Functionality over romance

The theme for this outfit was supposed to be 'date night', but with the mandatory use of jeans and a cami.  I have a few problems with this.  Firstly, "date night" is a really ambiguous term.  Are we talking about a date to impress a potential suitor or a date with a boyfriend?  Because they are two very different things.  I mean, if it's a date with a boyfriend, I've already hooked him so I'm a little less concerned with having to look absolutely stunning.  And since most dates revolve around a meal, I'd wear a dress/skirt instead of jeans...y'know, gotta wear something that can expand and make room for (or hide) extra food width.  What, you thought I wore dresses just to be pretty?  Pfft, it's all about the functionality needed when eating.  Yep, I'm romantic like that.
