, 2012 2:26 PM

Such an adorable outfit. Perfect for date night.

February 21, 2012 2:36 PM

You look so pretty. That outfit is perfect, but you are really pretty in it!
Date night is so important! I hope to always keep it as a priority! My parents now have date night every single Friday night. It is just known!

February 21, 2012 2:55 PM

February 21, 2012 2:58 PM

I hear ya! I have a 6 month old (in two more days, tear!) and we have been out alone only TWICE! I think I have separation issues perhaps hehe. I ADORE your blog immensely and beyond -so glad a friend introduced me. And I especially am fond of this post's outfit! Glad you and your man had some alone time! Thanks for sharing your story with thousands :)

February 21, 2012 2:59 PM

Love date night! It is so important to have that special alone time.

You look just beautiful in pink, me dear!

March 01, 2012 9:14 AM

TuttiSister/others -
I recently purchased and received the Windsor top & leggings. I'll share my sizes. I typically wear extra small/small sized shirts. I purchased the small top and it is definitely flowy/roomy and covers my bottom (I'm 5'4). I typically wear a size 4 or 6 pants size. I decided to purchase the leggings in a size large actually. They fit me like a glove! Plus, they have a little bit of stretch. Also, I'd like to note, the leggings are SUPER shiney. Hope that helps! - Lacey

March 03, 2012 10:39 PM

loove! whats the lip color?!

March 05, 2012 6:36 PM

What size of this coral shirt are you wearing in your photo?


March 13, 2012 5:07 PM

Gorgeous shirt, what a lovely colour xx

March 21, 2012 4:07 PM

I am obsessed with this outfit! Love the pink top. <3
The bag is so amazing, and such a great price...yes I looked it up. I have to buy one for myself now, how can I pass it up?!

Love your blog girl and your style, it's all sooo cute!
