Coffee dates are one of my favorite things. When my husband asked what I wanted to do in Nashville this coming weekend, I said ‘get coffee.’ Exploring coffee shops has become a ‘must’ for us when we travel! I love that undivided time together and the fact that coffee shops are designed for you to linger.
I also love to meet friends for coffee dates. It is an inexpensive way to spend time together + catch up – and we almost always end up running into other friends at our favorite spots in Atlanta.
I have friends that have met their husbands on coffee dates. Whether it is a blind date or a set up, coffee is an low-pressure first meeting. You can make it a quick meeting – or if it is going well, like I said – coffee shops are made for lingering. One issue that my friends always run into is ‘what to wear?’ I love an effortless look for a coffee date and a throw-on dress is perfectly fitting.
Octane Coffee in Grant Park (Atlanta) is one of my favorites! For this coffee date, I chose an olive green dolman sleeve dress, minimalist jewelry and soft + pretty makeup/hair. See the details below:
Dress: Dolman Sleeved Shift Dress
Necklace: My Christmas gift from Jonathan last year! Rose gold + diamond necklace from Jewelry Artisans
Palette for eyes, cheeks and highlighter
Hair: I use a one-inch barrel curling iron, curling away from my face. I curl into tight ringlets and let them cool while I finish getting ready. The last thing I do is brush out my curls, so they turn into soft waves.
Bag: Madewell tote
