It was a milestone birthday for my hubby this year, he turned forty. I remember when thirty was old, now forty seems super young, LOL. I love to throw parties and celebrate birthdays in style but that is not him. He preferred to have dinner, just the two of us, and have a low-key evening. He works in sales and is around people all the time and we have a two-year-old, quiet nights are special.I was trying to decide what to wear for his “over the hill” birthday and of course it had to include black. I love LBD’s because they can be worn for almost any occasion. With this one in particular, I have seriously lowered my cost per wear! I have worn this to a birthday party, a wedding, night out with the girls, a graduation, and now a date night. It’s no secret that the LBD is a classic and versatile item that should be in every girl’s closet.Accessorizing the LBD can change the look of it completely! I wore the dress with my birthday present, my very first pair of Louboutin’s! I was seriously Loca for Louboutins and I finally have a pair of my own! These are not everyday mom on-the-go shoes but do work well for the rare nights out. I added my heart Kate Spade bag and of course a firetruck red lip.My hubs and I enjoyed our evening together. We did a dinner and show combo downtown. We attempted to have some drinks after but ended up back at home by eleven – even though we were kid-free for the evening. He and I are no longer the night owls we used to be, but still appreciated an evening alone. My fortieth is not for a while but I hope it’s just as entertaining!
