Last Saturday, I had to speak at an event for the youth at the church we attend. It was one of those Saturday afternoon activities where it could be casual, but might be Sunday dress, but you’re not sure and you don’t want to over dress so you have to find that outfit that is dressy but is also casual enough that no one will notice you overdressed. No one wants to be that person that’s underdressed, or the one who is over dressed, but just in case it is dressy, I always play it safe and err on the side of dressy. Does that make sense? haha I tend to wear skirts and dresses everyday anyways and it’s more embarrassing to be under-dressed than it is to be overdressed.
So this was the outfit I came up with. It’s dressy enough to speak at church to a youth group, but casual enough to be an everyday outfit. Adding a denim jacket and boots definitely dresses it down. If you wanted to make it less causal, swap out the boots for heels, and the jacket for a nice cardigan.

And, in case you’re curious, it did end up being casual, but I think my outfit was great for being the speaker. Not too casual, and not too dressy either!
