What I Wore Wednesday: Impromptu Date Night

So originally my What I Wore Wednesday post today was just going to be another work bathroom selfie; to be fair there was an epic story of how it was the fourth dress I tried on before work this morning (the three I laid out just didn't work), how it was far too cold for bare legs and then how I got rained on but you don't have to deal with that boring bullshit excuse for a post because this inadvertently turned into an impromptu date night What I Wore Wednesday!

I went into work today after all the above and it was a fairly average day; I was getting things prepared before we went away tomorrow on holiday (to be fair I didn't really have to handover anything since I just started) and then at 2:45 and then I get this text message from NotBlondeHusband:
urgent text
Edited for those who don't swear like a sailor 
 Apparently the French Air Traffic Controllers are striking today, tomorrow and Thursday and all flights in/out of France as well as any flights flying OVER French air space are cancelled. {Insert favourite expletive here} Then there was a flurry of texts back and forth about what we could do and the fact that I'm off to Brit Mums Live so I have to be back by the 21st and more texts back and forth while NBH called the caretaker for the villa we were staying in and my MIL's husband phoned about the rental cars and I tried not to cry at my desk.

While I was trying not to become the girl who cries at her desk on her 6th day at work NBH managed to get us flights on Friday to Alicante (about 45 minutes from where we were staying) and the caretaker thought she might have been mistaken about the villa being fully booked and was going to get back to us. Long story short we are now leaving on Friday and getting back on the following Friday--so our holiday is slightly delayed and I'll now be arriving into Glasgow only to go home, change suitcases and fly back out but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

So since we'd had all this stress and craziness and we didn't need to pack tonight and Blondie Boy wouldn't be home until after 8pm from a trip to his GG's we decided to have an impromptu date night! The Butchershop Bar and Grill (if you are in Glasgow GO!) has a deal on Tuesday's where you get two steaks, two fries and a bottle of wine for just £30 so we took advantage of the good timing and no small person and enjoyed a spontaneous dinner out which doesn't really happen much with a three year old!

While I say it is an impromptu date night what I wore, it is still what I wore to the office--I didn't change my clothes so minus the flight drama inbetween it's the same post it would have been---I kinda lied about it not being boring bullshit--whoops!


Black Polka Dot Dress
Pink Glitter Statement Manicure

Black White Dot Dress

Black Dress with White Polka Dots, Gap
Black Tank, Marks and Spencers
Cropped Blazer, HM


I got the studded ballet pumps because I needed new work flats and New Look shoes are insanely comfortable and affordable; win win! I also went a little more loud with the statement manicure this week and the one pink glitter nail. I'm definitely totally in love with ring finger manicures but I'm not sure if I'm sold on the pink on pink action or not. What do you think? I'm hopefully going to try and squeeze in a gel manicure before we leave--what colours should I get?

I've been wanting to try polishing one nail a different color. Love the hint of sparkle!

Melaina25 said...

I love your nail polish!! I've been doing this for a while now and always find myself gazing at the sparkle nail - so fun! :) Thanks so much for hosting this link up!

Those flats are perfect! Love the nail polish also :)

Melaina25 said...

Love the nail polish! And your work outfit is super-cute too! I just had my gels removed (erm, I mean I peeled them off after 4 weeks, bad girl) and had the most fantastic neon pink - the manicurist told me it would glow in the dark under UV light, so I could see it if I went clubbing... Ummm, well, it was a fantastic colour despite the lack of clubbing, and I had lots of comments on it. Hope your hols go well, fingers crossed for you!

Melaina25 said...

Simply gorgeous! And your nails look really cute!! =)

I LOVE the nails!! Sucks about the flight but at least you still get to go, right? Have a great time!

Melaina25 said...

Spontaneity is a wonderful thing sometimes! I love that you were able to go straight from work to a date night - you had a perfect dress for it (and love the shoes!). I have had a lime green polish on and hear more comments about it than almost any other single color I have worn!

Melaina25 said...

So glad you were able to salvage your trip. Hope you have a great time. Your outfit is super cute and looove your mani!

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

Your nails are so pretty! That sounds like so much hassle with your going away, glad it's sorted though!

Melaina25 said...

For a minute there I thought your holiday was going to be cancelled altogether?! Arghh! So glad you got it sorted! Yay for sneaking off for dinner I think unexpected dates are always the best. I love your dress and the nails are fab as always x

Melaina25 said...

Despite the craziness at the end of the day you looked simply mah=vah-lous!!!! Have a great vacation/trip.

Melaina25 said...

Aw that's too bad about all the stress - glad it all got sorted, and yes impromptu dates can be just the ticket to make up for all the hassle :)

Melaina25 said...

I love the one glitter nail. It's one of my favorite manicures because I feel like it's an appropriate amount of glitter for the office.

Glad all of your vacation details got worked out! That would've been a bummer. And yay for date nights! We have one tonight. :)

Melaina25 said...

I know how frustrating it is to have flights cancelled due to nonsense strikes. My hubby experienced the same thing when he was in Greece and I just want him home so bad. Love that little black dress, I only went on a date with hubby on a black dress once I believe but it never happened again. Thanks for giving me an idea. :D

Enjoy your date night!

Melaina25 said...

That was exactly my thinking too :)

Melaina25 said...

It was very stressful for a few hours!

Melaina25 said...

Thank you :)

Melaina25 said...

It almost was totally cancelled--at first we were told the villa was fully booked unless we went 19-26 (which I couldn't) thankfully it is all hopefully sorted now!

Melaina25 said...

Thank you :) I'm getting more into doing my nails recently.

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! If you see me Friday at BML I will most likley be knackered and a half!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks for linking up!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks, me too!

Melaina25 said...

Someone told me that the french strike this time every year !??!?!?

Melaina25 said...

Thanks!

Melaina25 said...

I know right? These ones haven't fallen off after one wear like my old pair either!

Melaina25 said...

Thank you! I seriously almost freaked out!

Melaina25 said...

Ooh I got lime green at Brit Mums Live last year and loved it!

Melaina25 said...

Yes it will suck to arrived in Scotland at 9:30am and then leave again for Brit Mums Live at 12:30 but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!

Melaina25 said...

Thank you!

Melaina25 said...

I think you need to buy a black light and have a disco in your house :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! They were so affordable too. I love New Look :)

Melaina25 said...

I'm a sucker for glitter!

Melaina25 said...

Do it! It's such fun and I feel like it's much for age and office appropriate way to wear glitter :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks Kelly! I think this was the first date night we had at the drop of a hat since before BB was born!

Melaina25 said...

If we were going to France it would be one thing but I guess French airspace is affected too! So nuts!

Melaina25 said...

I am honoured!!!

Melaina25 said...

You look gorgeous! Love the mani. Sending you and early Bon Voyage!

Melaina25 said...

Thank you!

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

Bummer about the flight, but at least you look great! I love those ballet flats-- comfy yet stylish! :)

Melaina25 said...

Oh how cool would that be! I might start a petition.... ; )

Melaina25 said...

Sometimes Impromptu Dates are THE BEST! I like your Polka Dot LBD. =)

Melaina25 said...

What a nightmare! Glad you got the holiday sorted and you enjoyed the luxury of an impromptu date night.

Melaina25 said...

I love your manicure! So cute. And I'm sorry to hear about all the flight/villa drama, but I'm so glad it all worked out. Have a lovely holiday!
