How do you dress up to look like you're not dressed up? I had that dilemma a few nights ago when BF and I were headed out to dinner.
BF and I had reservations at a pretty nice steakhouse in Buckhead earlier this week so we knew we had to be appropriately dressed, but also didn't want to seem like we were trying too hard (this is all just in my head). Plus BF's been wearing pretty much the same prepster garb of polos and khakis everyday since he was like 14, so I knew he wasn't going to vary up much just for dinner.
But me? I hemmed and hawed in front of closet for like an hour - trying to put together the "perfect" I'm-appropriately-dressed-to-come-to-dinner-in-this-very-nice-establishment-but-I-didn't-purposely-get-dressed-up-just-for-this-meal-and-didn't-spend-an-hour-trying-to-figure-it-out outfit (see how my crazy mind works?)
So here's what I finally ended up with - partly because I wanted to wear a dress, partly because I needed an outfit I could still EAT in, and mostly because this is what I had on when it was time to go.
I'm not whining and saying that I think I look bad - I think I look nice.
But I don't know if this was the right outfit and STILL am thinking about it - I know, I know, get over myself.
Dress: Gap knit henley dress
Tights: Forever 21
Shoes: Franco Sarto black pumps
Any of you ladies ever have moments of absolute fashion blankness? Or am I really alone in my craziness?
