Now I have been married for almost seven years, we still have date night and I still like to get dressed up and look nice. We love going out on dates together and spending time together just the two of us, and I always make a special effort with my appearance on these occasions. I think it's really important to spend time looking after yourself, in a sensible way of course, sometimes I get a bit lost in hair extensions and fake tan and look in the mirror thinking, "who ARE you?".
Speaking of date nights, I've been challenged to come up with the perfect "Style it up" First Date outfit from the new Claire Sweeney clothing range, which is really nice, affordable and also looks very versatile and wearable too. I've been given a budget of £180 but to be honest, as a bargain mummy, I can do it for FAR more than that.
The most important thing about dates is being yourself, but in a good way, as in, show yourself to your best advantage. This has to be reflected in what you wear too. Something you feel lovely, comfortable, and flattering in yet glam at the same time (not to mention slimming).
I've created two looks that I think would look great on a first date, the first is here and comprises:
- A lovely camel coat that will last FOREVER (£66)
- Leopard print peplum top (£30), perfect for hiding those lumps and bumps.
- Stretch slim jeans that to me look more like black trousers (£21)

I've also created a second look for those who are going on a really romantic date, perhaps somewhere posh for Valentine's Day....
The camel coat is as before and the Embellished dress is priced at £65.
What do you think?
So anyway, I've entered this blog post into a competition to win £50 voucher for my readers, the post with the most comments wins, so my question is, what would YOU wear on a date?
