My absolutely favourite date is going for ice cream. Whether it’s with my friends or with Chris, I will never turn down a double (triple?) cone. This city has killer ice cream shops that are open are year round because nothing will stop Calgarians from eating ice cream in minus 30 weather. I’m obsessed with Made by Marcus right now – they’re combinations of flavours + roasted marshmallows are to die for. They’re right down on 17th Ave – the perfect after-dinner dessert spot.
While you’re headed for ice cream, you can pop next door to Blondie Boutique and pick up these amazing DL1961 white jeans. I love the distressed knees to break up the white and they look sharp with white Chucks – they made my shoes look extra dirty, I need to pick up a fresh pair. I have paired the white jeans with a baseball jersey from Cousin of Death. They are a local brand here in Calgary showcasing unique street style and I love their skull hand logo of course.
This outfit is my go-to for casual dates; it’s comfy but still looks chic and put together, unlike my usual Lulus and t-shirt combo. What I love about the white jeans is they aren’t see-through which is really hard to find. As long as I don’t drip ice cream on them, it’s a good day.
