Last weekend, my boyfriend Briar and I decided to try a place we have had our eye on for some time called The Alley. It’s a very small, intimate setting with dim lighting, twinkling lights and amazing food. We were lucky enough to be seated by a huge window and I loved being able to watch people walking their dogs (and secretly snapchatting them.)
We started off with drinks and a shrimp cocktail, which is something I have secretly always wanted to order. I don’t know why, but shrimp cocktails make me feel like I’m classy or something. For the drinks, I ordered a Wildberry Mojito and Briar decided to get the Tennessee Mule. Mine was delicious and fruity, but I think I preferred the Tennessee Mule to it. The ginger beer and Jack Daniels in it was perfect and blended tastefully.
While there, we both decided to order steaks (medium rare, of course.) I honestly wish I would have gotten mushrooms on top of mine like he did, because they were amazing and went with the steak perfectly. Briar somehow always seems to order better than I do.
For my outfit, I wore a beautiful dress from the clothing line Angie. It fits loose and has one flowy sleeve on it with a strap on the other. I’m obsessed with the paisley print on it. The colors are gorgeous and it makes me feel dressed up without being too dressy. I paired with a pair of black booties that I admittedly bought at Walmart.
Hey, don’t judge me. I wanted a pair, they were inexpensive and I have to live that cheap lifestyle sometimes.
