Matt and I went on a date yesterday. Which isn't really a big deal, I suppose. We're a young, childless couple with time to kill (we could debate that...). It's just that we are social people and any time we plan anything, we always end up inviting friends. Hence, more often than not, our intimate dinner plans turn into a group dinner with an after-party at our house. I love those last-minute evenings with friends but at the end of the night, I've hardly seen or talked to Matt because I was too busy discussing responsible pet ownership, sparkly clothing and birth with the ladies (obviously, I don't contribute to the birth conversation so much, it's just that A LOT of my friends have recently had babies and so it comes up occasionally (and by occasionally I mean often... I'm pretty much an expert on birthing right now, so if you have any questions, ask away...)). Wow, that was a long sentence...ramble much?

Anyways, last night we decided to go out... just the two of us. A quick little outfit shoot, a few vodka, water, bar-limes (for me), Foster's (for him), nachos, an apple blossom (for me) and brownies (for him) = a good night. I think I could handle going on dates with Matt for the rest of my life...:)

Date nights are the best! You look stunning, and I love your photo location.

Megan Wolf said...

so glad that the two of you got to have a little date night to yourselves! totally know what you mean about it turning into a group date, always used to happen with the hubby and I before the move. Its nice to have a little time with just you and your man every now and again. Great outfit. love the material of the skirt, and those flowers on the jacket are just adorable! really cute look. you pretty much always knock it out of the ball park, even when you aren't really trying. kinda hate ya for that. lol. and p.s. your comment about babies, so funny. glad your a birthing expert, I will keep it in mind! ha.

Ah, my husband and I are the same way - we always seem to invite other people on our "dates." I love that gray skirt, btw. Looks very chic and expensive.

You two are too cute! And I LOVE the outfit, that Claudia Firenze purse is awesome!

Hope you have many many more lovely date nights ahead! S.

Linda said...

Thats funny, it never turns into a group date for us....we kinda don't like other people...we only like each other. I know what you guys are like though. You got dessert???? Way to show him who is worth it!

The outfit is obviously flawless, but I really love your undone updo. Your hair just look so pretty. And the fabric that skirt is made of is gorgeous!!!

Aren't date nights fun? They always remind me how much fun I have when it's just the two of us. And I am worried that now that all of my friends are married I will have to hear those same birthing conversations very soon!

Yeah for date night! Gorgeous skirt!

briannelee said...

Aw, so cute. I love date nights! I have a similar skirt, but mine is a vintage skating skirt I think. I like the way it looks with the blazer... might have to copy :)

Amy said...

Let me first start out by saying: Wow, such a lovely date outfit!! You look absolutely perfect from head to toe!

Second: I know just what you mean.... the same thing happens when my bf and we try to plan a date nights. I love hanging with friends, but it is SO important to have nights alone once and a while.

So glad you two finally got your alone date! :)
