Winter Wedding

As I was perusing my calender recently, it became quite clear to me: December is just a few short weeks away. And…in the month of December it just so happens that my little brother is getting married.

…that means I’m going to need a dress. The special occasion dresses I have in my closet are pretty much all for spring/summer wear, so a mid-December wedding doesn’t seem to align with them. Thankfully, the holiday dresses are popping up in stores everywhere, so I should have a bit of a selection at least. Of course, I’m having a hard time making up my mind on what I want to wear. The wedding is just a few days before Christmas, so a holiday-type dress would probably be appropriate. However, I am hemming and hawing on whether I should get a more “practical” dress instead. It really could go either way. The wedding is here in Florida, so it won’t be overly cold; I will most likely be comfortable in a knee length dress. Sleeves aren’t a necessity either, as I could pair a sleeveless dress with a nice sweater or light jacket for the ceremony (I happen to have a gorgeous gold Tahari jacket that would be perfect for the occasion if needed). So, the options abound! Right now, here is a selection of the dresses I’ve had my eyes on.
