Monday night out

I like to listen to NPR. I blame my father, for if you drive with him it's all you will listen to, and I logged a good many hours as a passenger in his car. At the time I didn't love it, but eventually it grew on me, and now, especially since NPR has a very convenient app, I listen to my favorite shows on demand.

Sean and I were listening to Ask Me Another on Sunday and at the beginning of the show they announced that the next live recording would be featuring Dennis Quaid, Christian Cooke, and Cary Elwes! It would be at the Bell House theater in Brooklyn New York, and it would be on November 14th (which was tomorrow, at the time, and I had a mini freak out at the idea of being in the same room as Cary Elwes).

It was a very last minute plan, and normally heading into the city for a late night on a Monday would not thrill me, but we had such a great time at the show, it was hilarious, the space was small and intimate, I laughed and relaxed and forgot about needing to go to work today.

I must also mention that if you are a Princess Bride fan and you are in New York, or at least New York adjacent, Cary Elwes will be at a book signing and a screening of the Princess Bride this week - check out his twitter for the details.

  1. Those kinds of date nights are always the best. What a great memory!

  2. That sounds like such a fun experience and a nice distraction (also, and I know you know I'm going to say this because I'm a sucker for leopard, but how awesome is that clutch?).

  4. Glad to know you were able to enjoy yourself and disconnect from everything :)
    More evenings like that are required !!

  5. GAHH!!!! How did I not know about The Princess Bride stuff this week?!! Guess I've been too focused on Fantastic Beasts, haha. If it wasn't in Brooklyn I'd totally go. Favoriteeeeee.
    And I always love that top!

  6. You are so date night ready in this gorgeous blouse and the best fun events are always last minute. Those boots are TDF. .

  7. Love this outfit for date night. It's perfect! Great boots and I love the blouse/top.


  8. That is a great date night outfit! :) I'm actually a little ad your blouse wasn't linked as it's really, really pretty! I guess that's the benefit of consignment store shopping - you get great pieces you're unlikely to see on anyone else!

    Hope you're having an awesome week :)

  9. Sounds like a great night! This top is gorgeous, love the colors on you!

  10. That show sounds like so much fun! I would love to see all three of those people in a room together, I just finished watching a show on Netflix in which Cary Elwes and he remains one of my favourite actors. I also have to say just how much I love this date night outfit, it's the perfect mix of all black sophistication and colourful fun, and it couldn't suit you any better - it's like you summed up your style in one look and I love it!

  11. I love the pattern of your pretty! It pairs so well with the leopard :)


  12. I haven't read Cary Elwes' book, but I would totally go to his book signing if I was in New York :)

  13. Totally in love with this look -- chic yet a little sexy!! Hope you had the best time!


  14. That leopard print clutch!! I need one! :)

    Love the boots too! :)
