Petite Fashion Challenge #18: What to Wear to Impress your Date!

This month’s PFC challenge is hosted by Easy Petite Looks. Amber says:

I think this PFC will be a lot of fun for all of us, regardless of whether we’re single or in a relationship. The single ladies should be awesome at this. ;) I’m excited to get some inspiration from you! For the taken ladies, we still need to dress up for date night (at least once in a while!!). Generally, I think we wear what makes us feel good, regardless of what other people think. But what is your secret for making your outfit a little more memorable?? Have fun with this one! Bonus points for pics taken with your dates or on a girls night out!!

When I go out, I like to wear what makes me feel confident. I don’t want to feel uncomfortable and be fussing with my clothes when I certainly have other things to worry about, like say, not embarrassing myself?? Haha. If the weather allows and if appropriate for the venue, my outfit usually involves jeans. But given that all of my denim is now in storage until September, I have to go with something else.

Many women like to go super flirty and girly for “date night” or girls night out, but that’s just not me. I prefer a look that is a bit more androgynous but with a touch of femininity–a little leg never hurts, right??

Check out the rest of the PFC looks here!

    Your outfit is super cool and really ‘you’. You have gorgeous legs… so make sense you wanna show your legs. Yes, you should!

  2. Jessy July 26, 2012

    Ah, this is probably my fave date night look so far. Very polished and sophisticated. I like the pop of green!

  3. Petite Therapy July 26, 2012

    Love the look! Clean. Classy. I think the pumps adds just the right touch of femininity.

  4. haha, a little leg doesn’t hurt. these shorts look amazing on you, your legs look so long!!

    Wow–you look stunning! Those green shorts are great on you, and your legs look a mile long. So chic!

  7. Kerry July 26, 2012

    I love this look! It’s perfectly styled, and your legs are gorgeous!

  8. Cynthia C. M. July 26, 2012

    Like I said on another blog, I would never have paired shorter shorts with heels, but like Phi Phi, you were able to make your look nice/lady-like/proper.

  9. Thervan July 26, 2012

    Ur legs look awesome!!

  10. PetiteintheCity July 26, 2012

    I totally agree on the comfort part!  Plus this outfit could easily go from work to play (well depends where you work of course!).  I love the green shorts…I saw similar colour/style at Aritzia but too expensive..

  11. New Petite July 27, 2012

    Love the shorts! You look great and I think it is all about comfort!

  12. Aubrey Dang July 27, 2012

    you know what?  this outfit is you.  it’s your style.  you didn’t change too much just to impress a date; u still kept it genuine to your taste.  and if he’s a leg man…well, then he’ll definitely try to stretch the date into dessert!  

    i’m glad these shorts worked out for u.  they’re really great on you!

  13. rites of beauty July 27, 2012

    Such a lovely pair of shorts.  Great date outfit – simple and chic and totally in line with your style 🙂

  14. noniq July 27, 2012

    Your style is so elegant yet.. cool, love it 🙂 I’ve never thought to go on a date with blazer but you simply did it 🙂 

  15. Eliz July 27, 2012

    WOW I love this look it is clean cut and hot at the same time…loving your style…especially your work style…I am your new follower!! 🙂

  16. lisacng July 27, 2012

    And so easy from day (work) to night out! I agree – be yourself for date night, whether that’s fem/flirty or menswear-inspired! Why are your jeans in storage? Are you moving?

  17. Joanna July 27, 2012

    I was really surprised to scroll down the photo and see those shorts, but I do love the look! Business at the top, party at the bottom. Would’ve loved to see a pop of colour with the shoes, though.

  18. TOBeautyReviews July 27, 2012

    This is a perfect night on the town outfit! Often I find that ladies wear too little clothes – best to leave it to the imagination 😉

  19. Petite and hungry July 27, 2012

    those shorts are super cute!

  20. roe July 27, 2012

    aah!! i love this look! those green shorts add a fantastic pop of color!

  21. SewPetiteGal July 29, 2012

    Um yeah, legs don’t hurt – especially with your gams!  Spinning agrees with you 🙂  Loving the sophisticated take on shorts here!
