Kevin and I recently attended our son’s White Coat Ceremony-it’s a formal ceremony where first year medical students are presented with their first white coat, which they are required to wear when they see patients. It’s a big deal, so I wanted to wear something that was formal, yet stylish.
Though my ruffled Theory dress (click here to see it) would have worked (and was my back-up outfit) I shopped around a lot. I wanted to wear pants and pumps and thought a dove grey or cream flowing silk blouse would be perfect for the occasion. I probably checked 50 shops, yet was unable to find “the one.”
I was about to give up, but then saw this gold lurex sweater with the sparkly collar-I loved it immediately. Though I was a bit concerned it was too festive, I was so fond of it that I bought it anyway, wore it to the ceremony and was even complimented on it. Even better, I can wear this outfit to any holiday parties later this year!
