Day Date’n in Stillwater, MN

Have you been to Stillwater for a date day lately? Even if you’re single, it’s a great place to go with friends to take in the fun shops, beautiful river, and good food!

Our favorite places to go are: Mai Little Cakes, The Lowell Inn, Mara Mi Studio, and the old sawmill antique shop. If you’ve been there, what are your favorite spots?

Between antiquing, we sat by the river while it sprinkled and had a grand old time!

Beckett was going to surprise me with a date day to Stillwater once school was out, but he ended up telling me about it because he knows surprises stress me out. Am I the only one? lol

It ended up being the perfect day since we don’t mind the rain!

We were sad to not stop by the Lowell Inn this time, it’s where we had our wedding reception and we love it there. The food and atmosphere are incredible, but we were feeling a little casual so, instead, we opted for a more casual dinner at The Mad Capper… good food, fun decorations, very masculine.

Isn’t he cute?! We decided this could be his literary photo for when he gets a book published 🙂

After dinner we hit the antique shops just for fun. We ended up finding a very blue picture frame that caught my eye and a gorgeous mirror for our daughter’s nursery. Then we popped into Mai Little Cakes– only the best bake and bubble tea place ever!

Shoes: Sam Edelman platform espadrilles from last fall. I wear them all the time. I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again, they are some of the most comfy shoes I own. | Dress: old navy, similar casual white dress from Asos that can be worn for maternity or non | Jacket: Old by Rachel Roy. Similar white bomber by Romwe, (check sizing and consider sizing up). | Earrings: sold out from Charming Charlie, similar look, but with tassels, which means they’ll be lighter! | Handbag is LV from The Real Real. Here’s a similarly priced find from Versatile Collective.

Of course we had to sit by the water awhile too. It was a gloomy, rainy day, but we sat and took it all in anyway. What a perfect day!
