ETA: I finally settled on the reddish orange dress with my flatform sandals & chocolate rainbow earrings (attached). Thank you so much for everyone's suggestions!


Just realised how sticky this situation is to dress for...

So my ex-boss is leaving HK with a low-key bar drop-in for her farewell do this Friday. She's fairly laid-back, was at my wedding. Sounds casual, right?

Well, she's friends with my current boss (for whom I'm working part-time), & also a potential future boss (have spoken about possible vacancies over the phone but have not yet met), who will both also be there. Oh, & other colleagues/ acquaintances from my soon-to-be-ex workplace (ex-boss works at the same centre where I'm currently wrapping up my contract) will likely also be dropping in at some point (don't know when).

What on earth do I wear?! I don't want to be too stodgy at a bar, but at the same time I also don't want to give the wrong impression to a potential employer. I was thinking of perhaps wearing my satin cargo pants, but with what? I do also need to be somewhat practical (possibility of both rain & high humidity, plus uphill urban walking)...

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!
