It shouldn't be a big deal (hopefully!), but I can't get over the thought of how normal it seems. We are taking off for a weekend trip, with the girls in tow, and I am not freaking out about it. In fact, I am actually expecting (hoping) it to be rather pleasant. We plan to head out sometime during the day on Saturday to make the two-hour drive and have time to rest and get settled before the wedding. A & M will get to stay up past their bedtime to experience their first wedding and reception with family and friends. I plan to just let them sleep in bed with us, since it's just for one night. Sunday, before coming home, we plan to finally work in that trip to the zoo.
So now, the very important reason I am telling you all this, dear readers....I need wardrobe assistance!
A peek in my closet reveals mostly work clothes, with a few jeans and casual shirts thrown in here and there. I have lots of dresses, but I am not sure any of them are party-appropriate anymore. I don't want to feel like a stuffy old grown-up at an after-work function...it's a wedding! A party! It's here, at 6:30 in the evening... What does that mean for my outfit??
I love this dress from Gap (pictured above), but I don't really want to pay $70 for it if I can find something else I love equally.
This one from Target is also cute and more affordable, at $40. The slightly poufy skirt scares me a little. One reviewer on the website said she had to remove some of the underlayer to make it a bit flatter. Maybe a little pouf is good?
I can see myself in this maxi dress from Kohl's, but is it wedding attire? This ruffled sheath is cute, but it looks like something I would definitely have to try on to be sure about, and for the price ($65), I might as well go with the first one from Gap.
Obviously, I am very conflicted.
Do you have any suggestions for me? What spring fashions are you coveting right now?
