I'm usually really bad about over-packing for trips. I bring clothing for every possible occasion. However, I've been trying to get better about this and practiced just taking what I needed with minimal "what if" additions. We were only going to be there for two full days and the last day would be a long travel day so I needed something cute but comfy to ride around in the car all day.
I finally got to wear my favorite dress ever to Renegade on Saturday.
Dress: ASOS Curve
Tights: We Love Colors
Shoes: Dollhouse (from a pre-vacation Ross trip)
Swollen Ankles: c/o a fall during last year's Austin trip that has forever jacked up my ability to have cute ankles.
I was really nervous about wearing this dress. It's really short. Way shorter than I ever wear because of my hand-me-down thunder thighs. I have worn a thicker, darker, pair of leggings with it before and felt a little more comfortable, but these mint tights were cuter. I could never wear this in Oklahoma because of the wind and I may or may not have flashed a few passersby after taking this photo because of that very reason. haha!I felt great in this outfit and got about a million compliments on it at Renegade, which made me feel much more confident about it.
My nails that day were also pretty cute:
I wore a different dress on Sunday and didn't even think about taking a picture of it because it's a million years old. Still cute though. I just wasn't as excited about it I guess. :)
I have a secret to tell you. I wore this next outfit EVERY evening while we were in Austin. After very hot and humid days in cute dresses, I didn't want to have anything to do with them in the evening when we went out. So I just kept putting this outfit on because it worked for me Friday night.
And because I entitled this post "what we wore"...
I often take photos of Sheldon to get my camera settings right before he takes my picture. This one made me laugh because he looks like a catalog model so I had to share it. This is Sheldon's summer uniform, which is a lot like my uniform; Tee Fury Shirt (this one is the Bluth Family Crest), shorts, and chucks.
Oh, and this is what I wore on our drive home.
The dress is a thrifted mumu with a crocheted neckline and peasant-type sleeves. I wear it with leggings because it's really thin and with a belt because it looks like a sack otherwise. This is my perfect traveling outfit. Stretchy pants so I can sit in any position comfortably and a flowy dress or top. I'm also partial to maxi dresses for traveling.
I realized yesterday that I didn't share our Renegade purchases so expect a post about that sometime this week. We're missing a couple of them so I'm going to have to do a house search before that happens. :)
