Date Night Kimono

What do you do for date night? We usually keep it low-key (I'm trying to become regulars at nearby Park Tavern or Texa-Tonka—#class), but sometimes you gotta get in a dress and go out for truffle fries and fancy wine. A kimono is kind of stretch for me (or, more boho than I'd typically go), but it's one of my current favorite ways to give an LBD a fresh look when I do dress up a little. I'm obsessed with the luxurious drape and goddess-like feel—and I love it just as much with a simple black cami and high-rise denim. I packed this when I went to Door County last month and wore it with cutoff shorts and a t-shirt while we sat around eating cheese, so it definitely dresses down! 

This week is going pretty fast so far, although it's been busy! Monday night, Chris and I met his sister for a play at the Swandive Theatre. She had to see it for a class and invited us to go along. Chris and I agreed we're not really "theatre people" (the passion and earnestness in the actors' voices just annoys me and I start getting RLS by act two), but it was fun to stop through Seven Corners, a charming part of Minneapolis I don't go to often. Tuesday, I woke up early to get going on some work deadlines. It's so much easier for me to be productive from home—with my coffee pot mere inches away—when I'm feeling the pressure. Then I had a meeting at Barrio for a volunteer committee after work while Chris watched the Twins/Yankees wild card game with friends—I'm excited to have him to myself tomorrow! Maybe we'll go to Texa-Tonka. ;)
