A Night Out

Well, it's the season again for Military Balls! We have a ball coming up in December and I always enjoy looking for a dress. Last year I rented a dress from Rent The Runway and I had a great experience. I have found a few that I like, I want something different and outside of my comfort zone. 

These are the dresses I am looking at right now and I love how unique and different they all are. I got a lot of compliments on my dress last year and I would love to top it. Our ball is at a hotel about an hour an away so it will be a nice overnight date night with Kyle. My Dad is going to be here to stay with E for us.






I have already reserved one of these dresses but I'm going to wait to share which one until I know for sure. I can be pretty indecisive so I may change my mind after a while haha. I know there are some people that say wearing a short dress to a military ball isn't the best thing to do but I've seen several people do it and I've done it before. 

I can't wait to get dressed up and enjoy a night out. 

Do you enjoy getting dressed up for special events?

  1. I like the blue one on top and the black one on bottom! But no matter which one you choose, you can't go wrong! All beautiful dresses!

  2. I like one and three!! I have done short dresses too, I think they are cute when done right, if you know what I mean ;) I am kind of glad we don't have a ball to go to this year, because I always want to top the year before, and that is just exhausting LOL!

  5. I have a tea-length dress that I'll probably end up wearing to our ball... whenever it is. They've changed the date at least 5 times now.

  7. Tough decision! I like the colors and the uniqueness of #1. I admit I've had my eye on #3 for awhile. I've worn short (knee length) twice and those are the times I've been most comfortable. I think you have to keep a level of formality when you wear short with your accessories and shoes. You always pick great dresses and lot awesome. You really do!

  9. Oh this will be such a special night! I love all of the dresses, and I think any will work for a ball! I would probably go with #2 because that's just my style, but I always think that the most important thing is that you love your dress and you're comfortable in it. I used Rent the Runway for the submarine ball two years ago and I loved it because I was able to wear a dress I normally wouldn't wear! I love military balls.

  10. I wish that I could still get dressed up for something fancy like a ball! In school we were lucky enough to have a few formals, and I loved it! All of your choices are so beautiful, and you're going to look great in whatever you choose! I bet that it'll be nice to get away for a night too!

  11. I LOVE the bottom dress. I have a ball in January. Ugh. Haven't even considered what to wear...

  12. These are all so pretty, I don't think I can pick a favorite! You will look beautiful in all of them! So exciting to have something fancy to look forward to!

  13. #1 is my favorite, because I feel like it would be so flattering! You have such muscular/pretty shoulders (which sounds really weird when I say it out loud...LOL!), but I really think you would be stunning in it!

  14. Ooh, my vote is for number one!! I can't wait to see which one you picked out!! But number 3 is super cute as well!! Actually, they all are.. xx

  15. They're all so pretty! Sounds like you've got a fun night lined up ahead of you. I'm thinking of renting a dress for my work christmas party, I just can't face shopping and I'm supposed to be getting rid of my clothes... I wear party dresses so rarely that it really doesn't make sense to buy one.

  16. I dont think the length matters at all if it's a classy dress. Hoping you hav a great time!

  17. The military balls sound sooo fun! I'd love to get all dolled up for something. All of these dresses are amazing! Can't wait to find out which you pick!

  19. They are all so pretty.

    I don't like to go personally, because I'm an introvert. I also hate getting dressed up. I'm all about comfort ;)
