Happy Monday! Today’s outfit is something I wore recently for an event with JJ. He was the keynote speaker at UCF’s Masters in Social Work graduation and this is what I wore for the ceremony. I knew people would be wearing everything from flip flops to suits (the Florida norm) so I went with a mix. I wore a professional lightweight wool sheath (part of J.Crew’s “suit” collection) and made it more casual with a colorful purse and necklace, and really comfy shoes because UCF campus always requires a lot of walking. Graduations are one of those events where it's tough to know exactly what the dress code is (can vary greatly by school), so a mix of a professional and not-too-dressed up are my strategy - that way you feel comfortable no matter which way it goes!
