What to wear when meeting your boyfriend's parents

I got inspired to do this post because it'll be meeting my boyfriend's dad soon.
I never got the chance to meet him because he lives in Germany.

I know tonnes of people get the nerves when meeting the parents for the first time. Now, I'm not much of a shy person except when it comes to parents strangely and I can get the nerves too!

Here's a little post fashion-wise on my tips of do's and don'ts:

 1. Less is not more

Yes your boyfriend might appreciate it when it's for him but please hold the flesh fest when meeting someones parents for the first time. Not only is it tacky, it's disrespectful.  

2. What not to wear? 

 Mini skirts
Daisy dukes/Shorts
Platform High heels/boots
Anything that's too tight and short
Excessive accessories 

 Even if you do wear all of the above (like I do haha).
It's best to hold back on the first meeting.

  Now don't get me wrong, I've always believed in being yourself and dressing however you like. However, it's about being dressed appropriately for the occasion in your own style. No one's advocating you to look like a nun ;)

3.  What to wear

So what do you wear?
Anything you want really as long as you don't break any of the rules above.
 Wear what you'd normally wear but if you're naturally very dressy or trendy just tone it down a little. A cardigan also always comes in handy. I think a really safe choice is a Maxi dress because it can go both ways, casual and dressy if needed. It doesn't show or cover too much and it looks good.

Let me know what you wore to meet the parents as well!

 Also, did a feature and interview on me.
