Tomorrow, Husband and I will travel with my grandmother to Santa Fe to see my brother be graduated from college. It’s a big day. There will be many tears! I’m bringing my hankie.
In preparation for the day, Mom and I were discussing what to wear. Of course.
The thing is, this graduation is outside. In the sun, on the plaza or something at the school. A week ago, the weather was supposed to be extra warm and sunny so I was worried about getting burned. I really wanted a hat to wear, a la the royal wedding and Kentucky Derby. An outdoor hippy graduation ceremony would be the perfect thing!
So I checked eBay.
And I kind of went overboard.
I found a few hats that I liked and entered my bid. And ended up with both of them. That wasn’t supposed to happen!
This brown one is so adorable – big and floppy and sure to keep the sun out of my face. But it’s awfully big. I think I can fold it and put it in my carry on. I picked the brown one because it would match a bunch of my sundresses.
Then, I got to thinking. Maybe I wasn’t going to wear brown. Maybe I should wear black pants and a cute top instead. So that’s where this one came in. The ribbon and bow are polka dots!
This black one is a little more subdued, don’t you think? It’s also a bit easier to transport because it’s crushable.
Now, the weather is supposed to be cooler than normal and not exactly crazy sunny. So do I really need a hat? I don’t know. I’m thinking the sundresses won’t make it either.
So yeah, I still have no idea what I’m wearing and we leave tomorrow. I hate packing.
