One of the fun parts of traveling for a charity event like The Overnight is the chance to attend special receptions and dress up a bit. I don’t normally get a chance to wear my beloved dresses too often, racing around after my 3- and 5-year-olds all day. So I was happy to be invited to a VIP Reception for Overnight Fundraisers who reached a goal of over $2,000. (I’m at $3,621 as of today! Yay! By the way,you can still donate HERE.)
A quick email from the event planner revealed that it wasn’t a super dressy event. In fact, some people attend in jeans. So I decided to wear a lovely colorful cotton wrap dress from H&M. Knowing that I MUST baby my feet the day before a BIG 16-mile walk, I decided against heals. You guys helped me choose between adorable and super comfy Crocs Adrina Flats and these awesome black wrap sandals from ZIGIsoho. I loved them both so much, but in the end, decided on the sandals. Please excuse the grainy iPhone pics!
Here’s the full effect, flat ironed hair and all! (It was certainly hot and humid in DC this weekend.)
Girls Night Out time! A little night on the town with your girlfriends is super-good self care.
