OOTD: School Ma'am Meets Old Lady

Mr D and I went out for lunch with his family for his grandma's birthday on Saturday to a beautiful restaurant called Robinsons in Newport Pagnell. It was one of the most incredible meals I've ever had. I have smoked salmon and scallop cakes with horseradish cream to start, corn fed chicken breast with leek mousse, potato rosti and cabbage for my main and a apple, rhubarb and berry crumble for pudding. I'm dribbling just thinking about it! 

I wanted to wear something comfortable for stuffing myself purposes but also something smart-ish. I opted for a long, black skirt with a sheer overlay from Simply Be and my beautiful Clements Ribeiro for Evans cardigan. I don't wear the skirt very often because it makes me look a bit school ma'am-y but I do love the swishiness of it. 

The whole outfit does nothing for my shape and makes me look quite shapeless and frumpy but I felt good in it! I'm working a lot on being more body positive and for years I've shied away from wearing things because I didn't think they would flatter my shape even if I really loved them. There are some looks I probably won't ever go for but frumpy school ma-am meets old lady is not one of them ;)
