Pamela Lutrell discusses what to wear to a shower

Today is Wednesday…What Should I Wear day and I found myself with a little bit of a challenge when it was announced the office would host a baby shower for a co-worker.  I think it is fun now that usually we know the gender of the baby before the little one joins us in the world.  This shower is for a little baby girl and I LOVE to shop for girls!  

Over 50 Feeling 40 on Baby Showers

I hit Marshall’s right when they brought out some new baby items and these are just a couple of the baby girl specialties I grabbed! Everything was so cute…I could’ve gone nuts.   Remember at Marshall’s that Tuesdays are senior discount days with a 10% off of already pretty good pricing on quality selections.

I had other meetings that day, but desired to stay in the “spirit” of the event, so I combined these pieces from my closet:

  1. A Talbot’s navy cardigan
  2. A navy silk top by Tahari and from Marshalls (years ago)
  3. A navy, pink and taupe scarf I found at the Loft years ago
  4. Taupe crepe Eileen Fisher Pants from Dillards
  5. Copper Cole Haan Ballet Flats

I felt like wearing too much pink would takeaway the professional vibe I needed for the day.  I do have some great JJill pink pants, but they are more for springtime.  I liked that I could go with a touch of both pink and blue.  These days if you are invited to a “gender reveal” most want you to wear the color of what you think the baby is.  So far, with grandchildren, I have been spot on!  We have four boys and a girl.   Normally, I would attend a baby shower after work and could wear something more fun, casual, and creative.  But, I have to say the co-workers did a great job and it was fun to have the guys around.  We had to guess baby pictures of people we work with and it was difficult but fun.  I enjoyed watching the guys put up with and even get into the shower games!

So, let me ask you…do you think baby showers and wedding showers are events where you feel more compelled to wear a dress?  If so, please share with us if that is one of the standard fashion rules you usually follow?!  Today’s slide show features PINK and BLUE in honor of baby showers.  Hope you enjoy it!
