Father Daughter Recap

Father daughter has always been a special event for both my dad and for me. I grew up going to Daddy-Daughter dances through girl scouts when we lived in Chicago, and then I went to the annual Father Daughter at my high school both freshman and sophomore year, but I didn't make it last year. Because my Dad moved to Rhode Island my sophomore year, really any occasion that we spend together is special. I saw him in November when I went to DC, again when I went out East for Christmas, and I am so incredibly grateful that my dad could make it Saturday night for my senior year dance!

Both of my Dad's flights got cancelled due to the huge snowstorm that hit the East Coast, so he made the 16 hour drive alone all the way here for the event. Seriously, it was so nice of him. I have been looking forward to my senior year Father Daughter for what feels like forever because it's tradition for senior dad's to wear tuxes (which is so cute) and the event really is so incredibly fun, and even more special since my Dad couldn't make it in last year.


I mentioned I ordered this dress for the night (more LBD's right here!), but it didn't look very good on me once it arrived in the mail. It's a bad habit that I always find my mom and I shopping frantically the afternoon of dances looking for a dress, and this time around was no exception! However, I ended up finding something that I was so excited about! I wore a jumpsuit! 

It was quite the risk for me choosing to wear this backless jumpsuit on Saturday night, but I am so glad I did! I got so many compliments and no one else was wearing anything even kind of similar because they were all in dresses... I'm not going to lie, I was a little nervous to show up in a jumpsuit but I really love the look! I paired it with similar earrings, these shoes (from prom), similar bracelet, this bralette (made backless with some funky convertible strap, but the lace looked so pretty peaking out underneath), and a high ponytail!

Overall, the night was so much fun and incredibly special. (There was a hot chocolate bar!!!) I'm so glad my dad could make it in given the weather conditions, and it was definitely a memorable evening.

How was your weekend?

  1. Love the idea of a jumpsuit for a dance, honestly I'm so jealous, jumpsuits and two-piece dresses were not a thing when I was in high school (in 2004-2008) and I totally wish I could've rocked some of these styles! Sounds like a fun weekend, glad your dad made it :)

  2. Wow that's such a special weekend! Love the jumpsuit option instead of a dress- especially for the colder months!
