Date Night part two-1

It’s not often that we get a night out, just the two of us.  And when we do, we do it big.  Like making a reservation at the hottest restaurant in NYC big!  Like making that reservation for 5:45 p.m. because that’s when you usually eat with your baby, big!  We were ballin’ with all the other early birds and still made it to bed by 10 p.m.  Now that’s a great night!

On this particular occasion we went to our friend’s restaurant, American Cut.  The food was outrageously delicious!  Just in time for the night, we purchased a new camera that we got to play around it.  It’s a Sony DSC-RX100 and it’s so fun!  My husband managed to master it in minutes to take all these cool photos (more than I normally post on the blog).  I am still trying to navigate the owners manual

But I digress…back to the night!  We had so much fun.  We started off in our old neighborhood taking photos by the second apartment we lived in together.  I even got to get dressed on a Saturday which was a feat in itself.  I opted for a variation of one of my favorite outfits.  Instead of the cream blouse I always wear, I punched it up with this cobalt version and my favorite new necklace.  I added some punchy lipstick, my comfortable city-walking heels and clutch (big enough to fit the camera).  I can’t wait to go back and maybe even stay up long enough to watch “Saturday Night Live.”

I’m really lucky that I not only have the best in-laws, but that they also live near what I think this the most amazing T.J. Maxx around.  And trust me, I’ve scoured the racks of a lot of T.J. Maxx stores.  The one near their home in New Jersey is worth a pilgrimage with it’s wall (like really, an entire wall) of designer shoes, a case of purses (even still-in-stores Fendi totes!), and a huge Runway section.  I don’t know why I’m telling you all this since I don’t really want to share my mecca of designer deals.  I guess I’m feeling extra generous lately.  But for those of you who can’t dedicate a weekend or a small vacation to visiting my store, you’ll be absolutely thrilled to find out that T.J. Maxx is back in the online retail game!  I don’t know if this is the best or worst thing to happen to me (I’m thinking best for me, worst for my monthly shopping budget).  Here are a few of my favorites available now.
