Last night was my daughter's 8th grade graduation.
She gave the valedictory speech to an audience of a couple of hundred people. I will post a bit in off-topic about that in the happy moments thread. But I hope it is okay to show what she wore here, because it is ALL courtesy of my closet, and all, in turn, courtesy of YLF.
The event was a family BBQ, followed by the presentations. It was not formal, but graduates had been asked to dress nicely.
My daughter is the definition of a tomboy. She usually wears very baggy boyfriend jeans and loose Ts. And getting her to dress up or even try on different silhouettes is a major pain.
But last night, she knew exactly what she wanted to wear. And she put it on without a minute's hesitation.
For the dinner: My linen shirt, my white jeans, my white Cons.
For her presentation: The Equipment kitty shirt, my white jeans, my white Cons.
