Que Bella – Swoop

Husband always feels under-dressed when we have Date Night. I’ve explained to him that it’s the only time I can wear my nice clothes that are not work or daily wear appropriate. Like the Swoop Top, which I have in Punk Floral and the Solid Navy & Solid Burnished Brown. It’s a very lovely blouse but the tiny threads in the back ripped as soon as I put it on. It’s still too warm for cardigans on Date Night and the back opening is too low and exposed for a bra so I tried one of those adhesive backless bras.  Worked like a charm! It also felt nice not having straps digging in and under-wire poking you. I felt very comfortable.

I paired the Swoop Top in Navy with Fluted Skirt in Ivory. I added my Louboutin Puglia Espadrilles in Snakeskin. I originally finished off my look with the Classic Pave’ Link Bracelet and Necklace and my Kate Spade Queen of the Nile Camel Clutch but ditched the jewels when our original plans fell through and it was just dinner and drinks.

We had a wonderful meal at a Mexican Restaurant, La Fonda, that had a beautiful, enclosed outdoor patio. And the space was big enough for a party! I need to start looking for and reserving a space for The Boy’s Graduation Party in June. We have so many High Schools here, everything books up early.

We ended the evening at Bar Du Mon Ami and I had my favorite, the Hemingway Daquiri. I like mine tart not sweet but certainly not Double Rum like Hemingway supposedly preferred.

It was nice to be able to wear the Swoop Top. Especially now that I have the proper backless bra.

Have a Great Day!

    You look fab! I cannot I imagine a backless bra – at this point I need a pulley system!

      WMM – Thanks! I was a little worried too but things stayed in place.

    Lovely outfit, you look beautiful! Whenever my husband and I have the chance for a date night, we always jump at the chance to dress up – it's so rare that we get some time to ourselves, it's fun to dress up a bit.
