PostSubject: Homecoming...what to wear?   Tue Oct 07, 2008 11:44 am

This is my first time being able to go see him pull in from deployment. I live in Florida and I am going to VA within the next 2 weeks, and I am trying to figure out what to wear. I hear its chilly over there. Last year I went in September, he told me it was hot, so i brought SUMMER clothes. I came home sick as a dog and lost my voice. DON'T want that to happen again, I can't afford to get sick lol Also, what do they do when they pull in? Ive heard they have this big ceremony for a couple of hours and a band playing and all. I dont know what to expect so I dont know what to wear. Just looking for some help lol. Im pretty sure I am going to wear jeans, Sweater dresses over here are not as a big demand and they are too expensive for one day.

Lol can tell what's on his mind lol.

Well we don't want you to come down sick and I want to congratulate you that he is coming home soon.

What to wear? Well I would suggest maybe nice dress pants and cute top. You can never go wrong with that :) That's just my opinion!

I never been to a homecoming yet, so I'm not quite sure. I would wear something that you'll be comfortable in :) If his mom is wearing jeans then maybe you should to.
I just always tell myself when my DH comes home from a deployment I want to look nice, even though he'll just be happy to see me since it would of been a long time.

I just suggested nice dress pants, because I wear them all the time and I never seen them as to dressy. I would think a business outfit is dressy...but I wouldn't wear that.

At first I thought you were talking about Homecoming as in school and the football game, ha. I am still so new at this :)

Cara's got some good advice. And even if his mom is wearing jeans, you are always allowed to step it up if you want to look nice. But if you did want to wear jeans, there are ways you can dress them up, with a nice shirt or two, and it just depends on the accessories you have.

Haha. I miss high school homecomings. The dress and the heels! LOVE it. So sad now to think that was 3 years ago. lol

I am planning to wear jeans with heels. I dont want to look like a horrible scrub lol But with weather wise and me being a tropical girl, I dont know what 60-70's is.

It is cold...it will be freezing on the pier.

If it is mildly cold in VA Beach by the time you get to the Pier it will be 10-20 degrees colder cause you are RIGHT on the water.Here in Northern VA it is already sweatshirt and jeans weather.It has been dropping down to 48 at the evening and during the day.

My husband has told me to not dress up...but I look at this way...he hasn't had sex for 6-9 months,so do you wanna look amazing? Or just like everyone else?

My husband comes back in the Spring so Caoilainn and I can dress up to meet Daddy.Im going to put her in a cute outfit prolly just a onesie...I also have a bib for her to wear that says 'Somebody on the (Ship Name) Loves Me' that I bought from the FRG.

I plan on getting my hair done,eyebrows done,and nails done before he comes home.Also getting the car shampooed and cleaned inside out.

They prolly do not care what you look like...they don't,they wanna be back in America and eat real food.My husband ate 6 hamburgers from Wendy's the last time...he was so happy to eat a decent meal.

So that puts into perspective what is going through their mind...haha.

We're also going to do a weekend getaway (DH is in charge of it which scares me...haha) to we can have "couple time" before we have to be hardcore parents...haha.

Good luck!

good response, shannon. he won't really care what you're wearing, he'll just be happy to see you! i haven't done a homecoming yet but, i KNOW it's chilly on the pier so you better bring a jacket or sweater to wear if you plan on wearing a dress or anything like that. i'll probably be like shannon and go all out since i haven't seen my husband in 6 months or so....that's just me though. wear whatever you feel comfortable in. :)

No way will I wear a dress. Im from an island. Winter for us is 85! Hes more worried about the lingerie than what I wear outside. I might do the layering thing and bring a nice sweater.

I suck at accessories. Its like a foreign language to me lol My best friend is very good with that and she helps me out, but shes back in Indiana.

I am trying not to spend anything. I asked a friend who lived in Ohio for a long time and she has some clothes I might be able to wear. Hopefully I can find something cute and warm!

Well plans have changed. Looks like we might not be able to see him at the pier. Whats life without the Navy throwing the curveball. I thought it was too good to be true, they got me though.

I think I have what to wear, even though I cant see him pull in, im just happy hes coming home! Smile
