High School Reunion...What to wear...

No, not mine...mine was about 4 years ago and I had just delivered my son about 30 days prior. Let's just say I was breastfeeding like a madwomen and exercising as soon as a was even remotely able. It was all good. I had whittled myself down to my almost former self, and was feeling pretty good about things. The blouse-y, silky, handkerchief style halter top was in so I was able to hide my not quite shrunk uterus under that. My butt was already regulation size by then since I have exceptional genetics in that department (thanks grandma Margaret!)

This reunion is cool because the pressures off and I have no expectations or anticipation regarding seeing people who have been out of my life for 10 years...these people were never in my life. I get to go and watch my husband experience all those feelings while I sip on some sort of alcoholic beverage...can't wait!

Of course the real question is "What am I going to wear?" At first I was thinking some sort of linen pant with a wedge espadrille shoe and a sleeveless blouse a la J. Crew or Anthro. Then I saw Jennifer Aniston on Oprah. When does black ever not look appropriate on Jennifer Aniston...NEVER!




Its just to bad I couldn't find a picture that showed the rest of her outfit.
But just like anything else she wears it was black and chic.

THEN
I saw Katie Holmes on the cover of ELLE.



It pretty much solidified my desire for something super simple and chic, and potentially black.


Chich in shorts perhaps?



Apparently if I want to emulate Jennifer Aniston all I need are some awesome boot cut jeans and a plethora of scarves



Ok, but this one is my FAVORITE!!




AND I love love love this Emmersonmade dress!!





Somehow I gotta find a way to parlay all of this fashion sense into an outfit for this occasion.

Love the Emmersonmade dress too. Everyone wears black to those things, blue will be something different and still smashing.
