SD's Xmas play- Poll on my outfit

I love dogs's picture

SD12 is the Grinch in her play on Friday. She has the costume ready to go and is excited. She has front row seats for DH and me. I assume BM, baby daddy, and BM's parents are coming- BM's toddler should be in daycare.

I want suggestions on what's appropriate to wear. It is casual but I want to look nice (and better than BM }:) she makes DH out to be an absentee father which isn't true ). The options are:

Black and white checkered flannel shirt that flares at the bottom with black jeans and black flats or boots.


A nice sweater with black slacks and black flats?

I'll have to try them both on Friday! I'm working until noon then the play is at 2 so I'll pick DH up on the way to her school.

I won't have to try super hard- BM's wrinkles make her look 10 years older than she is and she's already 10 years older than me.

I say a nice sweater with black pants. Spend a little extra time on make-up and hair. I am sure you will look gorgeous! Enjoy the play.

Thank you I'm excited! I know SD will have fun. I'm going to rubber rod curl my hair the night before so I have bouncy curls!

I'm thinking simple and professional will look better, too. I don't want to look like I'm trying too hard but I want to look well put together and represent DH and SD in a good way.

The first option. You are attending a school play, not working in the office.

I don't think that outfit seems like trying too hard at all.

Ok ok I was thinking more "casual" may be the way to go. I also have a dress my mom gave me but it's an "old lady" dress and I haven't even tried it so that may be an option lol

Thank you. I am thicker than BM but she's also overly skinny due to being a heavy smoker and caffeine addict. I have put on 10 lbs so I'm a little self conscious. She also had a boob job after SD and I'm au naturale. GBM is also stick thin so DH and I look like giants around everyone else!!

I think the first outfit sounds cuter but I have really been into plaid/flannel lately. It's a little too dressed down for my office so I wear it whenever I can.

It's really modest- 3/4 sleeve and it buttons all the way up so zero cleavage shows. I'd wear it with tights but it's not quiiiiite long enough for that. I just want an excuse to wear my fancy boots lol

Ya, I always struggle with "is this a shirt or a tunic?" Sometimes I push the limits but usually on nights DH and go out.

Well if you want to wear the fancy boots, that's what you should wear! You'll have a nice spring in your step that will make the whole outfit look good!

I hope so! I've only worn them once since I rarely dress up and don't have a reason to wear them.

To moving on: I live for tights and tunics!!

I pretty much wearing the one that says "without the tank underneath" but with leggings and black boots. I was out sick yesterday and it was the most comfortable outfit I could come up with.

I love these! I'm self conscious in my jeans because they're fitting tighter and my muffin top shows, but if I wear my checkered blouse with them I have that "pregnant" look. Blah.

I bet you look fantastic! I love that look. For me being comfortable is priority, but nobody said comfort = frumpy Biggrin

I work in scrubs lol I have about an hour to choose an outfit so I'll see what I feel most comfortable in. Thank you!
