Date Night Essentials

Let's talk about date night essentials! While I enjoy making special moments out of cooking together at home - vinyl spinning on the record player, wine in hand, admiring my cute husband in his apron - there is something exciting about looking forward to a night out! The essentials for my perfect date night are a dress I feel bomb in, make-up on point, & a new restaurant to explore.

When I first tried on this dress, I was concerned that it was too much - tight/revealing/whatever - but my sweet, sweet husband reminded me that while the top is a bit more exposed, it does have a longer length that gives it more class than flash. I did have to give it to him for his comments about the fit/cut, & the fabric is so stretchy & comfortable, so it was a keeper! When I purchased it, the dress was $55 - which I thought was a GREAT price, but now it is under $35, but I'm sure it will sell out soon!

2 other things on my date night essentials list? My mascara & my cocktail passport - scroll down to get more details on these specific items :)

dress: Nordstrom crochet dress (now 40% off, making it under $35 dollars!)

shoes: cognac heels (super old, linking similar below)

lipstick: Nars "Heat Wave" (my perfect Summer red shade)

Date Night Essentials:

Cocktail Passbook: shop it // Available in 8 cities - including Denver, Nashville & D.C. - this bad boy gives you 2-for-1 drinks at more than 60 hot spots (from the Denver version) & after going all the way through the Winter version, and half way through our Summer on, we haven't been to a bad place yet! I love that all the spots are local, so we are getting to check out new spots in Denver, while also enjoying beyond cheap drinks. Whether you have a Summer cocktail bar bucket list with your girlfriends, significant other, or just want to double fist cocktails all around town (no judgement) this is a GREAT buy & where all of our date nights start - where to check out next?!

LashFood: shop it // Billed as lash "extensions in a bottle", this product proves the hype! I gave up lash extensions when I moved to Denver (because no one did it as glam as my girl Shala did - Nashville ladies, hit her up!) - so I am always on a mission to amp up my lashes, & this product fits the bill. I love having the option to use the 2 step system, or just the mascara on its own. The 2 step system first applies "extending fibers", then seals them with a high quality mascara (I adore the application brush). I definitely see the difference when I use both steps, and feel that extra dose of va-va-voom!
