I posted a couple of weeks ago about what to wear to my friend Joy’s wedding: four possible dresses to choose from, and you all helped me out with your feedback.
I hadn’t counted on getting the flu (like anyone ever schedules the flu, doh). It definitely kept my interest in shopping waaaay down. For a couple of days, I didn’t change out of assorted black tees and a sweat-skirt.
Online shopping wasn’t going to make the deadline either. So as the day approached, I had to explore my closet for a dress. Reminding myself that no one other that my husband would notice what I was wearing (and even he doesn’t always pay attention), I decided neat, clean, covered, and happy was going to suffice.
So I chose a pretty floral dress. I’ve worn it to work several times, the way you see it here below. For the wedding, I switched to a self-belt and brown suede open-toe pumps (We didn’t get any worthy pics at the wedding, as the rains kept falling and it was dark-ish). I carried a cute floral clutch and wore dangly gold earrings.
I was under-dressed compared to the wedding couple and wedding party, but absolutely fine for blending in, having a blast, and feeling comfortable. Oh, Joy walked down the (outdoor) aisle to the tune “Sea of Love” – perfect!
Thanks for all your good advice, and sorry to disappoint with an oldie-but-goodie dress. More parties are ahead, I’m sure, and this red dress is still the total bomb.
