Date Night Outfits + Unique Date Ideas That Won't Break the Bank

It’s the most romantic time of year, right? If you’re on the hunt for some extra date night ideas that are affordable and out of the box- this post is for you! A night (or day) out with my husband is one of my favorite things in the world, and we are always on the hunt for new ideas to keep things fresh and exciting!

Here’s a few fun ideas for you, and of course, the perfect outfit for each date! :)

  1. Go to a Fancy Theatre Performance

I don’t mean the movie theater obviously- haha!- I’m talking about a live theatre performance. I LOVE going to musicals, and when Cody is in the right mood, he will indulge me. It’s more of a unique experience than just going to a movie, and my favorite part is that you can dress up much more for these! :) This little pink dress is just perfect for a fancy date or as a wedding guest option. It runs VERY small- I sized up two sizes for reference!


2. Go Out Just for Drinks or Dessert

This is one of our favorite date night options because let’s face it- a nice dinner out can be super expensive. Especially if you want to order a drinks, appetizers, dessert, etc. Have an early dinner at home then go somewhere intimate for drinks and/or share a dessert. This sassy look would be my outfit of choice for a drink with my hubs. Do we all just die over these hot pink heels?! Major heart eyes!


3. Check Out Some Local Art

As an artist’s wife, this one comes pretty naturally to us, but it’s always something different that I enjoy. If you’re local to Oklahoma City, the 21C Hotel Museum is really fun plus you could pop over to the Jones Assembly for a drink after! If you’re REALLY in for something super unique, look up immersive art experiences in your city. I promise you’ll never see anything else like it! Haha! Every time we go art gazing, I feel inspired to step out of my fashion comfort zone just the tiiiniest bit so this outfit seemed appropriate for this date! :)


4. Find Some Live Music

This can either be buying actual tickets to a band you like or something more spontaneous like just going to one of your favorite dives that typically have live music. I find this to sometimes be more romantic/intimate than just dinner- bonus points if there is also some dancing involved! :) This top is open-backed and is so pretty on!


5. Hit the Arcade or Skating Rink

I saved my personal favorite for last. We legitimately do both of these things pretty regularly, and it makes us soo happy! We’re basically just big kids. Haha. But there are some for real perks of doing this outside of just rekindling some childlike whimsy- like the fact that NO ONE else is ever doing it so you can basically have free reign of the place in the evenings. ;) This sweater is my most casual option and will definitely get the most wear time out of all of the outfits! It’s super comfy and fits true to size.

Hope you all feel inspired to plan some fun date nights with your person! You can check out the video below for more date night outfit inspiration!
