PICKING OUT A DATE OUTFIT | HAPPY VALENTINES DAY 2017

I received quite a number of emails from you guys asking why I "went after" tinder on yesterday's post [WHY TINDER RELATIONSHIPS JUST WONT WORK]
. I guess I just really feel for all the clueless people who are on the site hopping to find something real and long term. Lets forget all that tinder negativity for now though because, Its VALENTINES day. I don't know if I have plans tonight, coz he hasn't called yet. But I went to the Chocolate Festival at Dusit D2 with my friends yesterday and it was amazing lots of yummy treats, laughter and joy. We will be visiting the Two Rivers Mall (which officially launches today) after my classes so I'm excited about that and I really can't wait to share the two vlogs with you guys. What are your valentines plans? do share in the comments below.

Valentines day is a celebration of love. We celebrate love by sharing and spending time with the people we cherish. I believe when you look good, you feel good about yourself and you feel confident and this allows you let loose and enjoy yourself regardless of whatever it is you are doing. So in today's post I'm going to share with you some tips that will help you pick out an outfit for your date. Something that will make you look and feel good and certainly give you the confidence to let loose and enjoy your date. In the photo section of today's post, I am sharing with you outfit ideas and the different date settings you could wear them to.

This post is already looking pretty long so I'm gonna be brief with my points and you guys can can help me by adding on to any points in the comments below.

Picking out a date outfit.

1. Consider the Activity and Venue- If it is your first time going to a certain place or a certain event you can google it to get a feel of the ambiance as this will help you pick an appropriate outfit. When your outfit is appropriate for a function you feel confident and at ease. Can you imagine showing up to a black tie event in a club outfit? that's exactly how it feels.

2. Be Picky with your color selection- Just like your dressing the colors we wear have an impact on how we feel and act, Pick out colors that are flattering to your skin tone and make you feel good about yourself. While corporate ladies are drawn to the Navys, Blacks and Grays leave those for the office because you don't want to come off too strong and formal. Its a Date not a Meeting.

How am I doing at keeping it brief so far?

3. Forget your usual but be comfortable- This is not the Time to pick out those yoga pants you wear when running errands ( did you read about my yoga pants addiction, no..here it is)  or that pair of jeans you always reach out to for casual Fridays. Chances are they are overly stretched out and tired, so you too will look over stretched and tired. Pick out something cute and flirty, maybe classy or elegant that makes you look and feel very young and Vibrant and always make sure you are comfortable.

4. No, seriously...Be comfortable- This is not the time to slip on your sisters pair of heels if you know you can not walk in them. Forget that dress that is too tight around your waist and doesn't leave much room for dessert let alone give you breathing space. This will distract you all Night and take your attention away from your date and you know what he will notice and suddenly neither of you are comfortable,

5.Wear a Skirt or Dress- No seriously do... studies have shown that men like it when women wear dresses or skirts and particularly to dates ( they really like yoga pants too). something about it making them feel more muscular around you. Wearing a skirt or dress makes you look more feminine and cute and guess what he likes it.

So there you go my 5 tips to picking a date outfit, do you have any more tips please share them with the rest of us. and HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO YOU ALL. I LOVE YOU SO SO MUCH. enjoy the last segment of the post.
