Date Night

Recently my hubby and I had a date night. We had zero plan of where we were going to go or where we were going to eat when we left the house. Which typically, would have been a huge stressor for my Type-A, love-to-plan personality. The night turned out incredible, which clearly means I need to keep learning to go with the flow more often.

Before dinner, I wanted to swing by a mural that I saw on a garage door on Columbia Blvd. on our way to our Bridgetown Community Wednesday night. The mural is on the Aquila Glass School and after the driveway that made my hubby super nervous with our low-profile tires (never again…they came with the car) we were able to get some great shots!

Every time we walk Alberta Street I make mental notes of places I’d like to try sometime. I’d remembered walking by Enzo’s Caffe Italiano on Alberta Street and suggested that maybe we go there. Peter was up for a fun adventure and quickly agreed.

I’m always on the hunt to find Italian food that tastes as good as the food I had in Florence and Sienna. Enzo’s was one of the first places I’ve been in Portland that truly brought me back to the flavors of my Italy trip in 2014. Now I’m dreaming of the day my hubby and I take a trek to Italy together.

On a fashion note, the most important tip I have with a leather jacket is to get it tailored. I waited nearly a year to tailor this Ann Taylor jacket and it was a year too long. I would have worn the jacket a lot more often sooner had it fit better. Now, I wear it weekly because it fits great and I feel great sexy in it.

Italy is famous for leather. Wearing my faux leather jacket and black booties makes me feel a bit like I’ve transported back to the streets of Florence. I also feel sexy and confident in this outfit.

When you go on a date wear an outfit that makes you feel beautiful,  you’ll radiate beauty because of it.
