When Chris and I first started dating, our schedules were busy, we lived +/- 30 minutes apart, and we’d mostly only see each other on the weekends and we quickly realized that one date night during the week was crucial to our relationship. We started to make date night once a week (typically Thursday’s) a priority to help break up the week and spend some one-on-one time, away from our roommates.
Now that we live together, a majority of our date nights are spent at home, cooking dinner together, opening a bottle of wine, and watching a movie we’ve been dying to see. We do try to get out a few times a month for date night – seeing a movie, grabbing dinner, trying a new place for drinks – but once the cold temperatures roll around, the last thing I want to do is leave our apartment and freeze my ass off.
Enter the chicest black sweater, that’s under $40.
If I can put together an outfit that looks chic and keeps my cozy, I’m all for it. Especially for date night.
Paired with a light-washed pair of black jeans and a great pair of black pumps, I can stay warm and still look put together for date night! I actually even wore this outfit, paired with my faux fur leopard coat (under $100!), for New Year’s Eve dinner. The fit of these Madewell jeans is so good, too. Tight where you want them to be, lose to fit all the date night food and drinks, and a killer wash. I loved them so much, I also picked them up in a light wash.
What’s your favorite date night outfit during the winter months?
