Have a date coming up and he said it was semi-formal. I'm used to "jeans and a nice shirt" kind of dates, so please help!

Semi formal means different things to different people. But most women will likely show up in:
a) A pretty blouse and a pair of dress pants
b) a dress
I'll link you to some examples.
You can't really go wrong with a Black dress. It's basic but you can dress it up with some accessories. If you aren't comfortable with wearing a dress, I would suggest a nice top and some dress pants. Then just wear a pair of heels or flats with it.
With a blouse or dressy top, you can wear some nice dress pants or dark pants. I would try to avoid jeans because depending on the event it may not fit the event. Dress pants or a skirt are pretty safe bets for semi formal.
Some people wear a cocktail dress, while others will wear a blouse/dressy top and pants. The important thing is that you are comfortable, because sometimes these events can be long and you don't want to have to worry about what you are wearing the whole time.0
