I recently found out that a local Thai restaurant that I used to frequent is now doing all-you-can-eat banquets during the week. So naturally my parents, my aunt and uncle and I wasted no time hopping in the car and hauling ourselves to sample the dinner fare. And we were not disappointed. But before I headed out for an evening of deluxe food and first-rate company, I had to decide on what to wear.
I often make the mistake of overdressing for events such as this. It’s so easy to get carried away and winding up wearing something that’s much too much for the occasion. For this particular dinner, I wanted to look dressed up, but not over the top. My solutioin was to pair a fairly casual tee shirt with a simple skirt and then jazz it up with fancy hosiery and shoes. And I think it worked a treat, don’t you?
I am wearing:
- Cruella De Vil tee shirt from Threadless
- Emerald green skater skirt from Princess Highway
- Nude fishnet tights from Razzamatazz
- Gingham heels from Scooter
- Drop pearl earrings from Louvisa
Nude fishnets are one of my most favourite types of legwear. They look effortlessly vintage, they go with every colour and they are so easy to wear. These ones have lasted me so many years and they’re ideal to wear in summer when you don’t want to be completely bare-legged but it’s too hot to don full stockings.
I was so comfortable and cool in this outfit, but I still felt dressed up enough for dinner out with the family.
