Mr. Menace and I have a standing Friday night date night but we didn’t get to go this weekend, so Saturday we went out for dinner and a movie.
About two weekends ago, I was doing a little bit of Christmas shopping and as usual I was finding a LOT of stuff that I wanted for myself! I was in Burke’s Outlet and saw these cute booties in the very trendy Blush Pink color and they just happened to be in my size.

Since I purchased them, we had not been out on a date that was appropriate for these heels, so I was excited to get the opportunity to finally wear them.
Now here is the awesomely freaky coincidence that just makes my outfit special… I’ve been ordering some gifts online and when I checked the mail one day last week there were a couple of small packages in it. One was a gift I had ordered as I expected, but the other one contained a Christmas card from Stitch Fix and a gift for me! Believe it or not, it was the perfectly matching Blush Pink cross body bag!
I have NEVER had matching shoes and purse before!
I decided the best way to show off my new pale pink accessories was with black. My black jeans (more like jeggings) and my black cold shoulder sweater worked as the perfect backdrop. The sweater is from Stitch Fix and was sent to me before we went on our New England Fall trip. Featuring smallish cutouts on the shoulders, notice you can’t even see one of them in my pictures, it would be a great option if you are new to the cold shoulder look. The brand is Cotton Emporium Sharlyn Col Shoulder Pullover. It has split sides and the back is longer than the front which makes a nice silhouette.
I really need to find a better way to take outfit pictures, but I haven’t been able to figure that out yet. Forgive my dirty mirror, appliance cords, real life bathroom selfies.
The only jewelry I needed was some large statement earrings since the gold chain on the purse was enough bling around the neck.
Before we went to Jack Brown’s Beer & Burgers for supper, we first made a stop at Princeton Hospital to visit Mr. Menace’s cousin. There was a lady just inside the doors, and as we were looking for the information desk, she stopped me and said, “Your booties are great! Oh! AND your purse! I know what you need, there is a wrap here in the gift shop… I just bought it myself yesterday and it is the same color.”
And, even though the gift shop was closed, she proceeded to find the wrap through the windows and closed doors in order to show me the one she was talking about. She was very insistent that it would complete my outfit, and that she loved what I was wearing. Such a small thing to tell someone you like their outfit, but it sure is a boost to this midlife girl’s confidence.
