This is what I wore to have dinner at a friend's house with DH. I had not seen the host in the flesh in at least 5 years. Another guest I had not seen in about 7 years. it was wonderful! We forgot the time completely and I did not crawl into my own bed until 5am. This was definitely not possible while we were in graduate school (DH and I were in grad school together from 2010 to 2013).
This dress is from Old Navy. It's a drop waist dress that is truly 3 sizes too big in the hips. I have one of those stretchy belts on so that I could raise the dropped waist to just under my belly use the extra fabric to blouse over my belt and raise the skirt from below the knee to just above my knee. I added the red scarf and tights thinking of Ornella's style. My combat boots finish off this look.
What do you think of this?
