Spring Graduation for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: A Casual Party
Quote of the day: “We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.” Stevie Wonder
With spring comes many parties for some of us—we just got our first invitation last weekend! Graduation parties are one of the fun occasions for which you could be invited this season. For this post I concentrated on a casual party , usually the backyard variety. Thus all three of us donned some jeans and tried to look chipper!! I came up with three different looks for a graduation ceremony in the last post (here).
50’s Outfit: Thanks to Gemma’s wishlist back in March–I got the idea to put together these jeans & shirt! Who knows why I picked these shoes…I wish I’d gone with a lighter color.
Jeans: Simply Vera-thrifted (similar here)~~Top: Ann Taylor-thrifted (similar here)~~Shoes: Mossimo (similar here)~~Belt: (similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)
60’s Outfit: If you’re not going to be sitting on the ground, then white jeans are one of my favorites for showing off a bright color like this green!
Pants: Chico’s (similar here)~~Cardigan: Charlotte (similar here or color here)~~Top: Chico’s (similar here)~~Shoes: Spring Step (similar here & here in a flat)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)
70’s Outfit: Mom added the beading to the hem of this scarf she is wearing—now there’s one way to make an item your own!
