As a parent, there is simply nothing like a date night - getting all dressed up and remembering who you are other from"Mum!"
There are so many things to love about going on a date night. It is a chance to escape everyday life and responsibilities and simply enjoy the company of your partner.
In many cases, quality time is difficult to find even when you both live in the same house. Having some kind of food or beverage handed to you is also a lovely treat.
Personally, I love any excuse to get a bit dolled up. During the week, I have a bit of a uniform and it revolves around comfort and practicality.
When date night comes around I love choosing my outfit and taking time doing my hair and make-up because it makes me feel really good. The whole experience of getting ready is a bit of me-time that is an important part of the date night ritual.
I’ve been scouting online and have come across these beautiful date night dresses for under €20!
River Island Printed Wrap Dress
This is an absolute bargain at just €18. Dress it down with flat boots and tights, wear with sandals for a daytime date or glam it up with some sparkly jewellery and killer heels. I love the colour palette – it’s flirty and fun.
Dunnes Stores Summer Dress
How convenient is it to be able to pick up an outfit while you are doing the food shop? This colourful summer dress is just €15 from Dunnes Stores. I would wear this with converse during the day or tan sandals for an evening look. The colours are beautiful.
Pretty In Pink From New Look
I couldn’t unsee this pink tie-dye beauty from New Look. It is a wrap dress and has a beautiful neckline. You could wear it casually or dress it up for evening wear.
Boohoo Shirt Dress
This stunning shirt dress comes in two colours and I think I need both. It makes for an edgy date-night look and is the kind of dress that would get tonnes of wear for other occasions too. At €18 its brilliant value!
Nasty Gal LBD
A little black dress is a staple for any woman’s wardrobe but this one is simply stunning for €14. The bodycon style is figure-hugging while the net arms make it really unique.
