I suck at dressing down, I have some weird addiction to dressing to the nines all the time. But my secret weapon to having to appear casual is something denim, be it a denim jacket, a chambray shirt or just plain jeans. I have a confession to make, I once upon a time had a blog that documented all the mishap dates I was going on. From a guy that was of pirate descent who wanted to give me a foot rub on our first date to a guy who was so out of touch with reality that he thought LV was level of veracity. I don't think I'll ever be brave enough to share that with you but Janet does with her blog Summer Setup. Her friend sets her up with blind dates and she goes on them and reports back. Their writing is charming and relatable, it's worth checking out!
