Mama’s Night Out + Embracing the Chaos

Some weeks, I’m out and about with the littles all day – staying in for dinner, bedtime for the boys and I’m laying on the couch {usually with a glass of wine – or two} catching up on my DVR. Not a bad night, if you ask me. I enjoy my chill time after a busy day!

BUT Some weeks – like last week – I’m out and about SOLO living it UP!

I don’t know what it was, but last week was CRAZY. I had a local photo shoot one day {more on that later!}, a super yummy sushi dinner catching up with my girlfriend another night, followed by a bloggers night out in Philadelphia the next night.

And don’t even get me started on the weekend {high tea out with my girlfriends!} which was also crazy busy, not to mention super fun. 

It was just one of those crazy weeks, with SO MUCH going on. Don’t get me wrong, I loved each and every busy moment, but it was a lot for this mama who doesn’t go out back to back weeknights!


And you can guess that this week is very laid back – not much going on, which is awesome because I can play catch up before another busy week that seems to be shaping up starting next Monday!

It all works out, because I would much rather be busy than not!

I enjoy the chaos, sometimes I think it even fuels me a bit, but it would be nice if everything would just spread itself out, so I could enjoy nights out a little more, without having to run around like a crazy person getting myself together and the littles in bed before rushing out the door.

But I guess the universe doesn’t work like that.

And at least I have the time to curl my hair, can’t complain about that!

Since I did get all gussied up for a blogger event, I would love to share a little bit about my “Blogger Professional” uniform. I think there is a fine line between being over and under dressed for a night out. And obviously the weather plays a huge part in any look.

For this night out I decided to go with a pair of ankle skinny jeans in a darker wash, paired with a tailored tee that has a little additional coverage in the back to cover up the skinny jean bum situation.

Side Note: If you have the chance to get your hands on these tailored tees, you won’t regret it! I think I have 5 colors and it is just the perfect top to casually dress up any look. The material is majestic and it’s super flattering. Not to mention any necklace looks amazing with it.

Also, these block heels! I got them on super sale and have been waiting for the perfect excuse to bust them out. They are 4″ and I was never uncomfortable in them – at all. I’m kicking myself for not getting them in the black as well because they are so pretty with all the straps!


Back to the look – I enjoy the blue pop of color in the top, which I believe to be muted a bit by the darker wash jeans and the grey leather jacket – which if you don’t have one in your life, you definitely need one. Nordstrom Rack always has amazing ones on sale!

So there you have it, my outfit for a fun night out in the city. I was invited to the Cheesecake Factory with a bunch of other Philadelphia local bloggers to try out their ENTIRE new menu.

Yes, you read that right – the ENTIRE new menu.

I’m still stuffed talking about it days later, but it was SO GOOD.

I get fun opportunities like this fairly frequently and I don’t always get the chance to take advantage of them. But living in the city and being able to hop in a quick Uber downtown is amazing at this point in my life, so I’m glad I was able to participate! It was fun to connect with local bloggers in the area and did I mention the food? Yum!

There were so many amazing food + drink creations that I got to try, I’m not sure I could pick a favorite! BUT I did really enjoy the Chicken, Mango and Avocado Salad – they chef put on a little demo for us so we got to see exactly how it all goes down, and how easy it is to make something delicious and ‘Skinnylicious!’ I have a copy of the exact recipe, so I hope to give that a try and share on the blog with you soon!

I’m excited to share more of my crazy week with you in the coming days as I try to unwind from it and gear up for another busy week ahead!

Embrace the chaos folks, and put on a cute outfit while you do it!

You’ll feel fabulous, I promise!
