Style Perspectives - a graduation look

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

14 bloggers each picked a look that defined their personal style.  The featured blogger on the Blended Blog showcases her signature style (the prompt for that day) and then the other bloggers (on their personal blogs) show how they interpret it AND you get to join in on the fun by linking up!!! (prompts at bottom of post)

Here's a recap of last week's jeans, blazer, tee and sneakers looks:

I have to say, this was one of my FAVS!!! I love the mix of dressy and super casual. 

A Graduation Look

I've been through my graduations and it'll be a little while yet before I'm attending a graduation for either of my littles (although, given the rate at which time seems to be speeding by, it won't be nearly as far off as I think) so today I'm pretending. Here's what I'd wear if I were attending a graduation:

yes, that's a remote in my hand. My picture-taking secret REVEALED! My plumber husband is brilliant at many a things... picture-taking is NOT one of them. Sadly, I'll never be one of those bloggers who seems to have a photographer with mad skills following them around everywhere. Darn. That also explains the poor editing - I have no idea what I'm doing.

I bought this Calvin Klein dress right after having Oliver and got a great deal on it! It's kind of big now but I just tightened the belt a little so hopefully it's not too noticeable.

Red lips are a practically a requirement when you're wearing neutral colors. That's a rule right? No?

Comfy peep-toe heels and a clutch and I'm good to go.... now, if only I had somewhere to go lol.
