What to wear to a casual dinner or drinks?
A dinner in the neighbourhood restaurant, a few drinks with friends… You don’t really want to dress up but casual doesn’t feel right either. Maybe something in between: casual but chic, relaxed but just a bit dressy, glam but understated, modern but classic….
In a way, this is just another variation of my ‘uniform’: trousers, a t-shirt, a jacket/cardi. But instead of a gardi I’m wearing a silk cocoon cape (seen before HERE), which also provides a bit of a luxury touch to this very simple outfit.
And to avoid sparkle overload, I’m not wearing any jewellery (apart from a watch and my wedding ring, that is) but let the sequin t-shirt do the talking. Metallic flats and big sunglasses add a bit of understated glamour.

So, what do you think?
PS: I turned myself into a real diva for my new self-portrait, or two… Check out the latest Dilettante Artist post and tell me which portrait you prefer. Here’s a little preview…
