My social calendar is quite full this weekend: graduation on Friday and the wedding of a former student on Saturday! Since I frequently go months on end with nothing too special going on, I figured such momentous occassions were the perfect
excuse oppurtunity for some shopping.
When I set out to find a dress I didn’t really have a silhouette or color scheme in mind, but I did have very specific requirements. The ideal dress needed to be appropriate for a variety of events and needed to be comfortable, feminine, and flattering. Easier said than found, right?
I figured if anything I was going to have to err on the side of dressier, and slightly uncomfortable, when it came time to purchase a dress, but thankfully, this Porridge dress from Anthropologie more than met my needs. The A-line silhouette is both uber-feminine and comfortable, which means I will be able to breathe while sitting through the graduation ceremony but still feel glamorous enough to attend an evening wedding the next night. I love the interest the graphic florals bring to the dress, making it super easy to accessorize for both graduation and the wedding. A statement necklace and a delicate bracelet or two is all that is really needed to complete the look.
Style Notes: Gap cardigan (ancient; similar style) / Anthropologie dress (spring 2013) / Kate Spade shoes via Last Chance (winter 2013; love these) / Anthropologie earrings (spring 2013)/ Anthropologie necklace (spring 2013)
