After our amazing dinner at Jean Georges I wasn’t sure whether our second date night stand a chance to compete, but the truth is that our dinner at Marea was absolutely amazing, the seafood there is so fresh and the sea urchin pasta was simply the best I have had that husband and I almost want to order another one to share after we finished our own portion. I think Marea is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC now.
Since I’ve already got dolled up for our Jean Georges dinner and Marea doesn’t have as strict of a dress code I decided to do a more business casual look to match husband’s attire for the evening. I recycled most of the outfit I had from the evening before but switched out the ruffle mini skirt with my jogger pants that I’ve been wearing on this trip and paired with a high heel for a more dressy look with the otherwise casual pants. My suite case had limited space and I need to do a lot of mix and match of same things. This Zara diagonal stripe top is very versatile, you can tuck it in or leave it out for a more flirty and flowy look and the material is so easy to manage, it doesn’t wrinkle easily and so lightweight therefore a perfect piece to pack on the go. So which date night outfit do you like more?
A side story for this pair of Loubs, I have been looking for it for 5 years and finally found it on eBay with my size for a fraction of the cost. This pair of limited Som1 was a collaboration between Christian Louboutin and Peter Som, it debuted back in 2007 and I fell instantly in love with the chunky silver heel and sweetheart toe box when I saw it on another girl. However this was already 2 years after the shoe came out and no longer in production. So after many searches and waiting and a few almost purchase attempts I finally got my hands on one that is my size. I guess fashion favors those who are persistent and relentless in search for their perfection. 🙂
