June 17, Graduation Dress

Well, today’s the big day, my baby is graduating from high school. They say it goes by fast, and they weren’t kidding! Holy cow! For today’s ceremony, I am wearing this cute orange dress.

I love the bright color, the cute eyelet pattern, the nipped waist and the flouncy hem. I also love that it has pockets. For some reason I love a dress with pockets! I might need to stash some Kleenex in there for today’s ceremony. Sniff…

This dress is not too dressy, but dressy enough that no matter what others are wearing I should feel appropriate. Having never gone to one of these before (besides my own 30 years ago) you never know what people will be wearing! On that note, my outfit for convocation Saturday was fine. I was not over or under dressed, thank goodness! 🙂

Dress- Nordstrom Rack

April 21, Easter Sunday

Happy Easter everyone! It’s supposed to be a gorgeous day here in the Pacific Northwest, so I’ve decided to wear a white dress to celebrate. Question is- which dress?

Because we are going out for brunch, I think I’ll chose the option on the right. This cute J Crew dress has a looser fit, making more room for all the delicious food I’ll be eating. I love the sleeves , plus how the eyelet changes below the waist. The neckline is also super cute.

The dress on the left is from Zara, and I love it for all it’s simplicity. This fit and flare style is a super flattering for people who are curvy and have wider hips (like me).

Both dresses look great with neutral wedges- keeping the focus only on the dress. If it’s chilly, I’ll throw on a cute jacket!

Eyelet Dress- J Crew Mine is old, but here is a similar one! Here’s another! And one more here!

Fit and Flare Dress- Zara, mine is old- but here is a similar one! And here’s another cute one!

Shoes- Clarks! Again, mine are old, but here is a similar pair! And these are cute too!
