I think that I’m procrasti-blogging right now: I have a long run to do this morning (along with my seemingly required stop by the lab to take care of business). More important than that, though, is the decision about WHAT TO WEAR to next weekend’s wedding. To help me in my decision-making process, I took some photos of the options. Dear readers, you are invited to weigh in on the decision. I like style advice. And I like you!
The choices fall into a two-by-three rubric: I have two dresses I’m considering and three pairs of shoes. Most of the rubricked options could work, though I don’t think I’d consider pairing the navy wrap dress with my black platform sandals. First up, have a look at the shoes.
Of these three options, the black-and-tan ones on the right are the most comfortable and casual. The silver heels are the most dressy and least comfortable. If I wore the silver heels, I think I would bring a back-up pair of something more comfortable, just in case. (I know lots of women end up barefoot at weddings, but I don’t really like being barefoot outside my home unless I’m at a beach. I’m totally skeeved out by the idea of walking around barefoot in most places.)
I will now show you several of the dress+shoe combos. Option #1: wrap dress + silver heels.
This dress is a new one from (where else?) Target. I believe it’s kneelength or thereabouts on me. I love the colors and floral pattern, and I’m looking forward to wearing it this spring. Here in Texas we’ve had a pretty cool March; for the most part, I’ve been wearing heavier clothing because it just doesn’t feel like “spring dress” weather to me. Plus I know that in August, I will be longing to wear my cold-weather clothing, so I figure I might as well enjoy the lack of heat while I can!
Next up is the second dress with two of the shoe options. I found this dress for six bucks at Plato’s Closet! I could not believe my luck—it still had the Old Navy tags on it, and it fits well. It’s a teensy bit longer than kneelength on me. Like the wrap dress above, I love the bright colors here.
Now you have an idea of what I’m considering. After looking at the photos, I’m less inclined to run out and buy new shoes this week, though I would like to buy some eventually to go with the wrap dress. Which outfit do you like best? FYI: I have plenty of options for covering my arms if it gets chilly during the festivities, like my big silver scarf, a few sweaters, and my fun pink blazer.
I thank you in advance for indulging my narcissism! And with that, I’m off to get ready for my long run in (can you believe it?) 47-degree weather. Texas, what is going on with you?!?
