Class Reunion outfit help: Part 2

These are outfits I'm considering for Saturday day of my reunion. This is an Old Settlers Day type event with parade that I may be riding in. I based these on my black Kut Diana skinny jeans and DV ankle strap flats for comfort. It should be a warm sunny day. The first 1/2 feature a crossover top (Pleione ) and the 3/4 a silk DVF tee. I have other choices and if you have seen me in other casual outfits that you like better, let me know. I need total honesty. I'm not trying to impress, just try to look my best for meeting up with old friends.

    Joy, you look drop dead gorgeous in both outfits! I would bring both tops and decide perhaps based on weather. Does one work better with a topper (if needed)? Will you need the sun coverage of sleeves (in which case your answer is obvious).

    Woohoo totally agreeing with Suz!!

    You look fabulous in both outfits Joy. How fun to be riding in the parade :)

  • Firecracker replied 4 years ago

    Both are gorgeous on you, Joy. For a warm sunny day, would the short sleeves in option 2 be more comfortable? I don't know how else to choose!

  • lynn replied 4 years ago

    I agree with the others--you look gorgeous! Either top is great so take both and choose for the weather. Have fun!

  • Nebraskim replied 4 years ago

    Both are great. I am a fan of stripes, so I vote 1/2. But you'll dazzle in either look.

  • Sal replied 4 years ago

    Yes they both look wonderful, I would go with the best option for the weather.

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    It will be easy to pack both tops plus I can add a black silk layer under the striped top if it is cold, although I doubt it will be. Thank you!

    1/2--totes amazeballs.

  • shiny replied 4 years ago

    Either one. But you asked for honesty, so I'll be honest here.

    There's something in my head that associates animal print CLOTHING (not accessories) with ... old people. I cannot get over this association which is why I am only apt to indulge in animal prints in small accessorizing doses for fear of it aging or dating me.

    Thing is, you look utterly fantastic in that top, not aging at all... and I am being utterly 100% honest here and not just trying to flatter you. 

    Hence I am so conflicted. 

    I <3 you Joy because you are always breaking down my preconceptions. For that reason alone, you should wear #2! LOL

  • Debbie replied 4 years ago

    Again I have not read the rest of the replies. I love outfit 1/2. You look wonderful!

  • catgirl replied 4 years ago

    I can't choose between these two so I'd let the temperatures decide for you.  Both are stunning and flattering.

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    I like the idea of taking both tops and checking the weather. I could even end up wearing one in the morning and the other in the afternoon.
    Shiny,I know what you mean about older women and leopard, especially. I have to be careful not to wear it around my students, although having a 10 year old ask me if I'm a cougar had me in stitches. I told him it was a compliment.

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    Another vote for #1. PERFECT. xo

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 4 years ago

    I love #1, and love the ankle strap flats!

  • Day Vies replied 4 years ago

    Both are fantastic -- chic, modern and crisp. (Marking as a favorite). It's hard for me to choose between them but #3&4 wins by a hair. It just has an edge that I like.
