I have to plan when it comes to things like this. I'm still pretty new at this whole style thing and if I don't have it all laid out, I get flustered and end up with "nothing to wear", which inevitably ruins my mood and my day. That is not something I want to happen on a day that's supposed to be so much fun! So, I'm learning from my mistakes and trying to get it all together in advance.
The realistic components:
There will be day drinking. This dress will have to be comfortable, possibly with an elastic waistband. I'm also a big fan of pockets. It's a convenience factor. The dress needs to be here, ready to wear, in a week.
The style components:
I'd like have something classy for a day in the vineyards. It can't be too dressy and it can't be too casual. I mean come on, I'm turning 25, I should at least look like a lady. Any and all spring colors are prints are welcome. April birthday means spring.
This dress has more of an athletic cut. This usually works better for me. The lace detail on the top adds some sweetness. I think I would bring a cardigan, incase I felt the open back was inappropriate for the vineyards. This is definitely something I could wear multiple times and well into summer.
III. Dee-lightful Dress:
This is cute, adorable, sweet, appropriate, and full of spring character. The problem is that it's already sold out, and it's strapless. A combination of my bad posture and small chest make strapless dresses nearly impossible to keep up on me. Someone else should wear this to their spring vineyard birthday party. Any takers?
The morning before the wine tour I will be running 8 miles. I don't know what this mean, but I know it means something.
I'm honestly not totally sold on any of these dresses for this occasion. I like them all for different reasons, and for different things, but I'm not finding what I want for my birthday vineyard celebration. Maybe I'm just putting too much pressure on it. Anyone else feel this way, like you put too much pressure on finding the perfect thing to wear to an event?
