Date Night Dots

polka dot dress (less than $50!) // Stuart Weitzman heels, similar HERE & HERE
french bistro set from Homegoods, but I found a similar one online HERE & HERE
Good morning everyone, I hope you all had an amazing Fourth of July!! Now that we are settling into our house and married life (which, by the way, I have some really funny stories of living with a MAN!), we are really enjoying having our friends over. Last night we had friends over for the Fourth and we had dinner, played yard games and set off some small fireworks – it was a blast!! We’ve also been hanging out on our back patio a lot… even if it’s just to have a glass of wine before heading out on date night. This bistro table and chairs are really similar to the ones I own (I found mine at Homegoods!). I love the French Bistro look 🙂
I wore this outfit on “date night” last week… this polka dot dress is less than $50 and, honestly, I feel very grown-up in it hah! The low V in the front has some sex appeal, but it’s still classy because of the midi length. And the price is really great, too! I paired it with neutral accessories so that the outfit wouldn’t get too “busy.” 
On another note, my birthday is on Sunday and I always like to do a fun post on my blog! I’m thinking of doing a Birthday Q&A post (like this one), so if you have any questions for me leave them in the comments! I’ll answer anything and everything!

  2. Love this dress so much. It reminds me of something Alli would have worn in the Notebook. I would love to know how you plan and organize your Instagram posts? Do you have them all scheduled in advance, how do they relate back to your blog, and do you plan out all of your captions as well?

  3. Love this post! Q for your bday post: what was your top 3 favorite memories from your wedding day?

  4. This polka dot dress is so cute!! I can't wait to hear your funny story!

  5. Your dress is absolutely lovely.

    Q: Do you & your husband plan on taking a vacation every year? If you do, what are future destinations you’d like to visit?
    Q: Do you ever get stuck from a creative side when writing blog posts? If so then how do you get past it?
    Q: How soon do you want to start a family?

    Thanks girly!

  11. This dress is just too cute! I’ve been following your blog for about 2 years now and I love when you do the Q&A’s! I have a couple of questions:
    1. I know you got engaged a little over a year ago, do you think it’s best to to wait a whole year to plan the wedding or do you think it can be done in a shorter time frame?
    2. What was the most difficult part about planning your wedding and how did you and your husband work through it?

  12. I would love a makeup tutorial !!! I need help in that area especially on the eyes!! Happy early birthday!!

  13. Lovely dress.

  14. Love this dress! I have a few questions for your bday (also happy early birthday!!)

    1. Can you explain your current fitness/diet routine and especially what you did to be in the best shape possible for your wedding?
    2. What does a typical day look like for you?
    3. How did you manage blogging when you were a student/not full time blogger yet? Any tips/tricks for staying organized and on top of blogging things? What all goes on behind the scenes?


  15. Glad you had a great 4th of July

  17. Yay for polka dots! And, for birthdays! I always love your Q&A's … so, here are my questions… 1) What is the one thing about fashion that you hate, haha?! Any pet peeves? 2) What are your tips for us ladies who work from home… on staying social and not getting lonely? 3) Would love to know more about how you and your Momma stay so close! (my daughter is 4 and you two are #momdaughtergoals!!!) Thanks so much! No matter what questions you answer, I'm sure I'll enjoy all of your insights! Cheers!
