Every time we book a vacation I worry about what we are going to pack and what clothes I am going to wear. Especially when it's an adult only vacation. I usually look at this time as me being able to wear something a little bolder. Something that I don't have to worry about what it will look like when kids are pulling on it or spilling on it.
Since I made a pact with myself this year to not buy new clothing, it's time to revamp some clothing for our upcoming "We are turning 40 - Napa Valley - BottleRock Festival Vacation". While trying to get some inspiration pictures for our vacation I made the fatal flaw of searching festival outfits. Being that I'm turning 40 this year, I should probably wear a little more clothing than your typical festival goer.
So the first dress up in my closet is one we will call - The Pilgrim Dress. This one was named and nominated by Jesse. I actually don't mind it as is. I think it's main problem is that there is a lot of fabric and it kind of swallows my smaller statue.
I chopped off the length, neckline and sleeves of the dress. I then hemmed them all up and here was the result.
I'm trying to figure out if I can pull off the hat. It seems practical for a summer festival in California....I just don't know. Also full disclosure, the filter on the pictures was used so that I wouldn't have to put on makeup and because I didn't realize till afterwards that the mirror was all dusty.
Here is one last look, side by side of the before and after.
