What to Wear: Graduation Ceremony

I can’t believe that my graduation is less than a month away! Time certainly flies. With the graduation ceremony less than a month away (May 7th is the exact date), I need to start thinking about what I am going to wear. Now, I am either going to wear my nude or black pumps…I know this much. Now, let’s find the perfect dress. For a graduation ceremony, whether it is indoors or outdoors, you want something comfortable, light, and breezy. Most graduation robes are black, but it is nice to wear white, pastels, or something springy. Let’s take a look at some contenders.
