This weekend we took a quick trip up to Dallas for one of my college friend's wedding. My husband called it a "vacation" to which I expressed my doubts on what he considers a vacation since it would hardly fall into my category of one....but he then he explained that any time away from all 4 kids can be considered a vacation. Touche.
It was a beautiful wedding with such a lovely couple, to which we felt so honored to attend. Here's a few snapshots from the reception with my dear friends and hubby. I just love these girls!
(Hmmm, I'm starting to see a trend...maybe I need to change up my pose!)
In deciding what to wear and after determining I didn't have anything suitable in my own closet, I tried two different dresses at Target that ended up not working out. And I didn't have time (or the funds) to shop properly at places that I knew I'd find something. So as it turns out, I actually did wear pieces I've had for a long time and have worn many occasions. My trusty polka dot blazer, which has made quite a few appearances here on the blog. And a floral dress, that's been seen around these parts, too. Even though I felt like I wore an outfit that I "always wear", I knew that it worked....even though I felt annoyed about it.
(Oh and please excuse the iPhone pics...I was gonna whip out my big camera with all those wedding photogs around, but that would have been awkward, not to mentione a few ticks short of crazy wedding attendee trying to pose as a photographer.)
When attending an event like this, we want to look your best no doubt.
Have you had experiences where you just have to settle and go with a proven (or old) style that works for you....even it you've worn it a million times?
How do you feel about it?
Sure, we'd all love to shop for a new outfit anytime we have somewhere to go, but sometimes it just doesn't happen....whether it's not in our budget, or we don't have time, or maybe we're just are in a style funk and can't find anything suitable. I been there. But I've decided that it just doesn't matter. Yes, what you wear affects how you feel, but when circumstances don't allow for new clothes, you just have to put your big girl panties on, give yourself a pep talk, and realize that your appearance doesn't define you.
*Also, tomorrow I have an exciting giveaway for you!!! Let's just say it has to do with what you wear at the beach/pool/lounge chair....and it's exactly like the one I own and love! See you tomorrow friends!
