Today we are talking about What To Wear To Winter Baby Shower. It is cold and a wee bit depressing outside, but we have a joyous occasion to celebrate. My nephew and his wife are expecting their first child in March so today was their baby shower.
As I have been housebound up to my eyeballs in projects and decluttering, this was a great opportunity for me to dress up and get out of the house.
What To Wear To Winter Baby Shower
January can be cold and rainy or cold and dry. In Alabama, it can be both in one day. Weather can cause problems in deciding what to wear. Lucky for me, since building a wardrobe that works for my body type and my lifestyle, events like these are not a problem.
For events such as this, you can run the gamut of clothing options: dresses, skirts (with or without tights), and dress pants. It is all up to you. The most important thing is to be comfortable and feel good about what you are wearing and how you look.
I chose to go with my black v neck top and black pants as a base layer. I really wanted to wear my OTBT Jaunt open toes platform shoes. Super comfortable for standing and mingling, plus it gives me a wee bit of height. To be honest, I am “bootie out” and just did not want to wear boots. I even painted my toes a bright pink color to match my lipstick.
Following the rules that Kelly Snyder from Adore Your Wardrobe has taught me, I added great statement necklaces and bold gold hoop earrings. My drama piece that helps to draw attention up and out is this FABULOUS zebra print jacket I got this summer at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale.
The event was held at The Club in Birmingham and the room had an incredible view of the city. I was one of 11 hostesses for the event. The couple has decided to wait to find out the sex of the baby so the decor for the events was simple.
White hydrangeas with yellow roses provided the centerpieces for the tables. Each table was top with vintage heirloom linen table cloths handed down from several generations.
Due to the time of day, the event was a luncheon. The meal was simple but VERY good: quiche Lorraine, green salad with fruit and raspberry vinegarette dressing, orange rolls, tea, coffee, and mimosas. Dessert was a platter of assorted homemade cookies but to be honest, most people were full.
Even though I saw most of these women over the holidays, it was so good to get to spend some time with the women of “Team Davidson”. We had our own table and it was good to “catch up”.
Events such as these were the ones I would in the past, chose to skip. (just send a gift in the mail). The main reason being, I just did have anything to wear or did not like what I was wearing. No more!
