Dinner and a Movie

The always classic “dinner and a movie” date is a forever favorite even in the summer. With so many amazing dinner spots to choose from and ways to watch a movie, the possibilities are endless to reinvent this tried-and-true date night idea. Whether you’re dining outside under twinkling string lights, by candlelight in a cozy corner, or grabbing something quick and casual, the silk Charlotte Camisole or Celine Open Back Cami from Journelle both make great date night tops. The versatility and ease of a camisole makes it perfect for layering under a jacket or sweater – movie theaters can get cold! However, it’s still sexy and skin-baring enough to make a statement without looking like you tried too hard.

Picnic in the Park

Is there anything more adorable and charming than a picnic? Curate your picnic basket the same way you curate your lingerie collection with only the best and all your favorites in one place. Grab a bottle of wine, some cheese, fresh fruit – you know the drill. Lay it all out on a big, soft blanket and bring a portable speaker if you have one. The best thing about this date is that it’s good for either daytime or evening! Get in the foodie mood with Le Petit Trou Pomme Corset and matching Briefs with Frills. We also love the Frambroise U-Shaped Underwire Bra and Frambroise Brief. Packing strawberries in your basket? The Fraise Soft Bra and Fraise Heart Briefs are there to match. We love a picnic chic moment in the summertime! If prints and embroidery aren’t your thing, try the best-selling Romy Demi Bra or Scoop Bralette from Journelle, each available in an assortment of mood-setting shades.

Rooftop Sunset and Drinks

Catch a summer sunset while you sip cocktails. You can’t go wrong with a rooftop bar. The view alone is sure to set the mood! A date this sexy and seductive deserves an equally sensual style. Try a bold backless bodysuit for this date, like the best-selling Natalia Bodysuit from Journelle. We also love its daring plunge neckline. Maybe you prefer to keep it classic with a little black bodysuit instead. The choice is yours with the Free People Intimately FP Lace Night Rhythm Bodysuit or the Atelier Amour Mystic Shadow Bodysuit.

Romantic Stroll with Ice Cream

No man can resist a woman in a silk slip dress licking an ice cream cone – trust us. That’s why we think the Charlotte Short Slip from Journelle is perfect for this simple, sweet, and summery date idea. There’s nothing better than a fresh scoop of your favorite flavor and a leisurely summer stroll with good conversation. Take in the scenery and get to know your date over some ice cream.

Netflix and Chill

Perhaps you’ve reached the point in dating where staying in feels more exciting, or maybe you’re ready to let your guard down. Stay in for your next summer date night and create a romantic set-up at home. Put on a good movie or some music, open a bottle of wine, order some takeout, and get comfortable. Don’t worry – we picked the perfect outfit to wear that’s still sexy but laidback. You can still look put together when lounging at home in the Journelle Sophia Pajama Set or Free People Intimately FP Have to Have It Short Lounge Set. If you’re more of a cotton girl, try the Lilly Boxy Crop Short Sleeve & Wide Leg Pant or Shorts from Journelle. Now that we figured out the hard part for you, all that’s left to ask is “your place or mine?” 

Take this as your sign to pencil in your next date night and do some online shopping before summer’s over!
