Dress for Success

Thank you all for weighing in yesterday on my outfit selection! You wer all far too kind with your comments!

Tomorrow night I will be wearing dress #1.



Even though Saturday has the potential for being a pretty awkward social event, I am looking forward to it. If anything, it will make for a good story.

In addition to attending this wedding, over the long weekend I will...
  • Hopefully go to SATC2 with a girlfriend tonight!!
  • Complete a 10 mile training run in preparation for Marathon Training. Yes, I am training for marathon training. I am lame.
  • Read while laying by the pool at my condo association and try not to think about the fun times (and my nephew's 5th birthday party) that I am missing out on at my parents' cabin!
  • Shop for more summer dresses & skirts... and maybe some fun accessories as many of you commented that I should accessorize with fun, bold, colorful accessories. Truth be told, my accessories are a bit of a yawn!

I'll be back on Tuesday to fill you in how the wedding weekend went! Have a happy weekend everyone!

What do you plan on doing over this long weekend?

PS - You can catch me over on Nola Girl's blog today - while she is in Paris, I filled in and am sharing my 5 favorites things about Paris! Hop on over there to see why I am so head-over-heels in love the City of Lights!

I'm glad you're looking forward to the event and not dreading it. You're a very cheerful person. I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend, and I can't wait to read about it.

Aww our long weekend was last weekend, and this one is full of thunderstorms and chilliness so I shall be HIBERNATING with a good book, some good TV and lots of blankets!! Yay for dress #1 - you'll look stunning (do share pics after the wedding!!), and way to go for having such an amazing attitude. Can't wait to read about your weekend! :)

I will be thinking of you tomorrow praying for a minimum of awkward moments! ;)

You are going to look gorgeous in that dress. Great choice.

Sounds like you have a fun weekend ahead of you! I have a tough time feeling too bad for you on missing the cabin. I have missed almost every fun family get together for the past 2 years. :( I've kinda just turned into that weird, random, extended relative that drops in from time-to-time! (haha! Just kidding)

Have a safe trip and I look forward to hearing about it! Love ya!

You are going to look so beautiful tomorrow, just remember that!

Thanks for giving me a reason to do some online browsing...I'm emailing you two anthro necklace links!

Can't wait for the wedding recap ;)

Marlys said...

Can't wait to see the jewelry you chose! Will you get some before you go to the wedding? Fun, fun, fun! Have a super fun weekend! We will miss you at the party but maybe your party will be "eventful"!

I wish there was another long weekend in Canada...unfortunately we have to wait another month now :(

I have no plans this weekend...so excited about that!

Hope the wedding isn't too awkward and you have fun!

Have a great trip and drive safe! I just got your email - so funny too because I was just reading your blog! It's too bad you won't be in town longer, you are sooooo close to me!
I'm sure I will be back in Minneapolis soon. You know how Lesli and I love our book signings! ;)
Have a great weekend, lady! :)

You're going to blow them away!!

I am very into turquoise accessories right now! I bought a blinging turquoise necklace when I was in Italy and I wear it to dress up EVERYTHING!

Can't wait to hear how this wedding goes, msg me ALLLLLLL the deets on Sunday OK!!! ;) ;)

Sassy Molassy said...

Nice dress selection, Lisa! I think accessories in teal, pink or yellow would look great with this dress and your features.

My weekend plans include: manfriend's bike race, 12 mi run, long bike ride, and a bbq with friends.

Have fun at the wedding!

Mandy said...

I hope you have fun Lisa! I am proud of you for going to this wedding! I am also jealous of your awesome legs and ability to wear cute summer dresses and skirts! Perhaps you'd like a summer job of being my personal trainer? ;) Have a grand time!
