summer date night ideas

One of my favorite things about summer is that I don't need to wear a jacket when I go on a date! I know this sounds silly, but seriously, I am always cold. Over the years I have found that despite how many times I wear jeans and the perfect tank top I'm always cold. And having to match a jacket with my look doesn't always work.  However; I have found the perfect solution. After some reflecting on past date night outfits, I found that despite what I was wearing, it is always my chest and my arms that were cold. So instead of my staple jeans & a cute top, this summer, I opted for long sleeves and denim shorts. 

The result: an easy, practical, and chic summer date night look

After participating in pre-martial classes through our local Church, B & I have since learned that one of our love languages is quality time together. As a result, we are trying to prioritize summer date nights. There is nothing like coming home after a long day at work (usually for B since it's summer for me) and it's so tempting for him to want to stay at home and basically "unwind." However; in efforts to fill my love language, as an alternative B & I have been taking advantage of nice weather and choosing one of our favorite date night activities; which also happen to be a mood booster.

Some of our favorite summer dates are:
  • Go for walks together- this is a great de-stressor
  • Exercise together- B loves (I'm not sure he would use this word) to bike, while I go for a run
  • Bring dinner to concerts on the beach 
  • Grab grinders, a good read, and watch the sunset on the beach
  • Eat outdoors- We pick places based on their outdoor seating. My favorite thing is to get dressed up for some wine & apps on an outdoor patio. 



  1. You added millennial pink color to the date outfit, it makes everything so in trend yet casually chic. Love the ideas and style guide you provided.
