I am a strong believer on dressing like yourself on a first date. That sounds tricky, let me try again: don’t try too much and less is more. Also, this advice works best if your first date is at a coffee shop and I can’t understand why you would it want it anywhere else. Why? Because is casual and you can get out whenever you feel like! Trust me, it’s important to have an escape plan. If you are going out to dinner, you might find yourself trap there while he talks god knows why and what for three house or while he is scrolling on his phone. So, coffee shop should be.
And I am talking from experience so before I give you the recipe for the best outfit for a date, let’s have a story time. I am in a relationship for almost three years, and this happened in the begging, maybe our two-month anniversary.
It was a beautiful early October day and meat in the city for coffee in a busy mall. I remember I was wearing a black shirt, leather skirt and leather heeled booties. Keep this in mind as the story goes on. We talked, had our coffee, everything fine so far. At some point, he told he has a surprise for me, and if you know me, you know I hate surprises, no matter if it’s a gift, a trip, I hate the idea of not knowing what was happening. I thought he bought me flowers or something, so I didn’t stress. We left the coffee shop and headed to his place so he can get something- don’t really remember. That was the moment I realize the surprise was not something material, and he told me he was taking me somewhere. At this point, I didn’t think anything of it, got in the car and found myself in the middle of nowhere, just outside of the city, near a small hill. Romantic right? He went off the road and started driving toward the hill. Again, romantic gesture, from the top, I bet the view was really amazing. Never really found out, because it’s not a good idea to drive through the mud right after it rains. I don’t think it lasted very long until the car got stuck in the mud and if you ever been in a situation like this, you know the more you try to pull the out, the worst in gets stuck. So, the next step was for someone to get out and push the car out of there, me beeing a good girlfriend volunteered. Remember those new leather booties? Yep, I got out of the car, right the mud got in the back of the car and realized that if starts the car, I will be covered in mud. That is a no go. So, instead, I got in the driver’s seat, got my first driving lesson, I still don’t know how to drive a car. He got in the back and start pushing, nope, it didn’t work, the car was stuck. Good think he is smart enough and the universe let a few bricks right in front of the car and he put those under the left wheel and got out of there. His car was white, so imagine the impact of that mud on it. But is all well when it ends well. And we have a story to tell. Not the only one, there are much more to come :))
Now, let’s talk fashion.
I picked a cigarette skirt, pretty long, with a slit on the back, a fitted top, and a jeans jacket. The booties are making the outfit more casual and down to earth.
Tell me down below the funnies experience you have ever had on date.
