Family Reunion Coming UP

Hi everyone, 

Okay so I am going to my family reunion at the end of this month.  There are family memebers who I have never met before as well as family who I havent seen in years, hence, family reunion. However, this event is very special to me not only because I get to see family who I havent seen or even met before but because I have lost over 150lbs and no one has really seen me at a smaller weight, except for local family members.   I'm on a very tight budget right now since I have done a huge move.  I have brown hair and eyes, I'm 5'7" and im pale. My body shape is a triangle and my face is a square.  The event is going to be held in an indoor/outdoor home in really nice weather.  The weather ranges from 85-100 degrees.  I would like adivce on hair styles, and outfits.  I have been trying to come up with something like white pants with a halter top with a cute pair of sandals??   Im not comfortable with wearing skirts or dresses unless they are long since I do have sagging skin in certain areas that are visable.  

Thanks for advance.

Hi Crystal,

First off, congratulations on your weight loss.  That's amazing!  It must feel so good to have lost that much weight.

A family reunion sounds like oh so much fun!  I really like what you've already put together for an outfit idea- its actually very similar to what I was going to suggest. I'm terrified of wearing white, but I have small children so that's probably why.  Black capris would be what I would personally gravitate towards.

How long is your hair?

HI, Thank you so very much for your reply. And thank you, I have worked hard to loose this weight. I feel great! My hair now is shoulder length. I went ot supercuts the other day and got it cut with bangs. I also went out and purchased Revlon #48 which is burgundy hair color. I am going to flat iron my hair to get the straight look. So far I look amazing! lol..... I was also thinking of an outfit like a pair of black pants, with a sleeveless blouse, or halter top. What do you think about that? Me too, am terrified of wearing white, however, I was thinking the lighter color and fabric the cooler I will be since it may be pretty hot at the end of the month. But yet, I am more comfortable with black. I was thinking of capris, but for some reason, I feel shorter than I really am when I try them on. So I have never wore those. Crystal
