So, about that jumpsuit…

I figured out why I haven’t worn a jumpsuit in more than 10 years.

So, I received the two jumpsuits (On time and in great packaging. Thank you Anthropologie!) I tried them on and hey wow…not bad! The Green one was too big so that one went back. The grey one was super comfortable and kind of fashiony without looking bizarre. Later I tried it on for Jef who said the same thing. Yay! I thought, I’ll be that cute wedding guest at last! Fashion! Yes!

And then…
Well, It was a friday and we were having a few drinks with dinner and I’ll cop to being ever so slightly faced at that point in the evening. When I went to change out of the jumpsuit I encountered a problem that reminded me why I didn’t own a jumpsuit. Being a little altered I couldn’t operate the tie closure to take the thing off! In fact, messed it up so badly that I’d tied it into a tight knot and I needed help getting it undone. And by that time I needed the bathroom, mostly from the laughing at myself. “Help me! I’m trapped in my pants!”

Let’s play the entire scene a month from now at our friend’s wedding…
Uh-huh…yeah,no. No way! I would never live that kind of story down, ever!
“Haha! Remember that time when she peed her pants at Steve and Coral’s wedding? hahaha! Why in the world would she wear such a contraption?”

So I’m sorry cute, fashiony, boho chic, jumpsuit. I think I’m going to wear what I normally wear to summer weddings. An easy sundress, sandals and kimono jacket or wrap. Boring? Maybe, But infinitely safer!

 

Summer Wedding

Three styles spring to mind on the subject of what to wear at a summer wedding. I base most of my decision on the time of day and the formality of the event. Also, are you invited to the reception as well as the ceremony?

Above are three choices based on all those considerations. Look A is a simple wrap dress and wedges, a great all purpose look that can be dressed up or down. Look B is a more upscale and fun look for an afternoon affair or garden ceremony. And finally, Look C is the formal evening, va-va-voom!, party all night long, look.
