A few weekends ago, Jim and I took a drive out to New Jersey to attend a close friends’ baby shower.
This was really our first set of friends in our circle having a baby, so I’m pretty inexperienced as far as showers go. I’ve gone to lots and lots of bridal ones but baby ones are total foreign territory to me. Getting dressed for it was kind of stressful. Will it be all crazy girlie like a bridal shower so I should wear a dress? Or is it going to be really casual? I had no clue. It was a co-ed shower which made it even more confusing.
I ended up deciding on a totally on trend black and white checkered vintage blouse I picked up a while back with a black blazer (which you can’t see) my trusty skinny jeans and heels. Yes, the neon heels are back! It’s been a while since I wore them and they were a big hit, especially with our friend’s 6 year old nieces who went crazy over the color. They were so cute when I walked in, yelling “Mommy! Her shoes are so bright like highlighters!”.
The outfit wound up working great because the blouse was formal and dressed up, but the jeans were casual so I would be good to go whatever the situation (which did end up being somewhat casual).
How did I do? Any advice for me the next baby shower I attend?
