In my last post, I mentioned that I’m not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day. That’s not to say I’m not a big fan of love, hearts and my boyfriend. And Valentine’s Day seemed like the most appropriate day to post this, I love a good cliche. Last weekend, to escape the PDA crush to be expected today, me and the boyfriend were in Brighton and thought we’d go for a meal out. I added to the cliche by wearing hearts and we took some photos (with slightly dodgy light).
We headed to Indian Summer in Brighton, a restaurant I’d never even heard of. I have to confess that we’d first wanted to go to our favourite Food For Friends, but it was fully booked. If you’re ever in Brighton, I can not recommend that place enough. It’s vegetarian but even my committed meat-eating boyfriend loves it.
Anyway back to Indian Summer. It’s a gorgeous Indian (surprise surprise) restaurant, a little on the pricey side but perfect for a special occasion. The place had a really nice atmosphere and there were lots of extra touches. There was mango sorbet to cleanse your pallet and a spicy tomato soup before the starter. Both me and the boyfriend went for a Thali, which is a platter of many different things, mine was veggie and his meat. It included all sorts, a selection of mini currys, rice, naan, dips and chutney, popadoms. I’d definitely reccomend it because you get to try out a bit of everything. And there’s plenty that isn’t quite so spicy, I’m not the best with hot food!
Back to this outfit, I adore this heart patterned H&M dress. It’s perfect for work and date night. I had to layer it up with a black jumper because this February weather is not very accepting of sleeveless dresses! Then my trusty camel coat completed the line up. So often, after being in a relationship for four years especially, people don’t bother dressing up and making an effort for date night. I LOVE getting dressed up, it makes it an event. We’re aiming to make it monthly, Valentine’s Day really means nothing.
