Nice country pub. I'm 5'9", size 12, brown bobbed hair, ok legs, 40 something. Please help!

Skinny jeans, boots, plain long sleeve T, leather jacket + fur scarf or or faux fur jacket. Nice shiny hair and good make up, possibly biggish hoop or drop earrings.

That's what i'd wear.

If it was a newish date i'd wear my over the knee block heel suede boots or heeled ankle boots, if you've been dating a while or he is very casual then knee high biker boots. (wellys in the boot in case there is a walk sprung on you!)

I'd wear something along the lines of: skinnies, knee high or ankle boots, fitted jumper, biker jacket and faux fur scarf.

Oh I like a 'snap' with Remus she gives great fashion advice grin

Thanks all. What about skinnies with loafers? Stripe Breton & linen blazer, and big scarf? Too sloany??

Have you met in real life before?

If not, flat shoes.

Nothing wrong with looking "sloaney" if that's your style.

Denim knee length skirt, flat black knee high boots, dark grey cashmere sweater, red lipstick.

Linen blazer would be a, 'No' from me, sorry. It's February.

I like the top half half of DarkNavy's outfit, but if you have good legs then please show them off in jeans as per Remus and Faux's suggestions... and I wouldn't go with loafers or linen either - if you're cold you won't be comfortable/confident. Ok, nothing new to add, clearly!

Loafers and linen would get a no from me.

Dark rinse jeans, fitted cashmere crew neck /polo neck in navy. Tan ankle or knee high boots. Grey coat or coatigen, scarf, tan bag.

Wellies in car a good idea.

If it was a date-date I would be tempted to wear something that emphasises a good feature ie I have a slim but curvy shape - so would be tempted to wear something fitted (for me skinny jeans, charcoal/navy jumper or tight breton, ankle boots, sleek hair, smokey eye). Big scarf would swamp my niceish boobs and linen always wrinkles on me. You sound tall and slim with good legs - so either skinny jeans like others have said or a mini and tights. Highlight lips or eyes, whatever is better for you.

I would have suggested similar to blueeyed
