What to wear?

Now that I have the date set for my art show I must think about the most important* thing… WHAT should I wear?

I’ll never get to walk down a red carpet, have another wedding, or go to prom again (at least I’m assuming I won’t…you never know.) So now’s my chance to pull out all the stops, wear whatever says “ME!” and encompasses my art. Someone online said I should wear a little black dress..If it comes to that you’ll know it’s because my body has more of an “I think we should look eight months pregnant!” idea than my brain’s “let’s be a runway model in a garden” idea. The goal is to look as much like FLORA FORAGER as possible, whoever she is.

Here are some fun things I found while perusing the botanical underbelly of the womens dress industry.

This “I’m going to paint botanical prints by a pond” dress…

This Briar Rose dress that would have me hearing Flora’s voice say “make it pink!” in my head all night.


This “I always wanted to be Miss Frizzle when I grew up” star gazing dress…


This “Someday I’ll go to one of the monarch migration spots but for now they can migrate to ME” dress…

This one I actually bought online and I wish so badly it looked as good on me as it does on this model…


This “I never got to be a flower girl so I must indulge my inner child” dress…


The Free People Magic Garden Party dress that Beau bought for me for my birthday last year, was the wrong size, and then sold out. :(

No matter what I end up looking like, I hope I feel at ease. *Because I know it’s not really important at all….

(But what shoes should I wear?!)

One thought on “What to wear?

  1. Beth these dresses are all so beautiful, I think I like the Flower Girl dress the most for you , then the Botanical prints by the pond dress, and followed by the lovely Pink Briar Rose dress…and the Miss Frizzle dress should be for another day. Have fun , and wear what makes you feel GOOD !!
