New Year... New Beginnings?

Remember that post I wrote a while back about cheap dates?

It was definitely mistimed. My boyfriend and I broke up 4 days later. Merry Christmas to me.

I've done a reasonably good job of not letting my blahs go to my wallet (my waistline may be another story), though to be honest having it happen during the Christmas season I'm not sure whether I should file certain expenditures under "Holiday" or "Bah Humbug".

So, this brings me back to "First Date" territory rather than just "Date" territory. I was looking over the list, and some of the things on there I can't really do right away. Sit at home and watch a movie with someone I just met? Maybe not the smartest idea. Going to have to rethink that one. Also, I've been on very few formal dates in the past few years, I'm not entirely sure I have anything to wear.

So, this is more of a question to all of the financially savvy women in the blogosphere: What would you suggest for a frugal cold weather first date, and what would you wear? I'm giving my wardrobe a critical eye right now, trying to figure out what to do with it. I could really use the help right now!

And a cute scarf that will hang down to keep your chest warm.

I'm going to work on the layering. Unfortunately a lot of my clothing doesn't layer in an attractive fashion, I usually end up slightly resembling the Pilsbury dough boy, lol

That being said, I do have a decent collection of scarves :)
