Despite my recent weekly recaps, I really don't get a chance to get all gussied up very often. Though I'd much rather stick to a low maintenance daily routine as far as my look goes, when a situation presents itself to get girly- I embrace it!
Say, for example, your oldest best friend's bridal shower!
If you're thinking "That looks familiar...", you're right. I actually showed this dress off when I featured my first Stitch Fix box. But this was my first opportunity to wear it.
My sister actually snapped these of me before we left our parents house when we were hanging out inside our mom's closet... Yup. That's a closet. WHAT?! I can has that?
You may see these pictures and not think much of them, but I have to say, I felt really pretty that day. It's my opinion that ye old cheesy saying "You're never fully dressed without a smile" really has a point! When you give off a happy vibe, regardless of what you have on, you look great.
Take this picture of me with my sister and my mom-
See? Smiles. Hence, fully dressed.
To top it all off, we really had a wonderful time celebrating Jossie. We got to catch up with some friends that we grew up with and just indulge in a fun afternoon. I'm so lucky to have the kind of friends in my life that no matter how much time passes, I can always come "home" to them. And I have "homes" in friends all over the country! Those kinds of friendships are truly the greatest.
It's still so hard to believe that I'm at that stage of life where all my friends are getting married and popping out babies...
The upside to that is a whole slew of "What I Wore Wednesday" material!
That and the champagne.
