One of my top three blog posts of all time is What to Wear to a Graduation. In that post I not only shed some light on what I consider to be appropriate attire for graduation ceremonies, I debuted the first maxi dress I bought.

I picked up a few jersey knit dresses to wear in the summer, I got one in black, one in green and one in lavender. I found that I would pull the black or green dresses out of the closet over the lavender one. Every time.

I like the other ones when I’m wearing them, but not this one. Maybe it’s the lighter color? Anyway, this one has been in the refashion pile for awhile.
