MUSEUM DATE NIGHT

A couple of months back Dustin and I bought a membership to the High Museum because we wanted to get in the habit of doing more diverse outings around town. You know, instead of just hitting up parties and dinners, but real talk…who doesn’t love those!?

On Friday we didn’t have plans and thought it was the perfect time to finally use our membership and hit up our friends-Cristi and Derek-way last minute and they were also into going.  We love us some double dates!

Originally we wanted to see several of the exhibits inside but after arriving we quickly got distracted by the performance happening around the Sifly Piassa (ps it’s free and open the public so you could make a night of just hanging around there)

The distraction was the vibrant Los Trompos exhibit by contemporary Mexican designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena.  It’s the High’s second large-scale interactive outdoor exhibit and definitely my favorite!  The colorfully woven hut-like creations were so fun and everyone from small children to sweet older couples were enjoying them, including us! Dustin spun me around a few times as I held on to the exterior for dear life (seriously, my guy is strong!)

We happened to go on a night when local sound and composer artist, Ben Coleman, was performing his reaction to the exhibit called “Zoetrope.”  It created a “playground for happy eyes and ears”  (via High.org) and made us feel like well-dressed kids playing in public! Pictured here are the “tame moments” haha, hope you like Dustin’s creative vision of tonights outfit post!

Side note: this Billabong coverup is one of my favorite pieces in my closet! And just between us, it was way to hot to wear it, sorta dying here!

My outfit includes a Billabong kimono, Free People tank, TOMS sunglasses, Mother denim jeans, Madewell necklace and Naya sandles.

We really did have a blast. There was another area inside with live music, multiple areas you could purchase drinks (though you couldn’t bring into exhibits so that kinda sucked) and overall a really rad date night out. We concluded with hangs at The Lawrence and deviled eggs. A Friday well spent in the A-T-L for sure!

And lastly, I’ll leave you with a gif of Dustin having fun spinning with his cocktail by the talented Sarah “Slaw” Lawrence!
