Being a blogger, I get tons of questions every day, from what to wear for an interview, the first day of work, the best shapewear to wear under curve-hugging dresses, and the most frequently asked by a landslide: what to wear on a first date?!
My answer is a really simple combination that’s two things: cute and functional, no matter the time of day or the activity. For any type of date, I personally go for pieces that are stylish and put together, but most importantly fuss-free. At the end of the day, looking your best is a priority, but the top priority is FEELING your best, so ditch anything that doesn’t allow you to move freely and confidently!
An outfit like this, consisting of a cute top and jeans, is a perfect example of a great date look — it’s something anyone can pull off with little effort, and still look put together and ready for anything. I wore this look on a lunch date with Dave last week, and couldn’t resist shooting these pics in order to give you a prime example of my go-to date look. Even after almost ten years together, nothing puts the look of love in his eyes like a cute top and curve-hugging jeans!
This top is a recent Express find, and I love how it accentuates the waistline without hugging the tummy area, which is great for when you’re planning to have a hearty meal, followed by dessert (like I did!), going to a movie, on a picnic, or even bowling! While these jeans are my usual go-to skinny silhouette, they’re a mid-rise vs. my typical high-rise fave, and the cropped length shows off my ankle strap heels nicely. I also love the fun touch of leopard print patches that show through the distressed detailing, making them a bit more casual and cool than a standard distressed skinny jean.
So for anyone looking for the perfect date look, I hope this outfit serves as inspiration. After all, answering your most burning questions, is what I enjoy doing most!
