The other day, I had two very different events to go to, and only half an hour to change in between them. The first was in the early afternoon and was a street party for the opening of a new bar. It was a lot of fun and I spent the afternoon in a casual summer outfit, while laying in the sun in the middle of a street. Now that's an afternoon well spent. I decided to wear a nice dress which I bought from a local shop and then add leggings and a pair of flats. Not my usual style (as Leia pointed out), but I liked it.
The second event was slightly harder to dress for. It was a more traditional do, which I always have trouble dressing for. I knew it'd be an evening of mingling with respectable old women (fun times) so I had to dress modestly. I opted to stick to a nice south asian outfit. I wanted to mix the traditional suit with more fashionable items, but no mixture I put together looked that good.
What I enjoy the most about going traditional is the shoes I get to wear. And these shoes are really comfortable. I also loved the earrings I wore in the evening. I bought them from Spain and they always liven up an outfit. But I do need advice on how to dress modestly, and still have my own twist to the outfit. And ideas?
