What to Wear on a Summer Date

As many of you would be very surprised to learn, I have been on a bit of a fitness/health kick lately. Normally, I would consider power shopping in skyscrapers while schlepping bags and boxes through the mall as sufficient exercise. (Done regularly and for a sufficient length of time it has always proven quite adequate ) However, now that swimsuit season has arrived I decided it was high time to be a tad more proactive in my quest to tighten and tone, de-sausage and de-jiggle.

Hence, my decision to take charge of my own well being and dust off my gym membership! But more importantly, I took advantage of the opportunity to snag a whole new batch of gorgeous workout goodies! (An entirely justifiable purchase by the way — seriously, who's to say that you don't workout just a little bit longer when you know you look cute, no?) Anyhoo, I am quite enjoying my stylish new sneakers and the positive effects they are having on my derrière. I mean, there is just no reason why a girl has to look like a jock just because she is outside getting a little exercise, right? Especially when there are so many choices for fabulous workout wear these days. Chic tees and camis, comfy yoga pants, stylish hoodies and even active wear with pockets for your iPod!

In anticipation of wearing tiny strips of Lycra in public, I've also taken a more clinical look at my rear-view (yikes) and the recent appearance of dimples-where-a-girl-doesn't-want-dimples. Yes, I'm talking about that nasty cellulite. Yuck. Well, lucky for me I have a good friend who introduced me to Vichy CelluDestock which is clinically proven to help reduce cellulite and smooth the appearance of hips, thighs and the derriere. I've been told that I'll see a noticeable difference in about 4 weeks! Bring on the flirty skirts!

Anyhoo, I really think my healthier lifestyle is beginning to pay off! I feel better, have more energy and my favorite jeans no longer look sprayed on. In fact, these healthy changes have also led to a (bonus!) more active social life — I met the cutest guy at the dog park last Sunday and we have a date for this weekend! Which, of course, means that I need to find the perfect ensemble to wear on a date. Now, every girl knows that this depends entirely upon the venue of said date. Is it a casual date, like going to a movie and out for dessert? Is it a more formal date, perhaps dinner at a nice restaurant? Or is it an al fresco kind of date, like a picnic at the park followed by a stroll along the pier? Well, darlings, let's cover all the basis!

The Casual Date

The Al Fresco Date

The Informal Dinner Date (charming bistro/local cafe/casual restaurant)

  • I always like to wear a dress when I go out to dinner — there is just something about silky fabric swirling around my legs that makes me feel irresistible. Anyhoo, go with something flirty and floaty, like a chic floral print dress. A cropped summer-weight cashmere sweater is a good call for those sometimes-chilly summer evenings. Strappy sandals and a sweet clutch  complete the look.

The Formal Dinner Date (Exclusive restaurant or dinner party)

  • Time to break out your most gorgeous cocktail dress. It's OK to show a little skin here — think sleeveless, halter, tank, or one-shoulder styles, but keep the length at mid-knee or just above the knee (you want to look sexy not skanky!) A great skyscraper is what the occasion calls for, as well as a stylish evening bag. A silky wrap to ward off the evening chill and a bit of bling at the wrists and you are on your way. And don't forget fragrance! My choice for this summer is Si from Georgio Armani Beauty — a gorgeous light floral fragrance with a sensual undertone, perfect for a warm summer evening.
