Ballerini posted a throwback to the beginning of her relationship with Stokes on Aug. 19, sharing a clip on TikTok of herself preparing for their first official date.
“Happy weekend,” she captioned the post, “heres a video i sent to my best friend before my first date with chase #howdoidothis #rollingupthewelcomemat.”
Set to her song “How Do I Do This,” which is about going on a first date after many years, Ballerini models her outfit in the video.
“Here’s the look, with the boots” Kelsea says while checking herself out in a full-length mirror. Turning around to showcase her half-up, half-down hairstyle, she adds, “We’ve got the hair clip, because we’re trying to be a cool girl.”
She continues speaking to an unnamed friend, explaining, “He’s picking me up and we’re going to a sushi place and I’ll call you tomorrow and for a full update.”
Taking a deep breath and raising one arm and finger in the air, she finally says, “I can do this. I can do this.” And, after doing a little dance, she proclaims, “It’s just a date. You just go and you just eat food and you talk about things that you do, OK?”
