Petite Fashion Challenge #18: Impress Your Date

I'm excited to participate in my second Petite Fashion Challenge! This month's challenge is hosted by the super adorable Amber from Easy Petite Looks.

When it comes to dressing for impressing my own date {that would be husband Dalles - pronounced like the city Dallas}, I tend to wear what I feel best in and what I think I look best in; basically, I pretty much always dress for myself. Selfish, I know.

D + me in my abominable snowman gloves {it was freezing}
But for this challenge I decided to directly ask my beloved D what he wants to see me wear. While I know him well enough to know what he likes, I wanted to know exactly what he preferred. His answer? Perfectly specific: My 7 FAMK Dojos, my black dress pants, my glasses, button-up blouses, my hair in a pony tail, and the color red. 

So after nearly 5 years of togetherness, with almost 4.5 of that in blissful {but you better bet your britches not in the least bit perfect} marriage, Dalles is getting exactly what he wants to see me in for date night two nights in a row. You're welcome, love.

{WARNING: Sorry for the completely subpar photos taken on the fly with a new lens that we're still trying to figure out.}

Thanks again to Amber for hosting! I'm excited to see how everyone else dresses to impress their dates so I can steal your outfit ideas! ; )

PS: If you'd like to know about that exact moment in which Dalles and I met nearly 5 years ago, read Maigen's first-hand eye-witness here. And yes, I am totally somewhat embarrassingly clueless.
