I've got a few occasions coming up, one is fil's 70th birthday dinner, and I have no idea what to wear.

Day to day I wear jeans n jumpers, obv too casual (scruffy), and on very rare nights out, i wear something a bit too clubby/ott/revealing for a naice restaurant with family.

So what's good for in between?

No dresses because I need boob access for bf. No specific bf tops required, just something that can be pulled up.

Please help in clueless.

How about a pair of smart jeans and wear with a dressy top and blazer type combo?

How about coated jeans, 'going out' top, blazer and heels? Put with some nice jewellery this looks great and not too over the top.

Mint Velvet is good for this sort of thing. I'm a jeans-with-everything person so their stuff isn't too different from my normal style but is that bit smarter.

How about jacquard midi skirt, heels and jumper on top.

Jumpsuit in a nice fabric with zip or button front.

Everywhere has them.

Mint velvet is probably a good starting point.
Going out top might be a bit much skin on show when I take the blazer off. Jumpsuit definitely too much for me.
Like the idea of skirt/heels/jumper.
Haven't worn heels in yonks. hope I don't fall over!

I think blazer is the way to go, over a breastfeeding top. Plus some sparkly jewellery.

I got this top from Oasis at the weekend and had lots of compliments- wore it with jeans and heels
