In my mind, only one thing looks good on me. My black Chico pants and a blousey (maternity) top.
I do not like cling. I have not worn a dress or skirt in years as my big tummy just makes this impossible. So I wear my black pants ( I have four pair) every day.
I'm okay with a uniform. Really I am. If someone hates this about me. I really can't think about it.
It is, what it is.
So as I looked thru Nordstrom and J. Jill and Gap and Talbots and Neiman Marcus online...I kept putting dresses and tops in my checkout bag...but I couldn't do it. I couldn't click 'buy'.
So Monday I ran to the local Talbots. I tried on a pretty blue top I saw on the website...and they had the pretty blue shell to go with it. I even picked out a rehearsal dinner blouse.
I bought them.
I was happy.
But I had this strange feeling. The feeling I was a Golden Girl.
Here is what I will be wearing.
I will wear black shoes.
Golden Girl or not. I will be comfortable and happy.
When Kate Middleton wore this cream coat to her final engagement before baby #3 is born.
Now, granted, Kate is pregnant.... But she looks wonderful and not at all like a Golden Girl in a polyester pant suit.
It made me so very happy.
Thanks Kate for having superb style and helping me feel better about my wedding outfit.
I'd rather look pregnant than old.
And as for Emma's dress. It came last week, all the way from China.
It fits her absolutely perfectly. I think it's gorgeous.
So, that's a big ....sigh.
Two weeks from today.
At this very moment.
For as long as they both shall live.
