I'm feeling a little dismayed that I haven't taken part in Friend Friday this week. I just didn't have it together enough--it happens. I really liked the questions--so I'll sort of answer one. First, my outfit.
This is a Tbags designer dress that I got for my class reunion a few years ago. It was way overpriced and the quality is poor--small seam allowances, polyester material, and the hem is shorter in back. Why did I buy it then? It is the perfect shaped dress for me (empire waist), it fit well and I loved the bright print.

The dress is showing signs of wear now--white fuzz on the material--hem has gone way up in back--so I will relegate this to more casual wear. Hence the leggings. It may be a tad too long for a tunic and maybe I'll take up the hem to match the one in the back.
And on the subject of outfit planning? I like to sketch my outfits beforehand--I have been doing it my whole life--since about the 6th grade. In my head, or sometimes in my closet, I'll think up/look for new combinations to stretch my wardrobe. It helps me to remember. And as an added benefit, the sketches can be my dreamed ideal.
