Spring-time Date Ideas
Spring has sprung! Well, apparently. We are in that strange phase of faux-Spring, where the weather Gods confuse us with perfect skies one minute and temperatures in the minus the next.
Regardless, it will get warm soon…and you know that that means? It means stripping off the layers we have been confined to for so long and with that comes pretty slip dresses, balmy evenings and well, love in the air.
When the mercury rises there is a certain je ne sais quoi that permeates the atmosphere. Suddenly we are in the mood for lurve and couples everywhere start leaving the house after months of hibernation and Netflix on the couch.
So when this mood strikes, what to do? Where to go? The world is your oyster lovers and there is more to romance than a GOT marathon.
Go on a Picnic
Ain’t nothing better than a bit o’ cheese, wine and a comfy blanket on a deliciously warm evening. Oh and your lover, of course. Take a drive to the lake, the beach, whatever tickles your, um, fancy and snuggle in for an evening watching the sunset and if you really settle in, the stars.
What to wear? A ever-so-slightly sheer blouse with the Lemonade bralette below is perfectly pared back but brimming with feminine charm.
Create a restaurant at home
Is there anything more delightful than coming home after a long day and having a home-cooked meal waiting for you? I think not. But to make this idea a little spesh, take it further by creating a fancy restaurant- feel at home. Create some mood lighting with some scented candles, set the table, lay out some fresh blooms and create a seductive menu with oysters, champagne, a sinful dessert and a main course that you know they’ll love. Even better, being at home means that you can open the door in less than you might out in public, like the Flirty Cross-over set, below.
Go to a gig
You know that song that’s your song? The one that you both secretly know marks when you first totally fell for each-other? If you could bottle that song up, it would be the ultimate love potion. The next best thing? Find romance in music and head off to a gig together. The sweaty bodies, the dancing, the beat of the music…and a totally acceptable place for getting awfully close on the DF…yes, a gig is sure to ignite passion and who knows, you may find your song.
Pair the Indie bodysuit over a pair of tight jeans and your date won’t be able to focus on the band…
Take a staycation
Who doesn’t love a good mini-break? But trying to fit a romantic getaway into the 48 hours between Friday and Monday can be tough. The solution? A staycation, of course! The beauty of staying in your own city is that you can explore an area you wouldn’t usually frequent with a short commute and absolutely no stress. Bonus, there is no cleaning and you can stay in your bathrobes and eat room-service all day (and night) if you want! If you do decide to get dressed, you can try local restaurants and bars and explore a new part of town. Winner!
A staycation is also the perfect excuse to bust out a gorgeous silky romper like the Frankie Romper in Forrest below that you can lounge around in while looking like the goddess you are.
