WHAT TO WEAR: Celebration

The end of the semester has come, and you know what that means: it’s time to celebrate with those who have received diplomas and are about to enter the real world. Although you’re done with classes and ready to relax by the pool all day, you may have to put away the bikini for a few hours and make an appearance at a few celebrations. Get ready to break out the summer dresses and strappy sandals and show off your sun-kissed skin from the first few beach days of the season. Whether it is a celebration with your closest friends or a gathering with the family, you can never go wrong with a sundress.

This Fashionista is wearing her favorite Free People dress with a classic pair of Dolce Vita wedges that would go well with any look. The subtle pattern and light material makes the dress both fun and comfortable to wear when the midday sun is beating down in full force. Summer is my favorite season because it’s time to break out the sandals that have been hidden away at the back of the closet during the winter. While some prefer to give themselves a little height boost with a wedge, opting for a strappy sandal is an easy solution for those who were gifted with the tall genes. In addition, the sandal look gives the outfit a more casual feel. With a few simple accessories, a cross-body bag for the necessities of the day and the right pair of shoes, it is easy to make any dress perfect for a party. This Fashionista is ready to celebrate the graduates in style!
