Imagine this - Friday night is upon you.   Babysitter is lined up, reservations are made, you've got a cute outfit picked out and date night is set- you're going out and hittin' up ALLLL the hotspots.....  HAHA!  Yeah right.  Parents everywhere are laughing hysterically because we all know how it really goes down.  What's really going to happen is you're going to talk about your kids the whole time, call it a night at 9pm, and you're not painting the town red- you're painting it beige, if anything.  But hey- it's important to do it anyways! And what's better than a great meal out with hubby (plus, let's be honest, not having to cook or clean it - hallelujah!).  So below I put together a cute, summery outfit - perfect for your next date night!  


(Can I please just take a second and shout out my amazing husband who was more than willing to take pictures for me and also, like, nailed it?!).  This adorable blue and white striped lace-up dress is from Old Navy and is under $30!  It's flowy, super lightweight and machine washable (rejoice!!!).  It's ridiculously comfortable.  For your own reference- I'm wearing size large, but I ordered it online so I could get the tall length because the regular was too short on me.


 Here's the link for the dress!  


I paired the dress with a super comfortable pair of Marc Fisher Ltd wedges that I got a couple of years ago and a straw tote that I'm so obsessed with! Overall, I'm so comfortable in this and you truly cannot beat the price point of this dress!!! I guess the only thing left to do.. is schedule a date night so I can wear it!! LOL!

I can't find the link to the exact straw bag, but here are a couple other ones that would be really cute and are also reasonably priced! 

This straw tote  or  this one!
