Outfit Post: Enjoyed Not Endured

Fringe Outfit Post, Fringe Boots, Fringe Bag

I read something recently that really struck a chord – “Life should be enjoyed not endured.” – and I really think I’ve been doing the latter. On the whole I really try to enjoy life, I try to get excited over the little things and believe everything is going to work out, but on a daily basis I have been subconsciously whiling away the hours feeling sad and fed up and wishing for each day to be over.

Boyfriend and I work really hard and it’s not often we take time off to just have a little fun. A couple of weeks ago we headed out for an impromptu date night, to have a couple of drinks and a nice meal for the bank holiday. We popped into the new Turk’s Head by Whitelocks for a drink and snuggled up in the courtyard under the toasty heat lamps. I love the rustic style of Turk’s Head Yard and the eery apothecary feel of the bar inside.

After Turk’s Head we headed up to The Social and North Bar, a pair of our Leeds drinking staples, before making our way down to Akbars for our favourite curry. By the time we got down to the bottom of Eastgate it was raining quite heavily and hoards of people were queuing out of the door of Akbars. Not fancying getting soaked we googled the Indian across the road and TripAdvisor deemed it appropriate to we climbed the stairs to a space above the retain units next to the new shopping centre that is still being built. Kerala is a South Indian restaurant with a nice twist on your typical British curries. I had a paneer roast, punched with incredible spices and taste and best of all Kerala serve fresh puri bread – my favourite!

I wore this tunic from Next, dressed up with some opaque black tights and heels, as super comfy dress. The fitting is quite long so it makes the perfect mini dress for me as I feel it would be too long with jeans.

The whole night wasn’t that expensive and we had some great talks about future projects we could work on, feeling inspired in different surroundings with a more relaxed atmosphere. I need more impromptu date nights in my life and I’m going to book a holiday in the next few days. Do the things you love, you never know when it might be too late.

    Well you look pretty fabulous in this post! My bf and I sometimes get so caught up in work and house crap that we take impromptu date nights too. Much needed relaxation and it’s nice to just be with each other and have a conversation without thinking of the millions of things that need to be done.
