This week Sheila chose our Style Perspectives prompt, a graduation look!
I do believe I am done with my own graduation ceremonies, having completed my Master's degree, and I don't yet have children of my own to watch graduate. But teachers often attend these ceremonies to celebrate the success of their students! This is the first year that I don't teach seniors so I will not be attending graduation, but I will be attending our 8th Grade Awards Night where I get to present the French Award to a few of my outstanding students.
To me, this is the perfect graduation look for a teacher. It is bright, fun and celebratory! But it is also modest, work-appropriate and comfortable. I definitely don't want to stand in front of an auditorium of 8th graders and parents feeling over-exposed!
This dress was a recent find at Ann Taylor on sale! The material is thick and flattering while still being comfortable. I decided the floral print seems retro to me so I decided to up the vintage vibe with my oversized pearls.
What I'm Wearing:
Dress: Ann Taylor (exact)
Necklace: Amazon (exact)
Tights: Nordstrom (exact)
Shoes: DSW (similar)
