Perfect First Date Outfits

So you meet this guy, he’s tall, handsome and has the prettiest teeth you ever seen! You exchange numbers with him and after a couple days of chatting it up, he asks you out on your first date!

Depending on the guy, your first date can be a variety of things, going to the bar, movies, or having a romantic picnic on the beach. Whatever the event may be, it’s essential to dress appropriately.

Sometimes, as young ladies, we try to do something out of the ordinary and end up confusing the guy because we get caught up in pretending to be something we are not. He’s obviously already attracted to you, so it’s no need to wear the extra make up, the super short dress, or the tight fitting blouse. 

Be you, yes you want to look sexy and show him that you are a good catch, but you can do so by leaving a lot to the imagination! We want to leave him with the impression that you guys are both in this for the long run and not for a one night stand!

I have three outfits for three different date nights that will definitely leave him thanking God he was brave enough to ask you for your number the night you met him!

Movie Night 
Movie dates are very typical and if you are a pretty shy person, I think these are the perfect first dates because you aren’t in each other’s faces the whole time, and it allows you to do only a little bit of talking (unless one of you are very talkative during the movie, like myself). Usually after movie dates, you can go and get dessert and reflect on whether the movie you all seen was either good or bad.

Black and White is always a “GO TO” for me because yo can dress it up and down. Pairing a pair of white jeans with a black and white sleeveless button down blouse is perfect because if you go to the movies in the day time, you can pair it with flats and if you go at night, you can pair it with a nice pair of sexy heels that give you a more sophisticated look!
Tip: if you want to add a pop of color to your black and white ensemble, pair your fit with some red loafers, they will go great!

Bar and Club Date
If you guys are a little more spontaneous and are DEFINITELY into each other, going to the bar is a great idea! I say DEFINITELY into each other, because  there are many distractions that can interfere with you all having a good time together there.
I would go for something sexy, but not “I WANT A MAN” sexy but more like “I ALREADY HAVE A MAN” sexy lol! Also be cautious, do not drink too much, you want him to like you for you, not the drunk, I dance on tables with my girlfriends you, be a respectful young lady because I will give my last dollar that he will notice any little changes you make as you drink. I would limit myself to one or two girly drinks to maintain complete composure.
I would go for a body con dress that’s not too short, longer length dresses are IN right now and its perfect to show the man you are with that you can be sexy as well as classy! I would pair the bodycon dress with the, also in now, pair of heeled sandals. If you don’t want to stand out to much, I would go for a black color, but if you want to use it as a statement piece, I would go for a brighter color!

Picnic at the Beach
Now that its getting hotter there will be many trips to the beach with your new honey. If he’s super romantic, he’ll set up a nice little picnic one afternoon at the beach. This is the time you go for a more relaxed look, you don’t want to be the girls with HEELS on in the sand, you will just look like you tried too hard. A super cute maxi dress or a tank with a pair of distressed shorts would go perfect for the occasion, depending on the time of your picnic!

Same girl, 3 Different Looks!

Im back!!! Yes, school is finally over and I now have only ONE more semester left until I graduate! I seriously cannot wait! I honestly had one of the hardest semesters of my whole college career but I am so glad that it is over and done with, so I can focus more on my blog!
I missed you all and I hope you missed me too! I have a lot of exciting new things planned including a GIVEAWAY this summer!  You ladies have been showing me love for over a year now and I want to show how appreciative I really am towards each and every one of you all.

I came back to show you how its only May 9th and I am killing the fashion game. I will show you three different looks from three prior engagements with details on where you can get each item!

First up, I went to a Norfolk State University graduation party at Club Palace! NSU is one of HU’s rivals, but a lot of my friends from back home attend there, so I had to go out and SHOW OUT!  I had a blast at this party, it’s a beautiful thing to see YOUNG BLACK PEOPLE GRADUATING, and it was an amazing experience!

 The dress is from Olive Ole, the shoes are from Barefeet Shoes and the necklace is from Forever21. 

The second look, I went to a bar with my sister and best friend. I am kind of mad I wasted this outfit. Baxter’s (the bar) is always a hit and miss and that night it was a miss. I ended up leaving early!

 Peplum top is from Olive Ole, Faux leather pants Target, Open toe wedges Olive Ole. Glasses from Icings.

The third look is from me going Paintballing for the first time! This was a very exhilaration experience but it did indeed hurt like hell! I still wanted to look fashionable while I also made show I dressed in layers. I had two pair of tights under my pants and I had 2 tank tops and a sports bra under my sweatshirt! I came for war, my operator at work took us on this trip for free and everyone had one person who they all wanted to get, it was pretty funny! Definitely willing to go again!
Army Fatigue Pants from Goodwill, Sweater was gifted, and Nike shoes from finishline. 

I plan on giving you more fashion looks on this blog because I’m ready to live it up this summer. I’m planning a couple trips (in my head) hopefully to Atlanta or Miami, and definitely DC!

See you all later!
