What to Wear: Casual Day Date

Last Sunday I went on a casual daytime date in NYC. In planning my intended outfit in advance of the date, I had to put together a look that would be chic, yet comfy since I knew I would be traveling and then walking a lot that day. As someone who is more comfortable in heels than flats, I needed to opt for something that would make my legs appear longer, and look dressed up without being over the top. My final selections were the Fab Cable Knit Sweater Tunic from Forever 21—belted with a wide grey belt from H&M, plain black leggings from Forever 21, and the Alfani “Becka” boot in black. I carried my Steve Madden Bruffler bag (shown here) because of the cross body function of the long strap. I finished off the look by adding a black and white plaid wool coat I purchased last year, and a bright yellow scarf (shown here) for a dash of color. I think the result was quite fabulous; and so, by the way, was the date J.
