There are 6 of us from Uni meeting in town for a boozy lunch in a low-key restaurant. We haven't seen each other for months so no doubt everyone will be checking out what the others have on so I want to try and look half-decent!
They all have hi8gh-flying jobs and buy any clothes they want, regardless of the proce tag. I however, do not. I like to make an effor but can't afford to shop where they shop.
Would skinny jeans, long boots, a jumper and scarf cut the mustard?
Sure it would be fine - though ankle boots with your skinnies would look a bit more modern, if that bothers you. I tend to only wear long boots with skinnies if I'm schlepping round the park or going for a walk - ankle boots if I'm in town. How about a jersey dress and boots? And tbh your friends will be far more interested in you than in your clothes, you know!
