I had a baby a few months ago, and have yet to reach my pre-pregnancy size, so nothing in my closet fits. I've been needing to shop for a dressy outfit anyhow, but getting this reservation at Alinea is a huge impetus to get off my butt, try to accept that I can't wear my old clothes just yet, and actually go shopping for something new.
I've never been to a place as high-end as Alinea, though, and I have no idea what to wear. Obviously a dress would be nice, but I don't usually feel comfortable in dresses or skirts. Would a pair of black dress slacks with a silky-type top be okay, or should I try to go the skirt-or-dress route? My husband will be in a suit and tie, so I guess there's some concern that I wouldn't match him in terms of formality... not really sure what to do.
