On this week's episode of Wedding Wednesday, we're talking date night outfits! I've teamed up with Adore Me, an online lingerie retailer, to share my favorite date nights, outfit ideas and what I wear underneath to feel my best.

Matt and I have pretty busy schedules, so we try to find time each week, or every other, to reconnect, decompress and simply enjoy each other's company. We never want to stop pursuing each other, and going on regular dates helps to keep the spark aflame.

A Casual Walk on the Beach, with an Ice Cream Cone!

Date Idea
Grab a sweet treat with your sweetie and walk the sandy shoreline until the sun goes down. Grab two different flavors so you can share, or one big sundae with two spoons! Bonus - take your pup along with you and get him/her a vanilla soft serve! They'll love it and you will get a kick out of watching them lick their way through the frozen goodness.

Outfit Idea
Ice cream for dinner is my favorite, and I will (almost) always choose a cone over a salad. For this simple, classic date idea, I would opt for something comfortable and oversized. This cold shoulder dress is perfect for summer nights. Pop your lace-up sandals in a straw tote when you hit the sand!

The Adore Me: Vivianne Unlined set is the perfect addition to this beachy look. The pretty scallop lace details make for an extra bit of sexy that no one will know about... until your S.O. finds it later ;)

A Romantic Dinner at a New Restaurant, or an Old Favorite

Date Idea
Scout out a new place that neither of you have tried, or make reservations at one of your favorite spots. Either way, it's a great excuse to get a little dressed up, share a bottle of wine and chat about your day. Take turns asking each other open-ended questions that really make you think - you can always learn something new about your partner! Try something on the menu you've never had before, or get two favorites and share!

Outfit Idea
There's nothing like the feeling of a LBD, amiright? And an all black look can make you feel ultra sexy. Keep your makeup natural, but add a bold red lip and some falsies for a more dramatic look, without the clean-up of a smokey eye. I'm digging chokers these days, so I paired this dress with a velvet one to give the scallop detail a bit more of an edge. To soften the look, ditch the choker and add a delicate necklace - or no necklace at all!

I would go for a lacy set under this LBD and the Adore Me: Devyn Push-Up set is spot on. It can be worn strapless and has removable padding (if you want the girls a little more tucked in).

Wine by the Fire, with S'mores (or More Ice Cream!)

Date Idea
Sometimes the most romantic dates are the ones where you never even leave the house! You don't have to get dressed up for all outings, and your backyard is a perfect venue for an intimate date night. Whether you're sharing a bottle of wine around a campfire, making dinner and picnicking on the lawn, or simply grabbing pizza and a movie and cozying up on the couch - your home is a great place to wind down and relax together. Plus, you're already home (after the wine kicks in) - if you catch my drift ;)

Outfit Idea
If you follow me, you know I have a major love for boyfriend jeans. Let's be real, they're basically work-appropriate pajama pants. At home, they're the perfect almost loungewear, so if you're planning an at-home date night, these would be perfect to feel a little more put together. Throw on a knit cardi or bring a blanket if it's chilly out. Indoor/outdoor slippers are something no one should have to live without - invest in a good pair and I promise you, you won't regret the traction or warmth they provide. Pop the bottle of vino and get to relaxing!

No need for cleave tonight - opt for a comfy bralette instead. This Adore Me: Shana Unlined would be great under a boyfriend tee, and on it's own!

  1. I went to a wedding here several years ago and fell in love. The wedding venues chicago are beautiful and I was so incredibly impressed and charmed with this place that when I got engaged, we didn't even shop around. It was this place or bust.
