So today I took my birthday boy (youngest son turned 5 today.. crazy!) off to go dress shopping after dropping son #1 off at summer enrichment. This of course is just what every 5 year old boy wants to do. I am a smart mother and therefore, I know how to make bribery work to my utmost advantage! "Be a good boy shopping with me and we'll go get you one more little gift." At 5 you see you can still get away with a 'little gift'.
I went to two stores, Kohl's and Dress Barn. I found one dress at the first store and many at the second, but only purchased two. Can I just say that I was actually able to fit into a size 16 in a few dresses!! (I was a size 22 back in January). "Why Diane, what pray tell will you do with 3 dresses?" you may be asking. I brought 3 home with me so I could ask my sister and husband, and now all of you which one you like best as call me silly, but I didn't feel as though my 5 year old son was the best judge as really, all he wanted me to do was get a dress already so he could get his 'little toy'.
(FYI - He did amazingly well and chose a Mickey Mouse giant coloring thing a majiggy from The Christmas Tree Shop which only set me back $3.99. So worth it!!!)
Below you will see 3 dresses. Please let me know which you think looks the best and will be most appropriate for an outdoor wedding in the middle of July (ceremony at 3 pm with reception to follow).
