I am Wearing the Same Outfit as My Dog

  
Confession number one- I ordered a dress for my puppy’s first birthday. I have tried hard to find people that support this decision, and I have found maybe 10% of those I mention it to think it is even remotely okay. 

Confession number two- the dress arrived today. I tried it on her and then realized that… Umm… We match. 

I’m pretty sure I just became the old lady with the cats. Except with a dog. And matching outfits. 

Do you think I should get more dogs and just become the crazy dog lady? Or try to save myself while I still can?!

What I Wore to the Wedding- Follow Up Post!

Earlier this week, I asked for help choosing an outfit. I don’t consider myself to be too great at putting clothes together, and I wanted to look nice for E’s wedding. Not helping my dilemma was the fact that my husband can’t stand my favorite dress. I received several comments about how cute a silver wrap would look with my black and white dress. I didn’t want to buy one (in my quest for minimalism, it seemed silly to buy something I would use once). I loved the idea though, so I decided to go with a brightly colored wrap instead of my original plan of a bright green cardigan.

final outfitThe outfit: Company Cocktails dress by Modcloth (sold out, but similar- affiliate link)/ Give Me Gracefulness slip (affiliate link)/ silver clutch (etsy- cannot find the shop for the life of me)/ silver sandals (kelly and katie)/ bracelets by Kate Spade, Alex and Ani, and Silver Dove Jewelry/ coat by aniina from Modcloth (sold out but sort of similar- affiliate link), teal wrap (unsure, received as a gift)

By the way, everything on Modcloth (affiliate link) is 15% off from now until Monday, 1/26 at 1:00 p.m. ET, 10:00 a.m. PT. Just use the coupon code: GOOGLY. I just ordered a box of stuff from them, so this is bad news for me 😉 I may have to buy more.

 
 
 

On the MoonE’s wedding was so pretty. I helped make some of the decorations, so it’s possible I am biased. However, how can you argue with cool props like this? I just love weddings. I try to be tough and play it cool, but I am super romantic on the inside. J and I are both sick, so we left super early. I’m sad that we missed most of the fun. E was certainly the perfect, fairy tale bride!

What’s your perfect wedding guest outfit? This was my first time wearing a fluffy slip peaking out of a dress, and I thought it was super fun.

Also, where do you stand on gifts? I have only recently figured out that many people prefer to get gifts sent ahead of time. I think this is the best solution ever. I don’t have to lug around the gift when I’m walking in heels, they don’t have as much to watch and load up, they can send thank you cards as gifts come in instead of all at once. I think everyone wins, but I might be alone in this belief. Walking in without a gift was kind of awkward, so there’s that to consider.

What To Wear To My Friend’s Wedding

outfit twoMy friend is getting married on Friday. I’m suddenly realizing that I don’t have a lot of wedding appropriate outfits. These two outfits are the best I can come up with so far. The wedding is happening at night, at a church.

Outfit #1: black Charter School Cardigan from Modcloth (affiliate link- I will earn a small percentage if you buy this), red dress from Modcloth (Ain’t We Haute Fun?- sold out), cream bag by Kate Spade (Georgina), sandals by RSVP (Emery)

I would also wear this Kate Space bracelet that I was wanting- my friend M gave it to me for my birthday!

 

 

outfit oneOutfit #2: green cardigan by 14th and Union (from Nordstrom Rack), Company Cocktails dress by Modcloth (sold out, but similar- affiliate link), silver clutch (etsy), silver sandals (kelly and katie), bracelet by Kenneth Cole

So, are either one of these outfits acceptable? I should mention that a) my husband hates the red dress and thinks it’s hideous and b) the black and white dress is a little short. I ordered this slip (affiliate link) that I’m hoping will arrive in time and look cute under the black and white dress. Otherwise maybe I would wear dark tights and black shoes?

By the way, I created these outfits with Stylebook. Prestyn Kylie at Roaring Waters wrote about it here, and I thought I would try it out. I’ll be honest, getting it set up is A LOT of work. It is pretty cool once you get everything in though!

Sometimes I hate picking out clothes. It’s just so stressful! Why can’t I be one of those girls that likes this? 🙂
