On Friday my sister becomes a doctor. Kind of crazy, and very exciting. So, I'm going back to Chicago for another fun event and of course what that means is - a new outfit, or at least a plan for one. A lot of people are going to graduations these days and here are a couple of ideas for a nice graduation outfit, not too nice mind you. These are not black tie affairs.
My first one - I like this cute denim dress,
I think it has an adorable shape and it's very wearable, it will not hang in your closet much this summer. My most-frequently worn clothes end up tossed on a chair most of the time between wearings, why put it away when you will want it again in 2 days? It drove my parents crazy when I was a kid and now my husband has to deal with it. oh well.
The thing about the dress though, is that it needs a little oomph, and this necklace by Twinkle will certainly give it a playful edge -
But there is of course another option -
It's a jersey dress with a cute ruffle which comes in a rainbow of fruit flavors - red, purple, white, etc. It's on sale for half off, making it an even better purchase. I find these easy to wear jersey dresses perfect for summer, you can roll them up and toss them in a suitcase and they work perfectly, you can throw them over a bathing suit or wear them to a morning graduation - perfection in my book. Everything should be that versatile.
This one would probably work just as well with the Twinkle necklace, or with something more delicate like this -
Throw on some flat sandals and use a cute little bag and you are good to go.
