I want to wear a dress or a skirt, nothing too girly but I want to look feminine. I also want to look appealing but not so good I am intimidating. I also have a fear of looking basic.

I was having a think and felt maybe smart casual is the way to go - You could wear a dress or a skirt without seeming full on for example

Try this: Pick either a top or a skirt in one solid color with no embellishments. Then pair it with either a top or a skirt that has either a really great detail like a bow, or a cool pattern/texture, or a lot of sparkle (it is your birthday!). Then you can top that with like a cute leather jacket or again with the sparkle, or of course, no topper and then just add just a little more fun detail with a funky piece of chunky jewelry, or a dangly earing and a cute shoe.
