Well ladies, I don't know about you but I don't think there's anything more romantic than spending the night cuddled up next to someone by the fire. The summer nights tend to cool down on the coast so bonfire's on the beach or in someone's backyard are a pretty regular thing. They're also the perfect setting for a date night with someone new. Bonfire's usually mean a gathering of a few people so you and your date can get to know each other without putting the pressure on, but sitting around a fire roasting marshmallows can also be intimate. It's one of my favorite ways to get to know someone or to catch up with my old friends.
For my bonfire look above I kept it casual but pretty. Denim shorts and a loose fitting, off the shoulder sweater are comfortable but sexy at the same time. Keep your jewelry low key and your shoes low to the ground (you can probably get away with wedges if you're not going to be on the beach, but you still want to be comfortable). Leave your hair loose and wavy (NO HAIRSPRAY - you're spending the night near an open flame) and your makeup simple. Remember your best accessory, especially when meeting someone new - your smile!
