date night


I have a confession. While I would love to admit the man friend and I have regular date nights out, it's actually pretty tricky for us to pull off. Between both of our work schedules, long commutes and now a puppy (wow, my first world problems), I'm pretty happy just to plan a quiet evening in, making dinner together. But when it does happen? Well, I'd be lying if I didn't admit I love the idea of pulling together a few new flirty separates, throwing on a bright lip and hitting the town. I mean, who doesn't?

I recently partnered with bebe (the mecca for flirty date night dresses) to showcase my date night style. Now, admittedly, I'm not usually one for body con silhouettes, much to my boyfriend's dismay, but I do love how this crop top and pencil skirt combo feels very me. The black and white pairing, the long sleeves and the sliver of skin, in my opinion, are all a nice balance of my personal style with a dash of sex appeal. Let's just say, the man friend approved. And so did I. Win, win.





As for my ideal date night? Last weekend actually sets the bar pretty high, so I'm glad my dear friend Lydia was available to help us capture it. Being the miracle workers that they are, my guys' parents happened get us tickets for The Book of Mormon (which you probably don't need me to tell you, has been sold out for months). I'm a big Broadway show lover and always make a point to catch a performance whenever I'm in New York. My guy, on the other hand, doesn't mesh well with musicals. And he's a musician. Go figure. Luckily, when musicals involve the two creators of South Park, he's on board. 



Before heading to the theatre, we popped over to Maiden Lane at Union Square for dinner and drinks. Living in such a foodie town has definitely spoiled us and when we get the chance to head out for dinner, I love researching new restaurants for us to try out (State Bird, I'm looking at you!).



On him: Suit: Zara (similar here and here); Shirt: H&M // On her: Top and skirt: Bebe (here and here); Bag: Chanel; Shoes: Valentino; Sunglasses: Celine; Necklace: Gorjana; Lips: Stila "Beso"

And as for the cable cars? Something I'm trying to embrace this year is acting more like a tourist in my own town, especially on our date nights together. It's fun rediscovering your own city and even more so with someone you love.

I'm curious -- what's your ideal date night? Any fun traditions?

  19. Holy adorableness! My hubs is at the WH by day and musician by night, so I completely understand not being able to schedule date night and having a musician who doesn't like musicals (still so odd to me). HA!

    You planning on being at NYFW this season?

  31. Date night varies from a good dinner downtown, to a few hours at the rock climbing gym! I also love visiting the touristy places in NYC sometimes.

  33. This is such a cute post and you look amazing in your date night outfit! But I think it's tough to make date night a priority after dating for a long time. Maybe it's time to make some traditions...

  35. great post krystal - I love when a sponsored post appears to mesh so seamlessly with your own style/lifestyle - you look incredible and I love hearing about your ideal date night :)
    date night is often a night in for us but, on the occasion we go out (sans puppy), trying out new restaurants is a must - all about the fooooood!
