I had a mother-daughter weekend in the DC area. A cousin got married and Mom asked me to be her date. Dad is doing pretty well, but his health ups and downs mean he’s less likely to enjoy all of the standing around a wedding reception can entail, or a four-hour car ride.
I was [mostly] happy to step in, for the chance to see relatives and to try to see old friends in DC, time permitting.
The wedding was lovely.
And the trip was a success because Mom and I didn’t kill each other.
We also went shopping. It was her pre-birthday treat to me.
I got this dress.
One thing I tried on was close-to-awesome, but ultimately not right for me. But you should totally buy this BCBG Victorya jumpsuit.
I have a weird waist (seriously, the shortest waist to hip measurement) so the jumpsuit gave me an unfortunate FUPA. Mom didn’t see it but my fussing made her say “don’t buy it.”
Amazon has deals on some additional BCBG jumpsuits here.
How was your weekend?
Somewhat related, I love the pic of my mom in this post.
