Hello sweet ladies and gents!
I thought in lieu of my upcoming prom this May that I'd do a little 'back to the past' sort of post featuring all of the formal dances I've attended in high school! Looking back at my freshman year's homecoming it makes me smile at how excited I was. I looked at homecoming as my own little chance at a wedding and wanted everything to be the definition of perfection. I researched and thought about my outfit so much I was unbelievably stressed out...about something that was supposed to be fun! It's funny now because I would never in a million years pick out the dress OR hairdo that I picked for that year. Yeesh, that picture makes me cringe the most!
I love all of the dresses I've worn, but the one I picked out for this year's prom is my favorite one yet. I don't know, it just feels so...me. I can't explain it. It's just a dress that is timeless and classic; one that I (hope!) not to look back years from now and say, 'what was I thinking!?' In the next few days or so I promise to do a post on it...I've just been planning on the perfect moment to do a post and show you all! I know, I know I'm ridiculous...obviously I still haven't changed much from my freshman year ;)
But speaking of changing; goodness haven't Matt and I changed SO incredibly much...? We don't even look like the same people! Especially Matt...I mean, he's been a handsome date all of these years but he just looks so much more manly and masculine in the recent ones. Most girls can't say that they've been to every formal dance with the same guy, but I can! He makes the perfect date ♥
Do you all look at your old formal pictures and cringe, or would you still wear the same thing?
Hope you all are having a good weekend!
With much love, Lauren.
