Lovely in Lilac
Hello beautiful ladies I hope you all are having a fantastic start to your week! I recently had some friends come up to visit. It's so nice catching up and having 'girl talk'. As we were talking we got into the conversation of dating and how confusing and sometimes stressful it can be. Especially, when it's in the premature stages of going out and meeting someone for the first time.
I had someone inbox me and ask "what should I wear on my first date?" I love answering questions, especially ones that allow me to fully dive and hopefully help more women out that are thinking the same thing.
First dates are already weird because you're completely putting yourself out there to someone you don't know. Think about it, you can only know a bit about a person by talking through text, or listening to their voice on the phone. The next step is taking that leap of faith to meet them. You have so many questions run through your head: Do they look the same as the pictures, will they like me, or I wonder if he's nice? All those questions and more can get you down and make meeting for the first time that much more nerve wrecking. The last thing you want to worry about is what you are going to wear. Therefore, I've come up with three outfits that would be my go to if I was going out for a first date. Keep in mind, you can spice these outfits up to make them your own, but this can hopefully give you some ideas on where to start.
My first outfit of choice is this lovely lilac colored romper that is from QUAINT. Rompers are always my go to because they are sexy and feminine only showing off a bit leaving the rest to the imagination. Lilac is, in my opinion, best for all different types of skin tones. It's so flattering and is just that right amount of color that one needs to make them shine. For shorter people, like mwah, this romper fits perfectly allowing me to show off a bit of my leg thus making me look a bit taller. I am wearing a size xsmall and it fits perfectly, not too tight, not too loose. The best thing about rompers is no matter what size you are you can shine in this! Show off your beautiful curves and feel confident while doing so! This print is also one of my favorites and the off the shoulder look is something that gives such a lovely element of romance.
I couldn't find the actual romper online but here is the website, check it out, they have some wonderful pieces listed!
Lady in Red
We are at that awkward time of the year where summer is ending and fall is slowly starting to creep up! Sometimes, it's hard to know how to dress for this insane weather that Chicago is having, let alone, for a first date. Yet, you can never go wrong with a lovely red dress. There is something about the color maroon, it dotes the mood of passion, mystery, and overall seduction. This beautiful satin dress will be perfect for a nice date night going out for drinks at a bar, to a nice restaurant, or if you're doing a walk by the lake. I love this color because not only is it perfect on every skin tone, especially with a matching lip, but it's also bridging the gap and getting us ready for fall. I love these black booties paired with this outfit and the same colored choker. Wrap dresses are great because it slims the waist making everyone feel comfortable, sleek, and extremely sexy.
I found a similar dress and the best part is it's only 19.99! Link below!

Strutting Your Stuff
Third, but definitely not least is this wonderful pants piece. It's put together if you're doing something a bit more active. Let's say your date wants to take you out for a stroll through the park, or walking through Navy Pier. This is great because this beautiful mustard colored pants are not only striking but comfortable as well. This mid-rise design can give anyone a flattering silhouette. The best part is you can make it as dressy or as casual as you want. Like the photo, you can add some lovely heels to the mix and make it a bit more spicy, or you can dress it down, by simply wearing sandals. The white shirt is perfect, showing off a lovely amount of skin and bringing the outfit out all together. I would where this any-day and I think it's important to keep a bit of yourself within your fashion because you never want to sway too far from what makes you you.

The most important information of all is left for last. Always remember to do what makes you feel comfortable! These are purely examples, something to make you think, or lead you down the right path. I know that first dates can be odd and a lot of times it throws you out of your comfort zone. Remember, that no matter what you wear, how you act, or how nervous you are that YOU are beautiful. Being comfortable in yourself, and confident in who you are is the best thing you could ever do.
I hope you all enjoyed these quick tips and hopefully if you are getting ready for that first date you'll rock it!
Until next time.
