okay, thank you! I appreciate your help, girls! I always get frustrated dressing for weddings!
Yeah I'd say a feminine, light summery type dress would be fine, although stay away from anything in cotton or cheap jersey as those always read very casual. Wedges or flats, and a cute fitted cardigan for cover up if it gets chilly in the evning and I think you are good to go.

I really just want my period to come, at least before the boyfriend and I heard to SF next weekend.
I just noticed this morning that ASOS has been overrun with early 90's looking clothes. Love. If only I were still skinny and boob-less.
for the first time in my life, i've bought knee-high boots that aren't for a costume. i feel like most boots make my legs look chunky because they have too much hardware or that stupid scrunching thing. or they're too baggy in the ankle.
they're very basic, but they're also for some of my fall dresses for work. i got a pair at nordstroms on sale and also a last pair clearance at aldo. $50 for real dark brown leather is pretty good!
i've also been walking around my apartment today in heels to practice going back to work. my feet are already sore. i've started buying pads for the bottom of my feet to help with some of the pain. such an old lady.
i seriously wish i could afford these:
Those are fantastic. I need to go boot shopping.

Hah! I'm an old lady too when it comes to shoes. I used to wear heels every day and actually felt like my arches hurt when I wore flat shoes. Now I can barely walk in heels, and my feet almost immediately hurt.
I have a bunch of awesome boots that I never wear due to the heels. I gave my highest heeled ones away to Goodwill this week. 4" heeled boots? I am too old for that.
My current boot lust
I know, I looked and daydreamed last year. But I just don't live in a world where I can afford $200 + for a pair of boots. My shoe budget is about $200/year and I really need some new tennis shoes and dress/flats for interviews.
Wide calf, riding style, under $100. Almost 60 hits.
Although my budget might be getting better and I might be able to get myself some that I LOVE at that place where you can send your measurements. My coworker Christine is in need of a roommate. I am considering moving in with her and she only wants me to pay $450/month. I can get out of debt, buy myself a newer car and have money to travel. It sounds so awesome... But I am worried it will be horrible and ruin our friendship. I have never lived with a woman before, any advice ladies?
Measure your calves and then search Zappos by calf circumference - make sure to pick a circumference that's at least .5 in bigger than your own measurements, more if you want to wear over jeans.
Living with ladies is fine as long as everyone is relatively courteous and you have your own bedrooms. If you each have your own bathrooms too the only real point of common contention is the kitchen.
i think living with a friend is fine, so long as you are on the same page about the things that are important to the both of you. for me, that means paying bills on time without question and keeping communal areas to a certain standard of cleanliness. talk about your pet peeves before moving in to save yourself from any surprises.
Yeah, we have already talked about some of those things. My big worry is she has a lot of family and her girlfriend has a son, so their house can be pretty chaotic. Although, right now I pretty much just live in my bedroom anyway, so I don't see it being much different and I will have money. I miss having money. I am leaning more towards doing it, but all this change is happening all at once. It's kind of making me feel a little more crazy than normal.
