3 Summer Date Ideas And What To Wear To Each!

There's something about warm weather that makes you want to find that special someone to share it with. After all, fireworks are best watched with someone's arm around you, right? So, to liven up your dating life, we've put together a quick-hit trio of couple-friendly outings and outfits to match. Whether it's your first time meeting, or you know his face by heart, these ideas and looks are worth falling in love with.
Take An Outdoor Photography Class
Get to know your new date (or an old one!) by learning something together. Outdoor Rise provides a ton of interesting, non-competitive classes so you can hone your skills whilst honing in on one another. For this, we suggest a twist on a T-shirt and shorts that could go straight to an outdoor lunch or dinner afterwards. Best part? There's even a class as early as tonight!
Outdoor Rise Photo Classes, times and locations vary.

Drink On The Met Rooftop
A sunset becomes even more memorable when you're surrounded by a work of art. Cheers to the day that has finished or a great night ahead from the top of your favorite museum, surrounded by a rare installation. Keep it flirty yet casual in a comfortable (but still feminine) sandal and breezy dress that'll pop against the sky as night falls.
