Express Style: Fall {ready} Date Night

September's are always a busy month for us. Between taking in the last days of summer before school starts, fashion week kicking off, and birthdays, I feel like it's nearly impossible to sneak a night off.  Somehow we caught a break over the weekend and headed out for a quick dinner at one of our favorite, quiet spots down the street. We grabbed a tiny table outside, taking advantage of one of the first cool autumnal nights before it heated up again early in the week and indulged in amazing garlicky pasta and tons of bread. Obviously no date night is complete without a heavenly dessert so we shared some tiramisu and a couple of coffees before heading back to the chaos of September. 

As far as my look goes, since we got lucky with a breeze I took a chance and broke out the suede boots for the first time this season and paired them with some new finds from Express. I am seriously obsessed with this wine hued patent leather skirt and {stretchy} floral lace up top, both just under $50. New seasons call for new textures to draw in inspiration and this skirt is doing just that for me. It's going to be amazing with chunky knits and over the knee boots. Eep! The top is definitely getting thrown on with my high waisted flares and a suede moto jacket when the temperature heads in the right direction.

If you haven't been to Express in a minute you HAVE to check out their latest offerings, obviously I'm all about their mini skirts right now, but they have some other amazing finds, including bodysuits.
