Style: Graduation Outfit

Rebecca Taylor dress, Via Spiga sandals, Christian
Dior wallet and sunglasses

I’m very excited to share that my son is graduating from college.  It’s hard to believe because it seems like just yesterday when we helped him move into his dorm room!  Of course I bought a new outfit for this big event, and I put a lot of thought into it.

I wanted a day dress, one that wasn’t too revealing, but that wasn’t dowdy.  It couldn’t be black since Southern California in May can be very warm, and we’ll be sitting outdoors.  But just in case the weather is cool and overcast, I didn’t want a sleeveless or floaty silk dress.  Shoes were another concern because to me, the occasion warrants heels instead of flats, but stilettos were out of the question since we’ll probably do a lot of walking.

When I saw these Via Spiga sandals, I knew they were the ones, even though they didn’t go with the dress I originally bought (which I ended up returning).  This white Rebecca Taylor dress is perfect-it’s appropriate for the occasion, flatters my figure, and complements the shoes!  The fuchsia wallet on a chain is small and elegant and adds a pop of color!  I’m glad to say I’m prepared for Sean’s rite of passage.
