The photo above is of a recent Meet & Greet event at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs CO.
This event was held outdoors on a large elevated patio during a somewhat windy day (as it often is there).
A BETTER CHOICE:
You can see both of our ladies' hair blowing in the picture, and that it is indeed quite breezy.
They are both dressed nicely, but pants in this case is a much better choice than an actual dress.
WHEN IT'S WINDY!
The reason is obvious as the wind will blow the full skirt of a dress all around, and probably not as you would want.
The pants in this case appear to be in a comfortable and somewhat casual style but also elevated with a nice embroidered design down the sides.
Jeans would have been inappropriate at this event, but the pants outfit here is just right paired with a black cap sleeve tee to tie in with the black embroidery.
She is also wearing flat semi-dressy black sandals with some shine to them (it was a summer evening event) and a small silk neck scarf, further elevating her style.
