What to Wear to a Graduation Party

It's graduation party season and most likely you'll be invited to at least one. So far, I've been to two and my kiddos haven't even graduated yet (TOMORROW!). It's always a toss up when deciding what to wear because most parties are outside and the weather can be pretty unpredictable. To add another layer of complication, because I'm still the "teacher," I can't just wear any old tank top and shorts, especially knowing that other students and parents will be around. Here's what I decided on for an outside pavilion party:

LOFT Tee Khaki Shorts 1

LOFT Tee Khaki Shorts 2

Top: LOFT Shorts: Old Navy (old) Necklace: J. Lloyd Beads (see also here) Sandals: Kohl's (last year)

I felt like the top was pretty appropriate because it's not extremely form-fitting and it has quarter sleeves. I paired it with neutral shorts (not too short) and some comfy sandals. The necklace keeps it a little dressier as well. I felt comfortable, covered, and put-together.

What are you wearing to graduation parties?

Be prepared--tomorrow I get a little sappy with a letter to my students. I can't believe they'll (finally) be graduating! I may even have some "new" readers...
