The word "date" is defined as, "a social or romantic appointment or engagement."
Yes...unfortunately, I had to look up what the word meant in order to write this post. I've been so out of the game, I didn't even know what the word meant. It's not that I'm single (and my boyfriend isn't a loser), but we just haven't had time to get together and hang out (long distance relationship problems). But guess what? I got a date, y'all!
It's Friday night and I have a date. In trying to figure out what to wear for a last minute outing, I found myself looking to my style icon Kim Kardashian (y'all can hate her if you want...idc) for some inspiration. Like Kim, most of my closet is neutrals and shiny stuff, so I knew that she could help me.
Though I found a few looks of Kim's that I liked, I didn't see anything that really stood out to me. So in combining a few of her looks and skimming my wardrobe, I was able to put together a look that I feel is sexy without being too revealing but will make my man do a double take.
I LOVE lingerie for public wearing. A lot of people won't agree or wouldn't dare, but I was rocking a silk cami and blazer back in high school. Now that I'm almost 30 (yikes!), I know how to push the limits a bit.
Putting on a lace bodysuit (even if it's under another shirt) instantly ups the sex appeal in any look. Why? It's not really about other people seeing it as much as it's about knowing that you have it on. Think about the way you feel walking around in your sexiest pair of underwear - wearing a bodysuit multiplies that feeling by 1000 easily.
I'm pairing my lace bodysuit with a simple, bodycon midi skirt by Vince Camuto. I love the length of a midi skirt. Even though it covers 90% of your leg, there is something intriguing about that hemline.
Rounding out the look is a sheer duster coat. This is a great way to cover up your back and arms without being completely concealed. If the sheer duster is a bit too revealing for you, throw on a classic white button down tied at the waist. Add some simple strappy heels and jewelry to complete the ensemble.
