First, let me say that we have had our share of Spring showers and I am quite tired of wet feet. So when I thought about what I could wear to a Sunday afternoon baby shower, the thought of cute shoes seemed ridiculous. It was raining cats and dogs. Trying to figure out what to wear- always a challenge-I took a little inspiration from Carrie Bradshaw and little inspiration from my dear friend Kim.
During a movie marathon yesterday, I watched Sex and the City for the millionth time and felt inspired to get a little funky. Especially now that I wear a suite mon-fri. Not enough opportunities to show my true personality.Part two of my inspiration can from Kim. She suggested that I try wearing something unexpected somewhere and share the comments I receive.
Destiny…My outfit was meant to be. I have this fabulously funky pink and blue crocheted wrap and can never seem to find the right place to wear it. Perfect. Add a little hobby horse silver pendant to hold it together and a simple white shirt as the backdrop. Outfit coming together…that’s the Carrie Bradshaw part.
Now for the Kim part- The Unexpected. Tried on my suede boots…but it was raining. Tried on my ankle boots, not perfect. Tried on ballet flats- feet would get wet. Then inspiration hit…add something unexpected – my wellies! Black with fun bright polka dots. The perfect combo and my feet would stay nice and dry.
Let’s just say that I was the ONLY one at the party with wellies. Most guests came from church so they were dressed very baby shower appropriate with dresses and heels. I wish I could say that my outfit caused a buzz…but it didn’t. I definitely think I stood out…but it wasn’t shocking. Guess I’ll have to push it farther next time.
Lesson learned…dress for the weather and no one will ever question the outfit!
