Cheers! Here’s to date night done right, feeling fabulous with a hint of sexy. It seems that first date drinks are quickly replacing the traditional dinner date, a transition I’m definitely partial to.  After all, a glass of bubbly certainly takes the edge off an awkward first encounter.

So, first things first, what does one wear to cheeky first date drinks? Playing the dating game myself, I’m all for helping out a sister! So here are my top 4 tips to styling a fabulous, (champagne friendly) first date outfit.

1. Like Paris, an LBD is always a good idea. Classic and understated, a little black dress will have you feeling fierce and sexy as you sip your cosmo. Not to mention, black is a slimming colour, so you’ll be your most confident you!

2. Put your best foot forward with a point. Point heels are very flattering, helping to extend the line of your leg and create the illusion of long, slim pins!

3. Show off a little sparkle. Other than your stellar personality, a little bit of bling shows you’re a girl with good taste.

4. Embrace your natural beauty. It’s no secret that men love natural beauty, so keep your makeup game as natural as possible. Think fresh dewy skin, slightly flushed cheeks, a soft lip and subtle highlighting for a little extra glow. Keep eyeliner to a minimum, and instead coat those lashes in luxe mascara. After all, it’s perfectly acceptable to bat those lashes at him!

Do you have a little style secret for a first date? I’de love to hear it first, so leave me a note below!

A little romance…a little Date Night Inspo!

alt="Valentines Day Date Night Outfit"
Welcome to February lovers! It’s a special month for me as it marks my birthday, a short and sweet 28 day calendar and of course, Valentines Day. Let’s be honest, Valentines Day can be a bit depressing for single ladies, especially when one has to endure countless scrolling through rose filled Facebook feeds. But I’m not putting away the bon bon’s just yet. This year I’m totally on board the love train and ready to celebrate Gal-entines; the romance of friendship! So whether you are a taken lady or a single miss, prepare yourself for the romance that awaits you, on The Blonde Silhouette!
Of course most little romances, start with dinner, dessert or cocktails. So, what goes into an outfit? Depending on the hotspot, I start with an eye-catching cocktail dress in a flirtatious hue! This coral Karen Millen number is bound to turn heads with it’s bold shade and fit and flare structure. As a golden rule, a perfect dress is nothing without a perfectly paired heel, and these metallic Michael Kors points are nothing if not fierce! Carry those credit cards and makeup must-haves in a delicate clutch and team with matching, golden jewellery. Finally, pop the Champagne and toast a fabulous evening with your gorgeous man, or wonderful besties.
