My beautiful friend Kasey and I are back with another edition of our outfit collaborations! This time, we're talking about our favorite looks for date night with our boys!

For my birthday last month, Andrew took me out to a nice dinner at Wayfare Tavern. I was so excited to go there because I'd heard so much about it, but mostly because I love Tyler Florence, and it's his restaurant. 

I figured this was the perfect opportunity to play dress up, and wear a new top and skirt I found at Nordstrom a couple months ago. Typically, our date nights are much more casual, but the special occasion called for a dressed up date night! 

Since my office isn't downtown, sometimes I feel like I miss out on the fun, city vibe that I originally moved here for. So I was really looking forward to meeting Andrew downtown for our date. Wayfare Tavern is pretty close to Andrew's office, so we just met there after work for an early dinner. If you haven't been there before, definitely add it to your list. The food was delicious. Since we had heard so much about the deviled egg appetizer, we had to try it. I also ordered a couple oysters on the half shell to start, because I can never pass those up! For my entree, I ordered scallops that were served with sweet potato biscuits and a drizzle of gravy. It sounds strange, but I'm so happy that I tried it. Oh man, it was ah-mazing! The biscuits were small, like the size of the scallops, and the drizzle of sausage gravy created such a unique and amazing flavor combination. Seriously, so good! Since Andrew had heard so many good things about the fried chicken, he got that as his entree. It was delicious, but not the best he'd ever had. One of the best parts about dinner were the fresh, warm pop overs they brought to the table. YUM. I can't wait to go back, but next time with a larger group so I can try everything on the menu! 

Clearly, it was a good thing I wore this jersey pencil skirt because I ate my weight in food! But, it was well worth it for my birthday celebration!

Okay, back to the outfit...

I absolutely love this top. I had seen it on another blog (I think it was Pink Peonies, but can't remember) and she mentioned it was on sale at Nordstrom for only $25! The back is so fun with a sheer black detail. The blouse is a bit short, so I like the look of it tucked in with a pencil skirt to define my waist. And I'm wearing my go-to black plumps, that seem to look good with everything. The skirt is also a newer purchase from Nordstrom, for a good price too. It's by far the most comfortable skirt I own, I love it. It's great too, because you can wear it high waisted like I did here, or lower on your hips. It scrunches to adjust the length as well. Such a versatile purchase. 

I think we need to plan more dressy date nights! Because, every girl loves an excuse to get dressed up! 

Be sure to head over to Kasey's blog to see the cute look she put together for their date night! She looks so effortless and put together as usual. And her purse reminds me that I need a new one, badly! There's a reason I didn't include it in this post!

I hope you all have a great day! I'm resting up, trying to get healthy before Friendsgiving on Sunday!
