Every year we go to a strawberry social at this time of year called the "Bergman Brunch." The dress code is "white, if convenient." The food is a funny mix of down-home burgers (veggie, meat, and chicken) and fancy desserts, with sparkling wine. And the guests are a mix of professors, young and older, "kids" from 3 months to 33, and the odd assortment of artsy types.

Here are 3 years of my outfits.

  1. One of my very first YLF postings. A discount store shell, a reclaimed sari silk skirt, and red sandals. (Those shoes were cute, but they never would stay on, alas...)
  2. Last year, my white Kut Diana skinnies, my fuchsia silk blazer, a linen top and cami. It was a relatively cool and cloudy day. I was not happy with the footwear with this, but they were the only wedge sandals I had, and a wedge was required due to the venue.
  3. Today. My white shorts, Clarks sandals, white belt, and J. Crew butterfly print T, with my blue bag. Bug spray, sunnies, hat in the bag. (Bleah to the bug spray!!)

So. What would you say about this style evolution judging from these photos?
