Dinner and a movie: It's a standard. But, truthfully, we find traditional date night...kind of overrated. All the pomp and circumstance we give to these outings — while sometimes necessary (hello, first dates) — can make them feel incredibly contrived. So, instead of overhyping, we’re ditching the fuss and embracing spontaneity this weekend. And, this includes sportier outings like mini golf and baseball games as well as daytime to-dos like brunch or artsy ones like gallery hopping.
Weekend plans still up in the air? Shoot the object of your affection a text and propose a less expected rendezvous. We admit these aren't the craziest ideas ever, but, hey, they probably aren't your go-to — and that's a good thing, in our opinion. Ahead, we crafted five back-pocket looks that won’t make you feel like a try-too-hard. Will your date be as cute as your outfit? Here’s hoping.
