my outfit: perfectly draped + a giveaway!

Lately my husband and I have been super lucky to be doing more regular "nights out" or date nights.  The kids are getting older, so that makes it super easy and also we have made it more of priority lately.  We don't have family near by so it always includes paying a sitter (yikes! they are expensive these days) but we've found that it is an investment into our relationship that is so worth it.  Plus, it's just fun!

When date nights used to come around I would slip on my fanciest shirt and favorite jeans and a pair of heels and I would be set to hit the town.  But as the dates become more regular I kept finding myself gravitating to the same pieces again and again.  Boring.  Plus, if you haven't noticed - I'm not big on dressing up.  And on top of that, I'm not big on super fancy places to eat either - I like a good local establishment that is relaxed with good food.

My point is, dates are pretty casual for us.  And that is just the way I like them.  So when Nally & Millie sent over this gorgeous top, I knew it was a) just my style and b) perfect for our recent night out.  So it's what I wore!

I love that it's a little dressed up with skinnies and boots and can also be dressed down with leggings and flats.  Plus, it's super cozy.  The drape is so perfect that I felt very lady like in it, not at all like I was covered in fabric.  And I'm not pregnant (nor do I plan to be) but this top would be AMAZING for a little pregnant lady - you would die (and look cute doing it)!

The best part... you can win one of these tops I am wearing!  (It's actually two tops, one tank underneath and the more drapey top over it!).  Remember follow the rules and tell me how you would wear it!
