ou have just received the four word text message that you have been waiting for, “Want to have dinner?” As your excitement builds up and that bubbly feeling that you use to get when you were sixteen starts to appear, you jump up and down and scream “Yes!” before you actually text that three letter word in the phone. But suddenly, reality kicks in. Because of work and school, you have not been able to go shopping in ages. To you everything in your closet has been done before, and because you want to make that first impression stay in his mind even after you leave the date, you are clueless. You have no earthly idea what you are going to wear. Well let me urge you not to panic! Never over think about what will be worn during a date. Although we think that men have no clue on how hard we worked on our outfits, this is a complete lie. When an outfit is over analyzed, men can always tell. When choosing out an outfit, there is simply three words you need to remember. As you pick out your outfits the words simple, classy, and easy should always come to mind. The little black dress has been worn for decades. I know you probably think that this decision is rather old school, but it is without a doubt simple, classy and easy. Not only does the black dress make you

appear smaller or slim, all black is very classy and sexy. Now, as you put on the dress and you begin to think in your head, “OMG I look plain!” Remember that the black dress is not the end of your outfit. Depending on the venue you will be dining at, a sleek, simple hair style is the safest way to go. You want to keep your jewelry simple! I know it sounds cliché, but the saying “Less is more” is very true. You want to keep his attention on what is important, you! You complete your make-up and hair and you’re ready to walk out the door as soon as you pick the final thing, your shoes. As you open the closet and pick the most obvious and easy choice, stop yourself immediately! The black pump is not always the

SAVE THE WORLD way to go. Slowly guide your hand to that sexy red pump that has not been worn in ages. Although it is a bold choice, it is also a sexy one and will add excitement to your date. Now your sassy black dress and red pump may not save the world, but it could very well save your date!

Fis FEI NVA LELRY HERE!

by: Erin Hayden

The cold winter months have finally come to an end. No more cuddling up in the bed with your special someone watching the same movies over and over again due to the fear of getting frost bite if you walk outside. The sun is finally shining and the soft breeze is here. The dates that you love so much, such as walks in the park, a picnic in the grass, and the fun day at the beach, are now your date choices. Boys are getting excited because they can see a leg that is not in tights, and girls we can not wait to put on that cute beaded sandal that has been staring us down in our closet for months.

SPRING FEVER IS HERE!

1

Here are the top five choices for ladies that you can wear for your upcoming spring fever dates!

2

The cutoff shorts, mid-drift top and cow boy boots. Shorts can give you a chance to show off the leg that has been hiding during the winter months. The cowboy boots add a little flare and sass for my country girls.

Long flowing dresses are in! They are very flirty and with a cute ponytail and a stud earring, it can be worn almost anywhere

Loose skirts above the knee. These skirts are also very easy and comfortable for a walk in the park.

3 4 The short sundress. Theses dresses are very affordable and cute. It can be a very quick and easy choice for a spring date. These are just a few choices that you can use during these last few months, and take it with you into your summer months. Remember- Spring is the most wonderful time of the year. Enjoy!

5

A linen pant and sassy tank top. This outfit can be left for your date such as the picnic. Sitting on the ground it will be easier to have a loose fitting pant that can also keep you cool!!
