One of our resolutions this year is to have more date-nights. We have been epically failing (only going on about 4 total in the almost 2 years of Archer’s life) and it has taken its toll from time to time. Before Archie we were positive we would be one of the couples to take regular nights out together and make our relationship a priority but unfortunately it hasn’t been the case.
Neither of us are planners, we like to be spontaneous and nights out, pre-baby, were a big part of our week. However, with a child at home it isn’t as easy as saying, hey let’s go out to eat tonight and catch a movie. You have to find a sitter and those sitters like to have more than an hours notice. Go figure. With that said, this year our plan is to have a standing date night where we have scheduled a sitter to come one evening, every other week, so we have the plan in place and then we can be somewhat spontaneous with the what and the where.
On our first night out, we went downtown, visited the Broad and then got dinner at Redbird. It was nice to mix up the routine, get out of the house together, and take in some of the beautiful things Los Angeles has to offer. Redbird has to be one of my favorite interiors (take a peek here). Wish us luck to keep this on the regular!
The sheer lace top from Zara couldn’t be better for a date night. A faux fur coat and black distressed denim with a simple black pump make sure the top is the star of the outfit and I layered on all my favorite rings to make myself feel a little fancy.
