Summer means a lot of things to everyone – vacation, BBQs, camp, no school/work, etc. But it’s also Wedding Season! Personally, I love weddings. I just love LOVE. This summer we only had one wedding to attend, but it was an extra special one – my little sister’s! The ceremony was gorgeous and the party was a major blast. Minor incident with a misplaced wedding license, but all was taken care of by 9:30am. And no it was not on purpose!
The day itself was mass chaos and unfortunately I spent a solid chunk of the morning on conference calls for work, on top of the lack of sleep from updating financial documents until 1am. By 11:30a my phone died, so luckily the problem solved itself for the afternoon. The craziness was worth it because I’ve never seen my sister smile so hard.
For those of us with a skin condition, formal wear can be tough, especially for the ladies. And even more especially when someone else is dictating what you will be wearing. The major stresses that week at work leading up to the wedding did a major number on my skin. My upper arms, upper back and legs were broken out. The long gown solved for my legs, but the halter dress highlighted those particular areas. This might sound weird, but thank goodness for spray tanning! One application helped cover up my spots and I felt comfortable all day and you can’t see anything in the photo’s.
If the spray tanning didn’t work, I did come up with Plan B, Plan C & Plan D.
Plan B: Arm cuffs & wearing my hair long down my back
Plan C: A light wrap (not ideal for the June heat, but sometimes beauty is painful)
Plan D: Whatever, it’s my sister’s wedding. Nobody’s looking at anyone but the beautiful bride! (Unless of course you’re Pippa Middleton)
What are your favorite skin covers for formal events?
