* BTW – THIS POST CONTAINS A GIVEAWAY AT THE VERY END 😉 *
Alright loves… I’m posting something crazy today! That’s right, I’m doing a post about dating. SAY WHAT?! Seeing as I’m the girl who didn’t receive her first kiss until she was 21, posting about dating feel absolutely absurd. But can I be honest with y’all… I’ve been dying to talk about it! I hope y’all will embrace and accept this new part of my blog because I sort of Love LOVE.
Known as the HOPELESS ROMANTIC growing up, everyone always claimed I had such high standards and ideals of what relationships were / are. First off, I’m going to set the record straight and say I’m very far from HOPELESS, unless you consider being hopeless as a synonym to how I feel about dating at all. Seriously! My relationship stories are FAR from romantic, but looking back they always make me laugh or cry or both or just be like is this real life?
I’m pretty sure I am the only person in my friend group who tells relationship stories that literally sound like an episode of the latest teen drama… I can’t make this stuff up. Trust me! I always think about how I could embellish my life into a TV show and then I sit there and realize that REAL LIFE is way crazier than anything I could possibly come up with. So yes, I am the girl who’s first kiss was with a Kiwi in Amsterdam, I am the girl who had a guy drop her off at her house only to turn around five minutes later just to kiss her, I am the girl who actually had a guy ‘surprise’ take her dancing on a first date because it was in her Bumble profile that she like ‘dancing’… I kid you not, all of these things have happened to me… and yet I am eternally SINGLE.
While I refuse to be called a hopeless romantic, I guess you could say I’m optimistic about my future and relationships, but hopeful… not so much! However, I keep trying and dating because I believe that sooner or later someone will actually be WORTH IT…
Side note: Let me know if you think I should do a review on dating apps… because I’ve sort of tried them all. Some with great success, others not so much.
Anyways… If I have learned anything about going on a million first dates, it’s the struggle that is WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Sometimes you feel fabulous the day of your date, sometimes not so much.
Some days you feel like your SoulCycle class has turned you into a supermodel.
While other days you are pretty sure TOM has decided to turn you into walrus.
That’s why I created MY GO TO DATE NIGHT OUTFIT.
That’s right, I have an outfit for first dates like it’s my job.
I probably sounds crazy, but hear me out. Sometimes you are just not feeling it and the spiral can happen unbelievably fast. The tornado hits, your room becomes a disaster…
and you are left in your underwear staring at the mirror thinking WHY?!
So that’s why I created MY GO TO DATE NIGHT OUTFIT. I’ve worn it on countless first dates, but I always feel FABULOUS wearing it! I even tweak it every once in a while, but the basics are simple!
First you need a watch like this:
No seriously though, you need a watch like this…
It even comes in a super cute box!!
Like come on guys…
Sorry I got distracted…
Second you need a cute flowy top & skirt:
Third, you will need wedge heels:
Now before you diss the idea of wedge heels, hear me out. They are way more comfortable than normal heels, but they still make your legs look BOMB! Look at those calves!!!
Fourth you need a BADASS jacket:
[No pictures has been added as I LOST my leather jacket on DATE… THAT’S RIGHT?! It did it’s job and then I lost it…. WHY WORLD WHY?! And I haven’t found a replacement…. this spot is in memory of my favorite jacket ever]
Now I’m sure you want to see this bomb.com jacket! Right?!
Well you can’t..
It’s gone forever…
I had it for many years…
And it will never return…
So what’s the point…..
Why should it grace the world anymore?!
Maybe I will cave..
UGH…. But I loved it…
Here it is 😦
At least it got to travel the world first. #RIPLeatherJacket
