My last several posts have reflected the mood of the summer, which has been road-trip-tastic and comfortable.  But every Stylin’ Mamma needs a break from cutoffs and Birks, so before we head to Tahoe next week for the big summer vacay (read: two weeks alternating between swimsuits and running shorts) I’m planning to hit the happy hour circuit with my husband for a Friday date night.

We do the happy hour date thing about every two weeks, and I oscillate between jeans & beers and martinis & heels.  This week I’m feeling the need for a shot o’ glamour and methinks these graphic heels are just the way to set the mood.
A shoe like this needs little embellishment; if the weather cooperates then a silky tank and frayed white jeans will do the trick (I don’t know why, but ripped jeans are speaking to me this season). Because I never met big jewelry I didn’t covet, I’ll throw on a big sculptural necklace to pull it all together.

Of course, this be San Francisco, meaning a lightweight trench is ALWAYS in order (grr), and in case we can’t find a seat I’ll bring a bag with a long strap to keep hands free for my cocktail.  If time permits, maybe I’ll even find a way to squeeze in a mod mani beforehand (ha!).  
Date night AND a manicure?  Hey, mommy can dream.
