I am headed to a high school graduation ceremony and party today. As usual, I am in a conundrum of what to wear. Casual? Casual-elegant? The event is being held outdoors in a vast tent, so the rough ground and potential weather will further complicate matters!
I know you can’t go wrong with a simple white skirt. So, using that as my building block, I’ve created two totally different looks. (Of course, you can create many, many more!)
The first idea is more casual-comfortable. Flat shoes, wicker crossbody bag, and a simple cardi complete the look.
The second concept is a bit more sophisticated. The elegant gray blouse, sleek slingback pumps, and stunning silver Ellen Lyons earrings are accented with a pop of color provided by the chic Michael Kors handbag.
Casual or elegant. Which white pencil skirt inspired ensemble do you think I should wear?
