This summer, Harlowe and I started a new tradition that I’m a huge fan of: monthly mommy/daughter date nights! I’m not sure who loves them more me or …well, probably me. She gets to choose what we do which has ranged from going to the movies to getting patriotic mani/pedis. Regardless of what’s on deck, she likes to get all dressed up. I think she sees KW and I get ready for date night and she wants to do that too. I’m looking forward to the next one and have so many ideas in my back pocket in case she needs some inspiration. Here’s what I’ve been thinking about:
- Trip to any museum. The Getty and The Ice Cream Museum in LA are at the top of my list right now.
- High tea
- Beach picnic or park picnic if it’s too crowded at the beach
- Easy hike
- Mermaid school
Do you have any ideas on what we can do next? For our last date, I wore this dress (on sale now!) from Lauren Ralph Lauren. It is out of my comfort zone in that it is more modern and sophisticated than the casual pieces I’ve gravitated towards after leaving my job at Google earlier this year. As soon as I saw it, I couldn’t resist the bell sleeves; they make quite a statement with the laser cut detail. So beautiful! It was super comfortable with a pair of flat espadrilles (also on sale!) and will become a summer staple for date nights with the husband too.
KW shoots all of my photos so the kids are usually with us and Gunnar really wanted to sneak in for a picture too.
