Date Night! Where We Went and What I Wore


Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Friday night was date night for me and Mr. B...we wanted to celebrate end of summer and our transition back into a full house.  My daughter and grandsons are coming for a couple of months since they need to evacuate their home in Saipan...which was hit by a Category 3 Typhoon about a month ago. They have been in Guam for three weeks, but now must move on to us!
We headed downtown to the renovated and popular PEARL BREWERY development.  I chose to wear this BRYN WALKER JAIDA TUNIC at Dillards. Last year, I really fell in love with two brands I discovered at Dillards...BRYN WALKER and IC COLLECTION.  Every time I wear these garments I receive compliments.  This  tunic is such a great print and I know I will wear it often this fall with scarves, cardigans, and my long Eileen Fisher sweater jacket.

This is my beautiful new handbag from ANT HILL, a local boutique run by Project Runway All-Star Season 2 winner, Anthony Ryan Auld.  I love this bag so much and it is the professional, chic style I have been looking for to wear with my new job.






We started with dinner at CURED, currently one of San Antonio's go-to restaurants.   The atmosphere was vibrant, intimate, and so friendly....mostly because of the employees...over-the-top nice.  The food was absolutely unique, tasty, and just the right size...paired with excellent wine.






We had an opportunity to have a long conversation...which with such busy schedules, we have to make a priority.







Dinner was quiet and conversational...the rest of the evening was loud and rocking!
We changed locations to SAM'S BURGER JOINT for the music.  Mr. B plays guitar and follows every great guitar musician whenever he can.  The atmosphere completely changed because in this place, you stand for the shows...no sitting!!

He likes to be really close up where he can see every chord and fret!  I was exhausted after two shows...but the good news is, my outfit worked for both places...though I was one of the best dressed at Sam's!! 

Remember...the week is about transitions!  And our crazy home life transitions again this week!  It was a great evening.

What did you do this weekend?

  7. Sounds like such a fun night! I actually didn't leave the house all weekend for once. I cleaned house on the blog and updated some old posts. Trying to get things in line for this new venture I'm embarking on with SheKnows media and their Experts Among Us panel. I'm trying to plan a date night with the hubby next weekend.

  10. Absolutely love that tunic! Gorgeous! So sad about the people in Saipan, but so grateful your family is safe. And what a treat to have them close for a while! I treasure every day I have my daughter and her family with me. I know it isn't going to last forever...
