So, me and DH are having a rare night away in a slightly boho but still quite posh hotel. It will involve dinner (among other things ) so I'm looking for what to wear. I don't often get the chance to dress up, so would like to be in a skirt/dress but it can't be too dressy, as as I said, it's a bit boho. Ideally, I'd like to wear a long skirt with floral DMs or a knee length dress but then would need to find suitable footwear. Am a size 16 top/14 bottom, better suited to square or scoop necklines. Any suggestions as to styles/colours/shoes most welcome.
Also, please feel free to add any mutton dressed as lamb comments regarding the wearing of DMs by the elderly .
Primark are doing some boots you might like at the mo.
What's your budget for the dress? If you don't get out much I would go for a showstopper dress that you can scruff down and wear everyday - faded glamour iyswim. Eg I have a little mini cocktail dress in cherry print from Uttam that I now wear over jeans with boots and a long-sleeved shrug. Looks like you've made an effort for the schoolrun but it's still informal enough.
