what not to wear at commencement

[easyrotator]erc_65_1338926281[/easyrotator]Can’t believe I am putting this out there but here goes: unless you are the 18 year old girl with the really great bod do not wear short shorts to commencement. Ditto any excessive cleavage. Or stilettos which will invariably sink into any grass you need to walk on.

Do think about wearing a dress. Maybe in a color or pastel or floral. Preferably not black. If you need a heel consider a wedge.

I wore the Worth New York Apple Martini Ponte Empire Sheath.

Congratulations and enjoy.

So proud of you Linnie!

    What an absolutely fabulous idea! And what a GORGEOUS family. The Worth dress was made for you. So happy to see this great blog! Thank you

    • Ann, Thank you for your nice comment. It means so much. I wanted to come up with a way to share how great these clothes are. Sometimes when we are sitting in our office making phone calls and emailing it’s hard to share with the world out there! Looking forward to seeing you in New York. Hope things are well with you. Call or email anytime.

  2. What a great blog! As a college freshman, I wish you had this blog last year. The Worth apple martini dress looks phenomenal on you!

    • Oh I am so happy to hear that you are a college freshman! Education is the best! Good for you. Stay in touch, my daughter just finished her first year at Boston College and she is helping me with my blog this summer. I would love to have her guest post some great college looks!

  3. Beckie – I love your sense of humor. Always posting useful ideas in a fun and positive way. Your entire family should be picked up by a modeling agent. Gorgeous!

    • Thanks, Diana. I feel kind of funny about this blog thing sometimes but I guess I am just going to go with it!
