I was in the pharmacy about a year ago, when I noticed a wave of giggles coming from the couple in front of me. Their playful energy was engaging everyone in line that day.Both tall, slender, probably late 60′s and stitching up the space between them with their soft glances.
That’s when I decided I’d rather live single than settle with anything less than a similar quirky connection. Someone that doesn’t take themselves too seriously, but just enough to do good. Yea…I’m hopeless. So you can imagine the thought that goes into a date night, especially a first date. Instead of creating any expectations, I’m focusing my efforts on having fun and dressing appropriately. The latter is a tough bit for a night out in January. Luckily, I’m going casual and keeping warm. I’ve put together a couple plus size outfits…
I stick with flats or boots for a casual setting. Especially in these icy temps.
Lately I love the coupling of blue and black. I think of creating outfits in the same way I would design a room. Use one or two hues, and maybe a third accent color and then work with various patterns within those hues. This doesn’t always apply. Sometimes I get a little wild with mixing colors.
For a date night though, I would say keep it neutral. You’ll have plenty of time to flash it up with bright colors- if that’s your thing. There is quite a bit of psychology that comes with color, and you’ll both be affected by that. So wear what makes you feel confident, and create the mood with a color of your choice!
More importantly- have fun! Be who you are in this moment, and don’t apologize for that.
