I love transitioning an article of clothing from day to evening. By changing the styling you have a completely different outfit and it's a fun way to be inspired from your existing wardrobe. I remixed this army green jacket and wore it with black pants and a slouchy hat for an Ef Magazine editorial meeting and later with a LBD and statement necklace for date night.
My man and I have been dating almost two years, and have lived together for almost a year and a half (we didn't waste any time!) And by living together I mean cramming into his one bedroom condo with my two furry babies, 53 dresses and extensive shoe collection. Friends have commented that if they lived in such tight quarters with their man, they would break up in no time at all. So how do we deal with lack of personal space? Date nights. We plan (ok I plan, he brings his wallet) at least one fun activity a week that gets us out of the condo. The date is usually something creative accompanied by a meal so we can chat and catch up. (Because if you live with your partner you know how easy it is to become passing ships in the night!) Last week we went out for a yummy sushi dinner followed by amateur comedy night (this is what I wore) and over the weekend we attended poetry reading (something that's been on my to-do list for ages). I look forward to our date nights all week and love coming up with unique, budget friendly activities that give us quality time together. It rejuvenates our romance and keeps me from running him over with the vacuum (don't ask-it stems from an irrational childhood fear of vacuums -thanks Mum!)

Other date night activites have included (from L-R) Indian food followed by theatre, Greek tapas, Southwestern dinner and drinks, support local businesses networking event (because the couple that networks together, stays together!)
