Ugh! Just because I'm a mom doesn't mean I have to be frumpy!
Recently my family and I attended a function for the athletic club at the kids' school. We were told to dress in dressy casual attire, so we girls wore dresses and the guys wore slacks and nice shirts. We get there and about half the folks who came were in jeans and t-shirts, some of the women wearing shorty shorts and tank tops. I didn't think anything of it since it was our first time at one of these things, but we did all feel pretty overdressed for the thing.
As we're filing through the line for the buffet, this woman hisses, "I can't believe she's wearing that! She's a MOM now! She should dress like one and cover up." I turned around and asked who she was talking about and she narrowed her eyes and said me. I was like, "Me? What's wrong with this?"
Is this an inappropriate dress for a dressy casual function with parents and kids?
