What I'm Wearing to the Royal Wedding

I haven't posted much about the Royal Wedding, but, like many of you, I have been planning my outfit for ages.

Does one wear traditional wedding attire for an 11 am wedding? Pastels? Hats?

What about jewelry? Pearls? Diamonds?

Updo? Curly hair? Geesh, the OPTIONS!

I feel so out of touch with wedding etiquette.

No worries. I've thought it alllll out for you.

Seeing as it will be 4 am when the wedding coverage starts here in Indiana.... one has to be aware of the circumstances of these outfits.

As in, I will be rolling directly from my bed to the couch in this outfit. Get excited.

Option #1: Victoria's Secret gray/white robe, navy sweatpants.

Nice, but seems to be a bit lacking in color/jazz.

Outfit #2: Victoria's Secret PINK robe, formerly condemned to the trash pile. It just seems to keep hanging around.

The color of this one is great, although this bad boy is extremely worn. It's seen me through breakups and breakdowns and really needs to go live in the trash pile.

Option #3: Leopard jersey robe, gifted to me by my BFF for my birthday.
Meow! Although this seems to highlight the guitar on my fav t-shirt rather unflatteringly. *Sigh* Nothing's ever perfect.

In all my haste to put together the perfect outfit, I had completely forgotten several things. Jewelry, hats, lip color.

And then again.... shouldn't I be dressing for my favorite member of the royal wedding?

I mean, he's still single and he's.... what, 4th in line for the throne? (Pffft, let's forget about that pesky Chelsy Davy.)

Outfit #4: Add in a hat, jewelry, some color, and the perfect spandex yoga pants.

Much better.

Let the countdown begin.... T-Minus 12 hours...

Who's going to be chatting it out with me on twitter at 4 am?? Hmm?

You are adorable! And option 4, obviously. Hats are a must!

Aly said...

You are hysterical! I'll be watching, but probably not till 6am when the ceremony starts. 4am is just too early for me- but I will be DVR'ing! Can't wait to see her dress!!

I almost wish I had cable so I can watch, but I don't want to get up that early. I did hear that the wedding will be available later on iTunes, so I'll just buy it.

I was just thinking you needed a big hat to go with your leopard jersey robe! You look perfect! Harry would swoon, I'm sure. Oh and he is 3rd in maybe you could be queen!

Candace said...

Oh my gosh thank you for making me laugh out loud. This post is awesome. I'd go with the leopard. And Harry? He is my favorite too. I'll fight ya for him:)

Kristen said...

I just found your blog, so cute and I would go with number 4. I will be watching with a large cup of coffee in one hand and a mimosa in the other:) I have read all the outlander book (quite possibly 3 or 4 times) and love them. Your lucky that they are all out, when I read them the first time I would stay up until 4 or 5 in the morning finishing the book and then would have to wait 2 years for the next one to come out. Happy reading they get really good in the last 2 books.

California Wife said...

Haha, I love it! You're too cute!

I'm planning on going to bed early, then waking up at 1 a.m. to watch it live here before going back to bed. I'm sure I'll be tweeting all about it!

Ashley said...
