black out

tank: kahlo | jeans: nobody cult skinnies | shoes: aquazzura | clutch: givenchy | necklace: maripossa

wore this to date night with my husband last night. it's not often we get to spend time with only each other, so we make a real effort to set aside a date night each week. it's funny how you can be married and living together but not really spend time together. we both have such busy lives that sometimes we can go a whole day without seeing or speaking until we hop into bed. the implementation of date nights has made such a difference to our relationship, even if all we do is talk about food and our beloved gruffle monster (we lost it last night when another gruffle girl walked past).

last night we decided to wing it go wherever our taste buds led us (or wherever we could find a table). we ended up at the new pop up enrique's school for to bullfighting - brought to us by their next door neighbours beaufort street merchant. tapas style food with a twist. every dish was very tasty in its own right, but altogether was just an overload of rich, creamy, decadent food. too much. we only ordered 5 dishes and couldn't bring ourselves to finish the last (beef ribs with creamy coleslaw). 

lucky i wore a loose top...

details of my outfit:

the jeans i got on sale from ssense - way too long for my short, little legs so i chose the lazy option of hacking the hem off with a pair of scissors... i figured the raw edge kinda goes with the rest of the distressing...

the shoes i also scored on sale a while ago from forward. i had been eyeing them off for the longest time and when they went to further discount i couldn't resist. haven't regretted the decision for a moment as they are the softest suede, so well made and, let's be honest here, they look freaking hot.

the necklace was a recent purchase from work which i haven't really taken off. more on this soon.


  1. Love the ripped jeans & I agree about the date nights, it's so important to set time aside for yourselves during the week
