Date Night Dilemma: Part Two

Hi guys!  I bring you Part 2 [of 3] of the "Date Night Dilemmas" series (be sure to check out the first part here).

This post focuses on outdoor "day" dates, such as a picnic. Dates like these are always welcome in my book because they are casual & sweet! Plus, you can be dressed extra comfortably unlike so many other types of dates.

My advice is to wear flats because you will be trudging through some grass while holding picnic goodies to get to your location. Also, try not to don a dress because it is very hard to look cute (or ladylike) and enjoy yourself when you are constantly trying to hold your dress down while you sit...

Outdoor Picnic [Day] Date
If it is too cold to spend any amount of time outdoors where you live this can be worn to somewhere such as a coffee or bowling date, too.

Gap dark wash skinny jeans: Old from 2011 for about $15 (I used a Groupon and they were 40% off.)
These Gap jeans are my favorite pair ever, and I totally recommend them!  They are amazingly comfortable and have a great wash.  Sadly, mine are starting to wear :(  This pair is very similar!  They are on sale for $34.99 from $69.95 right now, plus they are an extra 30% off with code GAPSALE through 1/15.

I decided to do the same outfit with two different layering options in case some of you guys lean more towards the preppy side or if you are a little "edgier." Isn't it amazing how the same top can be changed up so much just by switching one other piece? Which look do you prefer? Would you wear an outfit like this for a day date?
