It's been awhile since I've been to a wedding. In October, we are going to two weddings within a week of each other!! Both are relatively formal, so my usual mom "uniform" of shorts/capris/jeans and t-shirts/sweatshirts with tennis shoes probably won't cut it :) About a week or so ago, I went looking for a dress. After trying a bunch of dresses on, I came home kind of bummed and deflated. I was beginning to think I might have to wear my shorts!! After a quick look in my closet, it hit me that I already had a dress that would be suitable for both weddings. I have had this particular dress since before Lauren was born.
I guess you can say I have definitely gotten my money's worth out of this dress. I'm pretty sure I paid less than $100.00 for it originally. This dress must have some magical powers, because I have worn it when I was thinner than I am now and when I was heavier than I am now. I think I even wore it when I was pregnant with one or both of my kids. I was pointing the dress out to the hubby a few days ago and telling him it was my "go-to" dress. He was like, "what does that mean??" I had to explain it to him that it's a dress that never goes out of style, it ALWAYS fits and I can wear it for just about any formal event. Men have it easier I think than women. My husband has a job where he has to wear a suit or tie at least a few times a week. The other days of the week he has to wear a button down shirt and slacks. His hardest decision with what to wear to the weddings will be which tie should he wear :) With women, you have to worry about the pantyhose, shoes, purse, etc. Now that I have the dress figured out, I need to go dig around under my bed, find my high heeled shoes and brush the inch of dust off of them!
