Congrats, Jordan and an Outfit

This is what I wore to my brother, Jordan's high school graduation today. It was in the 80's and the gym where the ceremony was held had no air conditioning! I had planned on a different outfit but I knew I would need something that would breathe a little more after being there for the baccalaureate last night and sweating like crazy! It was gross. So anyway, that's why I chose this look. Am I the only woman who hates strapless bras?? It seems no matter how tight they are, they fall down all the time. I'm always trying to find discreet ways to pull it up without looking tacky, you know?? 

tube top - H&M
asymmetrical skirt - Express
wedges - Dolce Vita for Target
hoop earrings - Bebe
bangles - H&M
statement ring - Target {not pictured, sorry}

Just for fun, here are some photos of my awesome family today after the graduation ceremony.

Me and the graduate!
I couldn't be more proud of Jordan! He has just graduated from probably the most prestigious and rigorous high school program in the state. Academically he performed outstanding, and he's one of the best running backs in the state in football! July 11 he's leaving to Eastern Washington University on a football scholarship where he will study pre-medicine. He's so driven! Also, Jordan and I are very close!! We are ten years apart but it really doesn't feel like it! Usually when I go to my parents' to spend the night, it's to hang out with him. We stay up most of the night having serious conversations mixed with a lot of laughter and jokes! He's such a clown- one of those quick-witted people who's got a joke for everything. he's a lot of fun!! Ok, I'll stop bragging now. I'm so blessed.

Dad, Jordan and Mom
The four of us- Jason, Jordan, Me, Chris {Chris is getting married in 20 days!}
Isn't my family beautiful? I adore these handsome boys!! 

How was your weekend?? 

Have a question?? Formspring Me. I promise to answer!


  1. Congrats to your brother, Mine graduated this Friday too. I felt old ...were also ten years apart. 

  2. Congrats to Jordan!

  4. I love the color of the skirt! Congrats to your brother :)

  5. Congrats to your brother! Your family looks lovely, dear! :)

    About the bra thing, same problem here...*sigh*

    I love the sandals, they look great on surely got the legs for 'em ;)

  6. Ooh, big congrats to your brother!  You looked *great* in spite of having to dress for no-air conditioning.  Isn't that the worst? I can be all dressed up for something but if I find out I'm heading towards a hot and steamy sweatfest you'll find me in a tank and shorts in two seconds flat.  I might even accessorize and top it off with my fiercest grumpy face, too. Ugh.

    But seriously--great outfit. If I tried to wear that, I'd look like a misshapen tube of sausage.  You're so in shape and it fits you to a T!

  7. awww they are so cute!!! he sounds like a pretty legit athlete. and you look cute too, i LOVE the shoes! glad you had a fun weekend

  8. I really love how you show so much love for your family. Best of wishes for Jordan's future. Cute shoes as well. -xo

  9. You look beautiful :)  I also had my youngest sibling (my sister's) graduation this weekend!  I was such a proud older sister! 

  10. Love the skirt, and hate strapless bras too. But even more than that, I hate visible bra straps unless they are done Gwen Stefani-style, and only for casual wear.

    Your brother is a cutie...congrats to him!

  11. congrats to your brother!! i am with you on the strapless bras, i can't stand them! i always thought i was alone in this struggle ;)

  12. Nice color blocking!! and BTW, do a post about how to tone the arms like yourself!!! You look gorgeous!

  13. Lovely photos! Congrats to Jordan and Chris as well! You are a good looking crew for sure! Love your outfit, and yes, I hate strapless bras. :)

  14. Congratulations to your brother! You must be so proud- you guys look like a great close knit family! and very attractive ;). Love your skirt and those shoes are too cute!

  15. Thank you!! I actually did a Fit Tuesday post a few weeks ago on arms. Go look on my Fitness page and click on the Fit Tuesday ~ Arms post. :)

  16. Yay!! Congrats to your brother!!! Thats so awesome. I love your pictures together and of your family. You look amazing, Krystle :)

  17. Congrats to Jordan!!  I feel like such a bum but maybe I should not compare myself to super smart/athletic teenage boys, haha.  So yeah the strapless bras are nothing but a huuuuge pain, but if I had arms/shoulders like yours I would never want straps getting in the way so I'd deal  ;)

  18. I have the same problem with strapless bras in fact I never really wear them for that reason. Well done to Jordan, you must be so proud and it is fabulous that you have such a great friendship with your brother.

  19. Congratulations on your brother's graduation! My sister just graduated from high school this past Monday so I totally understand being the proud big sister!  Yes, strapless can be a pain!  I can't wear them for long periods  of time.

    Love the outfit girl! That skirt is a gorgeous color!

  20. Congrats to your brother.  Love your wedges.

  21. Congratulations to your brother! I love this time of year when everyones graduating. Great wedges, those are awesome!
