The end of the school year brings with it so many times that call for a dress. Sure, pants or a skirt would do, and sometimes quite nicely. Simply being a little old-school here thinking that graduations, moving up ceremonies, bridal showers, engagement parties, milestone birthday celebrations, special cocktail parties, a dress is best. A dress shows intent on the wearer’s part that something significant is taking place, and that you’re honored to be there.
For youngest daughter’s 8th grade graduation followed her lead, haha, and wore a white dress with a nude shoe. Not completely white, didn’t want to appear as I too was hoping to graduate, but white with some strong pattern. The nude shoe actually a nude suede shoe boot, with this getting older thing always try to keep it looking modern.
Given the choice by her Catholic school of wearing any pastel colored or white dress with any colored shoe, we chose a simple white ponte with fitted bodice and slight a-line skirt, and a classic patent nude pump. Felt confident that years from now she could look back and feel appropriately dressed.
My work with women young, older, and in-between continually reminds me that most want to look and feel their best and to know that what they are wearing for any given occasion is appropriate and good-looking. For end of school year happenings, think about a white dress and nude shoe. Classic.
Every day dress, mother daughter, white dress nude shoe.
