In about a month Rob and I are headed to Chicago for the wedding of Emily, my roommate from college. It will be the first time we have both left Sophia AND Samuel overnight. It will, actually, only be the second time we have both left Sophia overnight. And we all know how THAT turned out for us –Exhibit 1 and almost 9 months later – Exhibit 2.
Certain, eh-hem, precautions have been taken to prevent such a happy and glorious surprise from side swiping us this time around and we are REALLY looking forward to a fun, relaxing, very quick weekend away.
In preparation, I have hit the online retailers to look for an appropriate dress to wear to the wedding. My dress size is a bit bigger now and my body is shaped differently. Thanks to my friend Amy’s Fit to Flatter series it was a bit easier to narrow down possible choices.
In the end I ordered this:Applique Dress from Boden.
I think (hope) it’ll look cute on, because I HATE shopping in actual brick and mortar stores.
Using Amy’s terminology – I’m top heavy and proportional. I think the scoop neck will work nicely and the applique will draw the eye down a bit. I may have to get it hemmed a bit as I would like it to fall just above my knee. To think I could wear this dress for a whole day and evening and not even have to worry once about getting any goopy kid crap all over it!
Now, am I crazy enough to knit something to wear with it? In the cold air conditioning?
