Retirement Party Couture

Dear Miss Manners,

I've been invited to my mother's cousin's husband's (my cousin twice removed?) retirement party. I'm wondering what I should wear. It's being held at a private catholic high school on a Saturday night. My husband is not able to attend, so I will be there with my two children ages 2 and 5 months. Thoughts?

Dear Sarah,

If you are taking to small children with you, please dress comfortably. Wearing slacks and low heeled shoes are appropriate. Unless this is a formal affair, you will look great and be able to handle the kids with ease!
