Sometimes for my everyday I have to dress up a little bit more. I have to leave my corner of the lounge room, put in a bit more effort and head out to the big wide world.
Because I live at the beach the dress code is still pretty casual even if it’s a dress-up affair, which is good and bad. It’s tricky to get that fine line of smart in your casual. Don’t you think?
Last Friday, my eldest son, was inducted as a leader at his high school. I wasn’t missing that teering-up moment for anything. He kept offering me an out (it’s SO not cool, having your parents visit at high school. Not cool at all.) but I didn’t take it.
Secretly, I think he really wanted me there. He just wasn’t letting on.
So, what to wear for the ceremony and morning tea following?
1. It was pretty humid and we were going to be sitting in a big sports hanger without aircon, so I needed something that didn’t bring on the sweaty stuff in places you prefer to remain fresh.
2. Did you think I had abandoned my love of black this summer? No. Not a chance. The dress below is a perfect summer black as it’s lightweight, slightly structured but airy at the same time.
3. I’d been given this gorgeous dusty pink draped maxi vest before Christmas by the lovely people at St. Frock and hadn’t had a chance to wear it because I’d rarely been out of my swimsuit. It seemed like the perfect time to bring her out really.
What are you wearing today? What are you up to today? Why not post your everyday outfit photo on my Facebook page?
PS. Yesterday afternoon I blogged about geek chic iPad covers over at Justb. Come and have a look-see.
