Searching, searching, searching for what to wear to The Bean's Shindig. In spare moments (riiiight), I've been checking sites for the stores I'll likely hit tomorrow night in my One Night Must Find an Outfit Trip.
Thank you to the IR for the suggestions, too. I think the dressy shorts option will just turn out too casual looking in reality - though a good idea.
Oddly enough, what I want really isn't out there - I was hoping for a fun, summery print in a non-flouncy skirt. Neither Banana nor J. Crew had what I assumed they would (though J. Crew came closer); both were waaaay too businesslike for a 1-year-old's birthday party.
The most likely candidate, it seems? What is now becoming my standby (and I cringe as I type): Ann. Ann Taylor - and AT Loft. The three choices at left are all options - though the orange circles probably is too dressy - front runner is the madras.
