DP and I are going on a rare night out tonight- for something to eat and a drink or 2 after. It's bloody awful weather out there- and I can't really be arsed getting "dressed up". Can I just go out in what I've been wearing all day? Navy thin v neck, jacquard mini, black opaques and black boots?

I can't be arsed, but rare to have a babysitter.

Is your DH getting changed? If not, don't bother. Your day time outfit is about as smart as a lot of my going out outfits.

Have fun!

DP and I are going out for a meal with friends tonight. I'm going to wear the same jeans, t-shirt and jumper that I've worn all day. The only reason that DP will change is cos he wanted a bath. Otherwise he would be in the same jeans and t-shirt that he's had on all day.

I can't see anything wrong with people dressing up to go out if that's what they enjoy, but equally there's no need to do it for the sake of it.

Surely the main point of the evening is that you are having some time to yourselves and that you can relax and chat without any little ones calling down for you.

You look better than I do, so I'd say stay as you are. Dh usually asks if he wants me to make an effort, but then he does too.

DP will change his top, but I'm generally much more dressed up than he is when we go out.

So I'll not get changed, but will have to get some motivation to stick on some makeup!

I would shower and change. Wouldn't feel right if I didn't.

I can't see the point of putting make up on if you can't be bothered/ don't enjoy doing it. It's not compulsory.wink

Sounds like quite a dressy outfit already , to be fair.

I'd get changed if I were going out, but I'm wearing jeans I don't really like and a hoodie with elbow holes.

Why do you even need to put make-up on if you don't feel like it? If it's just you and DH and he's coped with seeing you without make-up all day, I can't see the point.

I'd make an effort and shower to shower and change. It just kind of marks the end of an ordinary day and the start of a bit of a night out with your husband and pals. Its not something you do often so celebrate it smile

I suppose it depends where you're going or doing. Cinema or local pub/pub grub then stay as you are. If you're going to a flashy bar or swanky restaurant unless you feel dressed for it you will feel underdressed, uncomfortable and you won't enjoy the night.

Same here. I've just had a bath and put pretty much the same outfit back on, just a different skirt and heels. Going to have a glass of wine and do my make up now as am out with quite glamorous friends and feel a scruff without. grin

If I can be arsed or its a special occasion I do but otherwise as long as clothes are clean and smartish then i don't bother

Sounds quite dressed up compared to what i am wearing. I think it depends very much on where you are going - local weatherspoons you will be overdressed, michelin starred restuarant with silver service, you might feel underdressed. But honestly, i rarely change to go out, can't be frigged.
