What to Wear?

Okay, for those of you who know me in person, and know that my personal wardrobe consists of things which are “comfortable and slightly in style” and “ultra-comfortable and has never been in style because it looks so horrendous,” this post will not come as a surprise. For those of you who were operating under the theory that I am a fashionista, I sincerely apologize right now for bursting your bubble.

The fact of the matter is, my friend’s bachelorette party is this weekend, Saturday night, to be exact, and I don’t have a clue what to wear. I emailed another bridesmaid, and she gave me some ideas, but when I go shopping tomorrow afternoon, I will be flying almost completely blind. This terrifies me, but since I do love shopping, I think it will be okay.

We’re going dancing. Um, as a side note, I have no rhythm. Period. Back on topic- we’re going dancing Saturday night, and I’ve never been dancing. Yes, I made it through four and a half years of college in San Diego and never once went dancing. Not even salsa dancing, which was all the rage in my days.

Another blip on the radar (quite literally) is that there will be some not-so-wonderful weather heading our way this weekend. So an LBD is somewhat out of the question, unless sweatpants are an acceptable alternative to bare-legging it these days.

Sigh. What to wear? I suppose I’ll be spending some of Hula Girl’s nap time googling. Any suggestions?

My perfect outfit:

    I read this and automatically started singing “If You Can’t Dance” by the Spice Girls. I say that you dress as Baby Spice. Best choice when going to a party for someone, in my opinion! 😉

    No really, though. I am a big fan of short dresses that I can wear with leggings or tights. You can dress them up by wearing nylons or neutral colors on your legs, or make it fun by doing something brightly colored. And the nice thing is that you can avoid the whole bare-leg issue when its cold but still not be overheated inside when you are dancing, eating, shopping, whatever. I have bought a few colorful fun dresses at Forever 21 the last couple years. They are certainly not things I wear all the time, but they have some fun items for events like these and they are pretty reasonably priced. Case in point–I bought a PURPLE dress with big shoulder ruffles and a thick belt for probably $20-30ish. I dress it up a bit with black leggings and boots or when I am feeling bold, I wear yellow tights and a cute pair of heels.

    Happy shopping! Wish we loved closer so I could go with you!

      Thanks, Chels!
      I’ll be shopping tomorrow, so I’ll let you know what I find. I hate that you’re moving so far away. Don’t get me wrong- it’s great for you guys, but still.At least I’ll have a reason to go East some day!
