Spring Graduation for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: A Formal Get Together

Quote of the day: “Character, like sweet herbs, should give off its finest fragrance when pressed.” Anonymous

The graduation season is soon upon us and if you’re lucky enough to get invited to the formal party, you’ll want to throw on a dress and join the fun! I explored what to wear for the graduation ceremony (here) and a casual party (here). Now we’ll think about the possibility of a more formal get together. Of course, one of us could have worn pants, but I thought it’d be more cohesive if we all showed off our legs! There is some variety in the fact that I styled mom in a skirt with a t-shirt (and dressed it up nicely) for a somewhat more casual vibe. Then I styled Nancy in a knit dress with a polished looking jacket for a little more elegance, and I got extra gussied up with a metallic dress.
