Our first date included Ian picking me up from a frozen lake, where I was ice skating in 40 below temperatures, and taking me to his parents' house to play Lego and drink beer.
No joke, that was our first official date. And to be honest, it was actually pretty solid. His dad made us a cheese platter and when we finished our Lego creations, which we built while sprawled out on the basement floor, we brought them upstairs to show off to the 'rents. How romantic! Oh yeah, I guess I should mention that this happened a year and a half ago and not when we were eight, but then again the beer should give that away. So the moral of the story is, Lego dates make for long lasting relationships. Try it out for yourself.
Anyway, without further adieu, this is what I would wear on a first date, or any date for that matter.
From top to bottom:
Earrings: Saout (Etsy)
Dress: Pink Martini (Bombshell in Jasper, AB)
Tights: Value Village Halloween collection
(VV is seriously the best place to get colourful tights on the cheap. I highly recommend it!)
Shoes: $10 from Ardene
Tips for dressing for a first date:
- Wear something you're comfortable in. You don't want to be adjusting your outfit all night because then you'll feel self conscious, which will make you sweaty and nervous (or is that just me?).
- Wear something that shows your personality.
- Don't overdo it with the makeup, unless your first date is on Halloween or you're going to a masquerade party or something like that. Natural is always better. I try to keep my makeup to a minimum. I'm a foundation, blush and mascara kind of girl.
- Find out what you're doing in advance so you can dress for the occasion. You don't want to show up in a fancy dress, only to find out you're going to a petting zoo.
