Planning Ahead

"I don't have anything to wear!"  "Does this make me look fat?"

This wasn't me, it was my husband getting dressed for his company's Christmas party.  I didn't have a problem.  I was wearing some dressy yet comfortable black slacks and a festive top.

But then I started worrying.

I don't have many dressy events in my life but a big one is coming up, Ernest's high school graduation on June 1st. Really?  It seems like just yesterday this was happening...




And all of a sudden it's almost 4 years later.

I suppose I could wear the same dress but who wants to do that?  So I poked around on the internet and found this, on sale for $35 at Coldwater Creek!


The next graduation ceremony will be outdoors at 1:00, on the grass under a canopy next to an oak tree. So I have sensible shoes, too.


I'm all set.  Now what are we going to do about my husband?

Heidi, you look very pretty in purple! That's a great family picture. You're lucky that all your "fancy" occasions are similar in temperature range --if I were to prepare, I'd need two outfits.

Beautiful dress--and a wrap is always flattering, isn't it?

Oh my gosh, that dress is FABULOUS!!!

And the first thing that came to mind is that I do believe you have a Lori necklace that might look amazing with it. Feel free to post photos of the dress and necklace together. :-)

Great idea Jen, but I have several so you all can help me choose. Pictures coming soon!
