Casually Being Impromptu 

Don’t you just love when things happen in your life and you immediately say to yourself, “this is a future post!”? I totally had this moment while having dinner this week!  I thought the title of this post was kind of fun, catchy and pretty random at the same time. All which describes me on the daily!  I wanted to create this simple and impromptu post just to share some ideas on how to be casual and comfy for dinner dates  whether it’s with your girl-friends or with your special someone, husband, whoever.  Being cute while being comfy at the same time is MAJOR KEY for me when choosing a way to pair clothing items.  Once upon a time, I wanted to wear the highest heels and the tightest skirts.  I would be so uncomfortable! But as I have gotten older I only want to be comfy.  Can you agree?

Earlier this week, I was able to link up over dinner with one of my gal pals. She’s a charm and so was dinner at a local restaurant located in Five Points called Publico.  Great location, great interior set up, and awesome food.  It’s not an “upscale” place…I categorize it to be very laid back.  I was aware of where we were meeting for dinner Wednesday evening so I knew that I didn’t have to go for the sexy, sultry look but more of a cute, fun and casual outfit.  Although, I truly believe in the phrase, “there’s no such thing as being overdressed,” this was one of those days where I threw that completely out of the window.  I didn’t really have a process of putting these simple items together but below is sort of what my thought process was for the event:

  • wear a Fall color; nothing too bright
  • polish nails a neutral color that can be shown well in a dim area – – white
  • wear comfortable yet fashionable shoes – – based this on the weather

After considering all of these things, I came up with this outfit:

“Dress how you want to be addressed!”


Romper: Old Navy (no longer in stock)

Boots: Target (no longer in stock)

Denim jacket: Old Navy

Purse: MK Jet set travel tote

So the takeaways from this post are:

  1. When in Columbia go grab a bite to eat at Publico (check out the food blog on IG – TheSouthernBellestonian – to see food deets)
  2. Yes, you can be cute/sexy, comfy, and still work it like there is no tomorrow in an affordable manner
  3. the Iphone 7+ is capable of taking some pretty cool pictures

Hope this helps you in some way now or in the future! Don’t forget to check out my IG too – – thought I’d throw that in there! *wink*
