unch, bruch, cockails and coffee dates are KEY to see if those initial conversations have the potential to lead down the road to ‘relationship central’
or take a sharp left to the land of ‘friends zone
.’ SF has endless neighborhoods of yummy restaurants and cute cafes so while my friends and I were enjoying the super warm weather last Sunday, I snapped a few pics of my sister on a “fake date
” with my brother’s friend, Morgan. Sounds complicated already? I assure
you no feelings were harmed in the making of this post and both parties claim they only ‘like’ each other as friends.
I’d like to introduce you to Morgan and my sister, Jody, (who you’ve seen often on my blog). The two are wearing some some casual spring fashion trends on a fake date at the Creamery in San Francisco. I have a few tips during the early stages of dating and please feel free to share your’s….
Simple dates equal less pressure. There doesn’t have to be a stuffy over-priced dinner, there’s more of an opportunity to be yourself and a more respectable chance to bail if the date is really THAT bad.
Body Language: She’s leaning back and clutching her little iPad purse meaning she’s not into close talkers. And he gets that, so he’s giving her space. +1 Morgan
Why So Serious? Girls always say they like a guy with a great sense of humor and…it’s true. +1 Morgan
Sunshine, Crepes & Mimosas
is a Hot Spot! It was recently featured on the popular tech blog Uncrunched
as “the place” to meet up now that so many companies like Twitter & Zynga are based in SF.
Spring ’12 Must Have Accessories: I’m a big fan of playful white watches and anything in mint like these earrings from F21. Ladylike hats are also stylish on sunny days~ H&M.
I’m excited to announce I’m partnering with Report Footwear
” sandals are from their NEW
Casual Spring Date Apparel: For her
~ I wanted her comfy, but still cute so I opted for a girly white lace skirt and denim top with the Report sandals. For him~
Dark denim (Levis 501
) is easy with a plaid or plain collared shirt (H&M
) (please leave shirt untucked with jeans
). Stick with neutral shoes (Sperry TopSiders
) and opt for a watch (Fossil
) and shades as accessories.
BEHIND the SCENES
It was a busy day at the Creamery as my sister and I met up with my friend and fellow Bay Area blogger, Sara, of Aqui on her shoot for the City Supply Co. and their new “March Madness” tee’s here.

Special thanks to Jody and Morgan for creating some pretty authentic looking fake chemistry.
What is your favorite kind of simple date? Are you okay with a frappuccino on the patio or do you prefer filet mignon and fine wine?
Have a great weekend!
