Last Friday, my husband and I went out on a date. It’s something we’ve tried extra hard to do at least twice a month ever since Asa was born; I think several people gave us the advice to make a point to continue dating each other after marriage and especially after kids, and I think it’s great advice! Not only does it keep each other the focus of your relationship and remind you both to value each other as friends and lovers, but it also teaches and reassures your kids as they grow older that their parents have a solid relationship. No matter how much they protest seeing you kissing your husband/wife, deep down they totally like it. 😉
No matter where we plan to go, I try to get dressed up. You might think it would be hard for a gal who mostly wears skirts to dress up even more, but it’s not; there’s always a fancier way to wear your staples! And even though this outfit is basically just a skirt and tee, I think the very slight off-the-shoulder of the top and the addition of jewelry and heels and actually brushing and styling my hair down for once makes it feel date-night worthy.
And can I just stop to gush over this jewelry for a minute? It’s all from Rocksbox, and I am utterly in love. The ring is so delicate and slightly Celtic-looking in nature which I adore, and the necklace is the perfect amount of simple with sparkle, and these earrings! After just one round of feedback my stylist totally nailed it! I highly recommend testing them out for yourself — there’s nothing to lose if you use eccentricowlblogxoxo. A free month of jewelry to start you out, and if you decide it’s not your thing at the end you can cancel your subscription easily! But seriously guys, why would you WANT to cancel getting pretty jewelry in your mailbox all the time? Yeah. I wouldn’t.
It’s saying something that I wore all of the pieces together; I am not a huge jewelry wearer and will usually only wear one piece at once. But if I could have more like this, I’d wear jewelry more often I think!
What are your favorite things to do on date nights? Do you dress up or dress down?
