I was really happy to go simple with this almost sheer dress. It’s from an Australian label called Transit, randomly found it at Century 21 while I was visiting home last week. As I’ve blogged about before, sometimes it really is about the dress and you can let it do most of the work. It’s also usually the case that your date prefers a naturally pretty look for date night: no fuss. I kept my make up very neutral and strayed away from my usual bold lip. To be honest my boots were the first pairs of shoes I found, and I thought they rounded out the earthy feel. I’m always about adding color of course, so while slight, the necklace was just right. A las, meet Jordan Parker, the great talent behind Idiosyncracie’s lovely photographs! Who also happens to be my boyfriend He snaps, I edit and write. Very thankful that he enjoys being part of the team, as I it would be very difficult to work without a photographer.
We thought we’d make a date night out of the shoot, so we decided to hit up The Farmhouse. I had heard great things, and it’s unusual I come across farm-to-table restaurants I don’t like. This was not an exception. The food was delicious! Jordan…typically hostile towards unknown vegetables or vegetables in general (unless I mask them) ate his whole bed of collard greens and cauliflower pureé along with his goat cheese stuffed chicken, particularly experimental for his taste. I had the bouillabaisse, which is a kind of fish stew with seemingly every critter under the sea floating around. The presentation was wonderful and it tasted even better. If you haven’t been there, make a point to!
