What To Wear On A First Date

Pink trousersDates, lets be frank, they’re lovely but a nightmare. I remember refusing to go out for meals with guys because I knew I would embarrass myself and get food all down my face or spill ketchup down my white shirt.. YES I still eat ketchup with everything. I felt sick at the thought of someone I fancied staring right into my face whilst scoffing a big lump of steak and then smiling with all the fat stuck in my teeth. I mean it’s not great is it. Not to mention the sweaty hands and nervous fast racing heart beat and dodgy stomach.

I have luckily been with my boyfriend for over 4 years, we are childhood sweethearts, so I’ve gotten past the whole I’m to embarrassed to fart in front of you stage, lads we ain’t flowers (if you’re reading) BUT FLOWERS GO ALONG WAY. NEVER underestimate how far buying a random bunch of flowers for your new girl – or not so new girl goes.

What to wear?

If you try too hard and think about it too much, this will just make you more nervous and frustrated. I’ve always loved a cute and comfortable look, that’s just me, I’ve found a girly, comfortable outfit that works if you’re going for a nice meal, or going to play pingpong etc. I’ve made and still do make big mistakes when going out for meals with outfits. It’s NOT OK to wear high waisted jeans with a tight body suit when you’re planning on eating half a weeks shopping in one evening. I have multiple times, sat in restaurants and HAD to undo my button which, on a first date will be embarrassing, so lets avoid that!

These paperbag waist trousers are perfect, they untie so you can readjust if you need to and they’re a perfect comfy material. My friend said to me they’re like posh tracksuit bottoms… that’s what they feel like anyway. I’ve linked a few different colours (I want them ALL) below and the ones I’m wearing are £27 not bad right?

Crop tops are cute, I love showing a little bit of skin (not too much) my eyes are up here………… This frilled hem top is hands down the cutest little crop top I own and it’s only £18. There are so many to die for crop tops on M.E right now and this is definitely one of them.

SO.. shoes, obviously the most important to me. Trainers are my favourite and I found these in DUNE, super comfy and they go so well with this whole outfit, perfect for any activity – bowling, cinema, whatever you’ve planned to do activity wise! We all know, when it comes to heels, I’m not the best with them, however when there is an occasion, or I fancy dressing up properly, then I will wear heels. I picked these grey killer frill heels from M.E I haven’t worn them out yet, but if you’re going for meal, you won’t be walking around in them for hours (thank god)
