Pro tip: don’t cancel afternoon plans to prepare for a blind date. Keep it casual! Take the old-school, clean-slate approach and avoid “researching” your match online — blind dating for purists. Pack a few beauty items for touch ups so you can enjoy golden hour on the boardwalk, and be ready for dinner with a few easy swaps. Worried about styling a post-walk hairdo? Keep the hair a no-fuss situation. This is not the day to try out a new hairstyle.
This sweet, powdery blue dress is ideal for a casual stroll because of its relaxed fit and minimal fabric for the sunny moment. Sunglasses are a must. The woven handbag is decidedly daytime with practicality for an (accidental) stroll into a boutique along the way. Knotted flats match the bag’s crochet weave, both blending casual with cute. If a fabulously packed week left you with no time for a mani-pedi, grab some light gold polish. This color is quick to paint on without the mess, and will literally polish off the look.
Dress for a charming ambience, but don’t overdo it. This body-conscious style is ideal for a first date because it’s not overly fitted. There is a subtle hint of babydoll with the slightly puffed sleeves that maintain its soft appeal, while the elegant sweetheart décolleté and sheer effect add a tasteful touch of sultry. The details’ sweet and sultry mix continues from seam to seam with the thin, ruffled trim and a slight slit at the thigh. Pair with strappy white heels for a summer set that does not scream formal. Gold statement earrings elevate even the summeriest of dresses to a refined nighttime ensemble. For the finishing touch, add a bright pop of color with a sizable clutch. This soft blue pairs well with mustard yellow.
Be there in five!
