There is wisdom in my friendslist, and knowledge, too.

What does one wear to an informal backyard, afternoon wedding? Other than a big straw hat?


I'd wear something not totally casual, but not dressy. About a business casual level but girlier than khakis, with the same shoes I wear to shul (mainly cos my shoe wardrobe is tennies, huaraches, sandals, shul shoes). If you've got anything in your wardrobe that you bought because you liked it but you weren't sure where to wear it cos it wasn't really right for shul, but it wasn't really right for the office either, this would be the place.


Do people actually do that? Buy clothes they don't know where to, um, wear?

This is why I get a D in girl, I think. I *hate* buying clothes - mostly, I need to justify the time and the expense to myself, so the only reason I'd get something is if I needed it. I *wish* it were otherwise, or I wouldn't be, you know, caught short by, "Oh, God. I need to buy a second pair of *shoes*."

So, I have one or two dressy suits, some t-shirts and other strictly day-off tops, and everything else is on the "work/shul" continuum. And that's usually fine, but since I have an excuse for something new...I am taking it.
