Last night, the man and I had a dinner date at Brazikat, a Brazilian steakhouse in the St. Louis area. Being a vegetarian, this was clearly the man’s choice, but thankfully, I still had lots of yummy options. If you’re from the area or planning a visit, let me just say – the grilled pineapple can’t be beat!

While the food was delicious and the live music created a wonderful ambiance, my favorite part (besides my great company, of course) was getting a chance to dress up. The weather was cool, but not too cold, so it was a great chance to wake up the legs from their winter hibernation by baring a lot of leg!
I’ve had this blouse for a while but have only had a chance to show it on the blog in one grainy photo. The dramatic ruffle is so lovely, and I find asymmetrical hemlines very flattering.

I finished the look off with open-toe booties, a printed clutch, and delicate, but slightly tough looking, jewelry.
All in all, I was quite happy with this look. It has a mix of romance and edge, that I particularly enjoy.

What’s more, this outfit was super comfortable. As I’ve gotten older, I find comfort increasingly important. Feeling comfortable makes me feel sexy. A flowy top like this disguises areas I’d rather not show off a lot while the deep v-neck and short skirt show off assets I love to flaunt.

What makes you feel sexy? Are you a fan of large ruffles?
P.S. Are you a closed-eye smiler? I fight against this every time I take pictures, but it’s often the same as pics from when I was a year old – squinty eye smiler for life! 😉
