Yes, there are many choices out there. The current style seems to be blouses large and sloppy enough to hide any flaws one chooses to; short and wide tops, many in the most outrageous prints. Oh, to be sure, there were a few in soft linen and nice colors but I can't get past the largeness of them.
These ridiculous tops are paired with equally large skirts with uneven hemlines. This is not my style or preference. Or one could choose pants, usually capri-style, which I also don't like.
So....what shall I wear?
I imagine I'll pull out one of my LBDs. Boring? Perhaps. But it is, after all, my favorite look and I think it might work for the occasion. There's to be no particular dress code for the event, and I'm sure there'll be no shortage of looks on display -- everything from casual capris and tees, to church dresses/suits, to swinging chiffon numbers.
I could wear my LBD with a rounded neckline
Or the one with a V-neck
I might accessorize with my classic strand of real pearls
or jazz it up with my clunky costume pearls
Or would this be better?
Of course, I might make my large pearl studs the only jewelry and throw on the white linen scarf which also serves as a wrap in coolish rooms
Oh dear, and what about shoes?
Do I wear the classic black pumps?
And speaking of shoes, the shopping expedition last week wasn't totally unsuccessful, as I bought summer espadrilles. Not for wearing with LBDs, but will serve me well with jeans and summer skirts.
Wait, I also bought a second pair, something soft and comfy but still somewhat stylish
On second thought, maybe I'll just ditch the jewelry and pin a creamy white gardenia on my shoulder......or in my hair.
I don't fret about clothes and outfits all that much these days. But for some reason I'm giving extra thought to what I should wear to the reunion.
