The outfit that Kale sees me in for the first time since he left is ALWAYS near impossible for me to find! I mean, you want to look amazing, but it still be appropriate for the event.
I find it so weird when I see people wearing formal-ish dresses to homecomings. Its almost like they were wearing their high school homecoming dresses- you know, the satin ones. They would be great for date night at a real pricey restaurant...not so great for standing around in for hours waiting for your Marine to finally be home!
1st deployment send-off was in August but it was REALLY early in the morning, we had to be there at 3am. Since the sun wasn't up yet (nor was any sane person....), it wasn't super hot and muggy yet. I was able to get away with wearing capris and a V-neck and being perfectly comfortable- not too hot, not too cold.
So, this homecoming, I feel like I'm leaning toward another dress but I'm worried about length, I feel like if I went longer then this dress, that anytime he wasn't hugging me and causing the dress to lift up a little, that it will hit me in a weird place...I want patterned again but I think I want to lean toward pink this time since I noticed I wore blue to both previous homecomings...I want to wear these cute summery wedge heels that I bought YEARS ago and don't think Ive ever worn. They are a medium tan color so I think they will go with whatever dress I get. My hair will be down, and hopefully depending on the time of homecoming, I will be able to go to the spa and get a "Wash and Style", I did that last time and it helped me stay calm and the day to go by quicker!
Part Two will be showcasing dresses that Ive found online that I think may work, or if I have time to go to an actual mall, then Ill take pictures of ones that I find that I like. I have a few months to figure it out but not too far away that I seem crazy for thinking about it already! Yay!
