I'm 31. Can I wear this outfit?

stylefruits help much appreciated! I would wear with converse (low cut).

The outfit is for a night out with dh in London, going for a meal somewhere local to wherever our hotel is and then to the theatre but the theatre involves lots of walking and I need flats if not trainers.

I'm thinking this kind of outfit or a midi floaty kind of dress with ballet pumps? I've lost all sense of style right now. Am I on any kind of track? much appreciated.

I'm tall and size 10-12 (ok more on the 12 right now but in 3 weeks hopefully more 10) just below shoulder length thick hair brown with highlights and I've just come out of a long readjustment process, I've embraced the pale and am rejecting all fake tan. Any more info needed please ask and thank you!!!

I would ideally like to wear a dress because it feels a bit more special iykwim and I spend all week in jeans or the like.

I would have no clue what type of bra you could wear with a dress like that. Not sure about wearing it with cons either sorry.

IMO, that dress is wishy-washy and, you are going soon, totally wrong for the season.
I wouldn't wear Cons to meal and theatre either.

* if you are going soon, I mean.

Hmmm yes you're probably right. Going the end of March, the dinner won't be a posh one and the theatre is not your usual theatre experience, it's more of a grungy warehouse theatre and there won't be any sitting down or maltesers.

Any ideas?

Don't wear converse - wear some ankle boots.

You'll freeze. Thats a very summery outfit. Some years you could have snow at the end of march.

perplexedpirate Sun 02-Mar-14 11:38:32

No maltesers?!
What's the point? wink

Yeah - great for August (in Provence).

You will be standing and walking around for 3 hours. Wear appropriate shoes for that.

It's verrrry interesting. I think some people have been to see it several times to try to piece it all together. Enjoy!

Nothing to stop you taking maltesers. Don't resist being split up from your partner. It will give you the chance to compare notes at the end.

BillyBanter Sun 02-Mar-14 11:53:52

If it's not posh just wear jeans and a nice top.

It's a lovely dress but I'd worry I'd feel a bit exposed in it. U r on the right lines though! I'd def want to try a dress like that on before buying.
Dress and converse or boots with tights?

Mumraathenoisylion Sun 02-Mar-14 14:38:12

I think you're right, I'd probably feel a bit exposed. I'm sure in my mind I think I'm still 18 and size 8. I went to try on some dresses today and felt like a whale in them all, my legs are also a lovely shade of mottled pink with some blue veins on. So that's a no to the dress and no to bare legs and converse.

Any way I can lose 2 dress sizes in 3 weeks without starving myself/dropping a food group??

If not any dress ideas that will cover me but still be quite pretty would be great!!!

you will FREEZE

Mumraathenoisylion Sun 02-Mar-14 15:24:17

Ok so the original idea is out...I would freeze/look ridiculous etc...

Anyone have any ideas????? Pleeease?

No jeans!

No - completely wrong for the season. You'd look silly and be very cold (and probably dripping wet too).

How about this sort of thing with a scarf and a biker jacket or pea coat/

Mumraathenoisylion Sun 02-Mar-14 16:22:41

Ok, anyone got any links to some nice dresses?

I'm not wearing has been decided. Argh.

What did you think of my link? Where do you usually shop? How much do you want to spend? Have you got any other footwear than Converse?

Nice if you don't mind polyester

With opaques and flat boots plus scarf and jacket, then whip off scarf and jacket for the theatre, to reveal nice back detail.

tea dress /skater dress with boots?
