My daughter and I are going to my boyfriend's moms for Thanksgiving. We've never met her so we want to make a good impression. I'm use to dressing up in really elaborate dresses in the past bc my ex's family was all about the holidays. My current boyfriend is not much one for dressing up but he always ends up wearing something presentable. I just don't want to over dress or under dress seeing as this will be the first impression his mom gets of me plus I don't want to make my boyfriend look under dressed or me not looking good enough so he is embarrassed not that he ever would be. Then again my purple hair won't help my impression lol. Anyway what do I wear and what do I dress my daughter in?

It sounds like your boyfriend comes from a family where being presentable is more important than dressing up. I would approach it to look smart everyday casual - Be yourself but make enough of an effort to be presentable. You and your daughter want to feel comfortable and happy in whatever you wear, this will help give a true impression of yourselves. Creating impressions is good but making a false one is awkward because when eventually your true self comes out it is a surprise to people, is it not better to show your true self and build on that impression.0

Formal casual would be good in my opinion. Maybe like a sweater dress or a nice shirt with a skirt or something. Something nice and fall-y that makes you look presentable but will also keep you warm. How old is your daughter? I would say either a nice dress or a nice sweater with jeans could work.0
