What I Wore: Bridal Shower Style

It’s a dangerous feeling to wear white when you’re accident-prone and have a tendency to spill on yourself. The running joke in my family is that I’m 25 and need to invest in a bib. So when my sister informed me that I needed a white dress to wear to my bridal shower, I internally panicked.

“But we’re drinking TEA! I’m going to SLOSH on myself!” I moaned. (Because when you’re Marge, you drink a lot of tea, and people like throw tea parties for you—this ain’t my first rodeo.)

But I did indeed find a dress (secondhand, of course) for my tea party bridal bruncheon (I’m as surprised as you are that that’s a word—and I’m an editor.), and I’m pretty smitten with it—so much that I will probably end up wearing it more than once. (Gasp!)

The invites my sister sent out  commanded highly encouraged big hats and pearls. Like I needed an excuse.

My hat is a clearance sunhat from target, purchased for about $10, that I dressed up with some ribbon I had on hand for wedding crafts. And I added some clip-on flowers that I had stuffed in a drawer.

For shoes I wore my Modcloth heels for the wedding so that I could break them in a little. I added some pearl earrings, a necklace, and a swipe of red lipstick, and was good to go!

Overall, it was an excellent party and I had a lot of fun dressing up. Thanks, Jackie, for throwing it for me! ❤️
