so ive got a few day time/early evening dates coming up and i want to wear a dress.

I cant seem to find anything i like and could do with some help.
Im 31, 5ft3 and a size 12/14. I dont want anything too dressy becuase of the times of the dates... but still want to look nice.. but not overdressed.
Plus - what do i do with my legs? not sure if it will be too cold ( two weeks away) for bare legs...??
help?

Dates as in romantic dates? Lucky you!

What's your budget? What's your colouring? Any idea what you'll be doing?

yep - romantic dates..!!! LOL
dont want to spend a huge amount really....
ive got long dark hair and currently have a tan.
Just pub, probably meal with one or two of them......
am thinking i should just save the bother and wear jeans... ive got lots of nice shoes... so would just need a new top.......
but i did want to wear a dress really. If they were planned for earlier i would wear one of my summer dresses... but that might look a bit daft mid sept?

would any of your summer dresses work with leggings?

also, as long as your dresses aren't "strappy" then I don't see why they wouldn't work mid-September, if you team them with a cardi.

Here are some that I like. All could be made more autumny with a cardie or tights and boots.

pretty floral

Really like this but may be too casual?

blue floral

Someone linked to this the other day after they'd bought it - looks lovely

plainer but would look great with your colouring

this is very nice in the red and the purple

Any of those up your street?

Bunny it was me who linked to the purple next dress, and yes I can recommend it, it would work with tights/boots or high heels
