Early-morning birthday celebrations
Last year we celebrated my mom's birthday exactly two days before the entire country shut down. The Garden Room was popping off as if the virus didn't exist. Gloveless and maskless, we wined and dined in designer dresses from Rent the Runway. I wore a heavy, sequined LBD, my mom wore a Galvan stunner, and Diana wore a one-shouldered silk floral mini. Little did we know, after that, we wouldn't sport a fancy look for nearly another year. To celebrate my mom's 59th birthday this year, and coincidentally the "reopening" of the country exactly one year later, we decided to rent more dresses. The bookends of the pandemic for us are Rent-the-Runway experiences, and I hope it's a tradition that continues far beyond the pandemic. T
his year, however, we rented morning rather than night time looks to attend brunch before church. I love a day dress, so it was fun picking out options. After a shipping mishap, we were ultimately allowed 8 dresses. To see our looks this year, read my mom's blog. To see our looks from last year, peep our Instagram accounts. How are you feeling about the near end of the pandemic? Ready to dress up and pretend it's the Roaring 20's?
