OH HEY, FRIDAY! I NEED YOUR OPINION

first things first - friends...we are on night two of the gals sleeping in the same room. and true to sleep training...night one took the longest, and night two took long...but not as long. soon we'll be in a smooth bedtime routine that's hugs, kisses, stories, songs and out...in less than 10 minutes. (knocking on wood so hard right now.)

i'm thrilled for this moment as i feel like it's going to open up all sorts of possibilities.

no longer will we have to have the girls in two separate rooms when we travel and no more pack 'n play to haul around. love love love this.
but anyway...as you may remember (but probably didn't care enough to remember, which is totally a-okay) my high school reunion was last week. it had been 15 loooong years since graduation. and you guys...i was surprised at how nice it was to see those people. we didn't have a huge turnout, and there were certainly people that didn't make it that i wish had...but it was great. you don't know these people, but -

+ scott was still getting made fun of for his big head.
+ amanda was still super sweet and always ready to help.
+ kemp was still a complete and total smart ass.
+ andrea would have been voted reunion queen (she was prom queen) and might still be the nicest person i've ever met.

the most surprising part was - we have some doctors, a dermatologist, a dentist, nurses, lawyers, pharmacist, engineers, business owners, teachers...not that i thought our class was full of idiots. i just didn't realize our potential at the time. i mean...nampa high isn't known for it's rigorous curriculum or anything...i can't even use capitalization! anyway...

it was just so refreshing to have this blast from the past and not have it be a complete nightmare.

what i'm saying is this - if you have a chance to attend your high school reunion...go. you may be pleasantly surprised!

moving on...

1 | grab this here snazzy summer-themed button and link back to Sept. Farm.
2 | link up your post at the bottom of this post.
3 | tell all your friends + have a fantastic friday.

my five - i need your opinion

so...as i was saying...i attended my reunion. on the first night i wore a dress from j.crew. it was great. not as short as i would have liked, but comfortable and cute. i told my farmer it was going to pull double duty this summer and i would also be wearing it to a wedding in august. my farmer was completely happy with this idea...until i realized i wasn't completely happy with this idea.

(see blue dress in first picture. i'm on the right, front row.)
you see...the bride is gorgeous. and then i realized she's going to have all sorts of gorgeous friends in attendance. and then i realized my little, blue, j.crew dress wasn't going to cut it. i was going to need something a little...a little bit more...and a little bit less, if you know what i mean. 
don't know what i mean? shorter and sexier. 
so i hopped on rent the runway and that's where you come in - tell me which dress to get!

1 | this little pink number - i love it because it's short, i have nude strappy heels already,  it's not tight around the waist, and i can wear a bra. 

i don't like that bow...but i can get past it.

2 |  the olson twins kind of killed it with this dress. it's so darn cute and sexy and simple and perfect. i looove it. i love that it's short, and i love that it's black. totally classic.

i don't love that it will be tight on my middle. i think i'll be self conscious. but it looked good on the gals in the customer photos...so it makes me wonder!?

3 | hello dream dress. mostly just because it's a shift and i loooove shifts for their forgiveness when it comes to large boobies. i love this dress because it's short and i dig the cutouts.

i'm nervous about this dress because the reviews said it was pretty bright. i don't want to draw attention to myself...my farmer does that just fine on his own with all his sweet dance moves.

 4 | is this dress cute or is it something a 60 year old would wear...from the 60's? i mean...it's orange. it looks pretty great on the model, though. i'd probably need to go get a spray tan. i like the cutout in the back and i like that i would be able to wear a bra. also...i'd be able to eat as much cake as i wanted.
source
5 | and lastly...a long dress. *gasp* but isn't this dress the cutest!!! i looked at a million pictures of gals in this dress and honestly...even the big chested ladies looked good. i've never worn anything like this so it reeeeeallly makes me want to try it. but it's long...and we all know my aversion to long dresses. uh...no thanks. except for maybe this dress. it's just lovely.

downfall - no bra, it's long, and the ribcage might not fit. but i read the straps are adjustable, so...that might help.

and that's that! HELP! help. which dress would you rent? comment below. but before you comment...

  1. I love the first or fifth dress! :) It will look great either way girlie!

  2. I love all of them! The first dress is cute and flirty, but the black dress is classic and could be worn again. You can't go wrong with any of them.

  3. LOVE how most of them have cutouts!! I'm so obsessed with that right now. I vote third or fourth :)

  4. This is hard! I like the black one, or the last one. :) They are all great though!!

  5. P.S. Love RTR for short dresses - that way you're not dealing with length and heels and not being able to hem before you return it, blah! Especially for me because #shortgirlproblems

  6. 1 and 2... So you have a back up option of you don't like one of them on you!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Oh girl - 1 and 3 for the win but #2 is smokin' too!!

  8. I really like option 1 on you!

  9. I think all of them would look great on you, but from the description of the event - I think I would go with number 1!

  10. Love the first pink one or the long maxi! Both are fab! :)

  11. All of those dresses are SO pretty-- I don't think you could go wrong with any of them. I don't know how girls without a big chest wear dresses without...um... SUPPORT (if you know what I mean)... I feel like my dress options are so limited because of that.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I say #1 for you!!! What hard choices, are you sure you can't buy them all?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I thought I was the nicest person you'd ever met, not Andrea. ;) I like that blue dress you wore to the reunion more than any of the others, but second, I think the black is the cutest. Black to a wedding, though.....I dunno.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The first one or the black one. Super cute dresses. I do love the long dress though!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Really love dress 3 and 5!! I also love the black one! Is the wedding more black tie affair because I think that black dress would be great in that situation! Or you can always rent it for a special date night :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. i really like the floral one. when you say "rent" do you really mean you pay a fee, wear it and then ship it back?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the first two options, but honestly I think you'd look fabulous in any of them!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think I'd go with #1 or #3. I'm sure the maxi would be adorbs on you but you know..the farmer likes the legs!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I say #1 or #3 but they are all cute!

    Second dress! Or the maxi.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The first pink dress FTW!

    ReplyDelete
  22. The 4th dress is by FAR my favorite, except for the fact that it's orange. However, since we're getting close to fall, orange would be acceptable. The black dress comes in a close second, though. You can't go wrong with a LBD!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love both the first and second. The first is bold in color and will really make a statement!

  24. Love the bow on the back of dress #1, but I think the black one is prettiest.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I was very much Team #1 (because it seriously looks like it was made for someone like you!), but then I scrolled to #5 and how sexy is that neckline?!

    ReplyDelete
  26. They're all cute, but I think you'd look really great in #1! I like the bow with your short hair & showing leg & accentuating shoulder would be really sexy!

    ReplyDelete
  27. My first thought is the black dress - love everything about it....unless you will be uncomfortable in it. Then I don't like it at all. You could totally rock it. My second choice would be the high neck orange. Can't wait to see what you pick! <3

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh gosh! Socute. I love LOVE the first two. That black one is where it's at if you are going for short and sexy!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love the first dress or the 4th dress. Let us know what you wear!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I really like the black one and the pink shift dress! But definitely keep comfort in mind. There's nothing worse than getting half way through a wedding and realizing your belly is full and your dress is now too tight in the midsection! I hope that helps!

  31. Love 1 or 2! you would rock them both!

    ReplyDelete
  32. definitely #3. Super cute and I sort of like bright colors for summer weddings. :) Can't wait to see what you pick and how it looks!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I don't know if you made a choice yet (I'm very far behind on reading) but that black dress is adorable! They are all cute but I really like that one...a lot. :)
