Monday (Date) Night: June 6th, 2011

Event: Downtown Dining @ Ryan Braun’s Graffito, walk along the river

Outfit: Purple dress: ProMod (Verona, 2007); Sandals: Target; Necklaces: Assembled by Anna, gift

On Monday, a scorcher of a day, we decided to combine Downtown Dining/date night/puppy time into a lovely evening. Adam made reservations at Ryan Braun’s Graffito, and we were able to relax river-side with Arwen in tow. It’s a “from-scratch” Italian dining experience, so this purple dress—purchased during my time in Verona—was a good fit. Sometimes I can’t help but belt it, sometimes I embrace is flowiness. It’s an easy summer dress, and the criss-crossed back keeps things interesante.

It was certainly a hot, humid night—but a beer and the breeze off the water kept things enjoyable. Arwen was pretty overheated after our walk along the river, but at least she got a nice workout (and plenty of water at dinner). It feels so luxurious to go from a busy work-day to a romantic evening. I am absolutely a fan. It obviously makes the next morning even more confusing (WAIT. I’M SERIOUSLY SUPPOSED TO GO TO WORK TODAY?), but what a small price to pay.

By the way, 1.5 MORE DAYS OF WORK. Not that I’m counting down or anything…

P.S. Interview at Anthropologie tomorrow for a summer job! We’ll see how it goes, but it would be very exciting if it works out! And, AHHHH, to walk to work. HEAVEN.

Purple dress previously.
