Dear one tough muther ,

When online dating and the first date is at a restaurant how should one dress? I can’t decide if wearing A cocktail dress and heals is appropriate or a nice pair of jeans / or slacks with a dressy sweater is better? What do you suggest? Should I bring back up clothes?

Dear Leah,

Depending on the restaurant I think a pair of dressy jeans and a dressy sweater is fabulous. I think if I were going on a first date with someone I had never met on-line or a set up blind date, I’d want to look good and feel confident. I would choose from a skirt, slacks or nice jeans and a sweater or top. I would definitely dress to impress. Truthfully, I don’t think most first dates go to a “cocktail dress” sort of restaurant, unless your dating circle is a lot higher end then most :).
Leah be comfortable, confident, dressed to make a good first impression and I’m sure you will look great.

Good Luck and Huge Muther Hugs,

One Tough Muther
