Oh what to wear.

Yesterday was such a fun day. 

I had to go to Rochester, to pick up my engagement ring, at some point I smacked it on something and cracked the setting.  We were living in Rochester when we got married, so we bought our rings there, which made sense, but now I have to make the drive out there from Syracuse if I need something done to them.

There's a great museum in Rochester, the Strong National Museum of Play, and we've only been a couple of times, I figured it would be quiet on a Thursday, before school is out, so I let Luke play hookey, and off we went.   We were there for over three hours, and had a blast, here are the kiddos on the Sesame Street exhibit:




Mike and I have a date night planned for Saturday, which I'm excited for, we usually only have these nights to celebrate our birthdays and Anniversary.  Mike is a huge fan of Groupon, at one point it was getting a bit extreme, like the time he bought an assortment of cookies for $17 that normally went for $45....but they were really good cookies.

At any rate, we're going down to Skaneateles Lake, which is about 40 minutes from here, but it's such a pretty lakeside town, that it makes you feel like you're much farther from home.  Mike scored a groupon to Mirbeau, we've never been, and I'm debating on what to wear.  I don't think I can get away with wearing jeans, or my pink Boilermaker sweatpants. 

These are my choices:


                 I love this blue dress, but the fabric has a shimmer to it, so it might be too dressy:





Eliza wanted to take my picture, so the rest of these were taken by my four year old:


This one might work, it's more of a summer night by the lake type dress





This wrap dress is super comfy, but the black might be better suited for winter:






Or I could bag the whole dress idea, and go with black pants and a cute top:







Well, what's your vote?!?!?! 


HAPPY WEEKEND!

They all look cute - seriously!!! I think the 2nd dress is super cute or the pants and shirt with some cute sandals. AND I think you have a great 4 year old photog there as well.

The play museum looks AWESOME - I want my pix taken on the sesame street stairs!!!!!

Have a wonderful date!!!!

Blue dress. I would suggest a shawl in case it is cool, unless you wear sleeves.

Mirbeau is a wonderful place. Food is delish! Enjoy!!

You look fantastic in #1, but #2 looks like summer to me.

Always better to risk being too dressy. I say go with the shimmery one.

Heather said...

You look fabulous in #1! I'm jealous...you have date night and you're going to such a beautiful place, I looked at the website and it looks amazing there! I'm sure you guys will have a nice time.

J said...

I like the first dress! It looks great on you! Tough choice though! I always have trouble picking out outfits to wear! Have a great weekend!

The Green Girl said...

I like the 'summer night by the lake type dress'!

misszippy said...

I'd go with the second dress...it has summer written all over it! Any way you go, you'll look great.

On your Syracuse question--one of my good friends grew up there, so I do get the 411 from her now and again!

Mighty M said...

I like the first two dresses the best. What fun - enjoy!!

The museum looks like a great place too. :)

My vote is for summer by the lake dress! Have a blast!!!

I'd definitely go with option #2.

Love the Strong Museum - we have family in Rochester and always take my boys when we're there visiting.

kristen said...

BLUE SHIMMER DRESS! Have fun! Are you guys staying the night?

Kelly said...

#1 for sure!! You look great, btw.

Black Knight said...

The Black Knight votes .... the black!
Have a wonderful date.

Anne said...

#2, #1 and #4 are all great options for summer. The black dress is great, but I agree, more for fall and winter. :)

Amy said...

#1 or #2 or if it's cool/rainy, #3! Have fun!!

Jill said...

By now you're already out on date night (heck, you may be even home already...having some fun at home ;)) but I hope you went with #1. :)

Tortuga_Runner said...

I'm with Jill, I am late to the party, but hope you wore the first dress.

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

I hope you wore option 1 but twinsie, we both now you will look HAWT in any of the above!!!

Caratunk Girl said...

I always ditch the dress idea if I can. So I vote for the last one :)
