Its going to be hot so I need lightweight, comfortable but not casual clothes.
I'm 63 years old,  5'2", size 20 so I need clothes which look professional but not too fitted......
(I'm going to feel inadequate anyway - as the women colleagues I'll be meeting with are much younger, taller, slimmer, expensively dressed!)
Any suggestions gratefully received.

I'm a 60-year-old tall plus size woman. I'm taller and larger than any of my co-workers. There is no missing me in a crowd.  I've learned that it is important to feel comfortable with what I am wearing. When it is hot, I go for a cap sleeve top and a long flared skirt. Ponte knit is my best friend for meetings. Louise Cutting Relax A Little is my go-to pattern for a long skirt. I love slingback shoes for warm weather and you can find them with different heel heights. I wear cool jewelry and a nice handbag. Look at Pinterest for some ideas.
