WIW: ROG outfit for Tuesday ETA photos and confession

I'm posting this ROG outfit that I plan to wear tomorrow before it disappears. I don't own these pieces but have something similar.
Photos added.
1: couldn't resist hat as in find. This shows shoe option 1, leopard kitten heel pumps. The rest show round toe flats.
Confession: I'd sworn never to buy Crocs, but needed indoor shoes for Boulder and saw these at the Rack. They are perfect also for mornings outside in wet grass with my coffee. I am seriously considering the ones in the find but there are higher priorities for my budget right now.
I welcome your thoughts. Is the denim jacket working here? It is my largest one, so I could go more cropped or a different wash.

WIW: ROG pick and ROG variations on polkadot skirt

I may post this in sections as I keep getting logged out. For this week I want to try a week of ROG outfits. Most are wearable. For Sunday I wanted a skirt outfit and ROG often chooses my black and white Classiques Entiere silk skirt. I wore #1. The skirt is paired with a long sleeved white tee, long black vest, nude pumps, and greenish bag. 2 is with the shirt out. 3 is shirt semi-tucked. Which is best? Improvements?
4-5 are another ROG outfit featuring the same skirt and top, this time the topper is a denim jacket, pumps are black, and bag is bright red. 4 is tucked version and 5 is untucked.
Then we have a third ROG idea with this skirt. The top is an oversized linen EF blue tee. Black Elliot Lucus bag and black EF Allot flats. The topper called for a black moto. I show my fabric version then leather.
6 untucked tee, fabric moto, 7 untucked.
8-9. Leather moto
I welcome any advice you have on any of these stylings. Yes, I need to get to the gym after 2+ months away!
I will come back to add finds.

Fashion Era Challenge: inspired by 60's and 70's

Photos 1/2 are an attempt at 70's with old BR Urban Bootcut jeans, silky bow blouse with vest and chunky heeled sandals.
3/4 is supposed to look more late 60's with a peasant blouse (Lucky) and "love beads" and the same bootcut jeans, this time with strappy wedge sandals.
5-7 shows some wide 70's BR woolen trousers that I wore yesterday. The top is probably not right. I should have taken the photo of the sweater underneath tucked in. Shoes are peeptoes Pikolinos, about the only thing I had for the color and heel height with these trousers. I did wear this with my 70's long leather coat in #8. ( not the same outfit underneath)

Help! What does one wear to a 50th Class Reunion??

I am desperately needing your ideas and inspiration for deciding what to wear for my 50th high school reunion in late September in a town on the Great Plains where the weather can be anything at this time of year.
I feel so much pressure to try with two or three outfits to show who I am . I am not out to impress or look young or alluring, but would like to look modern. No dress code has been mentioned but most will be casual. There is a dinner but on the casual side...indoors with BBQ. For this I would like to wear a dress but nothing cocktail. Unless it's hot, I don't have a suitable dress though. It is Homecoming, so there is floatbuilding scheduled, also a parade and game.
I would greatly appreciate any thoughts you have. What would you wear? Or take to wear? (This is a car trip, so not limited to a carry-on.)

Inspired by Annagybe's vision of citron, grey and sky blue

Anna saw a color combo on So You Think You Can Dance that she thought someone should try.
http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....or-someone
Here are a couple of attempts this morning.
1. Basic citron and grey worn around the house.
2. Different shoes and I used the aqua bag in #3 with this to run errands.
3. Showing various versions of what I could find for the blue...light wash denim jacket, aqua sandals, aqua bag.
4. Another option with Taylor aqua cropped cardi.
Anna, I'm not sure what shade of grey or if I have the right blue, but this was fun. I will try other versions as I find them. Does any of this work?
Shirt: Pleione dove silk
Belt: Calvin Klein Jeans distressed silver leather
Jeans: Target
Grey athletic flats: DKNY; grey wedges: MeToo; aqua sandals: no brand Italian leather (thrifted)
Bag: Consignment
