Currently Craving: The Date Night Edition

I am a teacher, and school’s out, so that means that I should get to enjoy at least one romantic night out with my husband, right? Well, sadly, that hasn’t been able to happen for us yet. With him working odd hours, and me with my part-time summer gig, we have been like two ships passing in the night. But in the event we are able to get in sync, I know just what I’ll wear (of course) and just what we’ll do. My Date Night Plan: Get dressed up and hang out in Downtown Raleigh, something the two of us never do. I have planned a low-key night out that promises lots of ambiance and romance, I can’t wait! But if you need an idea for a night out with your S/O, use this one, I’m sure it’s going to be a hit!

My After- Hours Look

The Shift Dress: I love the shift dress because it shifts the attention from areas (like my tummy) that I don’t want to be seen, to the areas I want to accentuate (like me legs) that I love showing off. In college, my look was a short dress and high heels, and you know how the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”! Check out these short shift dresses. Too sassy!


            

The shift dress paired with any of these heels will bring the look together. I particularly love the two-toned Cole Haans, I love the block heels; appropriate for walking down Glenwood Ave. and Fayetteville St. 
                             

The Restaurant
I have a confession to make. I can cook, but prepare seafood, I cannot. First of all, I don’t like to clean seafood, nor do I really like to touch it, but I do like to eat seafood. In fact, it’s my husband’s all-around favorite, and since he really has no chance of getting seafood at home, we’ll be going to Shuckers Grill and Oyster Bar. My BFF has been raving about this place for over a month now, so we’re going to check it out. The menu looks delicious. I like fried seafood, but they prepare it in a number of ways.
The Bar

After dinner, we’ll head over to check out Foundation, the place everyone is raving about for making the best cocktails. I love the character and chic look of the place, and the fact that you actually have to be an adult to enter. Plus any bar with Rhetoric on the menu is a place worth visiting. I can’t wait to try one of their handcrafted cocktails!

Enjoy the summer nights with that someone special!
