The party is from 5 to 9 pm at a nice home near the CA coast. I've got nothing in my closet. I've never been fashionable. I'm normally just wearing jeans and a floral tshirt. I'm in my late 50s, 5'4", short-waisted, average build, size 6, I guess, usually small or medium tops. I want to be comfortable and presentable and maybe make a good impression. I feel like I often end up in too casual clothes.
I prefer natural fibers. A blend is ok. No linen. Maybe a longish skirt and a short sleeved or 3/4 sleeved top. Or a dress. I don't like clothes to be too tight. But of course they need some shape! Not overly fem. I pretty much have a farmer tan. Very white legs. I am fair-skinned and have light brown hair going to gray. I like blues, greens, browns, pink or coral, softer colors. Black is too harsh.
The party is next weekend so I will be dashing out to shop in a day or two. Please help dress me!
