Gussied

I had a hard time getting ready for the Victorian Tea that hubby and I attended yesterday. Now when I put makeup on, I really feel like I'm over doing it. I've enjoyed seeing how comfortable you all have been sharing your clean faces in the Bloggers Without Makeup contest. I truly thought it would be really hard to get participants!

And you heard that right- hubby and I had to attend a Victorian Tea for a charity. I know- who goes to those things? Apparently people like us. For hubby's work.

And when he told me about it
, at first I thought it was weird that he, being a man, would be going to such a thing. Isn't it usually just for women, in hats and gloves eating lemon bars? And what if they talk about women-stuff? You know, women stuff. He called to make sure and it turned out men were indeed allowed to attend.

So another dressed up occasion we were off to. It was a beautiful day. And the best part was my new shoes. You couldn't see them in our picture above and I can't not take a picture of these shoes. The dress may look familiar (an old DKNY Marshall's fave) but the shoes are new (and are of course from Marshall's.) Where else can you get a fabulous pair of Franco Sartos like these for $20?!

  13. It is always nice to take a break from the mommy casual! We have so few pics these days of myself or my husband b/c we are not always photo ready when the kids are! You have to take their pics right away or it is not going to happen! We were able to get away to a retreat recently, it was fun but not a date! We did manage to take a pic together (although, I feel a little liberated too now from makeup, due to the contest)! haha :o) Oh yeah, great shoes!

  22. I love that you guys dress up so much for fancy things like teas and galas. You are so stylish. It's inspiring. And that you shop at Marshall's and find so many good things. That place exhausts me- but I may give it another try because of you. :)
