Eat Pray Wear Love: Spring Date Idea

Spring Date Idea

Brandon and I spend every day together. Working side-by-side comes with its challenges, but we enjoy getting to be together everyday. In fact, it feels really strange when we go even just a few hours without seeing each other during the work day. Even though we see each other all the time, we still make it a point to date each other. Carving out that time and calling it a "date" just brings about a different feeling during that time together. Some of our favorite dates are when we can combine both of our interests. For Brandon, that's biking and for me, it's food. For this date, we did just that.
I chose these cute pom shorts and sweater for our day date, then slipped into this easy, breezy coral reef number for dinner. It's all from J. Mclaughlin, which just opened a location in Cherry Creek. 

Their whole store embodies classic style with current relevance. I can see so many of their styles pairing especially well with a trip to Cape Cod or the Hamptons. 

What are some of your favorite ways to date your husband?

  20. I love this post! I totally agree that it is so important to still make a point to date each other. That's usually about food for me too, but I should really think more broadly about it. My husband loves biking too, so that would be fun!

  22. You look so beautiful in both looks, Leah! I love those pom pom shorts, too cute, and that dress is so lovely! My hubby and I are huge foodies, so for our date nights,we typically like to find new spots to dine at in NYC or revisit some of our favorites in Brooklyn! Afterwards, if it's a nice evening, we'll just walk around and enjoy the weather! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a lovely weekend, girlie!

    And speaking of cuteness (oh dear, thrice in one single comment), my weekly Friday link-up is live and on the blog now, babe, and I would love for you to come and share this outfit xoxo

  29. Your pom pom shorts are so cute and I like your springy dress for dinner. I think taking time to go on dates and enjoy each other's company is really important as a couple :)
