My biggest challenge this year… is this, dressing up like a girl for my best friends wedding.
It’s all so new to me and I have to say that I’m glad I’ve got Fit Girl and my best friend to help me out!
I was thinking… yesterday, my best friend delivered my lovely dark blue bridesmaid dress to me at work. I told a few if my female colleagues that it was here, and they got so excited and wanted to see it.
There I was standing, unzipping the dress bag, and they were so excited … I on the other hand, wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to stepping up to the mark and looking like a lady for the day, but it won’t come natural to me, and it might just be one of the biggest challenges of my life.
I know that might sound a bit strange to all of you girly girls out there, who love getting dressed up in high heels and dresses, but for me, I get my excitement from garmin’s, gadget and trainers, not looking or dressing up like a lady. 😉
I am and always have been a bit of a Tom boy. As a teenager and young adult, I rarely dressed up as a girl and can count on the one hand the number of times I’ve dressed up in a skirt or dress. It’s just me.
Anyway, for my best friends wedding in keen to step up to the challenge of looking (and acting) like a pretty lady for once in my life! I’ve got the high heels (ok they’re only about an inch high, but if I got higher I’d be stuck in one spot, trust me.
So now I’ve got the dress too and I need to get it altered so that it fits, and get a bra that fits and works with the dress (and hopefully gives me a bust too!) All of this, especially the alterations and long trailing dress are very new to me.
I was saying (jokingly) yesterday to my Dad that I thought I might be I’ll as I was starting to like my new sparkly heels and they were starting to feel comfy. (After an hour of wearing them I wasn’t saying that, so I clearly need to wear them in a bit more around the house).
He replied and said:
> If you put the dress on and love it you will really be in trouble!!!
I like the dress, but I like my trainers and shorts better. 😉 I don’t think I’ll be TURNING into a lady just yet.
Ps: I’m sorry if all if this is a bit off subject re training etc, I was a bit worried it might put people off reading my blog, but someone said it’s nice seeing the journey … of me TURNING from Tom boy / runner to lady in a dress and heels.
I will rise to the challenge and I’ll try my best to help make my best friends wedding the best day of her life.
(Running a marathon might be easier for me! Lol)
