There are two golden rules when it comes to what I wear to family dinners*. It needs to be comfortable, and it needs to look a little dressy. My dad’s get togethers are always semi-formal, even if it’s just my sister and I who come over. I almost always get a phone call from my sister letting me know what she’s going to wear so I can style appropriately. Or I get a call from her letting me know she wants to dress casually so please-for-the-love-of-god-don’t-wear-a-skirt-like-always. Sometimes I listen. Last night my sister had my dad, stepmom, David and I over to celebrate my dad’s birthday, which was a couple weeks ago when they were out of town. It was a semi formal event and I don’t have pictures of my outfit, but I do have photos of what I wore during the day!
/longest rambling intro ever
I swapped out the shorts for a pleated foral mini skirt and felt very French the whole time. I love this shirt–I found it on a recent shopping trip with my sister and I wear it all the time. Fatal flaw–my sister is cold-blooded and freakishly cold, so her place is always a blazing furnace. I wore the fleece leggings and wanted to die of heat stroke after about twenty minutes. And that’s only a partial exaggeration.

*In this case I’m using my dad’s side of the family, which incudes my stepmom, because that was the most recent family dinner I attended
