Fashion Friday! Attending a Graduation

, by Susan Harbourt, 4 min reading time

Graduation Season is in Full Swing!  What you should wear and accessorize with depends on both your personal style and the event at hand.  Samantha and Susan are here to share with you ideas on what outfits and accessories we would wear to the graduations we plan to attend this season.

Samantha's Outfit Selections:

Attending My Friends (and twin sister's) College Graduation:

          Whether it is a College graduation of a friend or a sibling, you're sure to wow them with an outfit featuring the Adjustable Length Eco Friendly Up-cycled Copper Forget-Me-Not Bouquet necklace.  Nothing screams summer and congrats to your loved ones more than a sunshine yellow dress, tan wedges and an elegant flower necklace.  You will most definitely make a statement at any graduation with those bright summery colors and ombre flower necklace. Don’t be shocked if a person decides to snatch that necklace right off your neck, heck maybe even offer to give it to them as a wonderful parting gift letting them know that they will not be forgotten, you sure won't looking this fabulous!

Attending My Own Graduation:

            A flower dress, black wedge booties, red lipstick, a yellow clutch, and silver jewelry are the summer must haves for your gradation ceremony and party.  The Silver Ripples Necklace made from recycled sterling silver will certainly catch the sparkle of the summer sun, and make your outfit almost glowing when walking across the stage of your graduation ceremony.  The Classic Hoop Silver Earring is a classy simple pairing.  Not only does it fit perfectly with every outfit, but it adds the added shimmer that you want without competing with your natural beauty. The skater style flower dress is perfect for every graduation ceremony, whether you are feeling extra casual or dressy.  Nothing is completed without the right silver jewelry and red lipstick.  Now it’s time to celebrate the right way!  Congrats, grad!  I toss my hat for you!

Susan's Outfit Selections:

Attending My Son's Kindergarten Graduation:

           This year my little guy graduates Kindergarten.  It is a big milestone but as a busy mom I don't have time to shop for a special outfit for this event.  So I choose with my go to navy blue dress with the ruching at the waist to camouflage the mommy tummy.  A pair of ballet flats will let me chase after the little guy for a photo-op as he plays with his friends before the big event, and of course, I need a bag to carry all the stuff I may need at any given moment.  I accent the outfit with a simple cardigan (just in case I get chilly) and I wear my go to reclaimed Copper Circle Earrings and Upcycled Copper Ripples Necklace.  I love how that necklace is the perfect amount of shimmer and size and shape to fill in the space on my chest that makes me feel self-conscience when too much is exposed, but is not so overwhelming that I feel flashy.  It is also adjustable from 16" to 18" so I can wear it with so many necklines!
