What I Wore For My Casual Date

Tank top & sweater: Ann Taylor Loft (similar); Skinny jeans: Ann Taylor Loft (similar); Shearling booties: Zappos; Scarf: H&M; Scarf as headband: Vintage
Bear with me as I'm trying a new setup for taking my own outfit pics. On Thursday I had my first date in a looooong time. My friends have pushed me to go back on OkCupid and even offered to help "spruce up" my profile. Everyone I know is on OkCupid (no joke!). Can I just say that SATC didn't prepare me for the circus of Manhattan dating? We all know how Kim feels about dating but damn it's hard in the city!

But I digress... it was a casual date at this small tea place in the East Village called Saint Alps. I ordered a Lychee Nectar (delicious!) thanks to a FourSquare recommendation. Since it was late afternoon, I kept my outfit casual. This sweater is super comfy but also kind of crop length so I opted for a longer tank top underneath to make sure nothing was hanging out.

My attempt of taking a pic of myself in my bathroom

For my beauty look, I did my favorite: cate eye + bold lips. I'm wearing MAC's "Fusion Pink." I wrapped this vintage scarf on my head and tied into a knot.

Rose gold rings: Kohl's (similar here)

I kept the jewelry simple with these rings from Kohl's. Kohl's has great jewelry - I always get lots of compliments when I wear my pieces from there. Showing off my manicure with my Rebecca Minkoff bag.

What would you wear for a casual date? Did I do good?

  2. AH DATE!!! You go girl!!! Your outfit looks great and loving the coral lipstick on you. Plus your nails look fab.

    okay so these pictures are def. better then in the mirror shots lol. Keep playing around with the tripod in different areas of your apt. I must say natural light is the best so whatever room gets the most light try that. It's all about just playing around with it and finding the best light.
