{Fashion Monday} Date night 

Date night

Because boo and I live in different cities, we don’t get to see each other as much as we would like. We have talked about moving in together and when the time is right we will but for now if I am to be totally honest I am still enjoying the freedom of having my own place, a place I can call my own, a place where I can go chill and have my me time without thinking of the needs of others and I know it’s not always like that when people live together but I am that type of person putting the needs of others before my own.

Every time boo and I meet up we either have a night in, chat like tomorrow will never come or watch movies and on occasions he will be busy on he’s laptop working whilst I am busy on mine blogging (as you do) or if not blogging I am catching up on my K-Dramas. There are other rare occasions that we don’t do any of the above and instead opt for a night out for dinner (mostly) or cinema, provided we both have something we want to see.

This gone weekend was such a weekend (Saturday night to be exact), we wanted to have a date night (though we invited he’s brother and their friend) and went out to Jimmy’s an all-you-can-eat-restaurant. I love these places but also hate them, love them because I am not limited to what I can eat hate them because my eyes are always bigger than my stomach and they can be quite expensive for a picky eater like me.

Though me and boo had decided that we would go out Saturday night he didn’t tell me how early we had to go until 30 minutes before which for someone like me is ample time but I was lost in my blogging all day that I hadn’t showered yet so had to rush.

I decided since I was more likely to spill on myself at the all you can eat place I would just throw together a simple outfit which I wouldn’t shed too many tears if it got ruined by some Indian curry or accidentally dropped some kimchi salad on myself.

I chose to wear a pair of skinny jeans, black top with navy blue cardigan, pumps and my favorite military Jacket. I am not a fashionista but boo liked the outfit and that’s all the verification I needed since I had already approved it myself.

Date night


As I mentioned in my February and March 2016 goals, I want to be more intentional in my relationship with boo and one of the ways I am doing that is making time for us to enjoy things like date night or movie night or just a good night in.

What do you think of date night outfit? What is your go to date night attire?

    I feel this is where I’m inept — putting outfits together. That and makeup, lol. Looks like you have it all together though, looks great!

    • March 18, 2016 / 7:30 pm

      Thanks so much lol I am not good with makeup

      Hahahaha thanks Jeanine

  10. March 18, 2016 / 2:11 pm

    The restaurant looks amazing, I would eat there. I think it’s important to make the most of your time together. I think I might be due a date night soon, with my husband of course

    • March 18, 2016 / 4:02 pm

      Aww thanks Zena and hope you manage to have a good date night

  11. March 18, 2016 / 12:28 pm

    My date night style is just like the one you put together. I think it is a chic and comfortable look that goes perfectly with most of our laid back dates 🙂

    • March 18, 2016 / 4:02 pm

      Thanks so much I love dressing comfortable and laid back

  12. March 18, 2016 / 6:01 am

    Love your outfit – great color choices! I am usually in sweats or yoga pants by 5 pm ! haha☺ My husband and I so rarely have a date night – just way too busy

    • March 18, 2016 / 3:54 pm

      I am in my pj’s by then time I am back from work

  13. March 18, 2016 / 3:33 am

    I absolutely love the color of those skinny jeans. I don’t think I would be able to wear them to an all-you-can-eat restaurant though. Your food photos are amazing!

    • March 18, 2016 / 3:53 pm

      Hahaha thanks Michelle

  14. March 18, 2016 / 1:39 am

    I love that outfit!! I am obsessed with stripes right now!!

    • March 18, 2016 / 3:51 pm

      I am starting to love them

  15. March 17, 2016 / 6:27 pm

    I love the patterns and colors you chose. I haven’t seen those flats before and they are super cute.

    • March 18, 2016 / 3:42 pm

    What a cute date night outfit! You have such a unique style and I love how it shows even with a simple outfit like this.

    • March 18, 2016 / 3:38 pm

      Awww thanks so much Pam I appreciate this

  17. March 17, 2016 / 5:16 pm

    Love this outfit, it is so much fun to get dressed up for date night. Your shoes are my favorite part of the outfit!

    • March 18, 2016 / 3:37 pm

      Thanks so much Vera, it’s always nice

  18. March 17, 2016 / 4:57 pm

    I LOVE that outfit you chose! I’ve been thinking of getting a jacket really similar to that one. Now that I see it styled, I might finally do it!

    • March 17, 2016 / 5:03 pm

      I am glad to hear than and thanks

  19. March 17, 2016 / 3:50 pm

    Jimmy’s Restaurant Luton looks so good! I totally understand loving your freedom! I loved it when I had a place all my own. It was great when I moved in with my husband but a part of me still missing have a space that is just mine.
    Love that military jacket!

    • March 17, 2016 / 3:54 pm

      Thanks so much, the freedom is amazing but I do want to move in with boo at some point

  20. March 17, 2016 / 2:54 pm

    Cute outfit! And my husband would LOVE to have good sushi like that. We moved to a place that doesn’t really have any good sushi restaurants and he’s pretty sad about it because its his favorite food. I need to schedule a date night for us soon, too.

