mission dress-for-the-golf-tournament

{with jen, gentle creek, tank the turtle}

yesterday was the 2nd annual cornerstone nct golf tournament. the weather was gorgeous, i got to hang out with my awesome boss and drive a golf cart, and we raised money to help our neighbors in need. all in all, it was a top notch day in my book!

i will say, however, that i spent an unusual amount of time trying to figure out what to wear beforehand. no jeans are allowed, which was no problem- i knew it would be hot so i wanted to wear shorts, but you’re supposed to wear flat shoes (i strongly dislike tennis shoes) and a collared shirt (of which i have none).

since i obviously couldn’t run out and buy a polo, i went with this mandarin-type collar. shoe-wise, i opted for my favorite pair of sandals. they have a slight heel but are flat on the bottom.

i was comfortable, felt a little dressy (perfect since this is one of our biggest events of the year and i wanted to look the part), and had my sweater handy when the day cooled off.

ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to announce that mission dress-for-the-golf-tournament was a success.

    I would definitely have struggled with the “no heels” rule the most. But you look adorable!
