But, what can I wear?


weddingIn the interim, while I await the conversion and upload of my books, the world continues to spin.

One of the advantages to the “maybe” retired life as an impoverished author is my wardrobe has immensely simplified.  Shorts and polo on most days or jeans and long-sleeve shirt on our occasional cold days (for us, that is).

Tomorrow, I am attending the wedding of my friend’s youngest daughter.  I have nothing to wear.

I still have my business suits from my days in Corporate America.  A blue pinstripe and a dark gray.  The jackets will fit but I am pretty sure the tummy no longer easily fits into that 30 waist of five years ago.  Maybe.  If I don’t eat anything at the reception.  Or inhale.

Blue pinstripe…eh, no, not for a wedding.  Dark gray…maybe, but it’s a business suit.  Wear a tie and I’ll look like I’m heading to a board meeting.  Wear it without a tie and I’ll look like I got kicked out of a board meeting.

Where’s your sports jacket, you ask?  Don’t have one; haven’t needed one.

My friend says, just wear the suit without the tie.  Blech, but what other choice is there?  I wonder.  If I do ab exercises and run for the next 18 hours, can I shave an inch off my waist for those pants?  Maybe I can just hold my breath for 3 hours or so.  Meh.

    I hope it all works out. How formal is it? Maybe some dark blue or black jeans? Nobody is going to be looking at you anyway 😉 I’m sure it will be fine. It’s all about the love <3
    Congratulations and Best Wishes to the happy couple. Have a great time!

      It will be fine. I agree no one will be looking at me. There will be a lot of people there, so I can likely find a tree or lamp to stand behind until I can politely escape into the fashion-challenged night.
