  1. Love the dress, love the restaurant, and love the herbs on the outside terrace! Reminds me of a similar outing there long ago with you, your aunt, and cousin. We’re doing a Dubuque weekend in the not-too-distant future and eating outside at that restaurant is on the list!

    • It’s great that you’re adding it to your list. It’s such a nice place to go. Thanks for the comment!

    • This dress is absolutely beautiful on you! And even sweeter that your husband bought it for you! ? I love this! TJMaxx always has the best finds โ€” itโ€™s one of my very favorite stores!

  2. That is such a fun date night idea, and he picked out such a gorgeous outfit. I love simplicity in the summer, and it looks like an outfit made for an Italian vacation!

  3. Your husband has good taste – and definitely knows your style well! I adore this longer, chic dress on you so much – definitely something I would wear as well. And your hair looks lovely pulled back for this outfit. I think the entire ensemble is perfect for a date night out! I haven’t gotten dressed up for date night with my husband in ages!

  4. Hahaha I’m dying over your comment about the crumb! That being said, this is such a beautiful blog post. What a great idea too! I was talking to my Fiance about this idea where we go thrift shopping and choose each other’s outfits for a date night later that day. We’d set a budget, but the twist is we can get as ridiculous as possible with it! You’re totally inspiring me to just do it. Great blog post, Carolyn!
