Notice that my hair looks different here, (a) it’s really long (b) it’s black © my bangs are gone. It’s because this is actually an old set of photos, taken last June. I almost forgot I had these, until I was looking something to post for my blog. I intended to publish a photolog of my recent Bangkok trip and two outfit posts, but no, my SD card had to play tricks on me and I can’t transfer photos to my laptop, or transfer the photos anywhere really. Until I find a techie friend who can help me figure out what’s wrong, I have 500++ photos currently in danger of not seeing the light of day again. AAAAACCCKKK.
Anyway, back to my look, I get a lot of questions regarding date outfits. I mean a lot. I go to a school where dressing up really is the least of a person’s priorities so a lot of my college friends would come to me for questions regarding wardrobe choices, including what to wear on a date. This look is a good example of what you can wear, since it can be worn with a pair of flats and a bucket bag for a casual date, then heels and a clutch for dinner. In my case I wore it to a fancy restaurant, which I will review sometime soon.
In fine dining restaurants, I make sure to actually look the part of a critical diner. I picked this pearl embellished peplum button down because it looks mature, polished and very lady-like. Plus, when on a date, always remember to flaunt your assets. I’m not skinny, but I am curvy, so I played with my proportions and the peplum did a great job of showing off my waist, giving me a sexy silhouette.
You guys know I love colors, especially bright ones, so I couldn’t resist pairing the blue top with this adorable floral pencil skirt I found in my mom’s old clothes. It’s high waisted, so it was perfect for hiding that extra bulge I usually get after eating. harhar. The peplum helped concealing my full tummy too.
The reason why I love this outfit so much is because it isn’t the usual date outfit. When you ask a myriad of people about a typical date outfit, the answer would be, a dress, be it cocktail, or a Sunday dress, still a dress. I disn’t want to go the usual route and wear a dress, so I opted for separates that were feminine, and fun.
For my hair, I decided to do curls, since it added flirty into the mix. Fun, feminine, and flirty, what more do you want from a date look?
