This weekend I have a wedding reception to attend with my boyfriend. We are fairly new in our relationship and I have not met all of his family yet. We have prior commitments on Saturday therefore only allowing us to be able to attend the wedding reception for his cousin.
I don't want to look too dressy but not underdressed either. The wedding is very casual. He already told me not to wear a dress. But then I'm confused on what to wear if he doesn't want me super dressed up.
I have not met his extended family before and want to make a good impression.
Can I wear a flowy dress that is not so formal? Or do I look for some sort of skirt to wear with a dressy top? Could I wear white skinny jeans with a fancy top and heels? HELP! I am shopping tonight after work so I need to know what to look for.

Well @kheserthorpe asked some good questions.
Since it will be in the reception hall of a bowling alley I would ask some other questions such as will there be bowling afterwards? It just seems like a logical activity for the soon to be new family members to get to know each other and have fun. If so I would avoid a dress or skirt and also pack a pair of socks to wear in case you have to wear bowling shoes.
I like the idea of skinnies with heels and a cute top adding a blazer can class it up a bit more. Here are some ideas you might consider
Also high waisted shorts could work as well if they are the right ones.
