Today’s subject is totally frivolous, yet consumes so much energy: What to wear when your spouse is coming home? I really thought that we had covered this here at SpouseBUZZ, but I can’t find it in the archives, so there won’t be any links to other people’s crazy homecoming wardrobe mishaps.
My husband is coming home sometime soon and I was thinking that I should probably figure out what I’m going to wear. I’ve never been much of an outfit planner – last deployment, I just grabbed a pair of pants and a t-shirt. Of course, I had just had a baby, so not much fit, plus I was seriously worried about putting all those kids in something cute.
There are multiple things to consider. I’m not the kind of person who would wear something over-the-top to homecoming, so that is out. We’ve got a four hour drive each way, so comfort is important. Also, we have about 33 inches of snow at our house. That should probably be a factor. No slinky sandals for me!
What kinds of things have you worn to homecomings? I’d love to hear!
