Bright Like A Dying Star

I know I've been gushing about Jessica's closet lately but who can blame me?!  If you haven't figured it out this dress is another borrowed gem.  There have been many times where we have both lusted for the same dress.  One of us always gives in to temptation and the other has the option to borrow it.  It's been a great system these past couple of years and our closets basically double.  I find this even more valuable these days since I don't really have much disposable income.  I spend most of my money on diapers now.  How one year can change everything...

Last night was Kevin's birthday get together.  It was also our first time leaving Bianca with someone.  To be honest, it was really nice to have dinner together without one of us scarfing down our food to tend to baby.  I love spending as many moments with her as possible, but a night out here and there with just Kevin is something we both need.  We then went to a bar to meet up with friends to celebrate.  Bianca was always in the back of my mind but I had so much fun hanging out with adults!

I'm seriously thinking about chopping off my hair.  I definitely go through this a lot, I grow it long and then hack it all off.  This time I planned to keep the long hair but I'm constantly having to put it up to avoid it getting pulled 24/7.  Bianca thinks it's a toy and I'm quite sick of the red on the ends.  Hopefully I'll be able to make an appointment in the next few days, I'm so anxious to do it!

  1. You look gorgeous, girl! That dress looks so good on you.
    I saw (on Instagram) it was your husband's 30th birthday! That's great you got to go out for it, and without Bianca.
    My fiance's 30th is in 2 months.

  5. The dress look so cute with that jacket you paired it with! I think a haircut will be a fun change, when I chopped mine off I loved it!

  6. Aw, I'm glad you are getting some time without Bianca too! Keep yourself sane. :D I reckon you'd look awesome with short hair, but then since I got all mine chopped off I am in love with it. Seriously, the shower time saving alone is miraculous. :)
    The studded jacket is also amazing. Really works with the cute dress.

  8. I go through phases of growing and chopping my hair too. I love mixing things up though. That feeling after a big hair change is great.
    Also I just love this outfit. It's a wonderful mix of edgy and girly - which I always enjoy.

  10. Your dress is so much fun and I love it with the leather jacket.

    I'm sure it must have been so nice to get away from the house, but I'd probably have Bianca in my mind the whole time too!

  11. I love the girly dress with the leather jacket. I love putting together looks like that!

    Chopping your hair off is always such an amazing feeling. It's like getting a new dress or a new accessory, except you get to wear it all the time! haha. The same with coloring it. I kind of want to go red, but I like to do the temporary hair dye and I've been advised that it'll probably look weird once it starts to wash out. :\

  12. Love how you've rocked up the pretty pink with a leather biker. So cool!

  13. I love the rocker glam going on here - the dress is so cute but it's ramped up with that jacket!!

    I can totally relate on being out without your baby, you do miss them but it's a nice feeling to eat with both hands and talk to other adults every now and then!

  14. Saw your hair on IG ;) It looks good! I'm glad you had a chance to get out. I know after even a weekend with Baby Boy, I'm ready for Eric and I to have a date night, so I can imagine. LOVE your jacket, btw, and how lucky are you to have a friend the same size as you!

  15. You look so awesome in this outfit :) I can't believe your jacket is from F21. It is so cool. I think everyone is getting the bug to chop off their long hair lately haha. I just cut off mine and it was so refreshing. Glad you were able to have a fun night out too.

  16. Oh man, are diapers really that expensive? Everyone says that but I'm scared to find out for myself. You look adorable! -♥- Rachel (For the Birds)

  17. This is exactly how I would wear this dress! Only it's way too cold to even think about that dress. I wore it on NYE and froze to death...and I stayed inside. So, I'm glad you are able to give it some life. It's beautiful on you & I wish we were close enough to always share clothes. Andddd I love your new haircut and I can't believe you're like a few months older than Kev, hahaha.
