First Date Outfit

A year ago today I went on my first date with my Jon and everything changed in my life for the better.

First dates can always be a little nerve wrecking: what should I wear, is the date going to be a total bomb, etc... All of these things went through my mind as I was figuring out what I should wear for my date with Jon.

Since I had met him online I really didn't know if I was going to be seeing the same person I had been talking to for two weeks before we set up the date. Of course I have seen all the Lifetime movies and watch far too much TV; so the thought had crossed my mind that what if Jon was in fact a 60 year old balding man instead of the handsome Thor look alike that I thought him to be.

All my fears were put to rest when I saw him walking towards me. He was in fact the Thor look alike that I thought him to be and even better looking than I had imagined! It was the best first date I have ever had and led into the happiest time of my life (which I am still in). I cant wait to have countless more years with him!

So enough with the mushy stuff and back to how to dress for a first date!

So going through your closet and trying on everything you have it can be a bit stressful! So what I finally decided on was an outfit that was comfortable but showed a bit of my personality as well. I figured that if things progressed after the first date and he got hooked when I looked casual, then when I really dressed up he would get knocked off his feet.

top: Banana Republic (similar style); shorts: BCBG (similar style); flats: Zara (similar style)

So I wore a flowy shirt (one of my favorite types of tops to wear) and some nice jean shorts with some cute flats. A casual but chic style that hinted at my personality but didn't scream it; and I could be myself.

If you feel comfortable in your outfit, then you feel more like yourself and then the guy can fall in love with the real you!

Good Luck to anyone heading out to a first date!
Happy Memorial Day everyone!
