"Add to Cart and Check Out"

Anthony is at work right now finishing up some final touches on his project. His final Masters Project is due in 5 hours. Then ladies and gentlemen all he will have to do is put together a book regarding this final project and he is finished, forever. Tuesday he presents his project to 3 judges and Friday he presents to the public. Then he will never step foot in school until Graduation Day on May 7th. It seems so surreal. You would think that I would be pondering our futures out. It feels as if we are going to get married again. We are starting fresh. But nope, I just am wondering what to wear to his graduation.

Because I have lost 25 pounds things aren't fitting as they use to. Which hallelujah it's about time. I was thinking of a dress, but I know that we will be busy that whole day with family things so maybe just something comfy and classy. But a dress is so fun too though. Help me decide which outfit to choose.


OUTFIT #1

I love the electric blue and how comfy the pants look. Also this would be a good investment. If/when I get a receptionist job I can wear it to work.

This speaks to me. It says "Lindsey is mature and supports her husband."

Accessories

I want all the accessories to stay black so the top pops. Yes, I have those boots, they are lovely.


OUTFIT #2

Accessories

Pros Vs Cons

Pro: I already have this dress, its beautiful and I have only worn it once, so it's new looking.

Con: It is WAY too long, it should hit above the kneecaps on me it hits about 5 inches under. I will need to get it adjusted. It would look adorable with a pink flowered headband and pink heels. This dress is fun to wear because it's all about the accessories that you pair with it. It would be adorable with a hot pink or green too! Headbands are from Etsy shop: Bebecha. (I must have them)

Because this event is 5 years in the making it clearly is important to me. I made a voting poll on my blog. Please vote. I would love to know. Also, if you are as bored as me, please feel free to create a 3rd outfit. Thanks everyone! Hopefully you are having a wonderful day!

My vote is outfit number 2. I love that dress and I love the pink accents! But knowing you, you will look amazing in whatever you choose to wear.

Congrats on the 25lbs loss!!! Wonderful! I LOVE the dress. It is so cute. But I know I could never be in a dress all day long so I like the sound and look of #1 also.

I am in LOVE with the black dress!! It's so cute! Plus pink looks great with black! :) Congrats on loosing 25 pounds! That's way awesome!! Do you remember the movie babes in toyland? (I think that's what it was called?) I just remember always watching that at your house! :)

I like them both. As we both know already, I dig blue colors and not pinks. But, you'd look good in either or......I am leaning toward the blue outfit. That's just me though. For graduation I had to wear a dress and everyone else did too so the dress may be the way to go since its dresser but comfy looking too.

I just realized that I am no help at all with this decision. Let me re-phrase this. Do #2, I think a dress would be better for graduation. Perhaps get the blue outfit for work or even the party!? Or just to have because its cute and because you can wear it year round.

Did this help a little bit?

Shelayna,

The Dress is from Shabbyapple.com. They have the cutest dresses ever. I own two of them but alas, I have stubby legs so they never fit right on me, I need to get both of them adjusted.

Both outfits are way cute. It was hard to pick. Though I'd go with #1 cause it will be more comfortable, especially if you end up running around doing last min. party prep.
