This is what I wore for our second date night since Thomas was born. My co-teacher came over to babysit the little nugget, and Robert and I hit the town to see the musical "Once." It was super good. The best part about it (and there were plenty of good parts) happened before the show even started. The set is a bar, and a half hour before the musical starts, the bar is open and you can walk up on stage and get a drink. It was so, so awesome to stand on that big stage and look out at the audience. As a sometimes actress (community theater for sure), it was really exciting. It was also exciting to sip red wine from a straw (covered cups only to protect the set) and hang out in the Irish world of "Once." 

This outfit was a last-minute decision. Robert helped me pick it out. I love this striped dress. On my wrist: bangles and my Fitbit. I wear my Fitbit all the time because I'm trying to get lots of steps (a Fitbit is like a fancy pedometer), but it isn't the most fashion-forward accessory. I've decided I like it more when there are bangles hanging out next to it. 

We went to see the show at the Belk Theater in uptown Charlotte, and parked in the city's best parking garage: The Hearst Tower. I am all about its multiple pretty levels. We were on the Dr. Suess level this weekend. So fun!

You've got to love those random beanie hats! Also: You've got to love my shoes. I mean, I guess you don't have to, but I sure do. They are very, very high. Platform + heels = Me falling twice. That's just math. Fun, fashion-y math.

That dress looks lovely on you! As do the heels. I love the movie "Once," but I have yet to see the stage version. Nice that you guys got to have such a great night out :)

Oh, a lovely date night. You look scrumptious. Yes, stages do have magical power - great idea to have the bar up there with covered cups.

Look at you! I love the stripes and the cut of that dress. I've been thinking about getting involved with community theater too, but I'm a little timid so far :3
