Summer Lane, my NA Sister, has tagged me with this Stylish Blogger award. Neat — my style is seeping (what a great-but-gross-sounding verb!) from my closet to my blog space. It’s really inevitable.
Alright, so it’s really not *inevitable* but a few of you may remember back in my old days of blogging (back when I was on Blogger, not WordPress) that a large portion of my blog was about fashion. I created outfits on requests and I reviewed books and I talked about NaNo. It was a pretty good blog, but obviously not the direction I wanted to keep going.
With this blog award from Summer, I’m pretty excited to talk about something a little fashion-y today.
The rule is simple — answer this question: when was the last time I got dolled up (you know, dressed up for some formal occasion or a date or, perhaps, just because).
I know the exact date because a very close friend of Boyfriend’s (and now of me) got married — it was a truly beautiful & spectacular wedding. Seriously, books & old trunks & interesting knick-knacks & baby’s breath made up their center pieces on the tables. It was held in an old mansion in town and the style fit the venue. Absolutely breathtaking.
I wore this dress (it looks better on me than on this blonde) with some strappy, white sandals I wear pretty much every day:
And it was all very fun.
But aside from this wedding, I get really dressed up a few times a year. For weddings, and for holiday dinners, and for my anniversary, and usually Boyfriend & I will have a “fancy date night” just because we can. We both like getting dressed up, so we do it when we can.
The next rule is also simple: tag 3 more people for this award.
I’d like to see what these 3 people can come up with for this blog award tag:
L.G. Kelso @ Ramblings of a Red Head
Kenzie @ Kenzie Audacious
Sarrah @ SarrahKaliski.com
