A Graduation Look!

Back for another round of Style Perspectives with The ladies of The Blended Blog! So hard to believe we are almost through all the looks! (Check out all my takes on the prompts {here}). This week’s prompt is a graduation look courtesy of Sheila, whose son just had his home school graduation this past weekend.  A big congrats to him!  And wait til you see Sheila! She looked beautiful!!

Being a teacher, it’s required that we go to the 8th  grade graduation ceremony each June.   It’s in the evening and in the church, so each year I wear a dress...which, I’m not gonna lie, is rare for me on the daily! But I like dressing up!

This year, I think I plan on wearing  the same thing I wore to my cousin’s wedding this weekend. (As long as the weather cooperates!  This 50° in May baloney is just plain crazy!!) Being in a church though, I’ll be wearing a trusty cardigan with it as well. Most likely a cream colored ¾  sleeve one! So my shoulders are covered!

This was the perfect dress for a wedding in a barn, in the mountains of North Carolina! Where it was 75° and beautiful out! It's simple but I was able to jazz it up with some fun jewels and funky wedges, which truth be told didn't last long!

Before I head out take a peek at at recap of last week's super fun look on all the Blended Bloggers.

Don't forget to link up your graduation look with us this week!! No blog? No problem. Hashtag a graduation/dressy look on insta and across all social media using #theblendedblogstyle!

  16. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
    hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
    seperti saya coba hubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI pasti akan di bantu Oleh Beliau
