personal style : grad celebration

This weekend played host to a number of graduation parties and other festivities and, currently in the Midwest, we seem to be playing tag with warmer weather. One day it's 90 and the next, 75. With that comes warmer days and afternoons, but much cooler nights...which poses quite the dilemma when choosing the perfect ensemble to transition day-night!

I originally thought I would pair my J.Crew royal blue paper bag waist shorts with a black and white thicker striped tank because of the warmer 80 degree afternoon, but after seeing that a cooler 60 degrees would end the evening, I decided to rethink the tank. Instead, I opted for a chunkier knit, black and white striped sweater- equal parts cool on the bottom to combat the warmer afternoon weather and warmer on the top to compensate for the dropping evening temp!
And, of course, had to add in a statement piece- necklace.
