My husband and I really try to make date nights a regular thing. We’ve been doing it our whole marriage. Sometimes a few weeks go by and life happens and the dates just don’t happen. But we were crazy lucky last week to have a nanny stay with us for the week while Brant was on call and I was taking a
choir nerd class to help with the kids. Since I was out of the house by 7 am, our nanny thought it would be easiest to just spend the nights with us and she stayed the whole week. WE LOVED IT!! Not only were my littles in good hands, but after we put the kids to bed at night, Brant & I took advantage of having the lovely Kiara at the house, and we went on THREE dates that week! 🙌🏼
One of the dates started as a photo shoot (but we ended the evening with drinks at 49th State). I packed about 5 different outfits and we hit up a few different locations downtown Anchorage for our shoot. He’s not done editing all the looks but I’ve been DYING to see the finished product on the look I posted today. They turned out so good, y’all! And I can’t wait to see the rest of the edited pics of the other looks that night! I begged and hinted for a week for him to get this look done. He’s been flying a whole bunch so I get it. I’ve been patient. He finished these edits around 1 this morning and I’m in LOVE. Here are a few more of today’s look.
I mean, seriously, you guys. I CANT.
The coat is over 2 years old. One year for Christmas, I told everybody I wanted a Nordstrom gift card and pooled my gift card gifts to get this coat. Such a great investment. I don’t think I spent more than $20 out of pocket for this closet staple when it was all said and done.
Unfortunately, it’s sold out. But keep an eye out for it to see if they restock this bad boy.
Here’s a similar style that’s currently on sale (and is a lot cheaper than what Nordstrom sells).
The rest of the pieces are from the Holy Land, Target. I got the shirt in a small because I was looking for a more fitted look. It’s currently on sale for 20% off and, well you know the shpeel (Save 5% if you use your Red Card. I swear, Target should be paying me or something!).
The fun striped skirt is from their Who What Wear collection. I’m wearing a medium. And guess what? That, TOO, is also on sale for 20% off. Side note: if you click the link, know that I am SO GLAD I didn’t pair it with a striped top like the model. Ummm, no.
And last, but definitely not least, are the shoes. When I was packing for the photo shoot/date night, I had originally packed some black mules/slides to wear with this outfit. But when we got downtown, I felt the fashion gods speaking to me, “Lesli. Save the mules for fall. Show your toes while you can…” They spoke and I listened, folks. I’ll link the mules for you, too.
YOU GUYS. Check this out!!!
EVERYTHING IS 20% OFF RIGHT NOW!! If you do go out and end up getting any of the pieces in today’s post, now’s the time to get them. And then if you do get them, find me (and follow me!) on Instagram at @farnorthfashion or on Facebook (search Far North Fashion), take a picture of your fine self, and tag me in your post!
Thanks for reading! I’ll be linking this week’s looks once my hubby finishes the edits. AHEM, Brant. *cough, cough*
See you next time!
