A REQUEST! What Do I Wear to My Class Reunion!?!?

I've been debating this question for the past few days, and I'm not sure why the thought never occurred to me -- why not ask my most stylish and knowledgeable friends online?

Up until about Tuesday of this week, I was fully confident about what I was planning on wearing to my 10 year class reunion.  It was to take place at a little house/event center on the River in my hometown.  I expected the reunion to be laid back, relaxed, and just a bit out of my comfort zone in the sense that the majority in my small Texas town wear Wranglers and boots.  That's not to say they don't have their own style...its just not mine.  Did I mention that the invitations demand: "BYOB"?

And that second "B" doesn't stand for Beverages, believe me.

Because the event was taking place indoors in October, I was planning on classing it up just a bit in a high-waisted A-lined black skirt (it makes me go twirl...though I really dislike that picture) and a lovely fuschia frilly top with some simple black heels.  And as casual as that is...I still thought I might be a little dressy.

I am a BIG advocate of being overdressed rather than underdressed, however. 

Everything has changed, now.

Apparently due to "low funds" the reunion is being moved to the actual park itself...under a pavilion.  In October.  With a 25% chance of rain (but still a high of 83).

Please tell me, dear Readers, WHAT THE HECK DO I WEAR now?!?

Did I mention I'm packing tonight?!  Thanks so much for your help!


  1. You are definitely in need of some cute flat boots! I don't know if this idea seems too informal, but if all else fails, a cute pair of boots and a flowy dress would be very cute. Definitely some sort of flat or substantial heel because you will hate yourself if you stilettos keep digging into the grass!

  2. Ooh, I love the idea of boots and a dress. Or jeans, a "fancy" tee, and a blazer with cute flats. But the 83 degrees kind of makes the blazer seem like overkill....

  3. I'd stick with my LBD and dress it down a bit with tall flat boots. That way you are both high and low chic!



I love to hear from you!
