Yay, my first occasion for wearing the Kate Spade polka dot dress for a night out, the perfect venue for her (I've only worn it one other time to work, and she was covered up with a cardigan). We wanted to go out tonight for a date because our nanny was available to stay late. DH saw that Yo-Yo Ma was playing with the SF symphony, but all the tickets were sold out for days. Last night I checked the website again, just in case, and I happened to find two tickets available, and they were really nice seats towards the front. We snapped them up, and later that night I checked again and everything was sold out again. So we really lucked out. We have never been to the symphony together, and the last time we were in that symphony building was on our wedding night 12 years ago, when they had a Black and White Ball there that we attended. So it was a big night for us! The music was awesome...Yo-yo Ma is an amazing cellist and you can tell that he really enjoys what he's doing and is passionate about it. The orchestra and conductor were great too...fun to watch and lovely music.
It was really nice to get dressed up to go out together...we haven't done that in a long time (usually we go out for a quick dinner & sometimes a movie--usually pretty casual). DH wore a suit & tie--I think he looked quite dapper. I wore the dotty dress with the Kate Spade ruffled trench on top (first time to wear the trench!). The trench lining is very cool--it has a map of New York. The kids had fun seeing us all dressed up too. So much fun!
