Something old, something new.. nothing blue

Something old, something new.. nothing blue

Hey baby cakes,

What’s poppin’ with all y’all? Not much is happening with me if you were wondering.. still just living my last week as a young lady unable to gamble or attend strip clubs legally (which I don’t plan to do often when I am legal, just saying). But ya know in the interim I still have blogposts to write, food to eat, homework to do and clothes to buy. So really that was just a list of ways I am telling you I have nothing important to do besides live. Sidenote: please no one ever let me take 3 summer classes again. K thanks.

Now there is a big ol’ occasion coming up which I spend days upon days searching for outfits for. And once again, the shopping isn’t even for me since I am already fully prepared to strut my stuff. But ya know, ya girl E-dawg is still in need of an outfit to wear to a wedding we will be attending on the 30th. Soooooo needless to say I scour bajillions of pages of shopping sites on the daily just so my mother dearest doesn’t show up in her skivvies (I doubt she would do this).

And since maybe some of you trusty readers out there are also in need of something to wear to a wedding, I am here to give you volume #2 of wedding guest outfit choices. Unless you want to be the ‘something old’ at the wedding, ditch the mumu you wore to your sister’s boyfriend’s mom’s wedding 10 years ago and try one of my cutie pie picks.. I swear you won’t be disappointed. OKKKK, here we go, enjoy. 🙂

So we all know you must obvi follow the normal rules.. no white, nothing too revealing, but still be super cute, and I think I have you covered. 🙂 Hopefully you have found everything you ever need now.

All dressed up and nowhere to go

All dressed up and nowhere to go

Helloooo lovely people,

Happy Tuesday, February 20th! No special day in general really, I just felt like documenting the date. But there are a few things about this date that I would like to point out: it is indeed NOT Christmas Day, so I am not sure why there is still snow on the ground today, it is literally probably the only day of the year that doesn’t have a made-up holiday, and last but not least, it is the friendly reminder that wedding season is coming up and you have nothing to wear.

The middle of March-September is the perfect time for engaged couples to finally tie the knot, ask for your gifts and money, and is officially the most expensive time during the year to have a wedding.. but hey, it’s your dream wedding not mine. If you were previously unaware that you are going to be invited to many weddings in the upcoming months, now you know. But don’t fret, the newlyweds really don’t want to pay for your meal, so sending a gift is more than sufficient. However if you are related to the person or like total BFF’s it is probably important that you attend, so I am going to give you some ideas of what to wear to these wedding extravaganzas.

Now I am still a youngin, so most of my friends are currently planning Spring Break trips to Cabo, not weddings.. but my inspiration for this post came from watching my mother struggle to find a dress to wear to an upcoming wedding (she also can’t decide on a damn rug for the living room, but I have given up helping her there). It is not easy finding an outfit to wear to a wedding since it cant be white, too tight, too low cut, too revealing, too bright, too fancy, or really anything that would show up the bride. But I have done some intense digging to bring you the best options for spring and summer weddings. 🙂

I hope you find the perfect wedding guest outfit.. because you don’t want to be the one that everyone whispers about when you shimmy a little too much out of that dress. I also hope you do the Cha Cha Slide countless times along with the Cupid Shuffle, because we all know no wedding is ever complete without those things. Until Thursday <3
