“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you are going to mess it up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up… So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” – Marilyn Monroe

Outfit + Occasion: Graduation

When a reader emailed asking some advice on graduation dresses, I thought it would be a great “Outfit + Occasion” post – whether you are graduating yourself or attending the ceremony (or really, just add a hat for horse races!). It’s a bit of a long day and usually outside, so you’ll definitely want to be comfortable. And you need to be on the dressy/demure side but still wear something you’ll love long after the big day.

Try light colors in breathable fabric and avoid silk or other fabrics that would show wrinkles/sweat. Also, while I love an a-line skirt for comfort and a flattering shape, make sure you check that it works under your robe! In addition to the options above, I also love this Cynthia Steffe dress, this Milly one, this Lilly Pulitzer option and this Trina Turk dress – oh, and this kate spade one. Plus, there’s always Rent-the-Runway, which I love! They even have a specific graduation section for ideas!
