What Not to Wear to a Military Homecoming
It is true that if you are pushing a baby stroller and holding onto a toddler, the last thing you might want to be wearing is 5-inch heels at homecoming. However, deciding just what to wear to homecoming could be causing you more stress than you ever thought possible.
Here are four simple tips to help with your homecoming day preparation for putting together your outfit, hair and makeup:
Keep it simple and classy, not trashy
No matter what your loved one says, you’ll want to be somewhat comfortable during those waiting hours. You don’t want to be over dressed or underdressed. Keep in mind your loved ones boss, boss’s boss and most likely boss’s, boss’s boss will be at homecoming and you’ll want to make a good impression. Think classy and sexy, but definitely not like you are ready for the club, or the soccer field. Keep the length of your skirt respectable. If you have trouble sitting or walking for fear of your skirt hiking up too high, then trust me it is too short and opt for a longer option. If you are shopping for a new outfit, keep the costs down by signing up for email discounts and coupons from your favorite clothing retailers, check the sale racks and remember to look for extra discounts by shopping one-day sales.
