This post is a little bit different.
I was challenged by ThirdLove, which is a bra and underwear company, to style an outfit around a strapless bra. My first question to them was simple; you know I’m a funeral director, right?!
After thinking about it for a minute, I figured that it wasn’t such a bad idea, since many people who check out my outfit posts are women, and you know, we use that stuff. The only thing was, I was trying to think of a situation where I would need a strapless bra for an outfit within the funeral profession.
Enter the WNY Funeral Directors Golf Outing.
Even though this was the 5th year for the golf outing, this was my first time volunteering. My friend Jack actually created/organizes/runs this event, and all I can say is…wow. The money raised benefits the local Women and Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, and the amount of hard work that goes into it is incredible.
I asked Jack what the dress code was and he said casual. This outfit ended up being my interpretation of ‘casual’. There’s actually a funny story behind this outfit; one day, I was with my mom and she wore this exact jumpsuit. I immediately became obsessed with it and when I found out that she recently got it at Old Navy, I went out and bought one for myself. The only thing is now I have to tell her when I’m planning on wearing it so we don’t show up someplace like twins! If anything, I think it just proves that I have a stylish mama!
Since I’m so short, I almost always wear a heel. Because I was going to be on a golf course all day, I wanted to try to be a little practical, so I wore these Aerosole wedges. Honestly, they were so comfortable and my feet didn’t hurt at all!
Lastly, I might have been a little extra, but I threw on this wide brim hat because I’m honestly afraid of the sun and didn’t want to burn. Pale Lauren – 1, Sun – 0.
Overall, over $10,000 was raised from this event! If you’re interested in donating anything as well, you can do so here!
And that bracelet that I’m wearing? That’s for the Lucky Fin Project. Jack has a beautiful baby girl who was born with a limb difference and we raised some money for that charity as well. It’s something that I never even heard of before and it was awesome to be able to learn more about it. It was such an a great day and I’m really looking forward to volunteering next year.