    • March 17, 2016 / 3:45 pm

      Thanks so much

  21. March 17, 2016 / 9:09 am

    Love the outfit, especially the jacket. I am a big fan of this style of jacket. I am a bit of a fussy eater, but getting better with age!

    • March 17, 2016 / 9:10 am

      Thanks Laura, I should be getting better with age too but maybe when I have kids

  22. March 16, 2016 / 12:58 pm

    I really like the outfit, especially the military styled jacket. The jeans are really lovely as well.

    • March 16, 2016 / 2:30 pm

      Thanks so much

  23. March 16, 2016 / 12:10 pm

    The food looks amazing, date nights are just so important. Love those coloured jeans too,

    • March 16, 2016 / 12:26 pm

      They truly are and thanks

  24. March 15, 2016 / 11:41 pm

    Aw how long have you and your boyfriend been together. I think it is the perfect date night outfit especially the striped shirt!

    • March 16, 2016 / 5:10 am

      8yrs going on 40 lol and thanks

  25. March 15, 2016 / 11:18 pm

    Sounds like a great date night, I love an all you can eat because they always have something I like (I’m a real fussy eater!). But like you, I always have eyes bigger than my belly and I eat until I’m ready to burst.
    Love the military jacket!

    • March 16, 2016 / 5:10 am

      Hahahaha thanks Lauren, those all you can eat places mess us picky eaters up

  26. March 15, 2016 / 10:42 pm

    I love that outfit. The food looks delicious. I can’t remember the last time we had a date night but we are going to a party on Saturday which is the first time in 13 months without a baby x

    • March 16, 2016 / 5:09 am

      Awww bless I can not even imagine

  27. March 15, 2016 / 10:13 pm

    I’ve not been on a date night since probably about our 3rd wedding anniversary. We only ever go out with friends, but I live in jeans so will always be in those and a nice top and boots. I like the burgundy trousers.

    • March 16, 2016 / 5:08 am

      And I am sure you rock the jeans and cute tops with boots 😊

  28. March 15, 2016 / 9:14 pm

    Oh I don’t remember the last time me and my boyfriend had a date night!! That meal looks amazing and the dessert looks sooo delicious! Love the jacket with the outfit, I’ve been searching for a khaki green utility jacket for the summer!!

    • March 15, 2016 / 9:15 pm

      Date nights are rare these days as we are all so busy but it’s nice once in a while to just sit back and relax on a night out

  29. March 15, 2016 / 8:13 pm

    Now that is a great outfit, though I am still drooling over those desserts, I love the purple trousers x

    • March 15, 2016 / 8:56 pm

      Awww thanks so much. The desserts were delicious

  30. March 15, 2016 / 7:22 pm

    I love that jacket! Your meal looks awesome too. It must be difficult being so far apart, but I can see the appeal!

    • March 15, 2016 / 7:57 pm

      Thanks so much, yes it’s hard but it’s good too

    This is a perfect date night outfit! And I love an all you can eat restaurant too, especially when there are so many different food types!

    Musings & More

    • March 15, 2016 / 1:45 pm

      Thanks, I love different varieties of food

  32. March 15, 2016 / 12:14 pm

    Date nights are great, although I can’t remember the last date night my hubby and I had!
    I love your date night outfit 🙂

    • March 15, 2016 / 12:15 pm

      Thanks Laura, date nights are great indeed

  33. March 15, 2016 / 9:30 am

    I don’t even remember the last time my husband and I went out on a date! 😉 Love your choice of outfits, and food looked really yum. Though I’m not very good with “eat all you can” I’m usually stuffed after a few dishes, unless I eat small portions 😉 x

    • March 15, 2016 / 9:33 am

      I know what you mean, I am not big on all you can eat places because of that but then again I do love them because my options are not limited

  34. March 15, 2016 / 9:27 am

    I was totally looking for a green jacket like this and you’ve helped me solve my problem yay! I also love Ice cream ;D xx

    • March 15, 2016 / 9:28 am

      I am glad to hear that, I am a huge ice cream lover

  35. March 15, 2016 / 8:55 am

    This is a lovely outfit. Love the colour of the jeans. We hardly ever have date night unless we get a baby sitter which seems to be very rare these days

    • March 15, 2016 / 8:59 am

      Awe thanks SIL, you could always send my nephew to me for the weekends lol

  36. March 14, 2016 / 9:08 pm

    oh its been a long time since I had a date night and right now I think I need one

    • March 14, 2016 / 9:36 pm

      Awww I am sure that will be lovely

  37. March 14, 2016 / 9:05 pm

    Date nights are always good, a nice chance to get out and have a change of scenery. Love the outfit, I want to get a pair of trousers that colour x

    • March 14, 2016 / 9:35 pm

      Thanks Rhian, a change of scenery is always good and date night is just the perfect excuse for it lol
