A few weeks ago, I had some girlfriends over to our house, and of course, I had to give a full tour to one of them who hadn’t been over before. The tour ended in my closet (obviously!) and one of them zeroed in on a dress that was hanging there.
“What’s that for?” She asked me, obviously anticipating some super-glam event coming up on my calendar.
But… nope! Aside from a quick vacation coming up in a few weeks, Chad and I have exactly nothing big planned for the next few months. Chances are, we’ll be spending a lot of Saturday nights ordering takeout and watching the baby monitor.
On the other hand, I’m almost tempted to plan something extra-special just to wear this dress. I have some daytime events on the horizon but can’t quite bring myself to break out a ballgown in the middle of the day. But I keep finding myself scoping out possibilities for a really over-the-top night out, just an excuse to break this dress out of the closet!
I love to buy new dresses for special occasions, but I hate the pressure that comes with needing something right now, which inevitably means that I’ll spend a whole day shopping and not find anything I like. So now I make an effort to find dresses I love before I need them, so that I have something on hand in a pinch!
What about you guys? Any swanky black tie galas or chic wedding parties coming up this summer?
