I AM GOING TO A WEDDING!
In case you didn’t know, weddings are my favorite weekend activity.
And this one is great because IT’S MY COUSIN getting married!
And I’m staying in a nice hotel!
And I’m bringing one of my sons!
You’d think, as a chronically single woman I would HATE weddings.
But you’d be wrong.
I love them!
I love seeing couples share their wedding vows with family and friends.
I love seeing the guests all dolled up in their finest.
I love the focus on love conquering all and emerging triumphant over loneliness.
It gives me hope for my own personal life.
Perhaps someday soon, I too will meet a man who captures my heart.
But until that time, I will have to be satisfied attending other people’s weddings.
I have a BEAUTIFUL red and purple maxi dress that I plan to wear to the wedding.
It’s got a plunging neckline, it’s wedding-appropriate, and I happen to love the bright vivid colors.
But what to wear with it?
And this is where I turn into crazy cousin Michelle with her unusual clothing selection and accessories.
I bought a fascinator to go with it:
If it’s good enough for the British aristocracy, then it’s good enough for me.
Of course, their hats are subdued and monochromatic while mine is colorful and wild.
But you know what?
I LOVE IT!
And I’m going to wear it.
