Since life around here has been mostly dirty diapers and late night feedings, it was nice to get out with Trevor to celebrate his graduation from fellowship a few weeks ago. I had previously anticipated I wouldn’t be able to make it since our sweet boy was due just a few days before but since he came a bit early and my mom was in town, she urged me to go and enjoy a night out.
I fought her a little and then realized it may be a good idea and after all Trevor’s hard work I wanted to be there to celebrate with him. The dinner was at Fulton Market Kitchen which we had never been to. It’s in the West Loop and such a cool space. There is amazing art at every corner and the night we were there they had a ceramist making pieces.
When it came to figuring out what to wear, I immediately knew I would turn to Rent The Runway. My body is still changing post baby and nursing can provide a whole additional realm of challenges when getting dressed. I chose a few options online but this pink number was what I was hoping to wear. I loved that it had thick straps, pockets and some flair in the skirt. It’s a super thick material making you feel secure and and the subtle pattern is really pretty in person. As far as size, I say order true to your normal cocktail dress size and thanks to Rent The Runway you can always get an additional dress in the next larger size to be safe. If you are looking for what to wear to a summer wedding, I can’t reccomend this enough!
I decided to pair it with my new tassel earrings I’m clearly obsessed with and this adorable Cult Gaia bag that I borrowed from Jess. You can get on the wait list like I did for the next release on a few different sites that I linked above!
We had such a wonderful time at dinner and celebrating all of Trevor’s hard work. After 26 years of school and the craziest year of fellowship, I’m so proud of him for making it through and still being there for me. I wish he had a bit more time off than just the weekend but I’m so happy he’s enjoying his new job and his hours are so much better! Having him home in the evenings with Zain is such a welcome change and I’m excited for our new normal.
Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend and here’s to hoping the rain holds off this week!
We’re not great at selfies but I wanted a picture to remember our first date night and all Trevor’s hard work!
My mom did such a wonderful job taking our picture 🙂
