The Modest Budget: Summer Date Night

I know, I know, I did orange last week... but I just find myself wearing it all the time these days! 

Fun fact, I found this shirt in a Maryland Target because we had gone up there for a job that lasted a few more days than we had planned for... and I ran out of clothes to wear! Good old Target came through; it was less than $20 ($14.99, I believe). 
The skirt was also a deal; I got it on sale for less than $10 at Charlotte Russe last year. In fact, I liked it so much that I bought one in another color and pattern! This slim fit makes it great for the loose top (even though it's a tad on the short side).
These pictures are from a night at National Harbor, one of our favorite date night spots while we worked in Maryland. I loved the colorful walls and the fun atmosphere down there. There was a family-friendly night life, even in the middle of the week! Lots of good eats and close places to bar-hop, too.
Shirt: Target (less than $20)
Skirt: Charlotte Russe (less than $10)
