In my post from last Monday, I
begged asked my blog readers and Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook followers for help in choosing an outfit to wear to my 27th high school reunion (yeah, 27th – more on that in a minute).
Here were the options:
Although all 5 outfits received votes, #1 was the hands-down winner.
Here’s what it looked like in 3-D.
Source Info — Black drapey tank top: $19.50 (J.Crew Factory); Catherine Boyfriend, on sale for $53 now! (Kut from the Kloth); Espadrille wedges: $24.99 (Payless Shoes); Multicolor fringe seed bead necklace: $42 (Pomp and Circumstance Boutique); Micro Moto Satchel Bag: $75 on sale (Rebecca Minkoff); Gold Cluster Statement Bracelet: $17.58 (ILYMIX.com — use coupon code EVERYDAYJEN20 for 20% off at this retailer!); Black Zola Band Bracelet: $15 (Bead for Life)
If you remember a few weeks back when I was first thinking about what to wear, this (below) was one of the Polyvore sets I created. I think it probably inspired this reunion look.
This outfit ended up being perfect for the reunion Saturday night. It was comfortable to move around in and also easy to travel in (we had a 3-hour drive there and back).
So why did we have a 27-year class reunion? Simple answer: because we wanted to get together and we didn’t feel like waiting until our 30th. One of our dear friends is suffering from ALS and we don’t know how much time he has left, so we decided to carpe diem. I am so glad we did. It’s always so comforting to spend time with the people who knew you way back when.
