Brett and I were able to hit the town for our first date night since Christmas break last weekend. These nights are pure gold for us as they are for most couples with young kids and I always enjoy a reason to put on a dress. We went to see Quartet at our downtown theater and then had dinner at Shuga's. I am obsessed with their salmon bruschetta and their atmosphere can't be beat in town. Next time you're in Colorado Springs you need to stop in and try it.
I tend to stick with the dress, tights, cardigan combo when it's chilly out but I'd recently seen Katie style a similar skirt with a sweater and happened to have something I thought would work. It felt a little more casual and comfortable for a cold night out with my love. I think I've also found my favorite new shoes for spring and summer.
Outfit Details: Sweater, thrifted. Dress, tights, flats, Target. Vintage velvet bag, thrifted. Gold watch, gifted. Stone necklace c/o Moorea Seal.
Brett and I were running a bit late to catch the show but I still insisted on taking a few outfit photos because special occasions need to be documented in my world. Ha! We pulled into a paid parking lot across from the theater and one building had a fun mural of horses running across the middle. We got out to take just TWO MORE photos and saw a sweet couple taking what I imagine were their engagement shots by a professional. It was sweet. I liked thinking about our time as newly engaged sophomores in college and how I really only wanted to spend time with Brett and could care less about my Western Civ. classes. I still can't get enough time with this guy. We could go on date nights every night and I know I would always wish for more.
That's the way it should be, huh.
